OS X: Make an ISO

You can use Disk Utility to create ISO images in Mac OS X:

  1. Click “New Image+” on the tool bar
  2. For “Image Format” select “CD/DVD Master”
  3. For “Encryption” leave it at “none”
  4. Rename the resulting .cdr file to .iso

I found this handy hint on the Internet as well. To convert a .dmg file, you can use hdiutil to convert it!

hdiutil convert original.dmg -format UDTO -o newisoimage.cdr

Like above, it insists on naming it .cdr instead of .iso.
