How to burn an ISO file on a DVD in Mac OS X using Disk Utility

Because I alway forget how this exactly works, here is how to get and ISO image burned onto a DVD in Mac OS X. You will be using the application Disk Utility as it is installed by default on Mac OS X.

  1. Download the .ISO file to your computer. Use the desktop to find it back easily, but any other place will work just fine!
  2. Open Disk Utility. You can find this application in Utilities.
  3. Drag the .ISO file onto the left column (white) of Disk Utility. This tells the Disk Utility to do something with that ISO file.
  4. Highlight the image in the Disk Utility.
  5. Click Burn from the toolbar on top. Another screen will pop up, hit Burn to start burning.
