Burning a CD on a Mac Showing Little Arrow Icons

Arrow Icons on a Mac

Are you seeing little arrow icons showing up when trying to burn your CD instead of the actual files? See advice below on how to burn a CD.

When you drag a file/folder to a Burn Folder, an alias is added to the Burn Folder not the actual file you are dragging. Notice the little arrow in the icon of the file/folders you dragged in.


Arrow Icons - Alias on Mac

In Leopard, there is another method to burn things to a disk.

Step 1

Select the folder (any folder) you want to burn.

Step 2

Select File Menu->Burn XXX to Disc.

Step 3

Then follow the instructions in the dialog(s) that appear. This will burn the actual files, instead of just an alias.

Hope that helps!
