CONVERTING DMG TO ISO AND ISO TO DMG


Ever happened that you had got an application from a widows user in an ISO format and your machine needs DMG file type. This and vice-versa is possible by using command utility included in Mac OS X called hdiutil. Simply launch the Terminal and use the commands below, replacing the path and image file with your own.

Convert a DMG file to ISO format

hdiutil convert /path/imagefile.dmg -format UDTO -o /path/convertedimage.iso

Convert an ISO file to DMG format

hdiutil convert /path/imagefile.iso -format UDRW -o /path/convertedimage.dmg
This method is specially beneficial if you have a CD/DVD burner on.
