Hi David,
The problem with your files could still be the resource fork is incorrectly
formed. Try the utilities for autotyping which I made 10 years ago and can
still be found at my previous employer's web site

Hope it works, but no guarantees...

Subject: Digital Files on CQPro

Greetings!  I am having a problem with which BD was unable to help.  We are
large datafiles on our Canto and Arias.  Most of the investigators want to
analyze the
data files using their existing copies of CellQuest Pro.  When we transfer
them to the
Macs (via sneaker- or ethernet), the OS shows the files are FCS files and
that CQPro is
the default app to open them, but of course, they are ghosted out when
trying to open
them from within cellquest.  FACSConvert fails due to the size of the files.
Does anyone
have a workaround for this short of telling them to buy
