I'll be going off to college in a couple of weeks and decided now was the time to make the switch since I would be needing a new laptop. I received my new MacBook last week only two days after I had ordered it from the online Apple store!! I am loving the new operating system and can't wait to get this thing online and see everything it has to offer. (I swear, sometimes I feel like the only one that still has dial-up on their home computer.) Anyway, I had some questions about some weird files that I've found in my "iPhoto Library" folder. The files are: iPhoto.ipspot iPhotoLock.data Library.data Library.iPhoto Library6.iPhoto Thumb32Segment.data Thumb64Segment.data ThumbJPGSegment.data Dir.data AlbumData.xml The two ".iPhoto" files open up iPhoto and a message pops up saying that the file is unreadable and could not be imported. The ".data" and ".ipspot" files have no default application specified to open the document. And finally the ".xml" file opens up as Big Bang 4-In-A-Row. What are all these files supposed to do and how did they get there? I currently have no photo in my iPhoto library, and the only ones I did have were imported from Photo Booth and subsequently deleted just so I could see what options the iPhoto program offered. Any help would be appreciated. P.S.- I typed this message on my MacBook, transferred it to my internet-enabled PC via my brand new iPod nano, and posted it. Why? Because I can.
