    i just recently got a macbook whilst my macbook pro is getting fixed in the hope that can get some work done during the time my mbp is away.


    i have a exhd full of applications that i have downloaded over the past few years.

    on my new macbook its running snow leopard but my old mbp it was running leopard.

    so i check out my external hd and its seems that all my dmg files are now unix exec.


    i did some digging and still couldnt come across a simple step by step procedure in how to make them run

    now i realise this has been asked alot and the common answer is to use the terminal to change the name of the file but i cant for the life of me figure out how to do that.

    so can anyone explain how i would chang them back to dmg files in the simplest way :D

    Are you really sure that the former .dmg files now have another suffix?
    If so, what is the suffix exactly?

    Have you tried Finder to rename them?

    Can you re-download some of those programs?
