    A (hopefully) simple question for all the 10.3 gurus out there...

    If I want to add something to a cd rw disc that I already have stuff on I have gone to disc utility, erased the disc, then burnt the suff I just erased then added the new stuff. Is there a simpler way of just adding the new stuff to the disc? :confused:

    Oh yeah dont need to do that..infact you can keep on adding data even to cd-r ....yeah u dont even need cd -rw..
    prepare a disk image (.dmg file) of whatevr u wanna burn..insert the cd, from the diskutility, click the arrow for burn options..then check 'leave the disk appendable'...and burn the disk...then next time u wanna add somethn to the cd, do the instead of 'burn' it wd say 'append'...

    P.S..when u click burn second time, ie, when you are appending it, it wd eject ur cd..but the option wd be saying 'append' just push it back in... :)

    My question is, why does Mac OS X make you use a disk image to make appendable CDs? I don't understand why Disc Burner doesn't offer the 'leave disc appendable' option in a Finder burn, thus avoiding use of Disk Utility and being far more intuitive to use. C'mon Apple, I want to see this feature included in a future version of Mac OS X!
