Burning a DVD using Toast Titanium
Expand all Collapse all
Roxio Toast Titanium is a disk-burning program for Mac OS X, that can burn data CDs and DVDs, video DVDs, MP3
CDs and audio CDs. The software uses a straightforward interface, allowing you to select your format and burn
your disk using a single work window, which negates your need to create playlists, folders or libraries, as some
other burning programs require. To burn a DVD in Toast, just decide what you want to copy and you can complete
the entire process in minutes.

are copying an already-existing DVD (such as a movie disk or software disk) to a blank DVD, click the "Copy" tab. Note that Toast
will only let you copy DVDs not containing copy protection, so you cannot use copyrighted films.

DVD. For video file burning, move your video files to the Toast window in the same manner. If copying a disk, click the "DVD" button
in the lower right corner of the screen (directly above the red circle) and select the "Disc Copy" option from the pop-up menu. Then
insert your original DVD and click the "Record" button. When recording finishes, eject your disk.
