I love this app! It saves me minutes everytime I need to make an internet enabled DMG before I upload it. Kudos to the developer :)

Why do you ever "need to make an internet-enabled dmg"?

To understand what a "Internet Enabled Disk Image" is, read (as another poster mentioned) this Apple doc:

Personally, I don't care for images with this feature turned on: images are silently mounted, their contents copied to the location of the image and then the image file itself is moved to the trash. I find this makes the process less transparent, and (for me) more confusing.

It's also a security issue, since it allows people to drop trojanned files on your desktop just by following a link in email or in Safari with "open safe files" turned on.

Apple REALLY needs to reconsider having this functionality at all. It's not as daft as Microsoft's ActiveX, but that's damned faint praise.

Well its about time someone thought of an app like this!

Now I won't receive any more emails from friends saying 'sorry-didn't receive your file'.

This program should have no effect on whether anyone has problems with a DMG you send as an email attachment. It simply automates (and hides) the process of: mount, open, copy contents, unmount, move image to trash.

What's an "internet-enabled" disk image? I thought the binary DMG files could be mailed, FTPed, or downloaded without any mods?

Reading the Apple documentation, "Internet Enabled" DMG files have nothing to do with their transportability over the Internet. "Because read-only .dmg files use a flat file format and Disk Copy can create compressed disk images, it is unnecessary to convert a .dmg file to either StuffIt format or MacBinary format."
