If so, try opening AppleWorks on that machine and going to File>Open and navigate to them form there.<br><br>It probably wouldn't hurt to rebuild the desktop either. You can do that by holding [command]-[option] at startup.<br><br>
Thanks for all your interest in my problem.<br>Yes I did mean files produced in AppleWorks on th OSX machine will not open on the OS9 machine.<br>I can see the files on the flash drive but as grey objects with the letters PC.<br><br>
Saying "no luck" doesn't give us much to go on. When you opened AppleWorks on MacOS 9, went to File menu, chose Open (note you may have to set the FileType to "all files" in the open dialogue box) and opened the file, what exactly happened?<br><br><br>
