Burning an ISO image on a Mac


I thought this would have been easy but apparently not …

So you get an ISO and you want to burn it to disk. You need to open up Disk Utility to burn it.

I found the most convenient way to do this was to right click on the file (or CTL-Click), Choose Open With >> Disk Utility.app

Once there, Click on the ISO file so it’s highlighted, then click on the Burn button at the top.

That’s it. It’s simple once you know how but coming from a Windows background, I expected the burn option when I right clicked the file, or to simply drag the iso file to my “Burn Folder”. If you do that BTW it will burn the iso FILE on the disk, not the contents of the image…. very helpful!
