try changing the extension on the DMG to .ISO (After you make a backup copy) then burn it

That worked, it copied the DVD but it wont boot, it goes to the screen that u drag the app into the applications folder. Thats before I even put the activation key so I dont think that will be bootable.

this doesn't answer your original question, but as an alternate idea, have you tried creating a bootable USB flash drive? maybe that will help you do what you need to do

I've not tried this myself, but it seems easy enough and I've heard other people say they've successfully done it. according to the article it needs a 16GB flash drive (but I seem to recall hearing someone say they've done it using an 8GB flash drive...)

Here are some instructions to Create an Emergency OS X Boot Device Using a USB Flash Drive

if that works, then you could put your other Drive Genius software on the USB drive then boot from that?

All you have to do is take the provided .iso file, drag it into disk utility, insert a DVD, and hit burn.

I have tried that rab, but I cant find the iso file within the app.

Maybe a hidden iso file?

All I can access is the DMG file, and when i burn that I get zero results.
