Recently a friend of mine email to me a program with .img file format.

I receive the email on my office where i work on PC (sorry...)

I put the file on a CD and at home i put it on my iMAC DV but during these operations i've lost the resource fork of the file.

The question is : how can i make for reading correctly the file on my Mac ? With a program, change in Resedit (i've tried) ?

Please answer to me on my email too because i can't read this forum frequently.

Thank's for the answers

You can also get your friend to use a program called 'Tri-Bar MRC' to separate the resource fork of the .img file from the data fork. The resource fork is them stored as a separate file from the data fork, and when you run both files through a de-MRC program, the two forks are once again joined and the whole .img file resides on your HD, ready for use...

It will take less time for him to MRC it and you to de-MRC it than for him to stuff it and you to unstuff it. But the MRC method requires that you both have the Tri-Bar MRC program on your computers. It can be found at http://www.tribar.dabsol.co.uk/mrc.html

Hope this helps.
