    in the Finder, go to the File Menu and select new Burn Folder.
    Place your project files in that folder.
    Insert a blank CD and open the Burn folder and hit the burn button in the top right of the window.

    That help?

    for the movie I would suggest using iDVD, and burn it to a DVD. for any other files use the finder to create a burn folder and put them in there and burn it.

    first, a comment; try looking for solutions yourself. There was a booklet which came with your iMac, and there must be a part about how to burn a CD. There are pages on the Apple site as well.

    Now, the helpful stuff.
    1. Put a blank CD into the drive. It should ask you what you want to do with it. Make sure it says Open With Finder, and click OK.

    2. It should come up as an icon on your desktop as Untitled CD. To rename it, single-click it so it is highlighted, and press Enter or Return. You can now change the name of it. For now, lets make it Project CD. When you have finished typing, press Enter or Return again to stop editing the name of it.

    3. To add a file to it, just drag the file onto the disk icon. For the example, I put a file called Picture 1.jpg

    4. When you double-click the CD icon, the window should look something like this.

    5. When you are ready to burn the CD, press the Burn button in the top right of that window. It will come up with the window below. If everything is good, click Burn to burn the CD.

    6. It should open up this window. When it finishes verifying, the burn is complete.

    A conventional blank CD has a maximum capacity of 650 Mb

    You need to divide your data files into groups of 650 Mb or less to fit on a CD and then burn each group separately to a different CD.

    Going to the Apple.com/support/ site and Searching for Burn a CD also gets you instructions


    Stop panicking and think -- this is not too complex to master.
