Mac open dmg file No mountable file system error

advertisement

mac, appleI’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

    Unfortunately, this did not work. This process made a copy of the original .dmg that doesn’t open, but the copy exhibits the same exact issue, i.e. No mountable file system error. :(

    Hi there,

    Does this process create a copy of the .dmg or simply change the format of the existing file?
