    What are some good choices on software for burning or is it best to do in finder?

    The free "Burn" is what I recommend. (Yes, that's the name of the app.)

    It depends on what you want to do. If it is really just simple, straightforward burning, then Finder will do.

    I use a simple, free app named "Simply Burns".

    Might be worth a try, as well.

    Taiyo Yuden is regarded by many to be the very best in the industry.
    Though on June 11, 2015, Taiyo Yuden announced that they would withdraw from the recording media business, including CDs, DVDs, BDs, at the end of 2015, you can still find some of their products.
    BD-R.
    DVD.

    I have had very good luck with Verbatim media.

    Be aware that their are two separate kinds of BluRay media.
    I believe there is one kind (cheaper) that uses dye-based burning.
    There's another (non-dye-based) that offers more longevity, but costs a little more...

    Burned over five-hundred copies of my DVD Collection using the excellent "MAC DVD Ripper Pro! Trial use is great as they let you burn five(5) DVDs at no cost.

    Burn is good and free but I haven't tried it with a BD disc yet, but I know that Toast Titanium supports it, and my external drive is recognised my my 2011 MBP and mounts them in the Finder itself with no issue
