    You basically can use the system to burn files, you can use iTunes to burn music, and iDVD to burn your personal movie files. Beyond that, you will need to get Toast I guess

    For a data disk...

    Right-click on your desktop, and select New Burn Folder.

    Add the files to it.

    Open the folder.

    Click "Burn".

    Insert a disk when prompted.

    Which macbook did you get? If you got the lowest version, it will not have superdrive, so you will not be able to burn dvd's.

    Otherwise you will be fine.

    Using the burn folder as stated above has been all I ever needed for data burning. iTunes does the music, iMovie does the other.

    Just right click, choose new burn folder and drop your contents in.. BAM done.

    I would reccomend the Unarchiver instead of Stuffit because its nice and light. Another good app for unraring files is unrarx.
