Writing CD from ISO in MacOS X

7 Nov

I’m using MacOS X as my primary UI to write these posts and download my ISO.

I’ve never downloaded ISO and written them to CD before.  I’ve always worked on a Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7 environment and had a nifty tool called Active ISO Burner to write CD-ROM media from an ISO image.

Quick as a flash using Google, I’ve found a site with the instructions to write ISO to CD/DVD on MacOS X.

Here’s a summary of the instructions:

  1. Insert a blank disc.
  2. Start Disk Utility.
  3. From the File menu, choose Open Disk Image and select the ISO to be burned.
  4. In the list of volumes, you will now see an item representing the ISO file. Select it.
  5. Click the Burn button and follow the instructions.

Seems like Disk Utility needs to be used to a lot of things with disk, including erasing CD-RW and DVD-RW.  Oh well…

… a couple of minutes later … and the CD is burned … as expected … yay :)…
