    I want to make a backup copy of the Snow Leopard distro DVD I purchased.

    It apparently is a double sided DVD.

    Is the standard DVD recorder that came with my last year's iMac capable of burning such a DVD and if so, which specific blank DVDs do I need?

    Also, is it possible to make a bootable copy of the DVD on one of my hard drive?

    Thanks!

    1) insert your SL retail DVD into your Imac superdrive and make a .DMG file using Disk Utility.

    2) burn that .dmg file on Dual Layer DVD (DL +R DVD) to make bootable backup dvd.


    PS: In the process of making the .dmg file, if it is mounted , means .dmg file is failed.

    So keep checking during the process of making .dmg file
