How to burn a DVD on a Mac with Finder
Follow the steps below to learn how to burn a DVD using Finder:
Step 1. Open the DVD burner for a Mac
Before you start using the recorder app, you'll need to make a "burn folder," which is basically a folder of all the files that you want to burn. This can include a wide range of file types, like VIDEO_TS, MP4, MKV, or MOV QuickTime movie files or JPG photos and pictures.
To create the folder, click on the desktop or open a window where you want to store your folder. Then press File, followed by New Burn Folder, and enter a name for your new folder.
Step 2. Add your files
Next, drag the files and downloaded items that you want to add to your folder into the folder from other folders and areas of your device. You should notice that each file you add will appear as an alias in the burn folder, with the original items remaining in their original places in the Finder.
Step 3. Burn your DVD
When you're ready to burn, open your burn folder and click the Burn button.
Enter a blank playable DVD disc into your device's drive. The autoplay burning process will then begin and the files from the burn folder will be burned onto the disc.
