You might think that a DVD is just used to play videos in a DVD player, but there are also data DVDs that are just meant to hold files to be read on a computer. A DMG is a type of file that is only used by Macintosh computers, but that doesn't mean you can't burn the file in Ubuntu Linux. Ubuntu is a Linux operating system, which means that it and nearly all of its software is 100 per cent free for you to use for as long as you want.

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Insert a blank DVD into your DVD burner. Close any windows that open as a result of you inserting the blank DVD.

  2. 2

    Click on "Applications" > "Accessories" > "CD/DVD Creator."

  3. 3

    Wait for the CD/DVD Creator to open. When it does, you'll be given an open window. Drag your DMG file into this window.

  4. 4

    Click the "Write to Disc" button in the upper-right corner of the program window. Ubuntu Linux will then proceed to burn your DMG file to the DVD you inserted into the DVD burner.
