    Thumb Drive trouble.
    I have a Macbook Pro 17, core Duo, running Snow Leopard, 2.4GHz with 4gig ram. Machine works perfect except for one thing. If I plug a thumb drive in the USB port that has "dmg" files it won't recognize it. I can plug a thumb drive in with just files and such and the icon pops up in the right corner and displays the name of the drive. If I plug a drive in with "dmg" files on it, no icon, no name of drive, not recognized.

    I can plug the drive into my Linux and view all the "dmg" files but not on the Macbook. I tried switching USB port also but same result. Not sure what is wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
