10.3: Use Disk Utility to manage disk images
Authored by: pcunixapl on Nov 11, '03 08:02:54AM

I agree that it is confusing.

Download an iso image you want to burn. Pop in a blank CD, and a dialog pops up offering to open the CD in Finder or some other app - no mention of disk utility at all until you select it manually once.

So your natural impulse would be to let it take the default - open in Finder. Then what? Well, you could double click on your image, then select all the files and copy them to the CD, but nothing helps you find that out.

And even if you somehow guessed that Disk Utility was the right tool, what's obvious about clicking burn and then hunting for your image?

I think there should be a separate app - Mediatool or whatever, that is the default app for when blank media is inserted. It can then call iTunes or whatever once you've told it what you want to do.
