Okay, ignore the topic... I mean desktop PRINTER.
I suspect this is a result of updating the disk drivers when I installed OS9...
I did a clean install of OS9 on my iMac 266. Ever since then, most applications that use the newer open/save dialoges won't open the HD from the desktop and give the error that applications cannot open desktop printers. Even trying to reassign an alias from the Finder will give this. The only exception is GraphicConverter, but that app gives a choice of which you want to use, which might be a factor. Thankfully, old Open/Save with Default Folder doesn't do it, and I can also get to "Favorites" to get around it.
This happens no matter what I use as startup (even OS9 Install CD), and no matter what extensions I have activated. I don't use printers (except for a PDF "printer"), and I don't even have the desktop printer software installed.
I had a call into Apple about it, but the person there had to refer to someone else (who wasn't there at the time). I got a message on my voicemail the other day, but I haven't been able to contact them at a convenient time yet, and was wondering if someone here has seen this or would have an idea of what to do.
