OS X 10.6.8 - download a program (like OpenOffice or some such); .dmg appears on my desktop; click it to execute the tile; error message telling me nothing whatsoever about how to find the solution (typical!) shows up:

The following disk images couldn't be opened.
(for example: [title].dmg is not recognized)

What's going on (or, more to the point, not going on)? Any assistance gratefully accepted.

More often than not - it's a bad download.
Try again.

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.
