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.
In Leopard, there is another method to burn things to a disk.
Select the folder (any folder) you want to burn.
Select File Menu->Burn XXX to Disc.
Then follow the instructions in the dialog(s) that appear. This will burn the actual files, instead of just an alias.
Hope that helps!
