Burning a .dmg format file

  1. Hi everyone,
    This may not come out as clear as I want but it's four in the morning and I'm a tad frustrated so please be lenient.

    Here's the dealio. I need to burn a .dmg file onto a dual layer DVD-Rom using my Windows 7 system. Now, I do in fact realize the .dmg file is a Macintosh format but I have no other way to do this. Is it possible to burn a .dmg file using Win7 that would work on an OSX system? I usually use Nero 9 Lite but I have yet to try it. I want to be absolutely certain before I waste my time, effort, and money (on the DVD-R DL, which are fairly expensive) before I do in fact try this.

    Thank you,
    Ezekiel



    P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to all whom are celebrating today.

    the .DMG is a means to MOUNT an image, which normally is not required.

    put the software/files on the CD or DVD and then insert to the mac.

    Most of the time, an 'installer' is not necessary at all.

    Care to tell us more details so we can make better comments?
