I have an MRI CD of my back which I can't open on my Macmini running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. The read me instructions say it will work on MS XP. So is there a way to get it to work on my Mac or do I have to send the file to my netbook which runs XP? Or maybe I should just buy a stand alone CD player for my netbook because there have been times I really could have used a CD player.

??? What file type is on the CD? Is it pictures, a video file, an application? If video, you might try VLC.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

They are images, probably .jpg.

They might be JPGs, but these CDs usually have an application that runs to show you those images. If you can browse around on the CD and find the exact location of the JPGs or other image files, then you can load those in Preview..

I tried downloaded the viewer with no luck. I can't any .jpg files on the cd. There are IM000001, IM000002, etc. It looks they are Unix executable files.

My wife has a few of these CDs and they are not executable file, but rather binary files that are displayed by the various applications. It MIGHT be possible that they are BMP files, so you can try copying one of these IM000xx files to your Desktop and add (or replace) the extension to .bmp and see if that loads.

Otherwise, you'll have to use the application to load the images and that would require a Windows machine or VM..

This is an old thread that just got revived (edit: by a spammer, now gone, I see), but it happens to be a subject I actually know something about. Assuming the CD was made using DICOM standards, then any software that can read DICOM media will work. Here's a free open-source DICOM viewer:
OsiriX for Mac | MacUpdate

Virtually everyone makes these discs in a DICOM-compatible format, but it's possible to run across one that uses a proprietary format that can only be read by the included software. If that's the case (again, unlikely these days), then you are out of luck.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
