IMac (Intel) :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.4) Memory Card Reader Not Detected

Sep 7, 2014

I have an iMac, early 2009 OS X 10.9.4. Up until a few months ago I didn't have a problem with my memory card reader. The computer no longer detects the memory card reader. There is no indication by the computer that the memory card read has been plugged in. I bought a new memory card reader (different brand). The computer does not detect the new memory card reader. I have tried rebooting the computer. That did not make a difference. I tried unplugging all the USB devices plugged into the computer. That did not work

IMac :: Unable To Open IMac Memory Cover - The Screw Won't Turn.

Oct 25, 2009

I don't know what the deal is. I'm trying to install 2 sticks of 2GB into my 7,1 iMac, and the screw just won't turn. I'm using a standard Phillips head, and nothin' doin'. The screw is now starting to strip, so I guess I'm going to have to take this into the friggin' Apple Store just to have them open the thing.

IMac :: Which Memory Did I7 Use

Nov 17, 2009

Curious as I want to match the speed and pre-order another 4gb of ram (2x2gb) and didn't know what speed they went with?

I assume its as easy as the old iMac's as far as a screw underneath the screen and snap them in?

Also just curious about if their was a brand name on the memory they used - not that it matters just curious?

I ordered base 4gb ram and I am guessing its 2x2gb and I here it has 4 slots so I will buy another 2x2.

IMac :: Using, SSD And Virtual Memory - How To Fix It

Sep 6, 2010

I have an 40 GB SSD installed on my 2010 iMac 27" with a 2TB HDD hosting the users folder. I was running Transmission and encoding a DVD when I was told that I am out of Virtual Memory and must restart.

My question is: will using the SSD for Virtual Memory affect its performance down the line (as they should not be written to too much.) If so, how can I change my virtual memory storage location? *Xupport didn't work.

IMac :: Using 2 Or 3 Memory Modules?

Nov 18, 2009

While browsing around I've stumbled over a few references to things like "tri-channel memory" and such. From what I understand (not that good with these things) some computer architectures / CPUs are optimized for using 3 memory modules, and some for using pairs (2 or 4).

I just read some benchmark tests of the i7 with different memory configurations, and the 12Gb was is most cases on par or better than all the others when it came to performance, even better than the 16Gb one. Is the new iMac (i7) best suited to use 3 memory modules?

Intel Mac :: Increase Memory From 4GB To 8 Or More

Feb 15, 2012

I just bought my mac last month, and was thinking about down the line increasing the memory from 4GB to 8 or 16. But when I looked on Amazon, all I could find was memories and in the reviews everyone was talking about Macbooks, not iMacs. Could I use the same memory? 

Here's my system information, if it helps: Processor  2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory  4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Graphics  AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b) and:    Model Name:          iMac  Model Identifier:     iMac12,1  Processor Name:          Intel Core i5  Processor Speed:     2.7 GHz  Number of Processors:          1  Total Number of Cores:          4  L2 Cache (per Core):          256 KB  L3 Cache:          6 MB  Memory:          4 GB

Intel Mac :: Can't See Memory Stick

Jun 10, 2012

My company started to use encryption software on our computers in work. They use PeeCee, I have an iMac 3.2GHz Intel. I bought a 16GB Tough N Tiny Verbatim Memory Stick.The encryption software used was TrueCrypt as you can use it both on Mac and PeeCee.  The problem is I can see my memory stick on a PeeCee but not on my Mac. The IT is indifferent to my issue. He reformatted the stick a number of times. Says it comes up on the Mac in his workshop, however, it doesn't come up on every Mac computer in work. And more importantly it doesn't come up on my Mac.  

I have reformatted to FAT32, reformatted to Mac, given it to the IT guyS!!, updated all software on all computers, I've used terminal to locate it, I've used Disk Utility to locate it. is it my Mac's fault (other memory sticks come up), is it my sticks fault (it did work once, and works on all PeeCee and some Macs), should I burn it and buy a new one (theres nothing of any importance on it?

Hardware :: Adding More Memory To An IMac?

Jun 7, 2010

How should I go about adding more memory to my 2008 iMac? I currently have 1gb and I would like to upgrade to 4-6gb, depending on the price. I've heard OWC is pretty good all around, but it appears to be that they're only compatible up to 2007 imacs, so I'm assuming that wouldn't work for my computer. What's a good, reliable, and cost-efficient brand that will be compatible for the computer I have? and how would I install it?

IMac :: More Memory - Processor Choices?

