    they are mostly jpegs.

    and some vcards....

    I'm transferring over the network in my home.....

    It hasn't had any trouble with PDF's so i'm semi-sure that its not the networks fault.... but i'm not sure

    cheers

    once these files are on your mac, do they have proper icons? or just white squares? when you try to open one, what is the error you get?

    ok, very odd. what way are you copying these files? Conncting to from the PC to the Mac, or the from the Mac to the PC. Whatever way round you are trying at the moment, give it a go the other way round.

    If you can go one at a time then do it that way. Open up the folder you want to transfer and select all. Then move them into a new folder created on the Mac. A little bit of a pain but solves the probelm.
