many thanks!
The issue is that I used an older version of Disk Copy 6.1, under emulator btw..

fail to mount this image.

I was able to expand and mount this OK in Basilisk II running Mac OS 7.6.1, so I cannot replicate any errors with it. - Have since also run it OK in SheepShaver (Mac OS 7.6.1) and Min vMac II (Mac OS 7.1.1).

Only thing I noticed was that StuffIt Expander v.5.5 took 2 or 3 minutes to extract the file, but otherwise it's just a typical Disk Copy 6 image file that extracts, and double-clicking it mounted it OK for me onto B2's desktop.

Requires; Disk Copy 6.1 or newer installed to mount the image. If using an emulator, mount the extracted ".img" from inside an emulated HD to enable mounting, not mounted from within a shared HD or shared desktop.

[Edit] I think I can see what you were doing. Guessing that you were trying to add the "img" as a disk drive in an emulator's GUI before starting up the emulator? If so that's not going to work. The original uploader created a Disk Copy 6 (Compressed format) image before Stuffing it for upload. Disk Copy 6 compressed format is incompatible with an emulator as a mountable HD. It has to be extracted inside the emulated HD and OS if you want to get anywhere with it.

I've uploaded a non compressed .iso version in a zipped archive as the 2nd DL that you may prefer to try.

This came with some copies of Mac OS 7. I remember it on my Performa.
Yeah, the voices are awesome.

I tested this one in Basilisk II with Mac OS 7. It runs great. I really dig the voices.
