DMG files are very common on the MacOS X platform, used for Disk Images. With Disk Images we mean a full “copy” image of for example a CD, DVD or Harddisk. DMG‘s are typically used to distribute applications.
Some times however you’d prefer a ISO or a CDR image instead, for example for users on different platforms, or for offering other ways to burn an image to CD or DVD (if applicable).
In this article I’ll show you how you can convert a DMG file to either CDR or ISO under MacOS X, Windows or Linux.
So I wrote an article for Windows and MacOS X users, time to add one for Linux users as well – how to create an Audio CD.
Granted, most Linux users will not have a need for this article, but maybe it will be helpful for those of us that recently switched to Linux and do not really have an idea how to get started. Since there are so many variations of Linux, and this article not being focused on the die-hard Linux fan, I’ll be basing this article on Ubuntu (12) running a graphical user interface (X Windows) and using the program Brasero.
Audio CD’s are still being used. Either to protect the original CD you bought when it’s laying in the car, to compile a CD with your own favorites, or to make a CD from MP’3 you bought legit at Amazon.com for example.
