When I first got my Mac, Burn was one of the first applications I installed. I don't need lots of fuss and bloated burning applications when I want to burn a disc - I just want something that's going to do the job quickly.

If you're the same, then you'll love Burn. Burn is a super lightweight and simple application to burn audio, video and data disks and disk images and copies. Burn handles all major formats including HPS+, UDF, Joliet, DVD Video, VCD, SVCD, Divx, Cue/Bin and Toc. Burn handles everything from burning Audio CDs and MP3 disks to video disks such as VCD, SVCD, DVD and DivX disks.

Burn also allows you to burn three kinds of images: normal disk images, cue/bin images and TOC images. In addition, you can perform a simple copy of a data disk. Be careful when burning DivX disks though that you've selected the option "Create a fully compatible DVD Disk" and obviously select the Video tab. I failed to do this and couldn't understand why my DivX films would not play back on my DVD player.

Simple, no fuss and brilliant at what it does, Burn should come as standard with Mac OS.

    "Movies don't play in dvd players."

    I've burned many movies using this program, sadly none of them played in any dvd players. Waste of time. More.
