abyss - besides being the only one in Canada that have played all the TZ games, are you also the only one who don't know about Google?

Short version:
You can create a 'burn folder' on a Mac via 'FINDER' , you simply compile the desired CD/DVD in a ready to burn folder. A nice feature, really.
abyss wrote:... and does it freeze up and crash often ....
Nope, rarely, extremely rarely , to be honnest: so rarely you could say NEVER , but as it seems to freeze up on you, so I can't say NEVER.
abyss wrote:...(1) and why is it so slow. (2)It is a mac osx
The (2) will be the answer to the (1) I guess, probably installed on too low sysspecs , or somehow you (or other users) managed to screw the Mac up.

[EDIT]
Abyss is probably banned from Google, Minimax.

It won't bite you. (maybe).

Perhaps your Macs at school are too slow to handle burning.

Before OS X 10.4, burning required the OS to ready all available files before burning. OS X 10.4 simply uses shortcuts which makes burning a whole lot faster. The only time I've experienced problems was with DVDs, but these DVDs didn't work in other DVD recorders, so I didn't feel so bad.

Trust me, I've had series of Macs (several G3 iBooks, a couple G4 iBooks, and my current G5 iMac), and I've never, ever had problems with burning. Hell, evening burning with the eight year old G3 iMacs at my work still function properly. Just really slowly.

Why do the macs crash a lot and why are the slow. They are osx macs and all of the macs are slow and crash a lot and are unstable. Windows is more stable than mac. I tried to use linux and i kept crashing it. The only computers i have had luck on are windows computers.

What Macs are you talking about here? School or home?
If they are at school, not much you can do about it, isn't it? You will be too restricted on those to do anything about it.

If you have a Mac at home, that's another story, there are several things you could do to improve them.

Maybe you could tell us ?

As they are school compies, nothing you can do to get them running better, you will have no access to the system settings. You work on them with a restricted account I presume ?

Are you allowed to burn CDs at school ? Amazing, no school around here allows that.

They turned off the cdrom feature. So i cannot open the cdrom drive. Even the macs the teachers have are very slow and crash a lot and are unstable and many of the teachers bring their own laptops to check off which students are their and to mark.

Heh... too bad you got macs at school... if they were PCs with Win XP SP2 installed... it would be easy to hack them! :devil:
