Applications :: Cannot Open Photoshop File Because File Is Empty?

Mar 21, 2010

I have been working on a project and have a completed picture on my flash drive but when I go to open it, it says cannot open because file is empty. It shows that the size of the file is 96 kb and I can see it with the "quick look" option when you left click. This is using CS3 by the way.

Applications :: Unable To Open Keynote Presentation File - File Corrupted?

Oct 18, 2010

Today I tried opening my keynotes presentation file to make amendments to it and when I double clicked on it, the program loading bar only loaded up a third of the way and then hanged. I then tried to save it to a flash drive and use it on a different computer, but when I tried to copy it over to the flash drive it gave me this error: "the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "garment styles" could not be read or written error code - 36".

I have tried changing the file extension to a zip, then unzipping it and then renaming it but that did not work.(It wouldn't let me unzip it). I have also looked at the index file name to see if that was the problem, but that is as it should be.

I have also tried uploading it to a website and emailing it and it will not let me.

Is there anyway I can recover this file as I have been working on it for over a month and it is due next week, or will I need to start again?

Applications :: ITunes Original File Info Deleted - Library Empty

Jan 20, 2009

In trying to set up shared music among the users of my computer I think I deleted the original file info, even though there was a music folder showing folders for the individual artists in my library. These however now appear to be empty. I have the music listed in iTunes but when I try to open a song I get a window with the following message, "The song "...." could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?" But no luck locating the files. The guy at the Apple Genius Bar said I could retrieve the music but refused to tell me how because it is supposedly illegal. I don't know why it is illegal because the tunes were purchased. But he did tell me to google the problem and I have come up empty handed.

Software :: Unable To Open Encrypted File / Recovering The Original File?

Aug 23, 2009

ok trying not to get a panic attack here. I downloaded espionge to encrypt my valuable files and while it was encrypting (AES 128 bit i think) the program froze and I had to Force quit it. Now I try to open my file (that i was trying to encrypt) and it looks f*^&# up. I can't open it, and when I tried to unmount the partially encrypted file, espionage gave me errors that it couldnt recover the original file.

I had basically all my life's valuable accumulated data in that folder (it was 10 Gb+). I will praise anyone to the end of my days that can somehow tell me how to restore my file to its original state. Usefull info:

1) AM planning to pay gazillions for recovery software if need be, but free alternatives are always better.

2) I never secure delete if that helps

3) I still have the .sparseimage for the file created by espionage. (P.S. sparseimage's size looks really close to the orignal, also 10 Gb +).

4) Newest version of OSX, and have an IMac.

5) after incident I haven't done anything (no installations or downloads) apart from writing this.

6) the encrypted file was gonna be in HFS+ i think

Mac Mini :: Open .ods Zip File Which Save As .cpgz File Extension?

Apr 10, 2012

I try to open an Open Office spread sheet and it simply saves the file as another file with the .cpgz extension which does the same thing.  This did not happen a couple weeks ago; I think my download for Apple updates may be the culprit.  My OS X is now 10.7.3, I believe originally it was 10.7.2 but I could be wrong. 

The original document is a zip archive but now "saves as" a .cpgz archive.  I have tried the "Unarchiver", which I just downloaded, but it only creates another file with subfolders, none of which appear to have my original spread sheet.  (To be honest, I never noticed this Open Office spread sheet file was a zip file until a few minutes ago when I tried to unsuccessfully open it). 

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

Having had gimp for a few days, I'd like to use it for my default viewing and editing app.

When I click an icon in my image folders, Preview opens it. How can I change this so that gimp opens the pictures instead? Or perhaps have the option of choosing between several apps like Windows allows?

Applications :: Open Pages File On A PC?

Jan 22, 2008

I wrote up a paper for school, saved it on my flash drive and went off to school.

Only problem is my school is entirely PC, and I didn�t remember to save it for word.

I need a program that can convert a pages document to word or let me open it in another program on the PC.

I tried installing open office on the computer here at school but it wont let me. I should be able to install most other programs though.

When my professor asks me who I don�t have it done I don�t want to say because I use a mac. Well I do, but I shouldn't.

Mac Pro :: Photoshop CS3 Large Format File Keeps Quitting

Apr 15, 2009

At one point I reinstalled PS3, but now I have the problem again.I often have problems with large format files in PS3. It was working fine, but after a couple of hours it "unexpectedly quit....". I have relaunched, tossed preferences, etc. When I force quit, the PS3 icon in the dock still shows up with the dot and the Force Quit window shows up with no indication that there is a problem. When I try to reboot many times I have to use the power button on the mac. Finally i got PS3 to open...I opened up a different file and it worked fine, but the large format file tried to open and it came up with "Could not complete your request because of a program error." Photoshop locked up. Do my large file formats get corrupted for some reason?I have a MacPro, Dual-Core Intel Xeon, 2.66 GHZ, 2 processors, and 16G B memory...There should not be a memory problem with this machine. Why do I always have problems with a large format file?

Applications :: Cannot Open Power Point Zip File In My System?

I transferred a Powerpoint 2008 presentation using a USB memory stick from my new iMac (latest OSX) to an older iMac (OSX 10.4.11) but could not open the file either by double-click or from the Powerpoint 2004 application on that computer. The file icon as transferred is a Zip file and when I double-click iI get a window saying 'Archiving file ...' but it doesn't open. Neither do I get an unzipped icon to open. I confirmed that BOMArchivehelper is enabled and exists on the computer. What am I missing?

I need to add something to the HOSTS file, here is the error message that appears when I try to log in.

Im using MAc Osx 10.5 Any ideas of what's going on?

OS X :: Locked File - Empty Trash

Feb 3, 2010

My problem is with 300+ files in 2 folders that are left over from mac 9. They are in the trash, and are now locked, utterly. When I try to empty the trash, the error message says "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items." As you may know, when dealing with multiple "disks" (read: partitions), Mac X puts a .Trash or .Trashes folder on each disk. The trash folders on my computer are located on the following paths:

/users/(my name)/.Trash
