    I have a new Sony SR11 HD camcorder and I never realized I could not burn a DVD. Bought the LG GE20 with assurance of its compatibility. This of course did not happen.  If I download the Roxio it will then be able to read the software?? 
    Is it better to just upgrade  CD ROM capacity to the superdrive? Does anyone have experience with the superdrive?d

Is it compatible with OS 9 or OS X? If you have OS X and your disc is for OS 9 it won't work unless you have Classic installed and running. But it doesn't sound like you have Classic because I believe it would have tried to install in there by now on it's own. So when software says it is Mac compatible I always check further to see if it works with OS 9 or OS X.

Just got an lg ge20 not working on mac


I wish I could tell you that your Mac is compatible with the LG GE20 20X DVD Burner but unfortunately it is not.

Here are the system requirements for this burner
LG GE20 20X DVD Burner Technical Specifications

The CD included is not the only item that is not compatible with the Mac, it is also the DVD burner itself. It is only windows compatible I'm afraid.

However, I do know that the Apple.com online store, has a comparable DVD+RW burner, the
LaCie 22x d2 DVD+RW with LightScribe
which will work with your iMac.

This is a genuine incompatibility issue.

If you had an Intel iMac, there actually is a workaround process where virtual machine software, like VMWare Fusion or Parallels, could be installed, with a version of Windows XP, Vista, or 7, display as a 2nd terminal within a Mac OS X desktop.

What's makes this effective, is that the LG GE20 could work with a windows virtual machine and because software like VMWare for example, can share devices, including optical CD/DVD drives, the Mac could share that drive with the windows virtual machine.

But since you do not have an Intel iMac, unless I am reading the description of your Mac computer(Apple iMAC Mac Notebook) incorrectly, the LaCie burner information, I provided above, would be the best option for your model of iMac.

Again, if I have described your model of Mac incorrectly let me know and I will be glad to assist further.

Regards,

-Mactechtrainer

The DMG file type is primarily associated with 'Macintosh OS X' by Apple Inc.. On the Macintosh, these files are treated like a real disk. They can be created with Disk Copy, burnt to CD or mounted as a normal volume. The DMG file also comes in different formats: HFS, HFS+, UFS, ProDOS, Linux, and Fat32 and so may also require special mounting software to account for the format. IsoBuster can interpret these files directly as can other programs such as UltraISO. The program TransMac, by Acute Systems, can both open and create DMG files on a PC.

what type of file is it that you are trying to open, sometimes you will see gobbledegook if your computer doesn't have the right program to handle a PC word processing and your mac doesn't have Microsoft Office installed. It also could happen with other type of file such as an image, video etc.



Open office can open a number of word documents:

Gimp for macintosh opens a lot of image files:
http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

also if you know what type of file it is, try adding an extension to it by placing a dot then follow it by typing the filetype. For a word document type in .doc for instance

Flashing question mark at start up


The bootup permissions file has become corrupted in your system folder. Booting up and running an"archive and install" from the installation cd, or better, from an external hardrive, should solve the problem.
