Forum Question: Spotlight Searches for Device Make

Hi Gary,

I have two files in a directory.

When I do Get Info (%I) on each of the two files, they both show “Device make” as “SONY”.

When I then do Find (%F) on the directory, Spotlight comes up.

I then select “Device make” and “contains” and “SONY”, but only one of the files shows up.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for all the help.

    It doesn’t sound like you are doing anything wrong. It is hard to tell what might be the problem. Are you also searching with something in the name/content field at the top? What happens if you try a similar thing elsewhere?
    Short of having an expert look over your shoulder, you’ll just have to experiment and try things to see what might be giving these results and why.
