Pretty much as per title really.
I have a brand new macbook pro with internal drive and internal sd card slot.
Ive been trying all morning.
I can get my pics and clips into iPhoto no problem but how do i burn to disc?
Id expect it to be under the 'share' tab but its not.
Please help!

What do you want to do with the DVD? Play it on a DVD player? Share the files with someone else?

Does your brand new Macbook Pro actually have an optical drive (ie. A drive to read/write CD/DVD)? If not, and I suspect that this is the case, you will need to buy an external drive (you can get a decent one for around £20). As CH_Peter says, it then depends on what you want to do, but first, select and export the files from iPhoto, making sure that the quality is "original". If you simply want to write the files to a disc, then use the freeware app "Burn", making sure that you select the right format so that it can be read by whatever device you will be using to read the files. I believe that Burn will also allow you to make a DVD that can be read by a DVD player but I have never used it for this, preferring a paid-for app such as Roxio Popcorn.
