Re: .dmg files to .iso

is that dmg-file maybe a disk image for Mas OS? in that case simply burn in as a file onto iso9660/rock ridge and mount it using DiskCopy on you Mac.  big_smile

Re: .dmg files to .iso

I do not own a mac. i run 100% linux on all my stuff.

Also how do you burn a .mdf .mds in linux or convert it to a .iso?

Re: .dmg files to .iso

I think you can just mount it.

Apparently there is an HFS+ file system driver for linux, and .dmg files are just HFS+ packet files if I recall correctly. You should be able to mount them using an HFS+ driver.

problem here is that there is a lot of information whithin a HFS/HFS+ fs that is not supported by Linux's module. for example, if you write an executable to that fs you will run into problems actually running it on a Mac since a bunch of meta-infos are missing.  roll

well, this is what happens to me w/ Mac OS 9 or lower.
