    Hi.
    How do I burn a .dmg file, as well as a .txt file so that it goes on to one disk.
    I have tried Toast Titanium, but not sure what I'm doing...

    Thanks,
    Chris

    A .DMG is a Disk IMage, thus it is an exact image of a disk, you can burn them via Disk Utility.

    But if you want to add a .txt file to it, maybe mount the .dmg first and see, if you can add the .txt file to the mounted image, but chances are high, that this .dmg is read-only. Maybe you can create a similar sized disk image via Disk Utility with read and write capability and copy the contents of the one .dmg to the other and then add the .txt file to it and then burn it.

    Make sense!
    Thanks.

    What I ended up doing was placing both the .dmg and .txt files in a new folder, then right-clicked and selected burn to disk from the menu.

    Worked like a charm :)

    Thanks for you're reply.
