I am hoping that there are a few older (OS 9.1) guy's to help me work out this problem.
I have a few old Newton's lying around collecting dust. I got them up and running but need to install "packages" on them using the Newton Connection Kit.
I can get the packages on to my Powerbook G-3 running OS 9.1. The problem is that they go from my PowerBook Pro running 10.6.8, to my PowerBook G-3 and once on the G3 they have generic icons and the Newton Connection Kit is unable to "see" them as Newton packages.
I rebuilt the desktop using Conflict Catcher but no luck on the packages becoming anything but generic.
What I need is a way to change the type and creator so the Newton Connection Kit can see them. Or some other way to get the packages onto the Newton.
I know it can be done using OS X but that involves buying a USB to Mini-Serial 8 pin connector and I don't have one of those.
Any help would be appreciated..... And if this is the wrong spot to ask these type of questions, please point me in the direction of where it should be.
Thanks in advance............
