Mac ISO burning FAQ: How do I burn an ISO image on Mac OS X?
It seems like lately all I'm doing is burning stuff to a CD or DVD on my Mac OS X system, first backups, and now I'm burning ISO images.
If you've never burned an ISO image to a CD or DVD on a Mac before, it's pretty easy. Here's how I just burned a Fedora ISO image on my MacBook Pro, which is a Mac OS X 10.4.10 system.
First, of course, is to have an ISO image ready to burn on your local disk, or a network share. Once you have that, just follow these steps. (Note that, to date, I've always burned ISO images to a CD. I assume you follow the same process to burn to a DVD, but I don't know that for sure.)
Images you'll see during the ISO burn process are shown next.
Figure 1: Shows the Mac Disk Utility, with my Fedora ISO file selected.
Figure 2: The prompt to insert a disk.
Figure 3: You get one last chance to cancel.
Figure 4: The Mac Disk Utility progress bar as the disk is burned.
All of these ISO images are from the Disk Utility on Mac OS X version 10.4.10.
That's all I had to do to burn an ISO image to CD on Mac OS X. I hope these "Mac ISO burning" steps and images are helpful to anyone else going through this ISO-burning process.
