Disk mount error and empty font suitcases?

Post by gingerbeardman »

Can anybody help me access the fonts on this disk?

I'm running 7.6.1 under Basilisk II and when I mount the discs there is an error -43 and the font suitcases seem to be empty?

Any ideas?

Thanks!

The fonts can be accessed with Font/DA Mover in System 6.
I seem to recall that some System 6 fonts were still usable under System 7.
No idea whether this is true in this case.

Thanks!

Despite them being "empty" inside, they install fine.

System 7 - partially usable (not tried adding Japanese support as yet)

OS 9 - with Japanese support - fully usable!
