    you can use the finder. insert the blank cd and in the window that pops up choose open finder. then just drag the music from itunes or your music folder and it will create aliases (dont worry it wont burn the aliases) and then click burn in the toolbar. or you can also use toast or disco which seem to be the popular ones.

    I use Burn

    http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/

    Burn is free. It is great for burning data CDs as well as music CDs, just drag mp3 files into it and off you go. I use all the time.

    Hope this helps!

    I second Burn. Don't waste your money on Toast, it is way overpriced and seriously lacking compared to its Windows counterparts.

    Thanks, Burn looks like what I am looking for. I love open source software. Toast is made my Roxio right? I hate their software.
