Forum Question: Creating ISO Files In Mac OS ?

Good Afternoon,
In Windows, one can create iso files of programs that can be stored on the hard drive of the computer or on external media, which when required can be run from a “virtual drive”.
Does this function exist in Mac OS or is there an equivalent ?
kind regards……

    Yes. On OS X these are called disk images. They are single files with a .dmg extension that contain a “virtual disk.”
    You can create them using Disk Utility, which comes with every mac.
    This tutorial deals with it, from the perspective of copying disks. But you can get the idea from there.

    Should you need to create an actual “.iso” file, I believe it’s identical to the “DVD/CD master (“.cdr”?) format in Disk Utility, so just create a “.cdr” then rename it to “.iso”.
