I’m trying to open an dmg file in my Mac but it shows “No mountable file system” error. At first, i thought the file is corrupted during the transfer so i re download the file again. However, it still shows “No mountable file system” error when i open the dmg file.
After some research, i found a small command will solve the problem.
Mac open dmg file: No mountable file system
- Backup your dmg file
- Open your terminal
- Enter this command:-
hdiutil convert /path/to/yourfile.dmg -format UDRW -o newfilename.dmg
- Once you execute the command, sit back and wait till the process finish. (It might need to take some time if your file is very large in size)
- Once the process finish, double click on your newfilename.dmg file and you will be able to open the file
