how to open .dmg files on mac os 9
« on: March 19, 2014, 04:34:43 AM »
according to this document:

Currently, the only way to open a .dmg disk image in Mac OS 9 is to use either the developer version of Disk Copy (version 6.4), or a beta version of the unreleased 6.5. However, both versions can only open uncompressed images; compressed Disk Images are unusable on Mac OS 9

perhaps one of us could find this version of disk copy?
mine is only version 4.2! and has no option to create .smi in any of the windows...
im guessing another later version would have this feature!

including a "Clone" function..

in "about" it says copyright 1998-2002
this was definately the work that ended up being a large part of "diskUtility" in mac os x!!

I managed to open some dmg files using Toast. Not all of them, but a few. Your solution is pretty interesting. I'll give it a go when i get home.
