Question: Im pretty good on computers but My sister started school and she has a file called Resource Cur1-1.dmg. I followed the directions on your page and can now see the file type in Windows Vista, but still cannot get it to work. Help me open this or tell me how to get around it. She has Office XP does she need to upgrade to 2008?

Answer: Sorry but you are probably going to need a mac to open a .dmg file. A DMG file is similar to a .ISO file on a PC. Its basically and image (not a photo). Images are exact copies of cd content, its a great way to store cd content really.
If you really want the file and want to convert it to and .iso then burn that .iso to cd with an application like nero then try googling dmg2img. The first result is probably the one you want.
Its a nice utility to have on hand. Thanks for the question by the way!
Before you try anything you should think about doing a free scan for .dmg related registry errors. This will ensure your computer is ready to precede.
