Like DB stated, you can use Finder for data and iTunes for music. If you want a program that is like Nero and does it all, Roxio Toast. I am a Nero lover also and Toast was easy to get used to after years of Nero on the PC.

Toast 6 works for me evertytime. But I use toast 8 for direct cd to cd burning with my imac. I don't like version 8 but version 6 doesn't do that cd to cd burning I sometimes need.

Toast 8 is good, but maybe to over the top in many cases. I never use Disco, because I hardly burn discs as such, but I have it (because I got it free) and it seems to be pretty sweet.
