I remember a bug several years ago where if you bought a computer with 10.3 then updated to 10.3.2 without mounting a DMG in between, mounting would break. I wonder whether that same issue now occurs if you go from 10.6 to 10.6.1 without mounting.

No DMG problems here.

The only time I've had DMG problems with Snow Leopard is when they are on a SMB share that gets disconnected. After a forced eject, you have to wait a while before it'll mount again. Some kind of background repair process maybe?

I'd say most of the time. Every now and then I get an error in Safari saying "The operation couldn't be completed (SafariErrorDomain Error2)". It's completely random; can happen with any file type.

if you're running a hackintosh, this is common and requires installing the something or other extension....


That's it... I think that's an apple Kext, so you could try replacing your copy from a different build of OS X and see if that helps
