FYI - the download link for this is 404. but you can find it at

http://f.luo.ma/flashmount-1.5.2.dmg (my personal mirror).

It's very handy, and seems to work fine under 10.7.4.

FlashMount is great, but when DMG's are downloaded from Safari FlashMount doesn't not automount the DMG. It would be great if FM were updated to work around this issue.

Works perfectly for 95% of disk images and is so much more convenient than Apple's built in utility. The only time I have issue is when I use password protected DMG files. Flashmount just launches and doesn't display any errors or information, yet won't mount the image.

I run a blog about Mac freeware (http://freewaremac.net) and this utility is like heaven to me. I just love it and it's my default app for DMGs since ver 1.5.

Very nice program. It really does make a difference when you download DMGs all the time to have Flash Mount do the work.

I've been using this for several days now, it speeds my workflow (I have to open a *lot* of .dmgs every day here at MacUpdate, many have those pesky EULAs), never had any issues with it. I know about the other similar utils and have used them too, but I like this one best.

Yes, it works and it's very fast... but...

It's calling a script that calls hdid that calls hdiutil that uses the DI framework to mount the image...

It would be even faster if all this was reduced to 1 step :)

So, contact the developer and tell her/him/them that.

Just upgraded to the latest version and FlashMount no longer mounts any disk images!
What's wrong?

Take a look at a couple posts down. Just re-download and you should be fine.

Well, I'm still confused as to how I am supposed to use this in the backround (so it does not appear in my dock). I read the the 'Read Me' but I don't understand how to open .plists


But other than a little more specification in your 'Read Me', thumbs up.

I'm surprised there's no comments about it already, but there was a small bug that popped up due to a problem with XCode, that prevented FlashMount from opening double-clicked files. I uploaded the fixed version, so anyone with any troubles, just re-download and you'll be fine.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

For some reason unknown, Apple's disc image mounter no longer wanted to mount .dmg files automatically. Tried FlashMount. Viola! Very nice product
