    Possibly they are bad dmgs, or were corrupted on downloading. try downloading again. Also, posting links to the dmgs may help.

    Unrecognised DMG

    Hey there. I am not very technically savvy but have a brand new 2.4Ghz IMAC with Leopard. I have downloaded a DMG which is over 1GB from a torrent site. I have tried to open it and am getting an "unrecognised" message. I have burnt this file to a DVD and hope to try opening it on another mac soon. Has anyone found any ways i may be able to open/fix this file? it could take me a few more weeks to get hold of a new DMG as my download speed is very slow - and yet it may be damaged too! Thanks :eek:
