    Toast 8 seems to work pretty well.

    Mac OS X has built-in CD and DVD burning, but if you want more features and options, take a look at Toast.

    Thanks! I'm kinda new to Mac and have always had problems burning cds with disc utility. Where can I find an easy-to-read step-by-step guide?

    If you are just talking backing up your music CDs, then

    Insert CD, open itunes. Let itunes rip CD, then create a playlist of the recently ripped songs. Go to Library, then sort the 'Date Added' Column so that all of the recently ripped songs are first in the list. Drag them to a playlist, then goto the playlist, and the select

    File>>Burn Playlist to Disc

    Now you have your backup...don't forget to put in a blank CD.

    If you are talking about DAta CDs, then just insert the CD, when it appears on the Desktop, open it, copy the files to a folder on the Desktop.

    Right click on the desktop in the open area, and select 'Create New Burn Folder', Drag the files to this folder. Then use Disc Utility to burn them to a new blank CD.
