FreeDMG overview

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 creating and manipulating disk images in Mac OS X with FreeDMG. From the hidden "resize" function of hdiutil to the adjustable compresion levels available for the UDZO format, this software attempts to unveil it all. Users have the option to overwrite exising files, and can choose to quit the program automatically after creating an image on launch. It is possible to encrypt images (password protect) with the click of a button.

With FreeDMG you can attach beautiful html/rtf software license agreements to disk images. This software is currently the best way to add SLAs to disk images for multi-lingual distribution. The license creation process in FreeDMG prevents character loss for all 2-byte languages.

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.

Nice program, but when I click on something else and FreeDMG loses focus, I get this http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/2168/picture2ds1.png

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!
