Method 2: Transfer files using a blank CD or DVD
Transferring files from Mac to PC using a blank disc requires a couple of simple steps. In order to use this method of file transfer, your Mac must have a CD/DVD burner.
On your Mac, create a new folder on the desktop. Drag any files that you want to transfer to your PC into this folder. After you are finished adding all of your files, insert a blank CD or DVD into your Mac's optical drive.
Double click the folder to open it. Click the gear icon located within folder view to activate the drop down menu. Select the option: Burn "Your folder name here" to disc.
**If you are using OS X TIger, create a new burn folder, add your files, and click the Burn button located in the upper right hand corner of the window**
Wait for your CD or DVD to burn completely. After it's done, eject it from your Mac computer.
Insert the CD or DVD into your PC's CD/DVD drive. If Windows does not automatically recognize the disc, you will need to manually find it. Navigate the path Start > Computer. Double click on your computer's CD/DVD drive to open up files on the CD/DVD. Copy these files to your PC.
Hint: Use a CD for transferring light files such as text documents, photos, etc... Use a DVD for transferring large files such as Videos, Movies, etc...
