Aug 16, 2009
my printer stopped working (os 10.4.11) some people told me to delete the printer and then re-add it in the prefs section. well, deleting it was simple enough but now i can't re-add it. i hit the add button and it does nothing. why is this happening, and how can i fix it?
I was having problems printing from my Canon LBP6000.¬† Print jobs remained held in the queue.¬† I uninstalled and reinstalled the Mac CAPT Ve r340 driver from Canon's website, no improvement.¬†The printer works fine with my Windows laptop.¬†I found an option to remove all printers from the Print preferences section. I can't remember how I did this, but all printers were removed.¬† I reinstalled the above driver, but now in the 'print & scan' - 'add printer' section, I have no printer options.¬† And no idea how to get printer options.
Is it possible to move an item from the "More" section of the Contextual Menu up to the main section? In the attached screen shot you can see an item "Snag Path Unix" at the very bottom. I use this function about 100 times a day and it is very inconvenient that I have to go through a submenu for that.
I have a Canon LBP5360 laser printer connected via USB cable to my MacPro running 10.6.8.I have downloaded the latest UFR II driver. (UK Version)I am trying to connect to the printer but the printer is not¬† appearing in my Print/Fax Preferences.When I click the box "More Printers" under the Default printer the drop down box gives me a heading "Canon IPv6 (UFRII) with the option to add or cancel. (The add is highlighted). But there are no printers showing in the box. Nothing.Is there a problem with my Mac setup or maybe a setting in my printer?
I've tried everything have redownloaded drivers, no luck, when I go into 'print and scan' panel and select add priner, no printers appear in the list... I noticed that I have an Epson printer RX690 icon in my techtool pro rescued items folder ? this is the epson printerproxy? but can't put this away and don't know where is would go and if this would make a difference.
I have two printers connected to my iMac (10.7.3) and I am trying to enable printer sharing for my MacBook Air to utilize the iMac's printers.¬† On the iMac, I go to System Prefrences > Sharing and check Printer Sharing and I ensure that both printers are being shared.¬† Everything is checked, but the second I close the System Prefrences window, the printer sharing stops working.¬† I go back into System Prefrences and the Printer Sharing box is unchecked.
My Wifi printer is definitely connected to my Network but when I try to connect it to my iMac using the System Preferences it does not show in the available printers window. How to get connected? Just changed to BT Infinity and installed the McAfee Security package could this be the cause?
I've used Handbrake to rip a dvd to my Macbook and put it in itunes. This only ripped the main video, which is what I was expecting, but is it possible to rip the bonus sections as well (either as seperate videos or all in one video with the main one)? I'm going to give Mac the Ripper a go for backing up my dvds because as far as I can tell this will give me a file that will be just like the dvd with the menus and the bonus sections. Is that right? If handbrake can't do what I'm asking, can I add the file Mac the Ripper creates to iTunes or would I need to use Mac the Ripper to create a back up of a dvd and Handbrake to make a copy to use in iTunes?
Tried searching for this but unfortunately could not find anything. How do I get rid of this purple shaded area of my disk and restore my disk to full size? It's supposed to be 320 GBs. I attempted to delete a Bootcamp partition but it didn't seem to delete correctly. I understand that I will not have 320 GBs free, but shouldn't I have more than 297 GBs on a brand new UMBP?
I'd been planning on getting a 2TB Time Capsule to replace my old 1TB one, but kept putting it off. I was at Best Buy today and happened to walk over by the Mac section, and saw a sign saying that the 2TB Time Capsule was only $249.99. Needless to say, I bit the bullet. When I got up to the register, one of the girls rang me up, and the guy next to her was sort of in awe at how much the discount was, so it seems like this was pretty brand new. I asked them if this was happening in all Best Buy stores, and they said that they believed that this was the case. Oddly, only the 2TB ones were discounted, and not the 1TB. So this made the 2TB about $85 cheaper than the 1TB, since at Best Buy, the 1TB sells for $334.00
For some reason, collections/videos that appear in the iTunes U section cannot be sorted by name. Even if you add a sortname to the videos, they can't seem to be sorted. What gives? I've had a few things that came in out of order (it looks like some files were re-released and with about 50 items, it makes it a chore to hunt down the correct file to view.
I bought a macbook pro the last september it was sell with osx lion.The first time i went to appstore i saw osx lion under the purchased with installed button But now is disappeared. When i go to osx lion page the button shows the price.How can i fix this problem?
My daughter has a dance project in school. She wants a song to start at the beginning, stop at 1:05, start again at 2:07 and go to the end. I tried creating a seperate file so I could do starts and stops on both to do this, but the playlist sees it as a duplicate.
I downloaded and installed the updates for the OS and now there is no "shared" section in the finder at all. Shared items are checked in the preferences. Selecting "go" and "network" doesn't do anything. I checked in the system preferences and the name of the workgroup is correct. The other computers in the workgroup can see my shared folders, but I can no longer see anything shared.
I have an unsecured wireless network in my home. As guests come and go with laptops, they connect to the network. All OK. That is, I'm used to seeing transitory nodes on my network. Some time ago, a Bonjour computer appeared in the Shared section in the Sidebar of a Finder window. I have no idea what it is. When I click on it, it says XXXX YYYYYY's Computer, connected as: Guest. There is one folder there which, in turn, contains another folder named Drop Box. Now, I use DropBox on my system, to keep my 3 Macs in sync on a few items. What is this mystery guest? Why is it here? How can I get rid of it?

In my Finder window the Shared Section is missing. Its even checked under Finder>Preferences>Sidebar. Do I need to edit something in my Library. If so, what file? in what folder? I rebooted, reset, etc to no avial.
There are two 17" G4 powerbooks in the refurb section, and I was thinking of picking one up. What is the difference between the two? It says one has DDR333 SDRAM and the other is DDR2 PC2-4200 SDRAM. what is the difference? Which one to get? The only reason I would spend that on an older powerbook and not a new intel, is that all of my pro apps need to be used natively, and I don't plan to upgrade to CS3 anytime soon. I also use flash, final cut and shake, so new versions could get pricey! Plus rosetta doesn't support Final cut.
Network Section in Finder shows "nstest.tzo.com". I've never used any service at this address or installed any questionable programs. Has anyone ever seen this sort of thing appear in their networks or know could I get rid of it? Spotlight search shows nothing except the google searches I did once I saw the entry.
