    I downloaded some instructional videos off the web that are .iso files.

    I want to burn them to DVD to watch on my regular home television.

    I can't see to figure it out with Toast 9.

    Is it possible to do so... and if so... how?


    Thanks for any help.

    MacOS X's built-in Disk Utilities will do it.

    I already tried that route. It ended up burning a mixed media DVD that was unplayable. Unless there is something I'm doing wrong.

    That can happen if the person who made the .iso did so incorrectly.

    Uhh... that info could be helpful if, for example, you want to help someone avoid wasting time trying to burn a bad iso to a disc. :rolleyes:

    Wow. I don't think he was trying to annoy, just inform. Since you are asking for help on a rather non-complex matter, maybe he thought your knowledge was limited. No need to be rude. You catch more flies with honey, than with vinegar.

    If you followed these steps, then I don't have any further help, but it seems pretty straightforward.

    Also check out Burn, it is a free disc burning utility. Haven't used it though, so I can't comment on it, really.

    With Toast, you just want to do a disk-to-disk copy. Just select the ISO image as the source disk and your DVD in the burner as the target. I do this all the time with ISO images.

    Yea, after I posted it... I realized he meant the guy that created the original iso. I thought at first he was talking about me. Sorry to the original poster.
