    I have 3 large .dmg fragments that I am trying to piece back together as a mountable disk, but can't seem to do it with disk utility... any suggestions or help would be appreciated. I'm getting a checksum error (no idea what that is). Thanks.

    This is how Xcode works when you download it from Apple's site, its in fragments. The way its mounted is the first fragment is uncompressed (from a BIN file) and is mounted (all of the fragments are also in the same directory). All the rest will be mounted along with it if all goes right.

    Note: this is how it works with Xcode which is my only experience with fragments, I don't know if this will work for your situation.

    I just double clicked on the first fragment and it all mounted automatically. Disk Utility was never touched.
