    I'm trying to scan an image for restore, its a .iso file but Disk Utility is being a pain. It says invalid argument when i try and scan it. I've scanned and restored this image a load of times before, but not this time. I have a .dmg which restores without a problem...

    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance,

    Have you tried to fix Disk Permissions? Sometimes it helps on weird system behavior.
    Disk Utility -> Choose Startup Disk -> Click Repair Disk Permissions

    I just tried that with no luck... I also tried converting it but still no luck.. I'm wondering what's going on now.

    EDIT: Now the old one isnt scanning i'm getting operation timed out and cant allocate memory and invalid argument all sorts of weird stuff!

    EDIT2: Disk Utility decided to corrupt my old image now! Arrrgh! But the good news is the .iso is now restoring without needing to be scanned... What the? lol
