Sorry you are having problems:
Double Click on the sugar.iso you downloaded to the Mac Desktop
-this will mount it as a disk on the desktop
open Disk Utility
-select the same .iso
Click Burn on top bar of Disk utility (circle with yellow and black sectors)
This is detailed in a series of annotated screen shots from my Mac
Powerbook Pro i7 here:
Hope this works.
