Hi all,

I am still playing with my new iMac 20" Core duo and I love it. However I have one question. I cannot find any software that comes with the iMac to burn data to a cd. I know that iTunes will burn a music album but what if I want to backup different documents to a CD or DVD? Is there any software that is bundled that I can use or do I have to buy something like Toast or Nero?

If I do have to buy something then what is the best software to buy???


Thanks all for your help.

Regards

Cheese

Burning Data to a CD is built right into the OS.
All you need to do is, right click/control-click in any filespace (the finder, or the desktop), and choose "New Burn Folder..."
Drop any Data into this folder. Open it, you'll see a "burn" button just like in itunes.

Have fun.
