Why is this happening?  I would like to burn a dvd from a .dmg file, but can't find the dvd on the desktop.

iMAC, Mac OS X (10.5.7)

    Look in Finder, you should see it on the sidepane of a Finder window. You can also tweak the Finder settings to show these on the Desktop by being in Finder - Preferences and then setting what you can and cannot display on the Desktop.

    Won't show up in either desktop or finder.  Already looked in both.  But did find a way to do it.  Drag and drop .dmg file to disk utility - highlight it - click on burn - THEN insert blank disc when asked to do so - works great.  Apparently you have to insert the disc AFTER the request, not before.  Go figure.
