    Copy the files onto your hard drive and then make a new burn folder in Finder(File>new burn folder). Paste them in there, put in a blank CD, and press burn at the top right corner.

    Hope I could help

    You should use either Disk Utility http://docs.info.apple.com/article.h...5/en/8764.html

    or Freeware applications like
    Burn http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/
    Simply Burns http://simplyburns.berlios.de/
    LiquidCD http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/28483

    There are more but I can't think of them..

    Hope this helps !
