Can you burn fine from other disk burning software or an external drive?

I dont own a external drive

tried diskutiity and it worked:) what burningf software should i get

by

it needs to leave cdrs burnable if possible

by

What burning software have you been using? And CD-Rs can only be burned to once, it's a physical thing, so no way around that, you need to use CD-RWs to burn multiple times.

If you burn cds/dvds and they fail, try a different brand of CDS/DVDS

I have found that certain brands just don't work as well on my mac-book pro

I use random brands so just narrow it out to the good brands?

Memoex DVD_R works on my MacBook Pro.

I believe we already found the problem, it's not the brands, just the software you were using.

I've used Toast for years. Version 10 is the latest. It's pretty much the standard. Here's where to get it:

You cab burn to a single CD several times, until you fill the disk, by using the"sessions" option.

How much is it

by

Somewhere around $100 I last heard.

Your Price: $79.99 (after $20 mail-in rebate)from Toast

Limewire

No point in buying it though if you don't use any of their extra features, which include a lot of "pro" features, which the average user won't need.
