    I am new to Mac-working on my 2nd mini in just over 1 year.

    I LOVE IT-EVERYTHING about it-even though I have a Bootcamp WIN XP partition installed, I RARELY use it.

    However, one thing I do use it for is Nero-so far I have found NOTHING that even comes close for OS-X.

    I downloaded BURN yesterday to Copy my music CDs (I always put copies in the car, that way if someone feels like they need them more than I do (steals them) I still have the originals). Anyway I read good things about BURN but it does not even come close to Nero-The whole process of having to first "burn" a CD image, and then "burn" the image to a blank is crazy. I realize that NERO is doing exactly that, it is just so seamless I don't have to mess around-put the original in-wait 5-8 minutes, insert a blank and wait an other 5-8 minutes-then DONE. I don't have to "move the image ICON" to the burn box or anything-Literally 3 clicks to copy a CD.

    Nothing I have tried for OS-X is even close to this easy to use. Any suggestions?

    Any forgive me if asked-I was hoping for some current opinion here.

    I second HLdan's recommendation of Toast, it has excellent features and is simple to use. :)

    Toast is way nicer than the insane bloat-ware that is Nero.

    Is that like vegemite?

    Toast9 is what you want. I also use NTI Dragon Burn for certain tasks which it handles better than Toast (i.e. burning ISO images).

    It better be good for $99.99! Oh, I forgot, there's a $20.00 rebate for upgrades. (That is if you ever receive the 20 bucks from Roxio.) :mad:

    Try "SimplyBurns". It may not be as sophisticated as Toast but for the rest of us who just want to burn CDs and DVDs it's fine. Besides, it's FREE. :D

    Toast isn't really that bad but it's price and Roxio's horrible support will make me never buy another copy.
