Hello y'all

I have particular icons that not appear as they're supposed to (SDII-files).
I know it should display in the normal way, since I've seen them for a while and then they change back to default Mac 'unknown' type-icons.
Zapping p-ram, rebuilding desktops with key commands and Techtool, changing 'file exchange', nothing helps.

Is there a finder-pref or db-file that I need to trash to get it back ?

I'm having the exact same problem, and found this thread when searching for the answer. Has anyone solved it yet?

There is a finder preference file in the preferences folder in the system folder in your hard drive. Try trashing it and restart.

About trashing the prefs: been there, done that... Didn't help.
For the SoundDesigner II files (SDII) the reason is simple: SD is not installed
But fo instance some RealAudio-files have lost their icons too (.ra).
I'm suspecting the Mac Easy Open cp to play part here...

Any other idea's ?
