About ImageBurnerImageBurner is a front-end for the MacOS X "hdiutil" command-line tool. It allows you to easily burn disk images (such as ISOs) to CD-ROM or DVD-ROM using drag-and-drop, without messing with the command line or having to purchase Toast. There's nothing you can do in ImageBurner that you can't do in Apple's Disk Utility, but ImageBurner provides a simpler interface.
What's new in version 2.0
- Now a Universal application, and requires MacOS X 10.4 (compatible with Leopard)
- Supports multiple burners
- Supports erase before burn
- Added support for more disk image formats (.cdr, .sparseimage)
- Inbuilt help
- Some code cleanup and minor bug fixes
System requirementsImageBurner 2.0 was compiled and tested on MacOS X 10.4. It will not work on earlier versions of MacOS X, as it requires functionality only available in the 10.4 version of hdiutil. MediaEraser is not currently compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).
Image format supportCurrently, ImageBurner supports .dmg, .img, .iso, .cdr, .sparseimage and .toast files.
Installation instructionsTo install ImageBurner, download and mount the disk image. Drag the ImageBurner application to a suitable location on your hard drive (such as the Applications folder).
Using ImageBurnerTo burn an image file to disc, just drag the image to the ImageBurner icon (or, if ImageBurner is already running, into the ImageBurner window). You'll be prompted to insert a blank disc, and after you do so the burn will start.
Caution! If a writable disc is already in the optical drive when you give an image to ImageBurner, it will automatically be used. This is just the way the hdiutil tool works.
