So we have a project where we are creating USB disks that contain both Mac and Windows files. We have made numerous manual disk copies ourselves. Now we need to give the manufacturer (who will be making 1000s of these disks) an easy way to create them. We tried a ZIP file, but Windows treats Mac DMG files funny and it causes problems with our software that we are writing on the USB flash drives. So we thought about creating something like an ISO image for them. Everything I find on ISO states it is for optical drives only. Is there such a thing (creating a disk image) for USB flash drives? ANy other suggestions?
The end user would not see the ISO file. We were thinking of creating the ISO for the Vendor. Then the vendor could "mount" the ISO or extract the files and begin duplicating the USB drives from the ISO. I know you can make DVD/CDs from ISO images, but I don't know if you can do such a thing with USB flash drives. Again, the ISO would simple be so the vendor would have one file to create the USB disks from. I hope this makes sense...Cause it is a little foggy to me
