Hardware :: How Can I Read My MAC Formatted IPod On A PC?
May 5, 2005
My iPod is formatted MAC and I want to change it to be able to read it on a PC and add more music. How do I do this without losing my music? What software is available? Please explain fully, as my knowledge of computers and software is moderate, but not extensive.
I have a portable external hard drive formatted for mac and I want to be able to view my movies that are on it through my games console. I believe both consoles only read Fat 32 so what are my options to get the consoles to read the HD?
I have two computers: a Windows Vista based one and a Mac OS X. I take photos and view them on both computers. After I formatted the CD card and took photos on my DSLR I tried to view them on the Mac and get the following screen: If Repair Disk is unavailable, click Verify Disk. If the disk needs repairs, you'll be able to repair it from Recovery HD. If you have a Permission problem with a file installed by the Mac OS X installer, click Repair Disk Permissions.
Disk Description: Generic storage device media Write Status: Read/Write S.M.A.R.T Status: Not supported Partition Map Scheme: Master Boot Record Format: MS-DOS (Fat 32)
I suspect the last item is the culprit due to OS incompatibility and I am aware that there is a software program (Paragon) that can read both types of files. But in the meantime, can I recover the photo files using Repair Disk, or whatever? I don't want to lose the files if, by using Repair Disk, I wipe out the contents of the CF card.
I just got hit with a double whammy. :Imac running Panther did something odd to the it's external drive. That was formatted fat 32. I plan to see if anyone in the nearby computer repair class can recover those files, but in the meantime (days!) the gremlin also hit the macbook, putting it in range of a spill. So now the only backups I have are on the second external drive formatted with a mac format on the macbook. This one was done with 2 partitions, one for Time Machine, one for the stuff I was yanking over from the other hard drive.
So now I find that Imac can't even SEE the second drive. (Not that I expected it to see or recognize Time Machine, just the other part.) My macbook is on downtime until it gets checkup/cleaning (with all mac places nearby apparently closed thru New Years and classes I need it for starting right after) Does anyone know a way to get "Ye Old Imac" to see the other drive? Is there a driver or something? I know it's very hard to find older software (most online sites don't go back past Tiger), but it is a mac format for goodness sake! I can't even be 100% sure if it's something to do with a newer mac format for the external drive or "Ye Old Imac" is just being grumpy. It seems to see the other USB stuff but it has been known to lose touch with them.
I have an external drive that is still formatted for OSX journaled and I need to read it on my XP system. I used macdrive in the past but the demo expired and it will not let me try it again. Is there any free software out there that will let me do this? I do not want to pay $50 for software I will only use once.
Hey how you doin? I went last night to re-sync my ipod to my PC and I got the following error box ...."ipod disk could not be read from or written to" I just synced it two nights prior to this problem, what exactly is wrong with my ipod and how can I fix it?
I have an old macbook that has all my songs on, as well as my iPod. I have recently got an iMa which currently has no music on, how would I transfer the music from the iPod to the new iMac, or alternatively from the old Macbook to the iMac?
Just upgraded to the iPhone OS 3.0 on my 1st gen iPod Touch and when I turn the volume up whilst it's in the iPod Hi-Fi, the volume dips when I've finished turning it up... When I push the volume up again the volume slider on the iPod touch then moves down to where it dipped.it's quite hard to explain! Basically, when I turn the volume up to 50%, the sound dips to 25%.... the slider still shows 50% until I press the volume up button and it would move the slider to 25%. (If I wanted to play my music at 50% I would have to turn it up to 75% and wait for it to dip to 50%!)I have reset the iPod touch and restored it but the problem still exists. OS 1.0 and 2.0 didn't have this problem. Does this happen to anyone else? Is there a solution?
i just got a new mac and didnt want to migrate everything so that i could keep this new mac "clean" of my old stuff however im having a hell of a time transfering ical and address book over! Most importantly i got a new ipodtouch also and im wondering if anyone know how to transfer the stickie notes from my old ipod to new ipod?
My girlfriend and I attended the Toronto Raptors game last nightFor those of you from Toronto, we parked below the Novotel Hotel on the Esplande. Since both of us were coming from work we had are valuables in the trunk. (we both placed are stuff in the trunk prior to arriving at the location). Well when we arrived back to the car we noticed the back passenger side window was smashed in and the trunk was empty. We weren't the only ones who were robbed in that lot, there was at least one other car that was broken into according to the hotel staff. The police seem to think it was a drug addicts looking for items to sell for drugs and that it is not a coincidence that it was during a Raptors game. The lot has no cameras due to construction being done, so for those in Toronto who frequent Leafs or Raptors games do not park there, it's a cheap alternative but not worth the risk.
I have searched this forum site, and there is a specific app that was mentioned to rip music from your ipod to mac in which i think the first 1000 songs were free. I am having a hard time remembering the name of it, can someone help me out please?ipod to mac is not free as it asks for a registration code (unless I am doing something wrong)I believe it started with an x
My granddaughter has a formated iPod for windows and her computer crashed. The iPod is having problems. She would like to backup her music, but she doesn't have access to a computer. Can I use my iBook running Mac OSX 10.3.9? Is there any software that will let me do this for free? I would like to give her a DVD of her music if possible.
The drive in my G5 tower will read/write commercial or blank CDs and will read/write blank DVDs, however, it will not read most commercial DVDs. When I insert them it tries to read it then after a few seconds it just spits them back out. Occasionally commercial DVDs will read and mount fine, but this seems to be rare.
I just switched from Snow leopard to Lion and i don't like the way that Lion has the mail preview set up as a 3 column vertical format. I thought in Snow Leopard you could change the set-up so it's either horizontal or vertical, but I can't seem to find that option in Lion. I want to have the list of my email messages in the top, horizontal window and the preview of the selected message in a horizontal window below. Am I missing this option to change the view format from vertical to horizontal somewhere?
When I connect my external hard disk (Maxtor) to my Mac Book Pro, I am not able to copy/transfer files to it, though I can copy from it to my Mac. How do I change the permissions from Read Only to Read and Write?
My mac mini cant read DVD movies but can read Burned CD and Installers. I tried the DVD's with my macbook but works just fine. tried burning some files and it works as well. what do i need to do to fix my problem? do i need to update something or download some programs?
I know this is lame, but I searched and can't find a solution. When I click on a day in ical it says it is a Read-only calendar. I repaired permissions, but it still says read only. The strange part is, in the Get Info screen, it says Read-Write for all the users.
I'm buying an external hard drive to use as a backup for my MacBook but also as a network drive that all the computers connected to my router (Airport Extreme) can use. There are two MacBooks and two PCs that connect to the network. I only need my MacBook to be able to write to the hard drive but I need the two PCs to be able to access and use the files on the hard drive. I was going to get a 1TB external and give it two partitions. The first partition is going to be the Time Machine backup for my MacBook and the other will be accessed by all computers on the network. What format will the second partition need to be so that both MacBooks and both PCs can view and use the files? Also what external hard drive would you recommend?
