Last week, I finally had the time to upgrade to OS X 10.4.6. Today, I wanted to upgrade one of my apps. However, I got an error "(Disk Image File) Failed to mount." I tried mounting other files, but those didn't work either. How can I fix this?

Thanks

If you Get Info on the image (from the File menu), what does it say it is using to open the image with? :)
I get: DiskImageMounter (default), DiskUtillity, and FlashMount. Neither of these work.

But the problem is, I can't open DMG files!
The 10.4.6 updater for PPC (not the Intel or Combo version) causes Disk Utility to stop working properly. If you install the combo updater, it should work fine (it did for me mini, see sig.)

Can you open it either through Disk Utility (through the app, not the contextual menu) or from another Mac? :)
It is stuck on Initializing, but I'll give it an hour or so, and my Mac-using friends are having the same problem.

UDATE: I still get the same message. The last thing I want to do is reinstall OS X, but if it is my only option, I'll do it.
