At what point in the above process do things go wrong? Is there any error message that appears?
No error messages. I wish there was.

I down load a program. I get the disk image icon. I click that icon then get the little white icon that looks like a drive. I click that then I have a disk connected to my computer, but it doesnt install the program. To finish using the program I have to close it and then eject it from my computer. After I do that, to use the program again, I have to click the down loaded disk image icon then go through the whole process again.

I used to be able to down load, click the disk image, it would install to my applications folder or wherever, then I could delete the original, first down loaded disk image file.

I wish I could explain it better.

Basically whats going on is that it wont install. I always need to use this disk image. Ive never had to do that before. It used to down load. Id click on the .dmg file. It would then install and I could trash that file because the program from that .dmg file would install.
