    Hi,

    I downloaded some .img files for Windows on my Mac. I burnt them onto a DVD and inserted them in my PC, but it didn't know what to do with them.

    So on my Mac I opened Toast and burnt the .img files to CD as a copy, but the PC can't detect them.

    How can I burn the files to CD or open them on the PC so the files can be accessed and used. Because I think the .img file needs to be 'mounted' on the PC to be used, but I don't know how to do this.

    Please could someone tell me how to get then .img files working s I can install the disc.

    Thanks

    Can you open it with Disk Utility and convert it/burn it with that?

    I tried Disk Utility, but it didn't want to burn it, it said it was unnrecognised or something?

    What is the nature of these .img files? I have files that are graphic image files, not disk image files. Take a look at your files with GraphicConverter to see if your image files are graphics files.

    .img files for Windows might be floppy disk images.

    Try using WinImage to open them.
