Why?

...because when you drag a folder to a CDR icon, it copies all the data to a hidden disk image in preparation for burning. This takes time and space on the disk. Using burn folders, you don't need to copy any data at all--it burns "in place" where it is, so it's faster and takes no additional disk space.

Much more convienent, particularly when burning 4GB of data onto a DVD-R.

Um...you're either still using Panther or smoking crack. FYI, Tiger no longer creates temporary Disk Images when burning CDs from the Finder.
