Yikes, everyone. I am in the same boat, and appreciate the thread. Just bought a new computer, first since 2013, and not doing Migration Assistant so it may take forever…. I was certainly hoping not to have 2 computers in the end….

Hi All -
I am beginning to seriously regret upgrading to Catalina on my Mac. I have just discovered that I cannot mount a number of my old disks, and some that I can mount, I cannot open the files... specifically the old .pcd photo disks. They won't open in Photoshop CC, and Catalina won't let me install my old versions of Pshop (CS) which WILL open those files.

I have found a program that apparently will open .pcd files and convert to .psd (pcdMagic for the Mac). There's a free trial, the full program costs $79.

Does anyone know of another solution? I may be able to fire up one of our ancient computers, that I am sure still has Pshop CC on it, but I'm not sure I can then transfer those files.

Grrrr.
