I downloaded a DMG in multiple parts, split into .dmg.001, .dmg.002 etc.

I "uncompressed" the first file (just double-clicked and a single folder .dmg got created)

The dmg is of the right size (690 MB). However I can only see it as a "folder" in Finder. I can't mount the DMG. Instead I see a "file" inside it called "hfs".

That doesn't seem right at all. What's happening? Have I just got a corrupted DMG or is there more to it?

P.S: I don't know which software the split DMG's were created with.

P.S: I was able to merge the multi-part DMG using "Keka". However Stuffit refused to recognize the first file .dmg.001 – Dev Kanchen Jan 30 '13 at 18:54
