    I can’t use the “unmount” command. Everytime time i try i get the message:

    unmount: command not found

    How can i install the “unmount” command?

      Typo, should be ‘umount’ not ‘unmount’

      Thanks for catching that.

        Something strange, I tried ‘umount’ and get this message:

        umount(/Volumes/SEM TITULO): Resource busy — try ‘diskutil unmount’

        Then i tried what terminal told me to do, ‘diskutil unmount’ and it worked.
        I will try to finish the tutorial this way and see if it work.

    man hdiutil

    sh-3.2$ hdiutil burn
    hdiutil: burn: no input file specified
    Usage: hdiutil burn [options]

    I think the command parameters are reversed. It should be dd count=1 if=/dev/disk1s1/ of=/Users/Will/Desktop/OSXMountainGorilla.iso

      By reversing the parameters, you end up creating an ISO rather than burning it.

    This is completely wrong. You will end up hosing your disk or burning a coaster.

    Use hdiutil as mentioned by “me”

      This is not wrong. Don’t spread false information. DD (Disk Druid) is the most generally accepted way to perform tasks like this on both OS X and Linux machines. DD works, it’s fast, and hdiutil while effective is generally more difficult for beginners to use by copying commands from a website as I’m sure we’ve all done in the past.

      TL;DR – Wrong is wrong. DD is good. hdiutil is also fine, but hard to use properly.

        dd is much more complicated. If you only have one burner.
        Command line for hdiutil is
        hdiutil burn

        I don’t see how that is more complicated than dd. :) But I do use dd for a lot of other things.
