    This is just a "me too" post. I've tried deleting Finder and LaunchServices preferences, neither of which helps.

    Another person in the same situation here as well, running 10.6.1. Since some have been postulating that it's a Finder issue, I am (as I type this) downloading and preparing to install PathFinder, to see if it experiences the same issue.

    Snow Leopard was installed over Leopard 10.5.8 (itself resulting from lots of upgrades from Tiger).
    No problem here with .dmg files

    To reiterate on my previous statement....got Path Finder, and when I started experiencing the issue again in Finder (opening a .dmg), I switched over to Path Finder, double clicked the .dmg and....it opened right up. Isolated to Finder.

    I am having the same problem as the rest of you mugs! .DMG files will not mount. Apps bounce when launched but will not launch, force quit required. Logging out, then logging back in works but only for a while. C'mon Apple, please help us out!

    I solve my problem by replacing the 2 pref files below with the old files from my 10.5.8 system. I usually clone my old system before I update to the newer system.
