MacBook Pro :: Downloaded DMG Files Don't Open
I have had some trouble lately when downloading DMG files with Safari. In the URL bar I could see it was downloading and then downloaded however nothing happend. Changed to open with DiskUtility didn't do anything. Firewall had no influence. When downloaded with Firefox there was NO problem and everything went fine like it use to do with Safari. So I suspect it is a bug in Safari since this happens with all DMG files of late.

IMac Intel :: OSX Can't Open Dmg And Avi Files
The problem is some .DMG files and .AVI files are not able to be opened, which have previously been fine. Where as some where fine, and still are. The problem files have white icons and are grey'ed out. They cannot be renamed, deleted and moved. These files have previously been fine, I downloaded them, installed or watched them, then stored them on my portable hard drive. They have just suddenly became un-usable.

OS X Tiger :: Unable To Open .dmg Files
I have a Mac OS X 10.4.11 and I was having trouble opening .dmg and .pkg files because Stuffit would open them automatically so I deleted Stuffit because I couldn't figure out how to change it. I am currently trying to download and install Microsoft Silverlight and it opens it to an ejected disk but when I try to click it to install it it's saying "there is no default application specified to open the document" I can either cancel or choose application... when I try to choose application I am unable to choose itself.

PowerPC :: Cannot Open / Unmount DMG Files
A few months ago my cdrom started not wishing to eject my cd stating it's in use (when it isn't). It shows up on my desktop fine, but won't eject. I have to restart and hold down the trackpad button for it to release the cd. That was all fine and dandy and though annoying I can deal with it...however... My computer is not allowing me to open up .dmg files. I have stuffit...I have the standard diskmount that is default in mac computers but when I tried to download firefox and another program they put a .dmg file on my computer but neither will open up and unmount! So why would a download not unmount...nothing for a .dmg is unmounting on my computer. I tried opening stuffit and it appears like it'll open but doesn't...stays in finder just like when I try to unmount the files. Now that I have the .dmg on my computer I want to delete them because if I can't unmount them they're of no use to me. However, my trash won't let me saying they're in use.

Software :: Cannot Open DMG Files - Disk Image Failed To Mount
I'm using a 2GHz PowerPC G5, OS X 10.4.11, with 1 GB on one dimm. I cannot open ANY .dmg files. I have tried clicking the image, and also on a clean download used "open with" each time I received the following message The following disk image failed to mount
Reason: Device not configured

I have followed the instructions in this thread:- Disk image failed to mount: Device not configured.
Firstly Run /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.
Click on "Macintosh HD" in the left column and then press the "Repair Disk Permissions" button.
Delete the file called /System/Library/Extension.kextcache
Delete the folder called /System/Library/Caches/

That made no difference. I then tried bobw's advice here Panther - Disk Image "mounting Failed" Panther - Disk Image "mounting Failed". That made no difference. I have since gone on to and the advice I received was to do an archive and install and then a full combo update.

Snow Leopard :: Macbook Pro Can't Download DMG Files
My macbook pro running OSX 10.6.4 can't download DMG format files. I can download everything else fine, but the DMG's just time out in FF and in Safari, the page just refreshes.If you have any ideas on how or why this is happening and how to fix it I would greatly appreciate it, as it is extremely frustrating. I would rather not completely wipe the system, but if it comes to that...

Mac Safari :: .dmg's Files Won't Download On Any Browser
.dmg files wont download on any browser I try to download from. This includes Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. When it happens, the page just goes back to the previous page where the link was. In Firefox, in some cases I can right click and select "Save Link As" but this doesn't work on some forms where the link is generated by Javascript.

