    Help: Best Mac & Windows Apps to get perfect ISO backup of Bootable Snow Leopard DVD?

    I've used Nero, UltraISO, MagicISO and ImgBurn in my experiences on Windows.
    Which of these 3 would make the best ISO Backup?

    Which one does the best perfect copy of the SL DVD into ISO?

    They all work so in a sense wouldn't they all be "perfect" :confused:

    If they wouldn't be perfect then you'd not have a valid copy.

    You're question really doesn't make sense. It either produces an exact ISO copy or it doesn't. Personally I use the terminal to do it, but you can also use OSX's disk utility.

    I've used
    diskutil unmountDisk disk1
    dd if=/dev/disk1 of=file.iso (this is assuming that disk1 is the optical drive.

    I'm not sure on the windows side, but i use Disk Utility to make a image of SL.
