    Burning data onto a dvd
    Hi - this is a total noob question. I'm still getting used to my iMac.

    I've about some .avi files that i'd like to backup on a dvd. I've tried using iDVD and iMovie to backup my files but i've been unsuccessful.

    If anyone can give me a few hints on how to go about backing up data on a dvd/cd using the iMac i'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    Right click, select "new burn folder." Drag files you want to back up into the folder. It doesnt actually move the files, just creates a shortcut to its location. Insert disc and hit burn.
