Q. Does 'PicShow' with 'Thumb' work in OS4?

A. No
They both work fine on my Micro with OS4

So do the following thumb creators/viewers:
PhotoAlbum
PicView
Collector
AmiPhoto

Thanks number6,

In your experience with OS4, can you do anything to get a prog to work after receiving a report like this for PicShow?



Or this for Thumb?

Any idea on how to use a CDRW as a "floppy"? I`v mounted the CDRW & CDMRW volumes, correcting the devices (DEVICE=scsi.device , UNIT=1), but no luck: when the Prefs/FormatCDRW is launched and select QuickFormat, the disk becomes unreadable ...
The BlankDisk & FormatCD-RW give errors when clicked.
When the CD is ejected, I get the following error
Quote:
SCSI command 00 00 00 00 00 00 failed
sense: 70 00 02 00 00 00 00 0A 00 00 00 00 3A 00 00 00 00 00

Keep in mind that under 3.x everythink works flawlessly (just to exlude new h/w & cabling errors)...

P.S. I had some strange problems with the CybSCSI HD, but I`m waiting an Active Terminator to rule out any possibility (see "Tips & Tricks #6, page 35 on the Quickstart Giude ;-) ).

@A4000_Mad
When GrimReaper appears, it`s dead end. You can always try your luck with "more" and "continue" the binary execution... but the error will popup soon again :-(

@A4000_Mad

Personally I had several failures for different reasons.
(1)Make sure you are running current versions (obviously)
(2)Be sure to use native jpeg.library on OS4depot as stated
(3)Do NOT use WOS versions or powerpc.library from OS4 updates#3 and #4. You will get conflicts.
(4)Remember that not all files are included on CD and OS4depot, as mentioned above is a good place to check for native files, to replace 68k versions that may be troublesome. Aminet is fine for this research too, but I can not guarantee all PPC files from OS4depot are on Aminet. Still other PPC files are only available from author's websites. Wish it wasn't this way for convenience sake, but..such is life.
(5)Snoopdos is not recommended under OS4 for reasons Tetisoft can better explain, but you CAN try it to check resources not found. Not infallible by any means, but worth a shot. Do not try to change prefs. It will crash. (known problem)
(6)Ranger (by ssolie) on OS4depot is a better choice than Scout for accuracy and what it covers. Currently, it's one of the best diagnostic tools the average user has for OS4.
(7)I have also seen a corrupted prefs file cause a fatal error in picshow, so it's always worth checking as last resort and deleting and creating a new one.

Let us know please if any of this helps.

That will be very helpful thanks #6 :-)

Can you just confirm that a report from the Grim Reaper does not mean it's time to give up as far as getting something to work in OS4 is concerned?



I believe it does for WHDLoad above though?

Oh! When I first used the ToolsPrefs of ToolsDaemon I was simply told that 'reqtools.library' was required and didn't get a nasty report from the Grim Reaper. I put the library into OS4:Libs and away it went :-)


@ Cass

Oops! Just noticed the part of your post addressed to me (prehaps you added it later ;-)). Sorry, but I haven't got as far as checking out your promble yet.
