Introduction and information about how to use toast.

Burning A DVD with Toast

In Toast, you can burn DVDs for a DVD player, or you can burn data DVDs. Data DVDs can only be read by a computer, but they can contain any kind of files.

To burn a video DVD for a DVD player, follow these steps:

1. Open Toast. Toast is the con on your dock that looks like a purple toaster with media in it.

2. Click on the tab labeled "Video" in the upper left corner of Toast’s main window.

3. Do either of the following:

  • Click the “Add Files” icon in the bottom right corner of the window. Then, select any video files you would like to burn on this DVD.
  • From the Finder, drag any files you would like to burn into the main part of Toast’s window.

4. Click the red button labeled "Burn" in the bottom right corner of Toast's main window. Toast will open the CD/DVD tray and prompt you to insert a blank disc.
