Apart from that you are now able to Burn.dmg files in Windows. Note- Transmac is a paid software, so for full access you have to buy it. I have bought it around $50 and still using it, without any problem.
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!
