How do I make a .iso file on my mac?

Asked by xxporkxsodaxx (1386points) September 25th, 2008

Yes I have searched it and have read how to do it but I can’t really get it to work, I would prefer to be in communication with someone that can sort of guide me through or just give me a simpler solution. I have all my files in the folder I want to make, but how do I make it?

With Toast Titanium you can build an ISO file by clicking data-> iso. Then drag the files into the area and click the big red burn button. It’s not freeware but if you already have it (or want to download it) then it’s a great solution.

Are you afraid of the Terminal? If not, you can do it freely and legally.

1. Open /Applications/Utility/Disk Utility
2. Select File -> New -> Disk Image from Folder
3. Select the folder you want to convert to an iso file
4. Save the file on your desktop as image.dmg, and click Save. Let Disk Utility do what it does best, and you will be left with a .dmg file.
5. Open Terminal.
6. Type: hdiutil convert ~/Desktop/image.dmg -format UDTO -o ~/Desktop/image.iso

Voila! You now have an .iso file on your desktop.

Note: It’ll probably be called image.iso.cdr. You can remove the .cdr if you like.
