    Hi,
    I'm pretty new to the OSX world. I know Windows like the back of my hand, and I'd be pretty good with the late 90's era macs that I used in school.
    Anyways, I've collected a bunch of dmg's for various programs and I'd like to burn these all to a CD. I know how to burn these; but I don't know if it's possible to burn the files inside (not sure if this is the right terminology) so I don't have to mount each image on the CD to install each program.

    Is this possible?

    Hmm... Well I reckon you'll have to open 'em all at some stage. You can either open them now and drag the contents to a blank disc or you can burn the DMGs as they are and mount them when necessary. Sorry that's not very helpful. :eek:

    Thanks, that'll probably be what I do. I didn't know if there was something else I had to do after I mounted them to make sure everything got in there.

    The DMG contains all the pertinent data so burning the DMG to a disc will mean you can then use OSX to mount them to access everything. :)
