Hello,

i would like to move some of my iDVD Projects for Storage as an iso file so it can be opened in the future on a pc as well.

However whenever i go to Save as an image it will create an img file. If i save it as DVD.iso then it will create an DVD.iso.img file :confused:

I'd like to know how i can create a iso file which i can open with a PC.
Deamon Tools for PC doesnt support img files and i generally like iso files better.

help anyone? im sure its an easy one, i just dont get behind it

Pls excuse the Header spelling mistake, just got to see it

I'm not in front of a Mac at the moment, but can you create the .img and then convert it to a CD/DVD Master using Disk Utility? That will result in a .cdr file, but just rename it to .iso and it should work.

alternatively from the command line: (open terminal in Applications/Utilities)

Code:
hdiutil convert DVD.img -format UDTO -o DVD.iso
replace DVD.img with your input img and DVD.iso for the final iso image.

Click on the popup list that currently reads "compressed", and you will see an option for DVD/CD master. Select that, and it will convert your .img into a .cdr. Rename ".cdr" to ".iso". I think that will probably do the trick. If your PC utilities still don't understand that format then you'll have to drop to the command line and issue another of those conversion commands, but this has worked for me in the past with DaemonTools and MagicISO.
