    Hey guys,

    How do I make a disc image of a dvd or cd on my iMac? I know I have to go DiskUtility and then New Image, but I don't want to try it until I know exactly what to do after that so I don't damage anything.

    If you're going to burn it I'd say CD/DVD master. I have a scratched Tiger DVD and want to make a copy of it.
