Hi

Stupid question probably but hey..........

I regularly back up my itunes and iphoto libraries to DVD but have all my spreadsheets and documents backed up to a flash drive at present.

How to I go about getting them onto a disc instead though?

I can't seem to find any way to drag and drop or copy items onto CD/DVD.

Thanks, Nick

If you use Toast you can back them up as data.

From Finder --> File --> Burn " foldername " to disc

You can also create a " Burn Folder " and drag files into that and then burn onto disc.

Finder can do it all for you.

Hope this helps

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 ?

Toast is proprietary disk burning software, and it isn't free. It is arguably the best around, but free burning applications like the one that is already part of OS X will do the job adequately, also freeware such as Burn.

A suggestion - if you use DVD-RWR (rewrite) disks, you can update files that need doing, whereas with once-only write disks (DVD-RW) you cannot delete and then rewrite. If the documents are valuable, make sure you purchase high-quality disks (eg. Imation).
