    recommended software for burning dvd
    Hi,
    I recently discovered my MacBook Pro 13" mid-2012 can burn dvds. I'd like a recommendation for software that will work on this MacBook running OS 10.11.6
    I looked in the application folder and didn't see anything like idvd. Is there another program hiding in plain sight?
    thanks,
    chris

    This article covers several different ways to burn CDs/DVDs using software already on your mac. The screenshots may be just a bit different depending upon OS version but the steps are the same. There's also the free program Burn.

    If your burning needs are more complicated you may find Roxio Toast useful but it's not free. I've used it for years but probably won't upgrade on the next release. I just don't burn enough DVDs anymore to justify the cost.

    I've used all three methods. I often use Toast because I have it but, of the free stuff, I find Burn easiest. It's not that using the built-in tools are difficult it's just that every time I use that method I have to look up the steps. lol.
