Chapter 22. Advanced iDVD > Disk Images and External DVD Burners

22.10. Disk Images and External DVD Burners

Thanks to a new iDVD 5 feature, you can now save your project as a computer file called a disk image. And from there, you can do something that many iDVD fans have always wanted to do: burn DVDs on an external, non-Apple DVD burner.

You may have run into the disk-image (.dmg or .img) format before; it's a popular storage format for software you download. It's so popular because you get a single, self-contained file that contains many other files, arrayed inside exactly as though they're on a disk. When you open a disk image file, in fact, it turns into a little harddisk icon on your desktop, with all of its contents tucked inside.
