It's likely that the DMG is read-only like most disk image files are...it's possible it's read-write on the Mac but not likely. Do you know for sure this is a read-write disk image?

MagicISO can work with .DMG files so that would be your best bet to be able to access the file and modify it.

I've tried MagicISO Maker. It can't work with DMG files.

you are right. The dmg file is read only and cannot be modified.
I've rebuilt it from the beginning.
