Burn a disc from Finder.
Mac OS 10.3 or later has the ability to burn CDs and DVDs directly from a Finder window. The easiest way to do this is through a "Burn Folder". Follow the procedure below to do this.
- From the Finder Menu bar, click File, then New Burn Folder. A new folder will appear in the Finder window focused on, or on the desktop if there are no windows open.
- Drag-and-drop files into the burn folder, and click the burn button in the upper-right corner of the Window.
- A prompt will appear requesting a blank CD or DVD. This disc can be placed in any connected drive capable of burning a disc. There is no configuration required to specify which drive to use.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not erase or otherwise try to manipulate the files that are being burned while the burn is in progress.
