    What is an ISO image? ISO is the name of a standards organization. It
    promulgates standards. You want an image of a standard? Or perhaps you
    mean an ISO 9660 image? In that case, Toast can make one (though not,
    perhaps, the reduced version of Toast that came for free with your
    burner). Alternatively, Mac OS X does it. m.

    Roxio Toast Lite 5.1.4 does it, but Apple's Disk Copy evidently doesn't.

    But the Finder does.

    Do I infer correctly that MacOS 9 alone cannot do this? One needs
    either Toast (or other 3rd party software) or MacOS X (without the
    need for 3rd party software)?

    Someone else might have tried this; I never have (because I use Toast

    would not be correct.

    Toast 3.5 running on MacOS 7.5.5 can be used to make an ISO-9660 image,
    as well as a hybrid between ISO-9660 and Macintosh HFS.

    It does not have strong enforcement of ISO-9660 rules, however, and lets
    you put lowercase characters into the Volume ID field. That is fine if
    you are reading the resultant volume on a Macintosh (and probably on
    Windows). But if you want to be strictly compatible with ISO-9660 you
    have to be careful of what data you supply.

    Only for CD-R/RW. Not for DVD-R.

    But that page seems to indicate the resulting hybrid disk is only
    ISO-9660 Level 1 (truncated file names, etc.) which is about right
    for MS-DOS users but far below the expectations of someone using
    Macintosh, VMS, Unix or even Windows.

    How do you tell the Finder that you want to burn an ISO 9660 image?

    The default format is HFS+.

    If I use the Finder to duplicate an ISO 9660 CD, the copy shows up in the
    Finder with Format: "Mac OS Extended". The original has Format: "ISO
    9660".

    I may be missing something, but the only way I have found to create an
    ISO 9660 CD on the Mac is to use third-party software.

    I bet the Finder shows an HFS+ structure by preference. So a disc that
    was both HFS+ and ISO9660 would be displayed as HFS+. That does not
    mean it is not ISO9660. To be sure, test it on an operating system
    that does not support HFS+ but does support ISO9660.
