Just as a point of reference, I released a CD-based app a few months ago 
with all the graphics as jpegs and they all work fine directly from the 
CD-ROM under OS9.

Your problem may lay elsewhere. Are your graphics imported into the 
stacks or are they referenced? 

Also, which program did you create the jpegs in? I remember a strange 
problem with certain jpegs where when created in Photoshop, they wouldn't 
display in Rev. I had to read them into GraphicsConverter and save them 
back as jpegs. Then for some reason, Rev had no problem with them.

Of course, this isn't much better than converting them to PNG. :-(

You might try this with one of the jpegs that got "lost" to see if this 
is the case.

Maybe the RR team can comment on Rev's sensitivity to certain jpeg
