Ways to burn Discs with Finder and Disk Utility in Mac (versions OS X 10.4 -...


Without purchasing new disc burning software, there are actually 3 ways to burn CDs & DVDs in your Mac OS X system (Mac OS X 10.3-10.6)

There are methods using Finder and Disk Utility.

Both are easy to do and when set up to use will have you burning music, video, data, and image files (ISO) to CDs or DVDs in no time at all.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BURNING DISKS WITH FINDER

1.) Create a Burn folder and burn a CD/DVD

* The easiest way to burn a disc with Finder is to create a Burn folder with Finder. Here's how you do that:

* Click on any blank space on your desktop and in an instant, Finder will appear on the Apple menu bar next to the Apple menu icon.
• Click on File and select from the drop down menu

* This distinctive folder will now appear on your Desktop

597c898.png


* Now insert a blank CD or DVD and in moments, you will see this window pop up:

• Just click the OK button.


* In a few more moments
on your desktop, you will see this Untitled DVD (or "CD: for CD-ROM Disks) icon:

• Now you can either drag and drop files into the folder, or just double-click the folder and also drag and drop files into the open Burn Folder window

* If you notice, each file you drag (or copy and paste) into the Burn Folder window will have a small curved arrow at the bottom left corner of the file.
That is merely a designation that the file is a image of the actual file and ready to be burned to the CD or DVD you use.

* Notice the Burn button (highlighted in the red box). This is the button you will press, to commence the burn (or copying) of the data you have placed in the burn folder to be copied to disk.

• Click the Burn button, name your disk and that is all it takes. When the process is complete, you will now see a formerly Untitled Disk icon on your desktop replaced with a "Your_new_disc_name" DVD.

(Additional Note: If you wish, you can also simply bypass creating a Burn folder, insert a blank CD or DVD and simply drag and drop or copy and paste files into the open window of the Untitled CD as well.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BURNING A DISC WITH DISK UTILITY

There are actually two ways to burn data to an DVD or CD with Disk Utility:

1.) Burn a disk in Disk Utility

* Simply open Disk Utility by either clicking anywhere on a blank space on your Desktop window and Finder will appear near your Apple menu, select Go >Utilities and that will take you to the Utilities Folder which is the default location of the Disk Utility application.

* Or you can click the Finder icon on your Dock, open a new Finder window, click on "Applications" listed in the side window and select the Utilities folder

* Either way, you will land here.

• Insert your CD or DVD.

* Once you open Disk Utility, you will see this main window

* Now all you need to do is click the "Burn" button located on the Disk Utility toolbar.

* For an example, I am striving to burn a copy of my Quicken .dmg file to CD.

* Once I have selected the file, then I click the Burn button located at the bottom right corner of the Finder window.

* Follow the onscreen instructions to start the burn process.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Creating a multi-session disk using Disk Utility:
Now it is known, that one cannot burn more than once with a single CD-R disc, but it can be done as provide from the knowledge base of Apple support:
  • In the Finder, create a folder for the session and drag the items you want to burn into the folder.
  • In Disk Utility, choose File > New > "Disk Image fromFolder." Then select the folder you created in the dialog and clickOpen.
  • Type a name for the image, choose a disk format, and click Save. Mac OS Extended allows burning the disc more than once. Formats such as ISO allow burning the disc only once.
  • When the disk image is complete, select it in the Disk Utility list and choose images > Burn or click Burn in the toolbar.
  • Insert a blank CD in the optical drive.
  • Select the "Leave disc appendable" checkbox. If you don't see this option, click the triangle in the top-right corner.
  • Click Burn.
What is really nice about this CD/DVD burn feature of DIsk Utility, is that now you can come back later and add more files to the same CD without having to waste all the space on a new CD-R.

This especially useful, if the image file you are need to burn is small in capacity. Just pop the previously burned CD in your drive and add that file or files until that CD is filled to capacity- that is all it takes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So there you have it, a quick tip on how to use Finder and Disk Utility to burn any data to your CD and DVDs.

Thanks for viewing my Mac OS X tip from FixYa Support. Stay tuned for more tips for how to make the most of your Mac OS X systems!

Reset password admin


I could suggest you search for this under "Apple password reset" since I've written the solution several times in the last month, but for you, I'll do it again:
You need to find Disk 1 of the operating system install disk set. The install disk set doesn't need to be the one that came with the computer, so long as it is OS 10.2 to OS 10.5 (PPC). However, some install disks are not compatible with the resolution setting of the graphics chip in some eMacs, so you may have difficulty reading the display.
The reset procedure is as follows: Turn on the eMac, open the optical (CD or DVD) drive and place Disk 1 in it, then close the drive. Restart the eMac. As soon as the startup chime sounds, immediately hold down the option key and continue to hold it until a disk icon appears on the screen. Wait until the optical disk icon also shows up. Click on the optical disk icon, then click the arrow button. This will boot up the computer to the install disk.
When the computer boots up to the install program, DO NOT DO ANYTHING IN THE INSTALL PROGRAM. Look in the Apple menu for the Reset password... item. You should see a selector menu for the account(s) on the computer. Select the administrator account and enter the new password (it can be left blank if you know nobody else will ever mess with your computer). Confirm the password, then quit and restart without holding down any keys.
The computer should restart normally and you can log in to the administrator account with the new password. So long as you remember the new password, you can change it at any time using the "Accounts" pane in System Preferences.

IMac Missing operating system screen


The CD was most likely not burned in the correct way that Apple requires for OS installs. You can't just simple "copy" a system disk.

Try getting a hold of an actual legitimate copy of the OS and try again. This is not generally a problem when actual system disks are used.

Opening apps


I assume you running some version of OS X; you did not specify.
A .exe file is a Windows executable (program). It will not run in the Mac OS unless you have Parallels. (Don't feel bad; the Windows people can't run anything for Mac.)
You should be able to double-click on a dmg file and have it mount as a virtual disk drive. First, go to the Finder Preferences and make sure the External disks are included in the items to be shown on the Desktop. If you don't get a new Finder window when you try to open a .dmg file, check your desktop for the disk image icon (it looks like a picture of a white USB external floppy disk drive without a slot on the front). Open that and you should see the files.

How do I get an iMac running lion to read the installation CD for a Breother MFC-J615W printer?


You may need to set the preference so the disk shows up on the desktop. First click on the FINDER icon. THat is the icon in the dock that looks like a smiley face. Then click on the FINDER menu in the upper left corner and choose PREFERENCES. There are several check boxes, make sure you check the one for CDs. Your disk might appear on the desktop.
If there are other problems you can also download the driver and software for your model directly from brother.

My emac will start up and show a ? marm help me


The ? with a folder means it can find a bootable system file / drive.

Do you have a copy of your Operating System install disc still or a copy of Leopard or Snow Leopard around?

You'll need to boot to the cd (hold down the C key when you power on the system)

From there you can access Disk Utility and attempt to repair the drive.

Let me know what you're working with and I'll help you out the best I can.
