I have recorded CD on Mac in 2001 (TIF, EPS).

But I cannot open files from this CD on Windows.

TIF files are not in valid format (first 2 bytes neither 4D4D nor 4949). But in file I found "TIFF8BIM" at the beginging and end of file ("EPSF8BIM" for EPS).

How can I convert these files on Windows? Thanks...

  • Welcome to Ask Different! :) Could I ask you to add a bit more info. For example, how are you trying to open the files (i.e. directly from the CD, or are you copying them first to your Windows computer)? Also, what software have you tried so far? Finally, do the images still have a file extension at the end of their filenames? If so, what is it? – Monomeeth May 17 '18 at 8:13
  • The files were copied from CD to local disk. I try different software (a lot of viewers, Photoshop CS3). The extension for TIFF is "tif". I try to rename it (to .bin .sit) and use StuffIt Expander for Windows - no success – Andrey B. May 17 '18 at 8:36
  • Ah, okay, I was going to also suggest you try the Stuffit Expander for Windows route to decompress and/or decode the files. Have you got access to a Mac? Have you tried any other systems? – Monomeeth May 17 '18 at 8:38
  • It is a header of file - «Н T Sѓю Ps@ ^ * ·ф’‘·ф’ЏTIFF8BIM – Andrey B. May 17 '18 at 8:39
  • Warning: StuffIt Compression Message: Unknown format – Andrey B. May 17 '18 at 8:42
