How to Burn a DMG to DVD in Ubuntu
DVDs typically hold a little over 4 GB of data. (a dvd-r disc image by wayne ruston from Fotolia.com)

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.
