    The disk image files are damaged or your copy of DiskImageMounter is damaged. You may try opening the files in Disk Utilities to see if you can repair the images or mount them from there.

    ok .dmg files work fine, but its the .dms ones that won't work, i had a problem with this before, not like this, but the alias needed to be fixed. anyways they won't mount, and i can't see them in the disc utility, so i can't check if they are corrupted or not

    it says that the file isn't recognised, but i know that it should be, i've verified that with the sites

    Are you using SpeedDownload? If so, get rid of it.

    Second, the following should fix it: simply change the ".dms" to ".dmg" by renaming that part of the filename and it should then open by either double clicking it, or by dragging it onto Stuffit Expander. [.dms files are not Macintosh compressed files and you are getting them as a mistake from what I've been able to gather on the subject--the renaming thing should fix it]

    Good luck.

    Are you sure? What kind of file is .dms? The only remotely related reference that I can find is Document Management System.

    don't you hate it when the things that seem the hardest are in fact so very simple, that worked perfectly, thanks a LOT
