[OS X] the Recorded image of the disk at the El Capitan


New OS X brought many changes, including packaged applications like Disk utility. Now the latter no longer is responsible for recording images, but the interesting feature isn’t gone. On the contrary, cause it has never been easier.

If you long been working on a Mac, then most likely you had to deal with the record disk images on removable media. Despite the absence in most current models built-in optical drives, many users still work with these drives, and Apple’s decision to remove the usual option to burn from Disk utility hardly like. Fortunately, this problem can be solved very easily — just follow a few simple steps.

  • Insert a blank disc into the drive
  • Select the image in the Finder
  • In the context menu, called by pressing the right mouse button, or menu “File” in the OS X menu bar select “Burn image to disc”

This method works with both the format of DMG, ISO and more common.


For those users who are closer to the comfort of the command line, there is a command “Terminal” (by default, this utility is located in the Utilities folder). Of course, recall that even the simplest tools Are best to use only when you really know what you’re doing.

hdiutil burn ~/Potfarmers

After entering the command will start the recording process, after which you will receive a notification in the application window. By the way, using the hdutil you can also create disk images.


hdiutil makehybrid -iso -joliet -o image.iso /file_path

For example, if we are talking about the installation disk of Windows 7, the image which you want to save it on the desktop, you need a team looks like.

hdiutil makehybrid -iso -joliet -o ~/Desktop/Windows7.iso /Volumes/Windows 7 Install

Option -joliet is required for compatibility with other OS, if you mean OS X, then it can be omitted.

I hope these simple tips will make the already stunning Mac more convenient. Fast you write!
