I ditched the payware DropDMG for the utterly awesome DMGConverter. Before switching I checked out several other DMGConverter competitors but none of them matched it's feature set, GUI/ease of use, or generally cool vibe. Even better, several weeks of use has proven DMGConverter's stability to be superior to that of DropDMG. It's a rare freeware application that motivates me to donate - DMGConverter is one of those applications.

It would probably need some update for recent OSes, but it still works in OS 10.9.5 — and probably in Sierra, as mentioned in an earlier comment. There's absolutely no equivalent, except for the command line, so...

I really do like this program. But there are a couple of minor enhancements that would make it much better. We often convert a bunch of dmg files into the bzip2 compressed format in order to save space. But every once in a while, it throws up a dialog box saying that the results are larger than the original, and which do we want to use. It would be nice to be able to have it automatically keep the smaller of the two. Also, it would be nice to have it automatically do a scan for restore on any dmg for which that can be done, and for which it hasn't been done. But a great program otherwise

Doesn't work in Mountain Lion. Unfortuantely, I use this tool all the time to make disk images from folders, and to convert traditional (zlib) compressed disk images into highly compressed (bzip2) disk images.

Easily the easiest method for making your own DMG documents. Although it can be used with document which span several disks, I found it best suited for single and double-layer DVDs. Oh, and its free!

This is a very good piece of freeware and it merits the maximum rating in many categories. If you have any need to make, create or change DMG disk images, you need to check out this tool. While most of what it does could be done from Apple supplied command line and GUI utilities, this is my preferred tool for its intended functions. It is far easier and quicker for me to drag and drop a bunch of files onto DMG converter, then it is to accomplish the same goal via the other tools. My most common use for DMG Converter is to convert existing disk images to the bzip2 format. The bzip2 format typically results in smaller file sizes. The only improvements that I can think of for this software, would be if I could set what the default behavior should be in the unusual instances when the converted image is larger than the original. There is a preference for asking me. But I'd rather that the smallest file were the one kept, whether that is the original or the converted. It would also be nice to be able to drop a whole folder or drive with DMG images in subdirectories and have it traverse the directory structure and reconvert them.

Hi, Starting two days when I'm trying to create a dmg from a folder under my documents folder/subfolder or to convert an dmg from a file within my subfolders I have each time an error saying "error ID 2: no such file or directory". now It only work if source folder or dmg file (for creation or convertion) is on the desktop. It never happens before with old version. Thanks for this great utility. I'm on MacOSX 10.5.8.

Awesome free software. I was using DropDMG but DMGConverter is better for converting multiple images; I can drop dozens of DMG images on and it effortlessly converts them serially without choking like DropDMG does. A few suggestions: 1. DMGConverter will only create new images from folders - I'd like to be able to drop a file or group of files on it to create an image. DropDMG can do this, so it's definitely possible. 2. When an image, file, or folder is dropped on it, DMGConverter should be able to figure out what to do. Currently I must switch to the "Convert" tab if I want to convert a disk image, or switch to the "new image" tab if I want a new image, adding extra steps to what should be a one step process. If I drop a folder is dropped on DMGConverter, then obviously I don't want to convert a disk image, likewise if an image is dropped on it, then usually I don't to make an image of an image. Make DMGConverter smart enough so I don't have switch modes all the time. Otherwise, this is a great freeware app.

When trying to mount the DMGConverter 5.0.2.dmg on my eMac, running Mac OS X 10.4.11, the following msg appeared: "The disk image you are opening may be damaged and could damage your system. Are you sure you want to open this disk image?" I went ahead mounting the disk image and installed the app which now works properly.

TOMDOHERTY & BIDULE, the developer seems to have fixed your reported problem within one day! I'm curious if the new version does in fact work on 10.4.x because I have some 10.4 machines at work that I'd like to put this app on. Does 5.0.1 now work for you?

To the developer, this is almost perfect. I would like an option to create a read/write UDF so I can add or remove items to an existing DVD disk image project. Similar to a packet writing function, something that we used to be able to do in OS9 with DirectCD.

Thank you for excellent freeware! Now I can create from any given folder via shortcut (Quicksilver) a crossplattform iso image with all data intact (even creation date, which gets lost, if you use disc utility and dmg!) And thanks to your tool even multiple images at a time! Thanks again! Ingvo

Well, guy: just write from scratch an application in Japanese or Chinese, then we'll come back to you and decide to rank you based on the correctness of your spelling. Down to earth, guy, and kudo to the developer for this nice piece of freeware.

Clearly the developer's 1st language is Chinese, not English. There is no need to taunt anyone for a small typo on the screenshot (and there are a few: "bug" should be "bugS" plural)- Still, how's everyone's written Chinese btw? However, I can appreciate some wariness regarding non-native software designed for the Mac. How does software designed in Chinese get translated into American English exactly?

There is no word that spells 'creat'. It is spelled correctly as 'create' in the screenshot. People should review their brains before posting a review designed to incorrectly humiliate the developer. This is indeed an excellent utility that shows the dedication of the developer.

I don't think I'll bother downloading this until the developer decides to spell "creat" correctly. It's in the screenshot, people!
