How To Burn A Data CD Or DVD On A Mac: Losing documents and files can be a horrible nightmare. Fortunately, it is an entirely avoidable one. Macs make burning files onto DVD a simple process. VideoJug will show you how to burn a data CD or DVD on a Mac.

Step 1: You Will Need

  • 1 Blank CD-R or DVD-R
  • Macintosh Computer
  • Blank DVD or CD-R

Step 2: Load It Up

Insert a blank DVD-R or CD- R. A typical DVD holds 4 and one half gigabytes of information, while a typical CD-R holds 700 MB of information.

Step 3: Create a Folder

Right click or hold down control and click on any empty space on your desktop. Select "New Burn Folder" from the drop down menu

Step 4: Go Get 'Em

Locate the files you wish to copy and drag them into your burn folder…Don't worry about misplacing them...the computer doesn't actually move them, it just creates an "alias" which points the burn folder to the file you wish to burn.

Step 5: Burn it

Open up your burn folder and click the "Burn" button.

There you have it. In just a few minutes you'll have the data backed up, files to share, or a little less virtual clutter on your hard drive.
