Fix error 0xe00002c9 when mounting disk images System
Recently I re-intalled Tiger from scratch on my old iBook G3. I let Apple's Software Update download all the relevant updates, and after the necessary restarts, I tried to mount a disk image. To my surprise, both the Finder and the Disk utility came up with an error (0xe00002c9) and refused to mount the disk image. I tried other disk images with the same result.

After some googling and searching in the Apple support forums, I came up with the following remedy: you need to manually download and install the latest Security Update (009 as of this writing) and then restart (naturally). I can only guess that this is an issue of a corrupt download from Software Update, since this security update was already installed automatically.

[robg adds: You can find the Security Update on Apple's Support Downloads page. This doesn't seem to be a universal problem (or else there would have been a major uproar about it), but there are quite a few matches to a Google query on the error code -- so hopefully this fix helps someone else out of a jam.]

i recently installed leopard and all relevant updates via 'software update' on a g5. i had a few glitches - so checked for further updates with 'software update' and was surprised to see 'security 009' was needed. after installing all glitches appear to have been sorted.

cheers, earthling

Thank you! The only problem is that when I download the security update it in itself is a disk image! Any help would be appreciated.(I already tried to install the security update using system updater but it was not listed as an option to install)

I too had an issue with what to do with the Security update after I downloaded it. Well here was my fix. With full references back to this post. Tks LPM this was a life saver at the time.
