    I've tried inserting a blank DVD and blank CD, and nothing comes up on my desktop, and if I Cmd click a file and choose "Burn", OS X tells me no disc is inserted.

    However if I load up Toast Titanium, I can burn using the same blank discs just fine.

    Any idea what's going on?

    Cheers

    Thanks, but I never did before. Always, when a blank disc was inserted, it showed up on my desktop as "Untitled disc". This is not happening anymore

    Go to System Preferences > CDs & DVDs >> When you insert a blank CD/DVD and set the appropriate action.

    Thanks, but the option there is the same as it's always been for me: "Ignore". But in the past, this hasn't stopped the icon showing on my dekstop, and I've been able to Cmd click a file and burn to disc without creating a burn folder.

    I haven't burnt a CD or DVD in Finder in some years, therefore I don't know the proper procedure.
    But you can still right click on the file(s)/folder(s) you want to burn and select "BURN". I don't know what the CMD click does though, as it does nothing on my Mac, except de-select the current file or add another file to an already existing selection. Do you mean CTRL click by any chance?

    Sorry, I've been meaning right click all along when I say Cmd click
