Hello, I need some help. I'd like to know what part of the HFS format is responsible for how icons on an external CD-volume appear on the desktop of Mac OS 9. The desktop database holds the icon info but where is info. like Window-sizing on the Mac, no. of icons per row, spacing of icons etc. stored ? Is this stored on the hard-disk of the Mac or is there some way in which I can get this to be stored on my CD as well ? Is this part of the desktop database too ? The situation is as follows - when I insert my HFS-CD into my drive and click on the CD-symbol a window opens up displaying the icons for all the files present on the CD but they are not spaced properly and the view doesn't look all that good - Is there some way in which I can display these properly ? ..ie. say 'n' icons in one row etc ? Sometimes there are around 30 icons displayed for around 100 files on my CD... then a lot of empty space is displayed - which could mislead the user to think that no more files are present - and then the remaining 70 file-icons suddenly show up. I presume this doesn't have to be stored on the external HFS-volume but rather has something to do with my Mac-OS settings... but I'm not too sure. I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me which part is responsible for such things ? I'm not creating a desktop DB at the moment but this looks really bad and I'd like to change it if I can i.e. if this can be overcome somehow without having a desktop database on my CD.
