Toast: Burn DVD

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:

  • Open Toast. Toast is the icon on your dock that looks like a toaster with a CD in it.
  • Click on the third tab on the upper left corner of Toast’s main window. This tab has an icon of a movie slate.
  • Click on DVD-Video, just below the tab in the last step.
  • Do either of the following:

(1) Click “Add” on the bottom of the window. Then, select any video files you would like to burn on this DVD.

(2) From the Finder, drag any files you would like to burn into the main part of Toast’s window where it says “Drag video files or pictures into this area.”

  • Click the big red button in the bottom right corner of Toast’s main window. Toast will open the CD/DVD tray and prompt you to put a blank disc in.
