One of the most asked questions I get from new Mac users is, “How do I burn CD’s and DVD’s on a Mac?”. After personally showing some of those people how to burn CD’s and DVD’s, I decided it was time to show my readers as well. Here’s how to burn CD’s and DVD’s on a Mac.
- First, and foremost, insert your blank CD-R/CD-RW or DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD-DL disc into the slot on your Mac.
- You should then see an icon on your Desktop that says “Untitled CD” or “Untitled DVD”.
- Click on the Finder icon in your dock.
- In the new Finder window that comes up, select the”Untitled CD” or “Untitled DVD” folder from the sidebar.
- Drag the files, folders, applications, or whatever you want into the CD or DVD folder in Finder.
- Then click on the Burn button located in the top right corner.
- In the pop-up window, type in a suitable Disc Name and select a Burn Speed.
- Once you’ve done that, click on the Burn button.
- Once the disc is done burning, it should eject from the computer.
