OS9 icons change on OS10

Why? When transferring files from a Mac using OS9 to a Mac using OS10, the icons change appearance and the file info changes too. That is, a Quark document is identified as Unix, Illustrator eps becomes generic, etc.

    Your first response put me at ease. I thought the problem was something quirky only with my computers. I have many aged graphic programs on an aged OS9 computer that I cannot yet afford to upgrade to the newer computer (OS10.4, Intel). Only Quark 7.3 and a now out-of-date trial of Creative Suite 3 is on the new device. I had been able to open Illustrator and Photoshop with the trial version. Also, Quark did open the older generic icon files (4.1) in a round about way. But strangely, after many months, the 4.1 icons on CDs now look the same on both OS9 and OS10.4 computers. Quirky computer actions defy explanation.
    Anyway, thanks for your input. It helped.

I had the same thing happen when I switched from os9 to osx. I had to install the programs, Quark, Illustrator, etc. then the icons appearance was normal. You may also have to actually open the program, then open the files themselves before the icons show as normal.

Hope this helps.

How to Change the ICON of an EXE file


Some times it becomes necessary to change the ICON of an executable(.exe) file so that the exe file get’s a new appearence.Many of the Tools such as TuneUP Winstyler does this job by adjusting the Windows to display a custom icon to the user.But in reality when the file is carried to a different computer, then it shows it’s original ICON itself.This means that inorder to permanantly change the ICON, it is necessary to modify the executable file and embed the ICON inside the file itself.Now when this is done the exe file’s ICON is changed permanantly so that even if you take file to a different computer it show’s a new icon.


For this purpose I have found a nice tool which modifies the exe file and will embed the ICON of your choice into the file itself. ie:The tool changes the exe ICON permanantly.

I’ll give you a step-by-step instruction on how to use this tool to change the icon.

1. Goto www.shelllabs.com and download the trial version of Icon Changer and install it (Works on both XP and Vista).
2. Right-click on the exe file whose ICON is to be changed.
3. Now you will see the option Change Icon…Click on that option.
4. Now the Icon Changer program will open up.
5. Icon changer will search for all the ICONS on your system so that you can select any one of those.
6. Now select the ICON of your choice and click on SET.
7. Now a popup window will appear and ask you to select from either of these two options.
  • Change embeded icon.
  • Adjust Windows to display custom icon.
Select the first option (Change embeded icon).
8. You are done.The ICON get’s changed.

When i turn it on it's saying there's no such file directory. It's a dual core processor I tried to switch it from Os9 to Os10 and now it's got a black screen with this on it


Try starting from CD and check hard drive. Sounds like you installed something that may have corrupted something on your hard drive.

Iomega 500 gb hard drive: large file transfers


The default format for the IOMega drive is FAT32. This format will work on all versions of Windows, as well as Mac OS9 and above. Unfortunately, FAT32 can't handle files larger than 4gigs. If you want to use larger files, you're going to have to remove all the files from your IOMega drive and use your computer to format it to NTFS (Windows 2000/XP/Vista) or HFS+ (Mac OS9/X).

Consult your owner's manual for specific details.

Server OS 9.2


Server 9.2 ?
I don't recall it being called that. The server products available at the time of OS 9.2 changed from ASIP 6.3 to early versions of OSX.
  • Do you mean AppleShare IP(ASIP) 6.3.3, which came with all the file sharing and mail stuff?
  • Is it definitely an OS9 interface ?
There's loads of ASIP 6.3 help if you search the knowledgebase. This one came top of the list:
