[muglo] Re: CD Burning Sessions

Thanks very much for this helpful response, Leith
The info re the Roxio Discussion board will prove useful IF I decide to 
buy Toast. What confuses me is our need to have to take all these extra 
steps, after we have already purchased hardware etc which we thought 
was capable of doing something - and which then turns out to be not so 
- unless you have a techie diploma or mentality!

As Mary replied :

> but it can be done.

And the OSX Help menus seemed geared to those who are already Mac 
afficianados - or frustratingly refuse to respond with info on the 
actual problem you have !

The proliferation of comments on these discussion boards about 
producing useless 'coasters' confirms that there are a lot of us so 
called Dummies out there .The Dummy titles on so many books suggest 
that the User is lacking - when the lack is often that of the SW or HW 
supplier, or their programmers, who have limited understanding of User 
Interface Design - and simple cognitive psychology.

Dummies of the World Unite !! -  You have nothing to lose - but your 
time and money !! ??  :-)
