My impression is that this is nearly always due to a botched install, where you've got old versions of Disk Copy or its related stuff still floating around on the hard drive. m. -- matt neuburg, phd = [email]matttidbits.com[/email], [url]http://www.tidbits.com/matt[/url] REALbasic: The Definitive Guide! 2nd edition!

    My impression is that this is nearly always due to a botched install,
    where you've got old versions of Disk Copy or its related stuff still
    floating around on the hard drive. m.

    I once had a similar problem that was caused by a software conflict. Try
    logging out, and then logging back in while holding down the shift key
    (start holding it down just before hitting Enter after the password).
    This will keep most third-party stuff that normally loads at login from
    loading. See if Disk Copy still has the same problem. If not, you've got
    a conflict of some type.

    If you need to carry this test to the next level, restart and hold the
    shift key down while the Mac boots and until you get to the login
    prompt. Then log in as described above. This will suppress most
    third-party software that loads both at boot and at login.

    FWIW, the file that was causing my Disk Copy problem was
    </Users/[user name]/Library/Application Enhancers/camel.ape>. After I
    removed it, the problem disappeared and never came back. This file had
    been installed by a beta version of a third-party utility I had used.

    Running in OS9 DiskCopy gives a checksum error.

    Proper answer is to download a clean replacement, or
    depending on what the contents are, try clicking [Skip]
    while it's still checksumming. I got mine to mount like
    this, and got the files I wanted from it... YMMV

    I've seen this when I've removed the helvetica.dfont without
    installing a suitable replacement. Disk Copy craps out when
    it tries to display the license agreement.
