I have a number of old photos from the system 7-9.x days that for some reason cannot be opened in Mountain Lion in Preview. Is there a way around this, or ws this my mistake that I made in not keeping a older OS 8.x Mac around? I also have some old palm Desktop files that I cannot open and I would like to retrview the TEXT in the documents. Anyone know of a way?

iPhone 4S, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    What was the file format of the photos? There might be something that can open them.

    There are some online file converters, you might google for something like that and see if they can convert them to something openable.


    To get the text, you might just right-click on the file and choose open with, Other...

    Browse for TextEdit and see if you can retriev the text out of the file.
