Overburning script for Mac OS X, Record large films in Mac

If you use the Finder burning tool to create your CDs, or an application that doesn't support overburning (surpass a little bit the CD or DVD maximum size) I am sure that some time you got anrgy.

Sometimes are films, sometimes it's just one more song in the CD library you are creating... The thing is that you have 703MB and you cannot burn a 700MB CD. It won't happen again!

Because I did a script to overburn CDs and DVDs, and it's quite simple if you want to try it:

hdiutil makehybrid -o tempfile contents_to_overburn/
hdiutil burn tempfile.iso
rm tempfile.iso
rm contents_to_overburn/*

At this point you have the CD burned and the folder emptied for a next use. Hope that works for you, enjoy. This script can be improved or even integrated with the OS X environment easily. If you feel like doing it, please share :)

See the Apple developer page for hdiutil for more information.
