Convert .dmg files to .iso files for buring elsewhere
Authored by: regeya on Jan 30, '04 11:46:30AM
You could always compress the ISO with gzip or bzip2, then decompress them before burning. Or if you're a l33t d00d, I suppose you could find a way to pipe the output of either bzip2 or gzip to a command-line burner. :-D

What I am looking for is the cross-platform equivalent of compressed .dmg's. The content is compressed, but the disk image is still mountable without decompressing with some other utility.

Just in case someone else is wondering, there is no such thing. ISO doesn't have compression and it is basically the only standard in common use for transferring CDROM and DVDROM images.
