Sadly I know only MagicISO and PowerISO what would do the job. Try MagicISO trial.

thanks, that helps. – Deniz Zoeteman Jun 9 '10 at 15:30
magiciso says that the file does not exist or that it cant open. PowerISO fails the task at 50%. – Deniz Zoeteman Jun 10 '10 at 13:37
it's a 7.5GB DMG, so it's DVD+R DL. (Verbatim) – Deniz Zoeteman Jun 10 '10 at 13:38
Hmm try extracting it first and then pack it into an ISO. Or simply convert them, do not write them directly. – Shiki Jun 10 '10 at 13:39
@TutorialPoint: If it fails the task at 50%, it's probably having trouble switching layers -- i.e. a DVD problem. You might want to get the brand called Verbatim; I've seen other brands that sometimes don't work in some drives but that work in others. – Mehrdad May 3 '11 at 6:10

I have used Anyiso, transmac, macdrive and they ALL work well. Power iso works as well.

While it isn't explicitly listed as a supported filetype, you could try imgburn — it supports many different file types, and could potentially do a DMG.

"unvalid or unsupported image file format!" – Deniz Zoeteman Jun 10 '10 at 13:40
Darn. I'm sorry. – nhinkle Jun 10 '10 at 16:25
