    Hey Guys.

    I'm having a bit of trouble with Disk Utility this morning.

    I'm trying to create a new .dmg from a CD, but whenever the process begins, without fail, i'll simply get a "Unable to create .dmg. In/Out Error"

    In looking around it appears to be something about disc utility not liking a disc, and I've basically read that it will not work using disc utility.

    So my question is: Is there an alternative to Disk Utility that I can use to creat a .dmg from a CD?

    Thanks!

    It sounds more like a problem with the disc than with Disk Utility. Can you verify the disc?

    If you want to create a copy of a CD, you will be making a .cdr instead of a .dmg file.

    When using Disk Utilities, click on the CD, which should be mounted, then select NEW IMAGE then select CD/DVD master.

    Edit: Toast is an alternative.
