If I use the MagicISO and open a dmg file I get "Can't find the file or file isn't CD image file" and cannot go any further

the .dmg image extension includes around 16 different types of disk image formats - it is not a standard -  and only around a third of these can be directly converted to an .iso format without using specific conversion tools (and in the simplest of conversions the .dmg actually contains a .iso compliant format so you can simply change the extension to .iso and it works!).  So you do need to look at getting dmg2img if a normal .iso convertor does not work to pre-process the .dmg
