Today Apple’s Pro Tips web page carries a hint that was news to me. It tells you how to use Mac OS X’s built-in Disk Utility to burn multiple sessions on a single CD or DVD.
It describes how to create a burn folder, open Disk Utility, select “Image from folder” from the New option in the File menu, then highlight the new image, select burn and then — here’s the magic part — make sure that the expanded options (blue arrow button in top right) are showing in the next dialog.
Check the “Leave disc appendable” option:
Then you will be able to append further burn sessions to the same disk by following this process at each burn.
A bit of a pain in the butt perhaps, but it saves discs, saves money and saves the environment.
