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.

  1. First, and foremost, insert your blank CD-R/CD-RW or DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD-DL disc into the slot on your Mac.
  2. You should then see an icon on your Desktop that says “Untitled CD” or “Untitled DVD”.
  3. Click on the Finder icon in your dock.
  4. In the new Finder window that comes up, select the”Untitled CD” or “Untitled DVD” folder from the sidebar.
  5. Drag the files, folders, applications, or whatever you want into the CD or DVD folder in Finder.
  6. Then click on the Burn button located in the top right corner.
  7. In the pop-up window, type in a suitable Disc Name and select a Burn Speed.
  8. Once you’ve done that, click on the Burn button.
  9. Once the disc is done burning, it should eject from the computer.
