How do you burn CDs?
I'm trying to do that, but when I use the "burn" command, I'm given a choice between "hybrid", "HFS" and a couple of other unknown things. I have no idea what those commands mean. I just want to be sure that I will be able to read the CD on a PC. What choice should I use?

NB: Path Finder is a great program, but it would REALLY help if there was a user's manual!

    Take a look here for information about CD filesystems. For PC compatibility go with Joliet or Hybrid.

    I suggest you invoke the Burn command without any selection on the file browser (press Esc) so it opens in a window instead of a drop-down sheet. When using the window, you can drag files/folders into it and remove them with the Delete key.

    Let us know if you need more help. Cheers.
