Easily Mount an ISO in Mac OS XFriday, 4 June 2010 03:32 by DavianIf you’re wondering how to mount an ISO image in Mac OS X, it is very easy. For most ISO images you can mount them simply by double-clicking the ISO image file, and it will go through the auto-mounter app within OS X putting it on your desktop. If for whatever reason that doesn’t work there are other methods to mount ISO’s within Mac OS X. In the Terminal type the following command:hdiutil mount sample.isowith sample.iso being the path to the image you want to mount. After the checksum is completet, your ISO will appear mounted on your Mac OS X desktop – that’s it. You you can actually mount virtually any other disk image type with hdiutil as well, so give .dmg .img a try too.Has the ISO file still not mounted on your Mac? Try using Disk Utility, located in the /Applications/Utilities/ directory. After you have launched Disk Utility, navigate from the Disk Utility menu down to “Open Image File” and select your ISO file. The ISO should now appear mounted on the Mac OS desktop.
