    Hi, I'm trying to use CineBench to test the ability of my (aged, like a fine wine) G4's video card, a Radeon 9800. However, I'm encountering a weird error--When I first ran the program, I'm instead met with CINEMA 4D, which is a 3D modeling program. This same thing happens if I download it from Apple.com or MAXON's website. To figure out why this is happening, I tried on my modern MacBook Pro, and CineBench opened just fine and benchmarked my laptop properly. At this point, I was confused! So I put the CineBench folder on a thumb drive, and stuck the drive into my G4. Now, if I launch CineBench off the thumb drive, it loads fine. But if I drag the contents of the folder over to the G4, I'm met with Cinema 4D instead! Could anyone please tell me what's going on? :confused:

    I seem to not be the only one with this problem, as seen here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=513831

    The one thing I think could maybe be affecting this is that the G4 drive is formatted UFS, and when I download CineBench, the folders contained the download are in lowercase letters. Over the thumbdrive, it's all uppercase.
