I like a Mac utility that does something cool, regardless of the name.
“BurnItAgainSam lets you add files to your CDR multiple times easily. Instead of showing a CDR icon for each session, the CDR burnt using BurnItAgainSam shows all the files ever burnt together, as if you had burnt them at once.
The format of the CDR is also Windows™ compatible. Plus: BurnItAgainSam lets you change the name of your CDR at each burn.”
That’s about it. You were looking for more? Isn’t that enough? Can’t you do this on Mac OS X already? Yes. No. No. Yes but not really.
BurnItAgainSam takes something that used to be a pain and makes it easy again.
For example, if you have a 680 megabyte CD and burn a 20 megabyte file on it, you can use that same CD and burn still another 20 meg file on it. And another. And another.
Except, when you mount the CD on the desktop, you get multiple “mounts.” Try that with 10 files and you’ll see the problem. That’s 10 mounts on the desktop. And that assumes you used a CD burning application that doesn’t “close” the CD when you burn it. Otherwise, you’ve really wasted space.
BurnItAgainSam eliminates all those problems and lets you use nearly all the 680 or so megabytes on a CD or CD-RW.
The developer of BurnItAgainSam is ToolsOnTen. Here’s what they say:
Is that nifty? Window™ compatible, too. Saves resource forks (if you don’t know what that means, don’t worry… Martha Stewart called from Camp Cupcake and says, “it’s a good thing”).
Need more techno-mumble-jumbo? “BurnItAgainSam is a tool that burns folders or files as a ISO 9660 joliet rock ridge multisession CDR, that links to previous sessions if they are available.”
See? We can cop a phrase as well as anyone.
Think of BurnItAgainSam as that nifty neato Mac utility that you sorta figured was already in your Mac (because this is the way is should be done anyway) but wasn’t. Isn’t. But with BurnItAgainSam is now.
The developer charges a measly $15 which you’ll save on CD’s in just a few days (depends on how many CDs you burn, what you use, how you use them, or, in other words—your mileage may vary).
