In Terminal,

hdiutil convert disk.dmg -format RdWr -o disk.img

where disk.dmg is the path to your image (input)
and disk.img the output image

I'm not familiar enough with the formats...why would one want to convert?

Disk Copy in OS9 creates compressed .img files.
Disk Utility in OSX creates compressed .dmg files.

I DO know that .img image files can be opened in OSX. I DON'T know if .dmg image files can be opened in OS9; I haven't tried.

If it doesn't try just renaming the type from .dmg to .img..... Or is it vice-versa?



What it is, man, a low-down and funky feelin'

Hey, chas, I tried it, but no luck. I'm taking a low-tech approach.
