What do u guys think of the cd/dvd burning application? Im thinking if i should download it. I just dont like using different programs to burn my cds/dvds...

i hate using itunes for burning...id prefer an allinone burning program to burn simple processes...

so should i download burn?

i just dont want the download to cause problems to my comp...i dont like downloading a lot of apps...and i dont want it to freeze on me...


thanks

I've used Burn as an alternative to OSX's built-in tool, and when I don't need to do anything special to the files (ie, needs Toast to do it properly).

Seems to work fine for me - and it's free, so you can't really go wrong!

I've been using it since i first got my mac, it hasn't caused any problems for me. Toast is better, but it's not free, and I'll nearly always go with the free option.

Go for it!

dont like using mp3 mode cuz it doesnt put the files in folders...which i would prefer...easy searching through car stereo...

i actually used mac+pc for a test disc...hopefully it works...

is joliet pc the best option to use?

Presumably, Burn is putting a copy of the MP3s in the PC segment of the Mac+PC disc. Otherwise, your car stereo wouldn't read them. Once again, I don't think you get any benefits out of using this format. You should probably just use Joliet. All the devices will still be able to read it.
