I have a Disk Image that suddenly decided to go sour. Is there any way to get it back? Is there any other programs beside Disk Copy that will open them?

You can try Aladdin's ShrinkWrap... i don't know if it will be able to do any repair to it, but you can try... You should make a copy of the image and then try some of the manipulations... one thing might be trying to convert the disk image (using shrinkwrap) to another size...
just a thought...

Disk First Aid works on RAM disks and Disk Images.

I believe disk first aid would only be able to verify it if shalom777 was able to mount it... shalom, can you mount the disk image? If your disk image is read only, then disk copy will only be able to verify it... if it is a read/write image, then you will be able to verify and repair it... but again, this is under then premise that you are able to mount the image...
good luck
dave
