I can't open jpgs created in Jaguar on my new MacBook Pro

I just got a new MacBook Pro and now I am having proplems opening my clients jpg files (created on a G3 using Photoshop 5.5 in Jaguar).
Some open fine, some just flash and disapear when I click on the folders containing them, so I can't even open the folders they are in. I tried to use PhotoShop CS3 to open the files, but no luck. They can't even be opened in the finder.
I AM able to open the files on my old G4 with Photoshop CS2 with no problems. It seems to be a OS 10.49 problem or MacBook Pro problem instead of Photoshop because they are not opening in the finder either. I tried resaving the files in PhotoShop CS2 (on my G4) and burning them to a CD to transfer them to the MacBook Pro. Still didn't work.
These files are part of a web job I need to finish soon. I've been braging about how cool my MacBook Pro and the new CS3Dreamweaver is. Do I have to eat my words and go back to using my slow G4?.

Me thinks you have tried to connect to a shortcut folder and not a genuine folder.
Note Mac OS X in Mac OS X 10.4 has 3 popular folder shortcut locations:
The leftmost column of the Finder window.
The horizontal toolbar on the top of the Finder window
The translucent bar which can be anchored on the side or bottom of the screen known as the Dock. These are not true folder locations, but only locations for shortcuts. When you click on a folder for a volume that is not mounted, or is a folder which was deleted it will behave in this fashion. Often if you click on it the right fashion, it will change to a question mark.
In addition if it is an alias to an existing folder that has no contents, it will behave this way from the three shortcut locations.
If you right click instead of the left click a folder, it may think you want to do something to the folder which you can't do. Make sure your mouse button functions properly as a Primary button on Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Keyboard and Mouse.
Also make sure Universal Access is not turned on as it too can cause funny behavior in the mouse click actions, in Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Universal Access.

  • How can I set up multiple spaces (desktops) on my new MacBook Pro 10.9.5?  I have six set up on my other computer MacBook Pro 10.8.5 but can't find how to do it on this new one.  Would appreciate help on this.  Cheers.

    It's not completely obvious. What you have to do in Spaces is to position your cursor to the upper right of the screen, after which faint + (plus) sign appears in that area. Click that, upon which another Desktop will appear.
    The + may be difficult or impossible to see with some desktop backgrounds (black, for instance):

  • I can't install my old logic 8 on my new macbook pro. It says it does not support powerpc applications anymore. what do i need to do?? this is ridiculous!!!

    I can't install my old logic 8 on my new macbook pro. It says it does not support powerpc applications anymore. what do i need to do?? this is ridiculous!!!

    Logic 8 will probably run on your new machine but the installation program contains some older PPC code for pre Intel Macs. This was not a problem as all OSX versions contained the "Rosetta" PPC emulation, that is, up until Lion when all PPC emulation was dropped.
    There are ways to do this however, try searching Google for:  Installing Logic 8 under Lion or Mountain Lion.

    You should have gotten one w/your new MBP.  If not, check out Apple - Support - Manuals & download the one for your model MBP.

  • Can't open Adobe cs5.5 .dmg on a 15inch MacBook Pro Retina screen

    Hi there,
    Hopefully someone can help.
    I recently bought a 15inch retina screen new macbook pro after my old one started to die last week - I bought Adobe cs5.5 a few years ago and I'd really like to be able to install in on the new laptop so I can get on with my work. As there is no disc drive I downloaded the file from Adobe which took many hours and now as soon as I click on it it comes up with this.
    I tried to use the disc utility to do something with it but wasn't really sure what I needed to do and buggered up the first download and had to try and get it again. I haven't had this problem with my old laptop - i'd even updated the os to be running the same so I don't know why it's having a problem with the .dmg and as I haven't had the problem before I don't really know what to do. If someone could help me out I'd be super grateful as I do have client work I need to get on with.
    Thanks so much,
    Emilia

  • I can't seem to close the screen on my new MacBook Pro with ext montitor

    I have a new MacBook Pro with a Samsung T240 through the DVI link. I can see my desktop on the external monitor when the laptop screen is open, but if I close it the computer goes to sleep and I cannot see anything on the T240.
    I have the Bluetooth keyboard and the Bluetooth mouse. The mouse also deactivates until I manually browse for it after I wake the computer up by opening the screen.
    I know I should be able to keep the display closed but how do I do this? Thanks!

    Let the laptop sleep, then hit a key on the keyboard or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.

  • Can not access time machine backups. after transfer to new macbook pro

    Irecently up graded to a new MacBook Pro.  I baked up all my files on an external drive using time machine.  Now when I try to retrive my files from the backups.backupdb folder I can not access may of my files.  Message: "The folder “Music” can’t be opened because you don’t have permission to see its contents."
    I'm fairly certain I have a diffrent user name on my new machine but dont know what my old user name and password were (never really used them). 
    How can I access 3 years worth of work in this time machine backup?

  • How can I transfer photos from Apple TV to a new MacBook Pro?  I have My Photo Stream turned on for both.

    I have a new McBook Pro with OS X Mavericks.  I transferred my photos from my old MacBook Pro to my Apple TV.  I turned on My Photo Stream on both my Apple TV and my new MacBook Pro, and I want to transfer my photos to my new MacBook.  Will this work?  It's not transferring them automatically, but I don't know what else I need to do to make it work.  Thank you!

    no you can't only option is to take it apart and put the harddisk in an usb ext harddisk case and connect it to the computer copy the photos to the computer
    take the harddisk out of the ext usb harddisk case and put it back into the appletv and assemble it again

  • How can I connect my existing firewire drives to the "new" Macbook pro

    I'm thinking about getting a new Macbook Pro, to take on the road.
    I already have four external drives with firewire and USB 2.0 ports.
    After I looked at the new machine I noticed it only had USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt ports.
    I dont see any Firewire to Thunderbolt technology out there nor do I see any  USB3.0 to anything technology. How can I connect my drives to the new system?

    You can use the USB3 connections for USB2.  That's downward compatible.  Just runs at USB2 speed.
    Just this week apple announced a couple of TB adapters, TB-to-ethernet and TB-to-firewire.  But the FW adapter is not at the apple store as yet (at least at the time I am posting this).
