    It depends on what kind of DVD you want to burn.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I like to use Roxio Toast for my burning needs.

    Actually, I'm just trying to burn a data DVD that will work on other people's Macs with OSX. It contains an Adobe Director movie with its own player. So it's just a matter of copying the Director files to the DVD. Problem is, my drive just ejects a blank recordable DVD.

    As I understand it, I should be able to just put a blank DVD into the drive, it will read it, and a window will open with options for me to select files and burn them to the DVD.

    Right? Wrong?

    Thanks.

    You need to create a "Burn Folder". In any Finder window, go to the File menu and click "New Burn Folder". This should create a folder. You can then drop items to be burned to a disc onto the folder and then click the BURN button near the top right of the window.

    That's it for a data disc.
