How do I make a .dmg so I can make a backup copy of a CD for example? Say I want to make a backup copy of my Photoshop 7.0 disk to have in case something happens to the original, how do I go about doing that? <br><br>TIA<br><br>
First, this should be in the OSX section Mike....<br><br>But I do believe Disc Copy does that or if not, since I have never done it, check at versiontracker for 3rd party apps..I have seen them there.<br><br>
Mike just drop the app in to Disk Copy, select the location to save the file and ...thats it. <br><br>DMG Tool compress an create dmg files<br><br><br><br> <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Mactico on 10/27/02 09:08 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

That is what I plan to do, burn it to a CD. I can do that from a .dmg, right? I am tryiing to get around not having a separate CD-ROM drive and separate CD-RW drive. My wife's PC has one, but I don't think it will do Mac disks. So, I was thinking if I make a .dmg first, I can then use that to burn a CD. That's my thinking, but I obviously know little about this whole process, this is the first Mac I have had that has a CD-RW drive. Comments?<br><br>
If you have Toast for CD burning, you can just drag the CD to the Toast window and go under the file menu (I think it's the file menu) and select "save as disk image" which will create an exact copy of the cd on your desktop. Then spit out the CD, pop in a blank CD. Then drag the disk image to the Toast Window and hit Burn CD.<br><br>If you don't have Toast, the process is similar using Disk Copy. You can create an image under the file menu, then burn it.<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red>
