Just double-click on the .iso file. It will mount as a DVD on the Desktop. If you have an a legal .iso copy of a movie DVD, then the MacOS X DVD Player will play it just like a set top deck.I've been searching on macbook air to see if they have a virtual dvd drive. because i have my entire dvd collection on my PC in an iso file and i'm contemplating getting a macbook air, but i would like to play my movies on my mac if i get one. can anyone help me?
Sometimes, but almost never. The most effective remedy is to redownload the .dmg. In my personal experience, redownloading sometimes works but it is a guarantee by no means. Often as not, the .dmg is corrupt as posted on its server. This means that it may not be possible to get a good copy until an updated version is posted.... Try restarting your MBAir, and try the image again. Sometimes that's all that is needed.
Based on some research I did, You can do this in the Terminal with this command:
hdiutil convert /folder/folder/file.iso -format UDRW -o /folder/folder/file.dmg
Make sure to replace /folder/folder/file.iso with the full filepath of the .iso file. To ensure correct filepath, simply drag the iso file into the terminal window at the point where you'd normally type the filepath.
NOTE: I haven't tested this yet. Make a copy of your .iso file before you use this command, just in case.
http://www.poweriso.com/tutorials/convert-dmg-to-iso.htm I am using PowerIsoHow to convert ISO files to DMG files. It is easy to convert DMG to ISO, but I can't fing ISO to DMG.
Thank you in advance for your help.
PowerISO is a windows app, so unless you have Windows installed on your Mac, that solution is not particularly relevant, eh?http://www.poweriso.com/tutorials/convert-dmg-to-iso.htm I am using PowerIso
