    Ok so I am new to mac and I would like to change my icons on my dock but for some reason only one pack I have downloaded so far has worked. All the other sets I've tried (3 or 4) come up with the preview icon when I try to copy them onto the default icons. Does any one know why this is happening and can somebody please tell me how to fix it? Thanks

    Does the preview say .ico or .icns? I don't think .ico files work in OS X. Could be wrong about that.
