This may happen to files copied from other platforms without being compressed inside a .bin/.sit/.hqx container. ResEdit can be used to set these attributes (match them with a working disk image file).

* '''Command + Option + P + R''' (during boot) - This will wipe the PRAM contents. If you're experiencing strange issues with your Macintosh or problems like video not being displayed, clearing the PRAM may help.
* '''Command + Shift + 3''' - Takes a screenshot in PICT format and places it in the root of your hard drive.
