    Hello,

    I have this ISO file I need to open somehow but the mounting utility gives me an error ("not a mountable (sp?) file system") so I was wondering what's the trick. I have a burner on my iMac so I could burn it directly on a CD if I need to, what app should I use?

    Thanks!
    - Alex

    Not sure why it won't mount.

    If you need to burn it, you can use Disk Utility (located in Applications > Utilities). Just select the iso on the left and hit burn.

    Maybe there's something wrong with the ISO file, should I try to burn it or will I certainly waste a CD?

    well if you know someone else with the same iso file (particularly a known-good copy of the iso), try comparing md5 hashes for that iso to make sure yours isnt corrupted or something.
