I am having problems with my Macbook Pro, its running on OSX. Everytime I try to access a file with in a folder to attach it to a Mail ( Im using MS Outlook for MAC as my client ) the whole folder gets attached instead. I noticed this as well when I was trying to add a specific movie file to my I-tunes Library, OSX does not present me the option to open the Folder instead it makes the Folder the target itself.
You posted in the OS X 10.3 forum instead of the MacBook Pro forum. To get answers to your question, next time post in the proper forum. See https://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa I'll request that Apple relocate your post.
