When I switched to Linux, I tried their image burning programs. k3b and Brasero in particular. Brasero didn't work at all, and k3b had faulty verification. I lost a lot of data I thought was "backed up" because it said the disc burned correctly. I have never had these issues on ImgBurn, so I turned to Wine to use it in Linux. I really hadn't thought about changing this behavior after switching to Mac.

I have not yet used Disk Utility. I am wary about other programs after my Linux experience. I think I will try it though.

Thanks for the help.
