Hey, I was just wondering if I'll have to download a free ISO burner from the Internet or if my MBP comes with a pre-installed software to be able to burn these types of files? Thanks for the help!

I don't know of any free ones, but there may be some. I just use Toast.

How much does Toast cost?

EDIT: Nvm, haha I've gotten so lazy, I'll find the answer to my question faster than you'll probably reply!

It's about $99 or so. Look at the Roxio web site and see....

Its called Disk Utility, go to Finder>Applications> Utilities folder> Disk Utility.

Then go to file>open disk image> select the image you want to burn. It'll appear over in the left hand column under your hard drives, select it, then click BURN in the upper left hand corner.

Disk utility will burn .iso images. Open Disk utility. Drag your .iso file into the disk utility icon in the dock. It will appear in the left hand column. Insert blank writable media device, and hit burn in the upper left hand corner.

OR: Just noticed mynameis posted similar instructions. The one I posted is a bit faster, either way it will work.

I bought toast to try it out. I was going to return it if I didnt like it, it is a little expensive....Once I started using it, I didn't even think about returning it

What can you do with it that you can't do with OS X?

I like toast because it can burn Flac files natively, allows simple backups of my dvd's that I rip (Autocompression to fit on a single layer disc)

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

I like toast because it can burn VIDEO_TS folders easily. But, anything I can do, I will do in Disk Utility (mainly because toast isn't universal).
