Can you burn a CD from the Finder?
To burn a CD or DVD:
- Insert a blank disc into the optical drive.If you see a dialog, choose Open Finder from the pop-up menu. Select “Make this action the default” if you want to open the Finder every time you insert a blank disc.The disc appears on your desktop.
- Double-click the disc to open its window, and then drag the files and folders you want to burn to the window.Aliases to the files are placed in the disc’s window. The original files are not moved or deleted.
- Arrange and rename the files.When the disc is burned, the items on the disc will have the same names and locations that they have in the disc window. After the disc is burned, you cannot change them.
- Choose File > “Burn [disc],” and then follow the instructions.The files that the aliases point to are burned to the disc. In addition, if any folder you added to the disc contains aliases, the original files for those aliases are burned to the disc as well.
No, I can't burn a CD from the Finder. We tried that. iTunes opens as it should when I insert the disc, and it thinks there is one there - but again, , and the only dialog box is the iTunes one telling me to go to File>Burn playlist to disc - and there is no burn option under File. And the disc isn't on the desktop, so I can't double-click on the disc - it's not there. Clicking on Finder File gets me "burn desktop to disc", and clicking (to see what would happen) that just froze Finder, which is a first for me.
