Burn is a very simple, but very advanced CD and DVD burning suite. It is an open-source project that has been available for years. It has become one of the most used burning applications for the Mac mainly because it is an amazingly simple app to use. The application consists of a single, small, square window which contains all the program features.

Burn can be used to burn data, audio and audio discs or to copy CDs and DVDs. Each burning category has its own tab, which you can easily access from the main window. If you want to burn a data disc, simply click on the "+" sign and add files or folders, or you can drag and drop files from a Finder window.

Data burning is relatively easy with this tool. After adding the files that you want to burn to the compilation, you get to select the type of file system to use, so that your burned discs are compatible with different operating systems.

Audio burning is just as easy. You can create Audio CDs or MP3 compilations on both CDs and DVDs. There is a built-in player for testing your compilation before you burn.

Video burning is also easy, but not all formats are supported. If you are trying to create a DVD disc from a file that is not compressed using MPEG, you are going to have to convert it. Thankfully, there is even a file converter built-in with this application; perhaps not the most powerful one, but it can do the job.

Burn can do it all. And I don't think I have seen an easier-to-use application for burning on any platform. For everyday burning, it can't be beaten.

This Burn for Mac is simply loaded with technical bugs as I have tried dozens of times to get this App to burn a DVD/CD but constantly got error messages and App crashes.
The technical support is also very poor and were unable to resolve my issues with this App.
Burn for Mac is simply NOT worth all the problems it will give you.
