iMac OSX 10.8.5

I am often producing demo CDs for a musician.

The steps are

  1. insert blank
  2. scroll to playlist
  3. right click and choose burn
  4. click ok
  5. wait for jingle - this scrolls to the playable CD
  6. click eject


I would like to

  1. scroll to playlist ONCE
  2. right click and choose burn
  3. get prompted for disks until I am done and click cancel

Is there a setting I did not find? I am not interested in 3rd party software - just wondering if there is a setting I overlooked or perhaps some way of automating this.

You should consider buying Toast from Roxio there's a light version on the AppStore that still allows you to choose the numbers of copies...

  • Thanks, but I was not planning to purchase anything I was just wondering if there was something I had overlooked.

  • I don't think so what you may do is in the Keyboard System Preferences a shortcut to access the menu item more easily... E.g. click the playlist then each CD hit the keystroke(s) you have created...

  • The issue is that the playlist is deselected each time. I think I'm SOL
