CD Burning support in Panther
Authored by: martinx on Mar 03, '04 05:23:47PM
If you need more features, I would suggest Toast.

I would buy Toast if it had packet writing. I've been "pestering" Roxio on and off for quite a while for their "DirectCD" feature on the Mac OS X platform. I'm really quite stumped as to what's taking so long. There site has really been no help to me in trying to figure out if any of their OS X products support packet writing. Maybe it's not a popular feature, but I would consider it *the* feature, the *only* reason to buy third party burning software.

Of course I have a similar problem in general - software companies that give you no clue what platform they support, because they assume Windows is the only thing out there (or that you should spring for Virtual PC). bleah.

I just wish Apple would include some easy, thorough burn software with the OS. I'd settle for being able to do multiple sessions without disk utility, and to be able to burn without having Finder copy the data first. Burning with Finder may be really simple, but it sure is slow and limited.

The Xcode examples sure have come in handy at work though.
