You mean .dmg files?

There are some tools that can read .dmg files:

TransMac

or

MacDrive (with this app you can also read Mac Drives (HDDs), etc.

both programs are Win7 compatible

If you want to burn the contents of the .dmg directly to a usb-stick that is no tool for windows that will do that. You will have to mount the USB-Stick on a Mac and use the "Restore" option of "Disk Utility" to restore .dmg to the USB-Stick.

If you don't have access to a Mac, you can allways try to install Mac OSX in VMWare under Windows and do everything there.

Check the tutorial below for it. It will take you max. 20 minutes ot install Mac OSX in VMWare

As far as I know ISOBuster is only able to extract the files from .dmg, but if I understood well he wants to restore the image to a usb-stick "as it is" and that is not possible under windows.

If it's in a .dmg file, then just copy the file(s) over to the usb drive, or you can use a mac and install to that usb stick. Sometimes it depends on who developed it, but I have often just copied the files to a portable drive or stick, and then use it where it's needed.

Good Luck

If you are using a Mac - go into Disk Utilities, have your image ready and insert your usb stick. highlight your usb stick in the list to the left side of the window, click the Restore tab option, select your image source and list your destination drive as the usb stick and then click restore.

I haven't used MacDrive for a while, and so I'm not sure what options there may be with that program. Sorry I'm not much help, but if you listed exactly what you are doing, what platform your using and what the image is, perhaps it would narrow down the many options to do things.

He doesnt have a Mac, he wants to use Windows. That is the problem.

He only has the options already posted above

If you use Transmac - open it and select with a "RIGHT CLICK" the USB Stick.
Then Select 'Format Disk' > "Format with Disk Image" ALL DONE.

:-)

Common Sense.... A Shame it's not too common these days.
