    Right folks

    Got a combo drive in my month old iBook 12", with Tiger. I tried copying an audio CD using disk utility, by creating the DMG file, and using Burn Image (or somehting like that). The result was a CD that had what looked like AIFF files on a Mac format disk. Certainly wasn't audio format. Individual files could be played in iTunes, but not in a CD player.

    Is this the right way? A couple of how-to docs and Mac Help suggested this method. Surely I don't need to buy Toast or resort to the command line? Any nice free tools that do this, if OS X can't? My forum search found nothing.

    Otherwise I'll be back to Nero on XP! :eek:

    TIA

    Why not just import the songs into iTunes and burn from there?

    If the songs are in iTunes, make a playlist that includes those songs, select the playlist, and click on the burn icon

    Thanks for the Tip. iTunes will do this, good feature.

    But I guess then the Disk utility can't copy audio? And the iTunes method won't duplicate extra CD features such as CD-Text, and hybrid cd's with videos.

    Sounds like I'll have to stick to XP+Nero when I'm at home, and iTunes when away.
