I'm headed out of state Monday night for a coyote hunt and I'd really like to get this fixed ASAP. Thanks for any help. I never learn, don't make any changes at the last minute, but I thought this was rather simple.

I just added four sequence files to my Fury and now the Sequence Listing on the TX500 is garbage:

I did the following:
1) I did a backup of all the files to my Mac
2) I created the new .seq files as plain text. I can type out these files and they look correct, just as the original .seq files on put on the unit by AllPredator. I'm a computer professional programmer and very familiar with MAC.
3) I made sure S05 through S08 were not present.
4) I copied the new files to the fury directory. I had a finder window open to the fury directory and could see the new files pop into place. I even typed them out (MAC less command) and they appeared correctly.
5) I dismounted the furry by clicking the dismount icon next to the fury drive in the finder window.
6) I replaced the battery in the fury and powered it up.
7) I powered up the TX-500 and followed Section 8.4 in the Fury manual:
Downloading New Playlist to TX-500. That seemed to work correctly.

The result when I press SEQ button is a garbled listing:
It looks like:
PRESS SEQUENCE 0-9
JACK TS05 LIGHTNING
S04 LIGHTN
AT S03 COY
ED BOX S02
S06 DSG COTTONTAIL S
S05 LIGHTNING JACK

Selecting one of these with SEQ - 6 caused the TX-500 to freeze and required a power-off to get it back to life.

Here are the .seq files as seen by the Mac (in my backup directory):
Original Files:
Macintosh:FoxPro-NewSeq dont45$ ls -l ../S0*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 dont45 dont45 85 Feb 9 2010 ../S00 Gray Fox.seq
-rwxrwxrwx 1 dont45 dont45 133 Feb 9 2010 ../S01 Red Fox.seq
-rwxrwxrwx 1 dont45 dont45 127 Feb 9 2010 ../S02 Bobcat.seq

-rwxrwxrwx 1 dont45 dont45 91 Feb 9 2010 ../S04 Crow.seq
New Files I created:

total 32

Here is the fury drive mounted on my Mac as a USB drive:
What I see different is the @ following the file privs.
I'm not sure what this is. I did a test reset of file privs to 777 (for unix guys), which is what the rwxrwxrwx is, with chmod 777 S08* and the @ did not go away, so it's something else.
Any ideas?

I removed my new .seq files which have the @ and re-ran the TX-500 upload and the menu is now back to normal.
The @ seems to be the problem. I'm research what that is.
PS I'm really a Unix / Linux guy. I don't recall ever seeing this in unix, so it may be Mac related? I'll keep you posted. Any ideas?
Thanks

Resolved!
I recreated the files and used the vi editor to enter my data. Although I have not fully understood the explanations of the @ I found on the web, it has to do with file attributes. A big clue is the icon used in the file browser. With this correct everything works correctly including correct sequence file menu on the FX-500.
