Hi all,
how do I mount .dc42 image files?

I tried it with shrink wrapper (or something like that) and couldn't figure it out- I'm either very stupid or that piece of software has a very lousy interface...

Whatever the hell a .dc42 file is, I'm sure it doesn't contain anything that will run or open under Mac OS 7.

Au contraire, Dan! DC42 is a very old Apple disk image format from "Disk Copy 4.2" and it absolutely runs on System 7 (you can get it here). The image is most likely a floppy image from the System 6 era. If Disk Copy 4.2 fails you for whatever reason, you might want to try converting it to a newer format with the command hdiutil on Mac OS X.

Good luck!

Well that would explain why I know nothing about it. Why wouldn't Disk Copy 6 open this?

It should be able to. The Disk Copy 6 Quick Reference suggests that it can, but I haven't been able to test it.
