Archived - Burning a disk image file on a CD or DVD in Mac OS X
It's really easy to burn a disk image file using Disk Utility in Mac OS X 10.3 or later (or Disk Copy in Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier).
Disk Utility, Mac OS X 10.0, Mac OS X 10.1, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.3, Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.5
Disk Utility (Mac OS X 10.3 or later)
- Open Disk Utility, in the Utilities folder (/Applications/Utilities).
- If the disk image you want to use doesn't appear in the list, drag its icon to the Disk Utility window.
- Select the disk image and click Burn.
- Insert a blank CD or DVD into your computer's optical drive and follow the onscreen prompts.
Disk Copy (Mac OS X 10.0 through 10.2.8)
- Open Disk Copy in the Utilities folder (/Applications/Utilities).
- From the File menu, choose Burn Image. Don't open the disk image file before choosing this command.
- A navigation dialog appears. Locate and select the disk image file.
- Click Burn.
- When prompted, insert a blank disc into the optical media drive.
- Click Burn.
Depending on your computer's settings, the drive will eject the disc, or it will appear on the desktop when the burn is successfully completed.
Note: When burning a disc from a disk image, the burned disc will have the same format as the disk image. If you need a disc that will work on different computers, burn the disc in the Finder.
