    Error message when running .dmg
    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.
