    I am having some trouble burning cds lately!
    If I try with itunes, it burns the whole cd, and then it stays in "finishing" mode for hours and hours and never actually finishes the cd (leaving the cd totally useless). I am forced to just turn the burner off.
    I also have an old version of Toast, but it is not recognizing the burner... :confused:
    Please help!

    Thank you!

    It sounds to me like you have an external CD burner that isn't fully supported by iTunes. Does your Mac have a (working) internal CD burner? If it does, try using that - if it works, you know the problem lies with the external burner you're using. I've heard of some software called Patchburn which might be of some use to you.

    No, I don't have an internal CD burner... but my external one used to work with itunes and toast, so I don't know what has happened! :(
