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.

You really should try using Time Machine through a DVD. The program
does a verification of data and you can restore your system to a
particular point in time, if needed. I use an external hard drive for
this purpose. Until my employer basically made it illegal to have the
drive on premises, it used to be there.
