DMG2IMG Article

Just so happens that I needed to convert a .dmg to .iso file for use with VMware when I saw this article in my e-mail from How-To-Geek. Unfortunately it does not work so well. Can't find any other help so here goes; I do not have an issue executing the program, even creates a tiny .iso in my folder but with errors. The file is OSX 3.6GB, I shortened the file name and removed spaces, even moved it to the root folder to make it easier but I always receive the (opening partition 2 ... ERROR: Inflation failed)... The first 2 processes complete with 100% ok. Any ideas..?

I don't understand the point. Is the software in the DMG file not OSX specific?

The DMG file could be corrupted, and that's why it isn't extracting.
