A DMG file is a Mac OS X-based mountable disk image that contains compressed raw block data used for Mac OS software typically downloaded from the Web. When opened on a Mac, the DMG file mounts as a virtual disc drive, using Apple Disk Utility. DMG files are intended for Macintosh computers only, but, using special software, it is possible to mount a DMG on Windows as if it was a DVD.
