I have an old mac that I am updating. I have some dmg files on a PC, problem is that I don't have a burner on my mac. How do i burn these dmg files on my pc so that the mac will read it as though they are the actually disk?

There are a few programs that can convert DMG to ISO so that you can burn them in any burning program on the PC. One of them is UltraISO if I remember correctly.

I don't believe any Windows utilities can handle a compressed .dmg file. Unfortunately for you 99% of all .dmg files are.

I haven't done it too much, but I've definitely converted some before with UltraISO. Well it's worth a shot at least.

It would be nice if it fully supports .dmg files. So far I haven't had much luck. :/

I tried that last night - Magic ISO can handle .dmg files, and then I converted it to an iso following their online help - problem was after I inserted the cd into the my mac it saw the cd as a cd-rw with the files on there. The instructions said it would auto run the installer but no go.
