Any reason to use Burn instead of Toast(assuming you have it)?
Burning Wii backup iso in OSX
Why not just use the built in 'Disk Utility' app - works for me.
if you have OSX, you have it already!
Open 'Disk Utility' (in Applications/Utilities)
click the 'Burn' icon or press command+B
navigate to your .iso file in the pop up dialog and select it
choose burn speed (I burn all mine on x2 speed)
I had the most success with Memorex DVD-R (Verbatim all failed for me)
I'm wondering whether this method works for GC Multi Isos - I don't see why it shouldn't.
* yeah, works fine for Gamecube isos too!

Reason: adding info
Yeah, Disk Utility is what did it for me.

Would those of you who have successfully burned an ISO, please update with the utility you used and the version of the OS that you're currently on (e.g, Diskutil 10.4; LiquidCD 10.3; etc.)
I am currently on 10.6.2 and have tried to use diskutil with no success. If anybody is on Snow Leopard (10.6), and has successfully burnt images, please let me know how you did it! Thank you in advance!

Reason: Typo resolution
hsoj - when you say you are trying to use 'diskutil' to burn isos, it sounds like you using command line entry in the 'Terminal' application to do this?

If you are attempting to do this with the command line, maybe just try doing it using the method I described a few posts ago or follow the method in Arachnetoad's video - looks like the guy in the video was using 10.6!?)
I am sorry for the confusion, I was short handing the "Disk Utility.app" with out taking any regard to the diskutil CLI application. I am in fact using "Disk Utility", and it is doing what appears to be a "block" on allowing for the ISO's to be burnt.

On a side note, I was reading someone's blog (don't remember who now, read it last night while I was pretty drunk =/; hell, it might not even exist! ). But they did mention that they experienced problems after an update on Leopard; which wouldn't be much of a surprise to me. I really have taken this information with a grain of salt, as I really do not have any tangible information on it.
Any help in this regard is much appreciated.
