    When i tried to burn a dvd using finder the custom folder icons i had on the original folder are dissapeared when i opened the dvd i just burned. Is there a way of maintaining the folder custom icons i can place? Perhaps using toast?

    Which icons are we talking about? Those in your home folder? Or some other folder(s).

    Which format did you burn the DVD in?

    Toast is usually good. :)

    I cannot ever remember burning a DVD using Finder, but on a Mac Only DVD I burned using Toast the only folder icon I know I changed was preserved on the DVD. Don't know if they will be maintained using the Mac & PC format or ISO 9660. And I guess Finder uses one of those settings, but that's just guessing.

    Edit: I guessed right... ;)

    Maybe that format doesn't support folder icons...? Or maybe it's just another crappy thing about Finder burning.

    Use Toast! :)

    'Mac Only' There's a setting on the side bar if I remember correctly . . .
