Convert .dmg files to .iso files for burning elsewhere

Contrary to what the original poster is saying, there indeed is a small application which you can download from called dmg2iso. extract the file on your pc and run the exe from a cmd promt.. hit win+R, type "cmd" and browse with cd to the dir where you extracted dmg2iso. type "dmg2iso.exe" and follow the syntax.

SO.. if you're on a pc, have a dmg and happen to not have a mac around it is possible to convert the file to an iso and then either open and exctract the file(s) with winrar or burn the iso to a cd/dvd.

To those trying to tell your pc to run a command that lives within a unix tree.. good luck to you. Stand away from the start button.
