    So the solution in that thread didn't work for you? Or did you not even try it?

    thers no solution because in ur link he knows which update he did..i did all of them no idea which 1..i cant download any update now..

    i looked in ur link angel:"Once you download it, you are going to need a program like toast to mount the disk image, since the apple diskimagemounter doesent work (yet).

    After mounting it using toast (or the program of your choice), just follow the instructions and install it. Afterwards your computer will need to restart, and now your disk image mounter should work :)

    the problem i dont think i have other program and i can download toast but cant open it:(

    angel the other link with the disc utility is better but i still cant figure it gives me error with the communication to the manager..:apple:
    im trying to close it but icant i have to restart my comp now:mad:
    this mac is so frustrating u r so my old pc i would have fixed it long time ago...i think i prefer pc with viruses to the "CLEAN" Mac..

    To further the troubleshooting; Open Console (/Applications/Utilities/Console) then try to open one of these DMG files that you downloaded. Switch back to Console and copy the last few messages. They are timestamped so only worry about messages that have arrived in the past few seconds. Paste them into a post here, and make sure to use the code formatting button (it has a # on it) that way it'll be a little easier for us to read. We might be able to see some clues there that can clear this up. Not too many people are still running Tiger so it makes it harder to help out.

    When you're typing your post there's a toolbar at the top with various icons. The one with a # on it is for posting code so that what you posted can look like this,
    May  8 09:01:42 Jacks-Laptop crashdump[244]: diskimages-helper crashed
    May  8 09:01:42 Jacks-Laptop crashdump[244]: crash report written to: /Users/josephmarr/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/diskimages-helper.crash.log
    That last line there mentions a crash log and shows you exactly where it's at. Can you grab the contents and post them? Again, like before we'll only need to more recent entries, hopefully the log is timestamped.

    Here's another forum that has some potential solutions.

    I'll try to give the potential solution steps here to make them a touch more readable.

    1. In Finder go to ~/Library/Preferences (~ means your home folder / your username)
    2. Delete files that start with
    3. Do the same in the folder ~/Library/Caches
    Delete the following files and folder
    • /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache (a file)
    • /System/Library/Extensions.mkext (a file)
    • /System/Library/Caches/ (a folder)
    You'll possibly have to enter your username and password to delete these.

    Next, open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and enter in the following command followed by enter, sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
    This will ask for your password, just type it in and hit enter.
    Restart your computer.


    If this doesn't work here's another solution given on that page:
    1. Download 10.4.9 Combo Update (PPC or Intel) from Apple (I believe you have PPC rather than Intel)
    2. Reboot using original Mac OS X Install Disc, hold the C-key to boot from CD/DVD
    3. After selecting language and other options, open a Terminal window from the Utilities menu
    4. Manually mount the 10.4.9 Combo Update disk image using hdiutil attach ~/Downloads/MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.9Intel.dmg -Make sure the path to the file is right and that it's pointing to correct name from what you downloaded earlier in step 1.
    5. Copy the contents of the disk image to hard drive: cp -R /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ 10.4.9 \Combined\ Update (Intel) /Volumes/MacBook/Users/username/Desktop -Again, you'll need to change this to meet the naming conventions you have on files and your username.
    6. Reboot into OS X normally
    7. Reinstall the 10.4.9 Update from the extracted folder, which should be on your Desktop now
    8. Reboot again
    If you have trouble with any of these instructions I'll try to help. I don't have Tiger so can't check on certain things here.
