FreeDMG is one of the most powerful and easy to use disk imaging program available for Mac OS X. With this software it is possible to quickly perform disk imaging on the fly. Both the program's window, and the dock icon can be used for drag-and-drop imaging. There many image formats that that can be chosen (UDZO, UDCO, etc.). FreeDMG can make Internet enabled disk images for distribution to Macs as well as ISO/Joliet hybrid images for cross-platform delivery. Verbose preferences, and a built-in log window help users hide/display additional information about the imaging process.

Gain easy access to the many options available for more...

What's New

Version 0.5.9b:
  • Removed "Create from Device" option under Images menu (was causing crashing in 10.6)
  • Checks for empty volume/device array before updating menus in "-menuNeedsUpdate" method (was crashing on launch when run on 10.4/10.6 machines)

Requirements

Operating system: • Mac OS X v.10.4.x-10.6.x Optional requirements: • Xcode tools must be installed to attach SLAs to images. • Xcode v.3.2 required to attach SLAs to images in Snow Leopard. • Mac OS X v.10.5.2 or higher is required to use encryption in Leopard (encryption works normally in all versions of 10.4).

Hi, this application is really great, so simple to use and it works very, very fine with my SL 10.6.8.
I have tried others, but this one is for me the top.
And it gives many options, everything works without any problems.
Many thanks to the developer who offers this wonder even for free !
It saves so much time in my work, and i can do now actions who made me afraid in the past with other apps.
I am really very happy that i found this app. by chance.
Thank you extremely !
Excuse me my poorly english, i am a eldery french Mac friend.
Regards, F Rol, (france)

I can't use this, as it does the oddest thing...
Anytime I enter a text box, and click a key, the application loses the ability to track keyboard or mouse events, and will no longer respond to any type of system calls (sorry no quitting, even from the dock). The only exit is by pulling up the Force Quit dialog. Thankfully opt-tabbing still worked, as does clicking on the background. Or I would have had to force a reset.
Very, very odd.

Can you provide more information about when you are seeing this? What operation (if any) were you performing when this occurred?

Please submit bug reports or feedback on the Kelley Computing website:

This problem was related to window size settings. Either removing preferences, or re-sizing the window may solve issues carried across from older versions of FreeDMG.

Really does create a dmg file easily. The only thing really missing is the ability to include a background image for the dmg window and hide the image file on the dmg.

Yeah, so this program works good. :D The preferences are fairly advanced it seems. Still a little buggy. I would be willing to pay $5.00 to $10.00 for this application. Thanks for the ease of read-only volume creation. :) I use the create from volume function a lot to back up my CDs!

Why does the link to Kelley Computing set off Little Snitch? Whats the point in that?

The Web Server running at www.kelleycomputing.net is using a "performance cache". This allows the server to provide clients on the internet a cached version of the web page, without having to read from disk. This speeds up the browsing experience in some cases.

The reason little snitch was complaining, was because the port 16080 is used (instead of port 80). Little Snitch is telling you this because you have not chosen to trust connections using that port yet.

More information can be found by googling "web performance cache 16080".

There was a small bug in the initial release of FreeDMG 0.5.2b. The issue has been corrected (via silent update). The software will no longer crash on launch.

Thanks to everyone for their promt and informative feedback!

Thanks!

FreeDMG is also crashing immediately on my machine (G5, running 10.2.8). Too bad it's happening with this version; all the ones before have been troublefree. Back to the drawing board on this one, I'm afraid.

I tried to contect the author about my problems to open FreeDMG, but his page doesn't respond to clicks on the Submit button... Not in hte Contact Me page, nor in Bug report page...
He must be completely sunk in bugs... :(
