If in fact your MacBook has a Super Drive, you should be able to burn data cd-r and dvd-r on your MB out of the gate, using the Finder application; it’s a drag-and-drop procedure, if you need instructions, let me know and I’ll PM them to you.


Audio CDs-use iTunes

Video DVDs-use iDVD (if you have iLife ‘06 or newer)

The really low end MacBook can only burn CDs. That is the one that costs $1,099.00

I have found Burn to be a great and easy to use app for burning disks under OS X.

And some blank CDs and DVDs just don’t work very well. I would try a different brand and see how that goes. This is a surprisingly common problem.

edit :: And Burn is free and open source.

If I am understanding the question You should be able to control click on the desktop and create a burn folder.

You can check your burner by going to the apple in the upper left>about this mac>more info

disk utility can take control of your burning needs if you get confused by finder.

edit: disk utility ships with mac os x

Will burn burn Video_TS files?
