ISO image is an archived file of an optical disc, which contains the data contents of the each every written sector of the optical disc. Most the large file softwares and Operating Systems like Windows 8 Developer preview, Ubuntu and some other OS are available in ISO images format for download. Generally these ISO archive images have the file extension .iso and these images can be burned to DVD or CD to use them on the other computers or to share them with others.
These ISO images are created from the optical disks with the help of the disk imaging software or from the different disk image file by conversion. Here I am going to discuss how to burn the ISO disc image on the Mac computer.

- Make sure that you have ISO image file, otherwise download it from the internet.
- Now insert the DVD into your computer, this works for CD also but usually ISO files are large and so DVD is comfortable. For small files you can use CD as well.
