    im downloading the dmg files (mac dvd player and vlc, because somebody deleted my dvd app and i dont have the original disks) with a windows pc which is apparently fine (ive try to transfer with both memory stick and cdr) , and ive used disk utility to repair the hd and to repair permissions and still nothing!
    any advice will be appreciated, cheers!

    Sometimes the file won't completely download and it will appear as a complete .dmg but actually won't be. Try re-downloading the file to make sure you have the complete file. If it is incomplete it will fail to open the .dmg.

    Ive now got dmg files to mount, they were somehow becoming corrupt when burnt to cd....however!!!!
    everything i install on to the mac doesnt work, installation has been followed correctly and they are present and correct in the apps folder but they just ****ing bounce up and down when i try to open them or when a program trys to launch them, any idea :( ?
