    I have a mac 10.1.5 just to let you know. I have trouble mounting .dmg application such as games and other files using disk copy. I got some searches leading me to downloading Repair Privileges. When I run it and have it ask me which mac os x volume I wish to reprair. I choose macintosh HD. As it scans the files it crashes around item 1065 (varies). Not totally crashed but the application Repair Privileges stops running.

    Well my probly is I can't mount .dmg files with disk copy and can't get it repaired.

    Hey! Actually I have no reply for you, but question-how did you go? I have problems downloading applications, opening that is. They download in .dmg file, but when I click on the file it looks like the computer is gonna open it, but then nothing happens. Since you've been around 'dmg issue' do you have any advice on this? racoonka:eek:

    Have you tried "Back-up and reinstall"? Try it it solves everything.

    Shouldn't have to reinstall, fixing permissions and hunting down and tossing the offending apps preference file sometimes works with less trouble.

    I did in the end reinstall, it was a longish process but it worked out for the best. And I got rid of lots of staff I didn't need. Me happy!!!!:D Thanx!
