Answer:
Answer:

Updating to Lion doesn't change the iPhoto version. They are two separate entities.


To see the disc on the Desktop go to the Finder's View Options

Are you trying to create a mini library on disc for use by iPhoto?

Then you should assemble them in an album first. Then select all of them and use the File ➙ Export ➙ File Export menu option.


In the file export pane select the options you want and export to a folder on the Dekstop. Then insert a blank disk in the optical drive and when it appears on the Desktop drag the folder onto the disk's icon. Drag the disk icon to the Trash which turns into a burn icon to burn to disk.


Select your Mac's hard drive, type Command+i to bring up the Info window for it. There you will see how much free space you have on your hard drive. What is it?


Also you can select the folder on the Desktop and do the same to see how bit it is. If it's over 650 MB you'll need a DVD disk.

How are you burning the photos to the disc? Via the Share ➙ Burn menu or buy exporting the photos to a folder on the Desktop and then burning that folder to disc?


The former method creates a mini library on the disk that can only be read and use by a Mac with iPhoto. The latter method saves just the photos to disc which can be used by any computer.


What system and iPhoto version are you using? How much free space do you have on your MacBook Pro?


If you're using the Share ➙ Burn method can you burn a disc from the Finder?


Describe in detail what you're trying so we have a better understanding and can better offer a solution.
