Specs: Mac
I read your post from 11/16 about opening the files on my Mac but the majority of the buttons on my XnView are greyed out. Can you explain to me why?

In my XnView, if you hover the cursor over the icon, you get the Function of that button even if it is grayed out.
To show the function of each button, go to Options, it is the sprocket looking icon, usually at the end next to the Help button, which is a question mark

In the Options window, under Interface
select Toolbar
Make sure you check mark the box that read: Show Button Text
Click OK

Next, you'll want to add a File Association,

In the Options window, under System Integration
select Associations
Scroll down the list of file types and check mark both

What post are you referring to? What are you trying to accomplish with XnView? It would help if you were more specific.

This is the thread the OP is referencing:

The greyed out buttons are on the XbView program itself

Which buttons are you referring to?

Did you read thru both links, especially the

https://jonesrh.info/sfw/index.html

The conversion, unfortunately, can sometimes be a bit difficult.
Did you try all of the suggestions offered?

The greyed out buttons are on the top left and top right of the XnView MP program 1 looks like a folder with a green down arrow. I am trying get 10yr old Pictures on Disk into my Mac from the CD.
Your post that I am referring to was from 2016 I believe.

If all you need to do is copy the files, you should be able to do that by following the instructions here: https://www.dummies.com/computers/p...

Good luck with the MAC. I know it can be quite an adjustment after working with Windows...it's not so intuitive...

I do not use a Mac, so I do not know how you transfer files from a CD to your hard drive.
Possibly just drag & drop or some type of Copy & Paste.
Hopefully a Mac user will pop in and offer a solution.

What happens when you try to view one of the .sfw files in XnView?

There is a note in the jonesrh.info site under XnView:

To see the .sfw, .#nn, and .pwp files, you might need to check "Display all image file types" in Tools / Options / General / Operations, then click OK.

See how that works for you.
