    I have a major issue with my Powerbook. Everytime I try load up a .dmg file, the computer attempts to mount it, and then I get an error message saying "Disk Copy helper unexpectedly terminated." At first I thought it was a problem with those specific .dmg files but it does that to every single one I aquire, including iMovie 3 and Quicktime 6 dmgs. Has anyone had this problem before? I desperately need to fix this. I've tried running a virus scan and no difference. I'm running a 1Ghz Powerbook on OS 10.2.3. Any help from anyone would be greatly apprecitated. thanks!

    You could try the "mount" command in the terminal, but I'm not sure of the syntax of that in OS X.

    Reread my post

    MacDuff the tittle of my first post on this thread, I think you skipped over. It has worked for me.
    Open it with Stuffit expander.