Oct 26, 2010

I am finally upgrading to an iMac and I need some help. I was looking at the 21in ones and I have a choice of processors 3.06 Ghz and the 3.2 Ghz (and even the i5 3.6 Ghz). Should I pay the extra $300 and move from the 3.06 Ghz to the 3.2? For this computer, I will be doing photo stuff and some video. Family things - nothing for work or commercial use. Or should I opt for more memory instead and not worry about the processor. From studing Apple, processor choice seems to help keep the machine current (or pertinent) longer than anything else.
The low level iMac seems ok, but should I bump up to the next level machine.

Im looking to purchase a 4GB stick of ram for my Late 2009 27 iMac 3.06Ghz. I know it requires PC-3-8500 204-Pin DDR3-1066MHZ Small -- does anyone know of a good place online (or otherwise) that sells this for cheap? I DID find one online site, that would sell is for $77.30 USD... and that doesnt include any DUTY fee's if any would apply.

IMac :: Finding Memory Compatibility

Jan 19, 2009

Ok i just want to make triple sure that this ram will indeed work in my imac 20" 2.0 (late 07 model) which uses ddr2 pc5300 667 200 pin ram.

The only thing that is striking me odd is that this is the only ram on neweggs site that seems to be compatible with an iMac that doesn't actually show up under their Apple > Mac Memory category

IMac :: Right Memory With Correct Speed?

Mar 15, 2009

My iMac is from 2008, the first 3.06GHz version one (with Nvidia 8800 gfx card etc). When I got this one, I read somewhere that this was the first iMac to get the bus speed 1066MHz. When I look under information, it confirms this: "Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz". I instantly upgraded the memory to 4 GB from a local computer shop back then. When I look in the information, under memory I have: "Type: "Speed: 800 MHz"". Do I have too slow memory for the computer? I mean it runs fine and everything but I'm just wondering if I could potentially have faster memory in this computer. Would it make a big difference if this was the case? When looking in computer stores I can't really find memory that has the label SO-DIMM DDR2 - 1066MHz, so maybe I have the right one?

OS X :: IMac G3 Software And Memory Update?

Oct 19, 2009

I have a 10yr old G3 iMac, running X.3.9 and Classic, have 192mb memory and 105GB free space on HD. My question is what is the latest OS version I can install. I know I will need to add more memory but thats not a problem. Machine runs good, sometime slow with a lot of beachballs but dosen't freeze up or crash. Need newer OS so I can download some files I want and plan to get into the 21 century early next year with a new machine, if they release a new generation of the iMac or come out with a notebook with a numerical keyboard. Of course depending on the price of the software I may just bite the bullet and hold on to what I have till spring.

IMac :: Confused By 3rd Party Memory

Nov 5, 2009

Just ordered a 24" 3.06 GHz refurb from Apple with 4Gb RAM - �700 off. It clearly states on the product info page that it can take up to 8Gb RAM. I visited Crucuial, and using their Memory Wizard thingy, selecting this machine it says that 4Gb is the limit. Who's right? Also, not sure how many slots there are in this machine. If I want 8 Gb am I going to have to ditch the 2 x 2 Gb to buy 2 x 4Gb??

IMac :: How Many Memory Slots In The 3.06 27 Incher

Nov 17, 2009

How many memory slots are in the 3.06 27 incher, and how many slots are taking up on the basic setup? If there are four slots, are all four slots filled with 1gb cards? Im curious because I ordered my iMac from my job here, and I also ordered 2gb of memory, thinking I can go from 4gb to 6gb of ram. I was going to order a 4gb card, but it was 200 euros at my job. If anything, I will order a couple of more 2gb cards, but that all depends on the number of slots available/open.

IMac :: Setting Memory Configurations In I7

Mar 2, 2010

My question relates to memory configuration. If I buy it with the minimum 4 gig, I think that's 2 2 gig modules. Can I buy two third party (OWC or Crucial) 4 gig modules and add them, giving me a total of 12 gig, or would have to get rid of the original 2 2 gig parts? If it's possible to mix the 4 gig pairs with the 2 gigs, will there be any negative performance issues related to that? If I can mix them, do I need to worry about who I buy the 4 gig parts from? Lastly, any positive or negative comments on OWC or Crucial (or other suggestions) for memory in general?

IMac :: Did Install Memory In The Best Slots

Apr 27, 2010

I have a 27" iMac and recently picked up the latest model MacBook. I also picked up a 4Gb (2x2) RAM. I placed the 4Gb in the MacBook and decided to place that 2GB from the MB in my iMac to boost it to 6GB.

Here is my question, did I place the RAM in the best slots, assuming there is such a thing as best slots. I remember from the old day of PC that there was a strict order for placement else I may not get the most out of the additional RAM. It does register as 6GB when I click on 'About This Mac'. Below is a diagram and screen shot to show exactly what I did.
