    Is it possible to change .dmg image file to .iso file in my MAC? What to do for that?

    I have a .dmg file in my Mac which is actually used in the MAC for writing the CD/DVD image but now I need this .dmg file to be converted to .iso image file which is also writable in CD/DVD but in other platforms. So can you please tell me if that’s is possible to be done in MAC? If so what are the steps to follow for it?

    Yes you can actually convert the .dmg file to .iso file without any problem in your MAC and the good thing is that you don’t need to install any 3rd party applications too as the option is available in the MAC OS by default. To do the conversion you can carry out either from the UI or from the command line. The below steps will help you to do in either ways,

    STEP 1: Go to the Utility folder from the Applications folder and open the Disk Utility option.
    STEP 2: Now in the opened disk utility application you can see the option named as “Convert”. Just select that and select the necessary file type to change the .dmg file.
    STEP 3: For command line change -> Open up the terminal with the Administrator privilege.
    STEP 4: Go to the Applications/Utilities folder and execute the command as “hdiutil convert /path/checkimage/image.dmg - format UDTO -o /path/checkimage/image2.iso and press enter.
    STEP 5: In the same way to convert the .iso file to .dwg you have to follow the command as “hdutil convert /path/checkimage/image.iso -format UDRW -o /path/checkimage/image2.dmg”.

    So in this way you can carry out the process of converting the image files from .dmg to .iso and .iso to .dmg file types without any problem but if you are still facing some problem or issues then kindly let us know your problem to get the fix for once for all?
