Disk Utility 12.x: Burn a disk image to a CD or DVD
You can use Disk Utility to burn a disk image on a recordable CD or DVD disc. You might do this to make a backup copy of your files, which you can use to restore the files to a disk. You can also use CDs and DVDs to move files from one computer to another or to send them to other people.
To burn a disc, you need an optical drive in your computer or connected directly to your computer. You can’t burn a disc using a remote optical drive.
- Open Disk Utility, in the Utilities folder in Launchpad.
- Select the disk image if it appears in the list at the left, and then click Burn in the toolbar.
Otherwise, click Burn in the toolbar, and then select a disk image in the dialog that appears.
- Insert a recordable CD or DVD disc into the optical drive, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
