    .dmg won't open


      I made a video in 2009 with Adobe Premiere Elements, and burned it to a DVD. The DVD never played anywhere else (tvs, computers, etc) and I just gave up because I could watch it on the Premiere Elements on my laptop. I recently found the DVD and I want to watch it again, I no longer have the computer that I made the video on originally. Can anyone help me view the video on a macbook pro so I can save it somewhere else?

          OK, was that a DVD-Video, that you authored in your older PrE, with the VIDEO_TS folder, and the IFO, BUP and VOB files, or was it a DVD-Data disc, with an AV file on it?


          If the latter, what is the format (file extension) and CODEC used in that AV file?

          Also, if a DVD-Data, was it done on a Mac, or a PC?


          Good luck, and let us know just a bit more, please,

            Also, you mention DMG, which is a Mac Disk Image File.


            If properly written, then the disk, containing that file, should Mount, just like a hard disk drive. Is that not happening on your Mac?


            Also, I do not believe that PrE could write directly to a DMG, so if that is what you have, it might be useful to know exactly how that DMG file was created.


            Good luck,

              You definitely should not get a DMG file when you Publish & Share your movie!


              A DMG is, as Bill says, a Disc Image File, the equivalent of a Windows ZIP file. It's usually used to deliver a program via download and should extract and launch (usually installing a program) automatically when you download it to your Mac.


              I don't know any way you would have gotten a DMG file from a Premiere Elements video.
