macOS High Sierra

Burn CDs and DVDs

If your Mac has a built-in optical drive, or if you connect an external DVD drive (for example, an Apple USB SuperDrive), you can burn files to CDs and DVDs to share your files with friends, move files between computers, or create backup files. Discs you burn on your Mac can also be used on Windows and other types of computers.

Note: To create CDs and DVDs with audio and video from your iTunes library, use iTunes. For more information, see
