I think I am getting an iBook in a couple of weeks, and since i'm on 56k I have downloaded a few big files on my PC. I searched on google to see if I could just burn the files normally and they would work on Mac. But I found that if I open the files in Windows the Data Fork would get damaged or something.
The file was a .sit, and i downloaded StuffIt for windows to see what was in the file. I extracted the .dmg file and put it in a folder which i want to burn to cd.
My first question is, will the .dmg be damaged, or will I still be able to open it on the Mac?
Second, on my google search again it said that executables (i'm assuming .dmg is a Mac executable?) cant just be burned normally, but I could really figure it out from what was said how I do it. Can anyone help?
Thanks a lot!
How To Burn Dmg File On Macbook Pro 2020
I see that your MacBook stopped opening .DMG files after you updated to macOS Sierra. I can imagine it's concerning to have something not work like it did on a previous operating system. I'm happy to help assist you in finding the best resolution.
macOS should read these files and you should be able to open them fine with no issues, so I would suggest doing a fresh restart of your computer to see if that helps.
If you still have an issue after that, try a backup of your Mac's important data and a reinstall of macOS using the following articles:
