    What is your favorite burning software. I've tried Finder, Burn, Liquid CD, Disco, and Toast. Right now I am using Toast 10 Titanium. Also, what type of file do you burn most? Movies, ISO's ect...

    Liquid CD. Are you just asking to ask or is there an actual issue?

    I am wondering so I can get a better opinion of the programs and make an informed decision about the product.

    I use Adaptec Jam 6, which is no longer available.

    Key to disc burning software, for hard core audiophyles, is to know if the software is burning discs without any cuts or sector boundary issues at the end of tracks (DAO type stuff).

    Jam 6 has been very good to me in creating custom CD's and being able to do fades, etc. on the fly while burning.

    Haevn't tried Toast 10 but may, and I might look into Burn as well.

    Anyone have opinion on really good audio extraction software for Mac that is similar to Exact Audio Copy (EAC) in the Windows domain?

    The finder system is really easy but the two main free burning programs for the mac are Burn and LiquidCD IMO Burn is the better option. There is also SimplyBurns but is less featured the the other two.

    I just use Disk Utility. It isn't pretty, but it's simple, well laid out. It gets the job done.

    BTW, recently I've been burning Linux distros to test.

    On a side note, do you think we call writing to optical media "burning" because in the early days the finished disc would be really hot?

    I think its cause we burn the discs with lasers. Also I had used Disk Utility to burn Ubuntu and Windows 7 and it works, but I like the fact that I can have all my burning needs in one application.
