I have a DMG on my ibook which I need to burn using Nero on my PC, what format would work so I can do this and is there a utility that I can use to do this? Thanks!

I was thinking DMG to ISO and buring but would that work? It is an older Mac OS I want to burn.

All up in your bidness
There is no other kind of image than a DMG. A disk image is a disk image. Do you mean you want to put a different filesystem on the image? Nero shouldn't care about what's on the DMG. You can burn any DMG with any contents with whatever burning software you like.

Untrue. In MacOS 9, the disk copy makes a .img file, while OS X makes a .dmg file. OS X can read both IMG and DMG, but 9 cannot read DMG, which is a drag for my fellow os 9 users. Not to mention theres always the .toast format.
