    I'm trying to use Disc Copy to mount an image, but its not letting me. It keeps telling me that the file type is not recognized, but it is a .dmg file. Can someone possibly help me out? Thanks.

    Where did it come from? Are you sure it isn't corrupted?

    yeah im sure its not corrupt, i got it from a friend who has used the file multiple times with no problems at all. even whenim navigating through the files to mount while using disc copy, dmg files wont even show up. i select desktop to browse for my desired files and every file is there except my dmg files, i dont get it

    Mmmm, are dmg's associated with disk utility? That's strange... Can you right click and re-associate them?

    Right click on the file, or hold ctrl and click on it. Choose Open with. And then Choose Other. In the requester, click the "always open with..." button and select Disk Utility.

    Although Disk Utilities can create and edit disk image files, the default handler for these files is DiskImageMounter. This headless utility taken over disk image mounting duties from DiskCopy, which has been otherwise folded into Disk Utilities.
