A DVD - R disk means DVD Read disk, therefore, in order to burn a DVD you will need a DVD RW (meaning Read + Write)

Also, confirm if you DVD drive accepts DVD(-) and / or DVD(+) disks

you cant burn a disk with a dvd rom
you will need both a dvd rw unit and a dvd rw disk to burn any video to a disk if you have both of these the burning program might not support video burning or you might not have selected the right option there are lots of free burning software programs that can burn videos to a disk you might have to burn it as an ISO image

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

9696d88.png

* 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:

b3dbf79.png

• 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:

10ec18d.png


• 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

a4997c2.png


* 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!

Make osx dvd image in mac


Making a DVD Image...............

Step 1. Insert the retail Mac OS X Install DVD into your drive.

Step 2. Launch Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities).

Step 3. In Disk Utility, you will notice a white pane on the left hand side. In the pane, select the Mac OS X Install DVD by clicking on it once.

Step 4. Click New Image on the Disk Utility toolbar.

Step 5. A dialog box will appear. Give the new image a name. I used 'Mac OS X Install DVD'. Select the destination where you wish to save it. LeaveImage Format at Compressed (default) and Encryption at None (default).

Step 6. Click Save to begin creating the image.

Step 7. Once your image has been created DO NOT mount it. Leave the image alone and proceed to the next section.



Burning the Image...................

Step 1. Launch Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities).

Step 2. Click Burn on the Disk Utility toolbar (upper left).

Step 3. Navigate to where you saved the DVD image created in the previous section. Click on the image file, then click the Burn button. Do not drag and drop the image file into Disk Utility during this step.

Step5. Insert a DVD when prompted and proceed to Burn it. (use good quality media)

Using these exact steps I was successfully able to create a personal backup copy of Mac OS X Tiger. I hope this tutorial helps. Enjoy the newfound features in Tiger!

I have a super multi GP10 and I don't know how to burn music from my iTunes with it. I can't install the software.


open Itunes in the top left hand corner select file from thdrop down list you will see Library click to open then you should see back up to disk then more options back up entire library to disk
this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an audio cd or your burning software does not support audio burning
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet

Were you able to write a single music or another file using Nero? Were you able to burn the image using the Active ISO burner? Did you try a new fresh blank DVD or are using the same DVD again? Try to free some more space from your C drive and then check again.

I am trying to copy the DVD I finalized in the Canan DC210 to ano


Simple way if you have two dvd trays in your computer: just pop in the mini-disk in one tray and load a DVD+r, or DVD-r recordable disk in the tray of the DVD burner. Use the burning software that is available on your computer to "copy the disk".Other way:Just popin your mini-dvd into your computer and drag and copy the file folder (video_ts folder)onto your hard drive. Now, use dvd burning software that supports DVD images. I use the free ImgBurn program from: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ImgBurn. (Remember, use "build mode" within ImgBurn to create the "DVD image" that the program will burn to disk.Disregard all the terminology if you don't understand it. ImgBurn is very simple to use. I mention "DVD image" because the conventional type of disk burning (copying documents, photos, etc. on disk) will just create a "data disk" with files on it. Video files burned in this way will play on computers but not on all stand alone DVD players.

Up load the images to a folder first. It is best actually to unload any comara related software and leave the disk in the box Let Windows scanner/camera Wizard do the work. Once images are in a folder[ highlight all images and right click to arrange to order. Then burn to DVD By the Way just in case - XP is it your are using? XP does not burn to DVD it has to be a third party software.
