Hi everyone.

I have a few .iso programs on my mac that I dont understand how to use. I was told to use a iso program to burn them to a disc or cd and when that was done I could put the disc in my mac and it would run. How do I do this. Do I need a special program. A little walkthrough would really help guys. Thanks

Mount the iso with /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility

You'll see a disk show up on the left hand side of a Finder window. You will be able to browse the disk at this point.

This is not working for me or I am doing something wrong. Let me explain further.

I have a program that I have on my desktop that I want to install but it is an .iso file. I was told to burn it to a disc first than all I need to do was pop it back into my mac and it would work like a normal program install disc. This is what I need to do. I have the Disc utility (of course) and I also have toast titanium so a good walk through with either of these (preferably toast, heard it was eaiser but either will be great) would be much appreciated, I really need to get this program up and running.

Thanks again for helping this newbie.

Have you tried selecting the image in the disk utility application and then select mount?

No I have not, Like I said, I am pretty new to this. If I do that what do I do next to install?

You might even be able to just double click the iso image and install whatever it is right from the mounted disk without having to burn it to an actual cd first. It's worth a try.

But if you still need to burn it to a cd/dvd here's a link explaining. It's a pretty simple process.
