    Default Help: Best Mac & Windows Apps to get perfect ISO backup of Bootable Snow Leopard DVD?

    Help: Best Mac & Windows Apps to get perfect ISO backup of Bootable Snow Leopard DVD?

    I've used Nero, UltraISO, MagicISO and ImgBurn in my experiences on Windows.
    Which of these 3 would make the best ISO Backup?

    Which one does the best perfect copy of the SL DVD into ISO?

    Disk Utility is the best option for making ISOs of OS X boot disks.
    Not sure why you are asking for Mac/windows options and list only windows apps as options you have tried.

    As it was mentioned before, Disk Utility is the best one and it is integrated into the Mac Os X

    I have more experience with such utilities on Windows.
    Does DU make accurate ISOs or DMGs only?

    As long as it does .ISOs I'll bite.

    Also, I need to do the same on a Windows machine also. (Dont have Macs everywhere I go).

    Disk Utility can make iso images. Best to use Apple's own tools to make an image of their boot DVD.

    Not sure about windows, however once you have made an ISO of the Snow Leopard DVD (via disk utility) you can transfer this ISO file to other computers and burn it with pretty much most windows dvd burning software that can write a DVD from an ISO image.

    Note, I hope you are making these copies for "personal backup" purposes, we don't endorse illegal piracy here.

    That is the name of the windows partition on the DVD - this is used for installing windows drivers when you want to dual-boot a genuine mac.
    Again, this is a reason why I recommend Disk Utility - it will create an ISO of the whole DVD (if you use it correctly). It is entirely possible that your windows app only created an ISO of the "boot camp" partition on the DVD.
