I recently pieced together a Color Classic with an LC575 motherboard and 68040 CPU with math coprocessor. Everything is working great, although I am having a very difficult time with expanding/unsitting .SIT archive files. I have downloaded a few apps in .SIT format and have tried unsitting them on the Color Classic with UNSTUFFIT versions 1.5 thru 3.5 to no avail. Even though the files I am trying to unsit are named .SIT, the UNSTUFFIT programs will not even show them in their file menus! What gives?! Help!!!!!!!!

I know that I could unsit them on my main G3 mac and then run them on my CC, but I'm working with the limited space of floppy drives.

The Stuffit compression forma

The Stuffit compression format changed a few years back and is not backwards compatible, so you may need to get Stuffit Expander 5.x. you can get version 5 here.
Version 5 is the last 68K compatible version.

BTW, you don't need to post your question in more than one area here... it'll get read.
