ExtensionSmallImg What is .dmg file?

The DMG file extension is used by the mountable disk image created in Mac OS X. These files contain raw block data typically compressed and sometimes encrypted and is commonly used for Mac OS software installers that are downloaded from the Internet. When opened, it mounts a virtual disk on the desktop. The DMG format replaces the previous version, .IMG file format used in Mac OS Classic. The DMG images can be opened with the Apple Disk Utility that is bundled with Mac OS X. Important: The DMG files are specifically created for Mac and are not envisioned for use in Mac. However, Mac Daemon Tools may be able to mount virtual drives from some DMG image files. Some other utilities might be able to convert DMG files to a format recognized by Mac.
