Chapter 31. Understanding and Using Data... > Burning CDs/DVDs with Disk Utility

Burning CDs/DVDs with Disk Utility

In addition to helping you maintain your disks, Disk Utility can also help you burn CDs and DVDs. It is especially useful when you want to burn a CD or DVD from a disk image file. Another great use of this is to back up image files for the applications you download from the Internet; rather than keeping a folder of these items on your hard drive, you can use Disk Utility to burn a folder of images onto a CD or DVD.

The benefit to burning a disk image onto a CD or DVD using Disk Utility rather than just using the Finder is that, when you use Disk Utility, the image is mounted when you insert the CD—you don't have to first open the disk image file to mount it.
