I've just download a student copy of XP from my schools FTP site. Now, I want to copy the files to blank CD. For some reason, when I place a blank CD in the drive, it doesn't mount on the desktop. Why is that?

The Blank CD doesn't mount on the desktop. Now if you want to burn that CD, you can go ahead and either make a burn folder for multiple files, or if you want to burn an ISO, do it through Disk Utility...

Answered my own question. I just created a burn folder and dragged the files into it and burned them from there.

Sorry, I'm new to the Mac world.

Mac Help is awesome.
