So I've added a product to my online store that's in .DMG format. Most of the other files are ZIP or PDF. When someone completes a purchase, it downloads the file to them, and this works great:

header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream');
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="'. $file_row["filename"].'"');
$size = filesize('../../store/files/'.$file_row['filename']);
header('Content-Length: '.$size);

So I have my DMG file. I've verified that it automounts and behaves friendly. If you do a direct download, it mounts on the desktop perfectly, and there's all the stuff inside.

However, when I complete a test purchase and download using the above code, the DMG file downloads, but then it mounts; the contents are copied into the Downloads folder; the image unmounts; and then deletes. All the contents are delivered, but not in a desirable way. You can see the status change in the Downloads window:
