I have a few videos that are .img and are not getting mounted on my Mac. It says File Not Recognised. The same files always mounted on my Windows 7 using Daemon Tools, but it is not working on the Mac. I even tried changing the File extension to .ISO and .DMG neither seem to work. Would you be kind enough to point me in the right direction.
