    Hello,

    I have 4 large DMG files on my external hard drive. I want to burn them to DVD so that I can install them on my laptop. When I try to install them from the DMG files themselves it keeps stalling and asking to insert disk 2 etc.

    Do I convert them to ISO files first in Toast and burn them to make installation DVDs? I have never done this before so any help is greatly appreciated. thanks!

    Where did you get these DMGs from? We cannot help you with any illegally downloaded software.

    You don't need to combine them first. If their names are something like:
    Blah.dmg
    Blah.2.dmgpart
    Blah.3.dmgpart
    Blah.4.dmgpart

    Then you need only mount Blah.dmg, and they will be presented as a single volume.

    If they look more like this:
    Blah1.dmg
    Blah2.dmg
    Blah3.dmg
    Blah4.dmg

    Then you must mount all 4 images separately.
