    You should also be able to do this...

    1. Run Disk Utility
    2. Select the .dmg in the left column
    3. Select "convert" from the menu at the top
    4. Select "DVD/CD master" as the image format
    5. Save the new file
    6. The file will be created as ".cdr" and can then be renamed to ".iso"

    I believe in the past, I have just replaced .dmg with .iso and virtualbox mounted it with no problems. If not, then MacDawg's instructions will do what you need to do.

    I believe that works in many, but not necessarily all cases
