    I'm trying to figure out how to burn my files to a DVD disc, using my LaCie SuperWrite Master Speed Plus.

    I tried using Toast 9 that is on the CD, but it's not working.

    I'm sure there is a simple solution .....

    My computer is a MacPro 2.93GHz, running Snow Leopard 10.6.4.

    Help!!

    Thanks. I figured out how to burn the DVDs. Used the old application, Disc Burner, but it doesn't have any option, no menu, absolutely nothing! Just one click, "BURN." That's it. No settings, no preferences, nothing.

    Just burn, and be done. The app wouldn't even allow me to name my disc! And when I finished burning the 2.4GB of data, the DVD was locked, so I couldn't add any more data, even though the DVD is a double-layer (8.5 GB data).

    I also tried using Toast Basic NV, which worked. I was able to name the disc, and burn around 8GB of data. Again, the DVD was locked, so I couldn't add any more data.

    Looks like I'll be burning to the discs only once in a great while (like once or twice a year, since I'll have to burn everything all over again. What a waste!

    I'll be using SDHC cards for updating my files frequently, and also updating files to my two external hard drives.

    Maybe I can find some way to do Multiple Sessions with CDs ....

    I'll mark this as solved, but it will remain open for a few months if you need to post back.

    Google for a program called Simplyburns. It's free and will do everything you need.
