    Specs:
    iMac, 21.5",OSX, 10.9.5. Mavericks. Late 2012. Processor 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5. Memory 8GB.
    DVD Burning.
    I've been looking around trying to find why I'm having so much trouble trying to burn a DVD. I found a thread by Joymax8 and I think I'm in more or less the same position as him.

    I have a bought dvd that's not copyrighted and I burnt it to the hard drive with HandBrake-0.9.8-MacOSX.6_GUI_x86_64.dmg. All well and good so far, but I can't find a way to put it on a dvd-r with this programme. When I went to the download page of "Burn" it looked as though it didn't go with my system. I couldn't see what system Joymax has got, but mine is:
    21.5-inch, Late 2012,
    Processor 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M 512 MB
    Software OS X 10.8.2 (12C2034)

    Can anyone help a new old boy out please.
    Pete.

    This is the version you need:

    Download Burn from SourceForge.net

    Or, if you want something more robust, you can try Toast, though it's not inexpensive:

    Roxio Toast 11 Titanium - CD, DVD, Blu-Ray Burning Software Program for Mac
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    If you just want a straight copy of your dvd without any editing, then you can use Disk Utility, which should be in the Utilities Folder in your Applications folder.

    Open Disk Utility, select the dvd and choose "New Image". When that image is complete, drag it into the left hand pane below the divider, insert blank dvd and select "Burn".

    This won't work for protected/copyrighted dvds.

    Thanks for the help and sorry I've been so long getting back... cars deciding to go on strike, one getting some rust cut out and the other thinking "now would be a good time to play up"

    Anyway, I gave up with the dvd and went to youtube where I downloaded the very same thing and finished up with it on a dvd, which was what I was aiming for.

    Thanks again.

    Ps: I will look at toast... when I've saved up.
    Pete.
