In Finder, right click on the folder you copied the files into and select " Burn folder to disc "

Cheers ... McBie

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?

cheers for the reply mate. i tried to drag my movies from the user - movies list into a folder on the desktop(thinking that it would just copy them) then when i tried to burn the folder (failed) i moved the folder to trash and deleted. THEN to my horror i realised iv deleted the bloody movies altogether!!!!

iv ran a data recovery software (freebie) that has located them but i now have to pay for the full version. is there any free data recovery software out there?

Pay for the program. Are these files valuable, or not?

what has happened to the simple way of doing things!!!! on my old naff ibook you could copy and paste and bum - copied images on dvdd/cds/ex hd ext ect

now I'm having issues even bloody copying images from my ipoto library onto a dvd to have as a back up. iv managed o copy on to my ex hd as a backup but after having an ex hd brake a few years ago and all my data lost I'm a bit sceptical now relying on that method alone. WHY o WHY has it all gone digital now, iCloud ect ect back up when all i want to do is copy a blooming image from one place to another! all i get is alias every single time!

I'm proper losing my rag now! why has the simple way of doing things turned so complicated!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLEASE help before i have a nervous brakedown

iv managed to copy the images into a folder on my desktop in the vain hope i could then do - burn folder- but when i do this nothing happens. i then insert a dvd and still nothing. when i then eject the dvd and move the folder of images to trash and empty a message then pops up -

'There are 135 items that can’t be burned because the original items can’t be found. skip the items and continue burning'

Are you wanting a playable DVD or just some backups?

I 2nd this..

While finder can burn stuff to disc. I find Burn app more informative and better suited.
