    I recently downloaded a .iso file for someone and burnt it using the built-in disk burner...however, the someone told me that I was meant to burn it as as raw data instead of a file..which would result in lots of files and directories on the cd instead of the one .iso file...I don't think this is possible with Disk Burner and was wondering if it is..or if there's a free program that can do it..help?

    actually you can just use disk copy (Applications/Utilities/Disk Copy) to burn an iso image. just tried it and it worked fine. if you need to create an iso image you can get mkisofs at http://www.versiontracker.com/macosx

    Using Disk Copy is the simplest way (if you're in OS X) - you already have everything you need.

    Open Disk Copy (Applications/Utilities/)

    Then go to the "Image" menu, and select "Burn Image"

    Select the image you want to burn and click "Burn". A few disc revolutions later, you have a brand spankin' CD.

    toast makes it really easy, but you have to pay for it:(.
