    Recently, i created a word document on my mac, added pictures ect.. Then saved it onto a flash stick. Then i brought it into school to print it out, but when i loaded it up in Word, all the images had been replaced with text saying "Quicktime not supported" Is there a way to stop it rendering them with quicktime? and use whatever PC's use? My school are on windows 98 i think.

    Instead of dragging and dropping pictures in the Word document, you need to use the Insert >Picture >From File command.

    Don't know why MS does this, it is a real pain.

    Other ways are print to pdf, then use the pdf on your school computer.

    Just copy and paste the image into the Word document. Seems to work fine for me. That way you don't have to transfer the files along with the Word doc.

    I do the same exact thing when I have to transfer a file to another PC on campus, and it works like a charm.