Software :: Can't Download .dmg Files
^^That's my problem, tried different browsers and different users (note: both were admins), nothing works.
As an example:

I got to -> [URL]

Then click on Download iArchiver, the browser screen goes white (not everything, just the 'display' side of it), and it keeps loading and loading with the [URL]

It also sometimes makes a difference if I 'Block pop-up windows' or not, if I don't, the already described happens, otherwise it simply goes back to the window where I clicked on 'download' (note: this has happened so far only while trying to download firefox and blocking pop-up windows)

MacBook Pro :: Open / Mount Compressed Dmg File
I recently sold my MacBook Pro, but before doing so I made a compressed image of the hard drive via Disk Utility so I would have access to the files once the laptop was gone. The file was roughly 460GB compressed. The file has been stored on my Drobo.Now I'm trying to mount the image so I can move things over to my new computer but I'm having trouble getting the image to mount, convert or anything. Typically I get a message to the effect of "no mountable filesystem found".

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Won't Mount DMG Files Unless In Safe Mode
If I try to mount almost any DMG file I just get an error message saying that there is no mountable file system. I know that these are not corrupt dmg files because these are ones that I have mounted before, it affects almost every single one and more importantly if I reboot in Safe Mode every single one mounts perfectly. 

Clearly then something is running in normal mode that is preventing dmg's from mounting but I don't know how to find out what. I went to System Properties>User & Groups>Login Items and removed everything that was there but that was just iTunes Helper and something called WDC something or other which was unchecked anyway and is just a utility that controls my external hard drives. With everything removed and rebooted still DMG files won't mount. 

Safe Mode = DMG's mount

Normal Mode = DMG's won't mount. 

how I can find out what is causing this problem and/or how to fix it as it's annoying as **** and preventing me from easily updating software.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Brand New Macbook Air Won't Open Or Save Pdf's
Files display pdf icon  but it says it won't open "because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged and may be corrupted" etc. I then installed adobe reader and still get same issue, I've downloaded several pdf's from different sources (old macbook and web, stored files I know are not damaged) I'm running mac osx 10.7.3 my java is SE 6 64/32 version 1.6.0._31-b04-415 if that makes any difference (read java could be a factor) pdf's will open from the web in safari but won't save like normal "save as" menu would, it says  "The document “Test_File.pdf” could not be exported as “Test_File.pdf”."

MacBook Pro :: Downloading DMG Files Directly From Browser (Safari And FF)
When trying to download .dmg files through my browser (for example- when downloading the trial version of iWork on, or when trying to download the app from this site: ), my screen will usually say "thank you for downloading" or "your download will start momentarily," but the download doesn't start. I have this problem with both Safari and Firefox. Are any of you guys out there experiencing a similar problem? If so, have you been able to fix it?

Applications :: Can't Open Numbers Doc From Mobile Me On MacBook Air?
Got a weird problem. I store alot of documents on my iDisk so I can access them on either my MacBook Air or my iMac. It has worked great for several years.

I'm using Numbers '08 on both computers and both computers are completely updated.

Several weeks ago, the MacBook Air quit allowing me to open a Numbers document stored on Mobile Me. When I try to open a Numbers doc, I get a message saying, "The document could not be opened."

However, all is fine on my iMac. All numbers documents will open as normal from Mobile Me.

Also, other types of documents will open fine on the MacBook Air from Mobile Me i.e. Preview, Pages.

I tried copying a Numbers doc from Mobile Me to the Air, but I get an error stating, "The operation can be completed because and unexpected error occurred(error code -8084)."

Also, If I'm not dealing with Mobile Me, Numbers seems to work fine on the Air. I can create documents and open them fine.

In desperation, I did a clean install on the Air, but to no avail. I still have the same problem.

I can't think of anything I did to the Air to make it suddenly quit opening docs from Mobile Me.

MacBook Air :: PDF On Desktop Won't Open Or Go Into Trash
An icon appeared on my wife's Macbook Air desktop and she has no idea where it came from, what it is or how to get rid of it. It has a red and white "pdf" icon with the title Acr790289319801612880.tmp. Nothing happens when it's double clicked, or if she tries to open it under "File" then "Open." I changed the extension to .pdf and tried to open it, but no dice. If she drags it into the trash it makes the sound effect of dropping into the can but remains on the desktop and doesn't show up in the trash.How to get rid of it?
