Force-mount unmountable disk images
Authored by: neier on Sep 15, '04 07:27:03PM
I have an image that is password protected, and it still doesn't mount with this hint. Here's the output from terminal.

Initializing...
Attaching...
DI_kextDriveGetRequest: failed (0x00000025)
Finishing...
hdiutil: attach failed - no mountable file systems
Since the GUI password box came up on the display, I suspect that whatever OSX bug the command line evades is non-evaded when the PW function is called. Another encrypted image that mounts ok in the standard way (double-click) mounts fine using hdiutil. Haven't tried rebooting to see if that lets me mount the first image.
