need help with new macbook pro

I just bought a brand new macbook pro today. Its the standard 13" model. I was wondering if its possible to transfer videos/photos from an sd card to a blank cd/dvd disc through the macbook. I know the macbook has a sd card slot along with an optical drive, but im not sure if its possible to transfer the photos and videos. If anyone knows how, i would greatly appreciate the help, thank you.

Edit: i have one more question. Is it necessary to install any antivirus software on my macbook? I know that its hard to get virus's (or at least thats what i've been told) but i just want to be safe.

I got a virus on my macbook and it fried my hard drive while hacking into my mainframe and caused my internet at home to be destroyed. Get an anti virus.

To answer your first question, yes. You can transfer any media you've got from your SD to a CD/DVD.

How?
-insert SD card.
-check desktop for picture of SD card (double click)
--in the new window find the files you want to xfer.
---click/drag them to your desktop
---let these copy
--insert blank CD/DVD
-Select files on your desktop you want to burn to the disk, choose file at the top, then burn.

To answer your second question, yes your mac can get viruses. No, there isn't a virus protection out there that will keep your megahurtz from getting stoled by downloading teh pronz, getting phished due to your poor typing skills, and java/javascript browswer deficiencies.

What does that mean? backup in time machine, and backup often. And be careful with what you download.

Don't open any .dmgs that you don't know what they do and trust the company who made them . That will avoid Trojans .

lol my bad. Ive been using an ipad for so long as a replacement for my old crappy pc that i forgot how to do alot of stuff on computers. Im relearning everything now so hopefully i wont be making more threads like this in the future haha. this macbook is awesome btw, no wonder why everyone loves them. I still think the price (1,200 plus tax) is ridiculous though
