Burn Image to CD or DVD with Disk Utility

You really don’t need a separate CD or DVD burning application on your Mac OS X, especially if you want to do something as simple as burning an image to a CD or DVD. Mac OS X’s Disk Utility is all you need:

  1. Minimize all your application windows and click an empty area of your desktop. Click the Go | Utilities menu option. In the resultant Finder window, click the Disk Utility icon to launch the program — you will see the interface shown in Figure 1.

  2. Click the Burn button on the toolbar. This will bring up the Select Image to Burn dialog — navigate and select a DMG or other image format that Disk Utility can work with. Select the Burn button.
  3. Disk Utility will ask you to insert a blank disc (see Figure 2). Insert a disc, and in a while, your image will be burnt to a disc.
