    Dsik Utility/Disk Image Brief Tutorial Requested
    Hi All . . . I have used the SEARCH function with no luck. I need to burn copies of a "homemade" DVD. The DVD plays fine and is not copy protected. I tried to use Disk Utility to create a Disk Image to burn DVD copies. All I did was make a mess and I don't even know where the Disk Image (if it was created) is now. I also used the HELP feature in Disk Utility which made it sound so simple. My computer ran for a long, long time and I thought it was working. Then it just stopped with no further instructions or messages. Would someone please give me a quick tutorial on Disk Images and burning DVDs? Where would the Disk Image created be found so I can delete it now? Thanks in advance . . . Brent "Dogbreath" Wilson

    Maybe Toast Titanium will be your best shot.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thank you both, harryb2448 and docx, for taking the time to reply. I had a copy of Titanium Toast 10 Pro from an earlier set up. I reloaded it and updated it. I wish I had taken the time to figure out how NOT to load the other apps on that disk...but I have them now. I like a neat, clean hdd without a bunch of small apps on there I will never use. ANYWAY, the Toast 10 worked well.
    I can take my time now and learn about creating a disk image and using Disk Utility. I noticed Toast has a feature which allows one to create a disk image.

    Again, thanks for your replies.

    No problems. Don't worry about the other programs such as Disc Cover etc. if you do not activate them they do not take up a great deal of room on the hard drive and in the Toast folder ~ out of sight out of mind!
