    I know you probably have a bunch of these programs, but bare with me. My DVD Burner was originally designed for Windows so it does not come with DVD Burning software for the Mac. What are so good free/low-cost Mac DVD/CD burning software? Thanks!

    OS X might support it out of the box. If not, try Patchburn. It will probably add support for your burner under OS X.

    For paid utilities, Toast Titanium is the best Mac burning software.

    I believe this subject has come up here quite frequently. Maybe check the search feature to see what others have already commented.

    If you use MacOS X 10.4 "Tiger" it has CD/DVD burning built-in (Burn Folders). The iLife suite (US$80 for the '05 version, $50 for the '04 if you can still find it) includes iDVD which will burn video DVDs. Roxio Toast 6 Titanium is one of the best all-around (data, audio and video) CD and DVD burning programs for MacOS X though. You can often find it on sale for $70 (I think it's normally $100) if you shop around (Amazon,, etc).

    Just use the finder that comes with OS X. Put a cd/dvd in, drag the files onto the cd, drag it to the trash which will turn into a different icon which looks like a nucular button or something and your done.

    Another vote for Toast. Absolutely fantastic piece of software. Well worth the price (especially when bundled with an external DVD-burner...) :)

    A third vote for Toast. I've always been a bit tight when it comes to buying software (I usually like to try and find a free app that does what I want) but in the case of Toast, the app is definitely good value for the money. (I actually also purchased Jam with it as well, and that has been a great app as well.)

    It all depends what you want to do with it though - if you're just burning basic discs, then OS X's built in burn utility is probably adequate. If you're wanting to do VCDs, SVCDs, disc copies, image files, bin/cue, hybrids, UDF and all that wonderful stuff, Toast is the app you want! :cool:

    Well, to be honest, I would recommend 3 applications:

    1)Finder in OS X (unless you have OS X 10.2 which doesn't support disk formats that will work on PC's)
    2)Disk utility (really, you can do amazing things with this...)

    If you just want to burn data, you will need no more than the built-in Finder's burning capabilities

    If you want to be able to burn additional types of disks, you may be willing to try disk utility. Disk utility is a fine app and many people ignore the fact that this is the only app that can make a .dmg file that contains BOTH disk images from a hybrid PC-Mac disk.

    If you want it all, then you will use Toast. It supports everything that Finder and Disk utility has, plus burning VideoCD's, making your own Video DVD's, burning multitrack CD-ROM XA's, enhanced music CD's, burning cd's with ISO-9660 format, and more.

    ROXIO TOAST FTW! It can be your DVD burning software if you are using MAC. MACburn is also available if you have the budget. ;)

    Best CD/DVD Burning Software

    Does the Toast Titanium require a Blu-ray Reader/Burner to rip Blu-ray movies?

    Another vote for Roxio Toast Titanium.

    LadyX, yes you will require a drive capable of burning Blu-ray disc.
