Apple macintosh: my G4 dual processor Mac runs OSX and OS 9. When running OSx I tried to switch to OS9 by the usual method; i went to mac preferences and selected OS9 and asked it to restart. It closed and seemed about to restart, but instead I get a flashing button in the middle of the screen with a picture of the earth on it. I tried closing and restarting but the sme thing happens again. Help!

I have the 8 disc set (mac version) purchased in the year 2000 working with OSX 9. Now I have a new mac with snow leopard version OSX 10. I would like to use the disc's with the new computer, what do I do?


Unfortunately the software will not work with OSX. OS9 (also refered to as classic os) had some compatibility with macs up to 2005 when Apple changed the processors in macs to Intel. Since then all OS9 software no longer works.
There is a small chance you may be able to browse/search the CD's folders for images as the photo objects may be in jpg/gif/png format. Try opening finder, select the CD. and search with the text box in the upper right corner in Finder.

Mac Powerbook shows file wih flashing question mark, won't boot.


The flashing question mark means that the computer can't find an OS.
If the computer previously was working, start up from the OSX disc and run 'Disc Utility' from the 'Utilities' menu in the top toolbar.
Run 'First Aid' to check and repair any errors.
If the computer still can't find an OS then you will need to re-install OSX.

Canon N650U and Mac OSX


Canon only has this scanner driver in OS9 and it will run in classic mode if you are using OSX. This $40 software will work with your scanner in OSX, but for $40 you can purchase an OSX native scanner too.
