As long as none are selected, clicking the burn button causes the 'Open File' pane to come down, you can then select the image you want and it will burn.
One step, exactly what you wanted in the first place. While I agree with you that figuring it how to burn an image the first is tough it's even easier than that. Say you downloaded an ISO off the web. I don't remember if you want the disc mounted or not, if no one replies to this I will tell you when I get back to my happy Mac.
For me it becomes the burn button and then burns said ISO. When using burn folders the burn button becomes active in finder as well. OS X does provide other ways to do some of those tasks. They are not all obvious though. Thanks and keep up the good tips. Yeah this command line method works. But I always forget command line commands and sometimes you have to tell casual users how to do things. It is a bit counterintuitive how to burn an ISO to a disk. I still can't quite believe it's not: 1. Right-click on. I don't know why Apple doesn't make it work like that.
You can pretty much do that. I'm sorry but I do believe there is a much simpler method for doing this. Insert a blank disc. Click "Burn". If you already have a blank disc in there, it should still work from step 2. Don't know why that option is greyed out for the poster of this hint. Or, if your. As for.
Yeah, Toast, or maybe DiscBlaze? Hope this helps! If you ever have to burn an image created with Toast on Windows, just change the file extension from.
You, sir, are a lifesaver! Anyway, wasn't obvious to me. Found it helpful and signed up to Hints. Great forum! I switched to Mac about three years ago now. Obviously it was a different version of OSX, therefore the disk utility was different from what it is now. I also struggled with being able to burn iso disc images with disk utility. I was unable to locate any help at that time and after many hours attempting on my own, I gave up and bought Toast.

It is a great program and works great. But it is expensive and the new version of disk utility works just fine for burning image files and its free! One of the many things I love about OSX is the drag and drop ability. So, with that said you can also opt to keep the disk utility icon in your dock. Then just drag your iso file onto the disk utility icon, it will launch utility and there on the left will be your iso, select it, and click burn, throw your disc in and hit enter.

After dragging it into Applications, just double-click the. I know this isn't quite what this hint is about, but I landed here via google and thought others might too. Please clarify one thing that I didn't quite get. What I don't quite get from your instruction is: Do I name the folder of the files as. ISO before I click to burn it? If this is wrong, how do I end up getting a. ISO to be selected to burn? Thanks for any help. When I follow your instructions it appears the CD is not bootable in a PC -- is there a ''bootable'' flag somewhere they I have to enable?? It's pretty useful anyway to convert ISO's etc.
I followed a link from another forum somewhere so thanks to whoever that was! Remember, until the Mighty Mouse, standard Mac mice only had one button. The "right click" convention is very new to olde-tyme mac users and I would wager, Mac developers as well. The olde-type mac convention is the good ol' "click-and-drag". Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but can you not simply download the iso, pop in your blank CDR, drag the iso image to the CDR icon, and click "burn"?
Don't get me wrong here, I'm not trying to mock the "switchers" out there who assume it's more complicated than that because the OS they're used to Windows makes it more complicated.
After all, the whole reason I found this thread is because I too assumed it would be more complicated I switched from Mac to PC a few years back due to work requirements, and am only now switching back. I'm having to "re-learn" some of the intuitive functions of the Mac.
In fact, I haven't tested the "click-and-drag" approach yet because I followed the disk utility method in the first post of this thread. Still, I'd be very surprised if the "click-and-drag" method doesn't get the job done. After all, it's the way Macs have worked since There's no real such thing as a "bootable cd" in Mac terms. If your CD or floppy has a full version of the OS on it, it'll boot. To boot from CD, you have to hold down the "C" key on your keyboard at startup.
That's been the convention since at least OS 7. I have to say, it feels really nice to be explaining the quirks of my OS to them for a change, rather than having to ask them how to perform the same tasks in Windows. But the cd that was burned using Disk Utility works and a windows boot from it! Now I can remove all Microsoft from my house and make it unix! I have an. I'm using disk utility as mentioned above however after the disk finishes burning and is inserted into the other other computer all that comes up is an ejectable image containing sub-folders housing a bunch of.
I'm assuming that the burner is writing all the files as data?

Any help would be appreciated. Very helpful info on using disk utilities to burn the. ISO - and this went swimmingly until the end of the burn when the dialogue box says 'closing session'. The disk util program has now hung at this point for some hours This also happened earlier today and again after some hours I quit from the burn program, but then found I couldn't eject the DVD I had in the drive. Eventually I had to reboot, and the DVD could be ejected during start-up but could not be read when I tried reading it. Anyone got some idea what might be going wrong, and what I can do to sort this out?
I'm running OSX Thanks in advance And they are pretty much worth less than the DVD I wasted on them. Not the OS's on them but the fact that if you don't burn the DVD correctly all you get is the same disk image that you had on your hard drive but now it's burned into a DVD or CD and totally useless other than for pulling the. I was going to use these disks for ninja stars until I read your post.
I don't know why all these links on Google are so run around the answer? Anyway thanks. Writing to NTFS has plagued linux users for some time now as the file system is almost entirely proprietary. There are a few programs for a linux that can write to NTFS using the Windows dll driver, but this would not work on Mac unless it could be recompiled for ppc or support could be added for Intel Macs with some kind of Wine support installed. I would say that Mac doesn't have much of a choice until MS decides to license their filesystem for other OS's to use, and knowing MS's giving nature with their proprietary code The Mac will do the job without additional software.
Currently windows and OS X don't share write capability on any sort of "professional" disk format. If you use FAT32 you will quickly run into the max file size limit especially if you do video work. I've never understood why OS X "prechecks" file transfers for things like available space, but doesn't check the file names.

I suspect this is merely due to it being harder to do. To check for available disk space is quite easy. To do preflight checks on filenames would require knowledge of what is acceptable for a filename on the destination system. Sure, this could be built into the copying software but it would require substantial effort.

A simple regular expression is all you need. It's the sort of thing a first-semester programming student can handle. Please supply this "simple regular expression" for all likely file system candidates, current, past and future. Not only will remote systems have differing filename conventions lengths, allowable characters, etc , but then you'd have to check every single file before copying to see if it will work.
