OS X :: Won't Drag And Drop Files In Hard Drive

Dec 10, 2010

So I have a friend who is a pc who gave me his hp hard drive with simple save, one of those hard drives with software that com pies things automatically. When I plug it in it show up fine and I can look in the folder and I have read write access as you would expect on any hard drive. But when I try to drop stuf in I can't, and I obviously can't reformat it because he needs to use it. Any idea to work around it or what may cause this issue?

Hardware :: ITunes Unable To Create New Library On External Drive / Unable To Drag Drop Files

Dec 7, 2010

I have a brand new MBP. I have a 1tb external drive with 250gb's of music. I have it attached to my mac via USB. I CANNOT GET ITUNES TO CREATE A NEW LIBRARY ON THE EXTERNAL DRIVE. I CANNOT DRAG AND DROP OR ADD FILE/FOLDER.

But get this, I hook it up to my old Dell and I can do whatever I want. I am friggin pissed that I spent all this money on Mac equip and can't get it going. You may have seen my other post where I posed my issue of: 1tb ethernet drive hooked to airport extreme. Above mentioned 1tb hooked up to back of it via usb. I am completely unable to copy, move, or add files using my mac. But guess what. my pc handles it easily and quickly.

Hardware :: External DVD Burner OS 10.1.5 - Can Drag And Drop Files

May 21, 2008

On my G4 800MHZ Power PC I run OS 10.1.5 while running OS 9 in the background - I never upgraded my system out of FEAR - I publish 2 monthly magazines and have never been crazy enough to take the step.I have just encountered a HUGE PROBLEM because my superdrive has decided not to burn any type of DVD I have purchased - I HAVE PURCHASED THEM ALL. and it just does nothing when I put the disk in. What I am hoping to find is an external DVD burner that will run using OS 10.1.5 - I am happy burning through the finder - I do not need any fancy software just a drive that will work and allow me to mount the DVD so I can drag and drop files.

OS X :: Won't Let Me Drag And Drop Files Into A Topic Folder

Oct 23, 2010

I'm not too sure what forum this fits in.I'm looking for suggestions for a work-around solution.My files are beyond chaotic. I want to search document contents for a topic (that I have hundreds of files on, but all over the place) using the finder. Then, I want to be able to drag and drop all the files into a topic folder. But, the search/finder window does not permit drag-and-drop functionality.

To me, this is hugely frustrating. It would be the easiest way for me to organize my mad mad files.I'm looking for suggestions for how I can do this? I'm on MacBook Pro OS 10.6.4

OS X :: Drag And Drop Few Files To A Folder Created On-The-Fly?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm pretty new to mac and a pro windows user. It's not been a month since I bought my first mac and now I'm feeling so comfortable with it.

I have a basic question on how to select a few files, drag and drop it into a new folder in the same folder level

For example, In windows I do this
1. Select few files in C:Temp
2. Cut those
3. Create a new folder and rename it C:TempNewTemp
4. Right click the folder and Paste it.

This is what I do in Mac now
1. Choose the files to be moved into a new folder (When I'm about to drag it, I remember that I've not created the new folder! Grr..)
2. Create a new folder and all my selection is gone
3. Now reselect all the files again and drop it to the new folder (Phew!)

Am I missing the cut feature in finder??? I know that 'Cut' is not much required in mac since everything works on DragNDrop.

I'm not sure whether there is any workaround for people like me who are used to selecting the files before creating a target folder. I'm sure that there should be something which can help me create a folder onthefly while dragging the files and keeping the selection intact.

Mac Mini :: Can't Drag And Drop Photo Files From Downloads Folder

Mar 11, 2012

After downloading a photo, I'm only able to drag it from the Downloads folder and drop it to my Desktop or another location about half the time. Often, I must open Downloads in the Finder to drag and drop. The Finder option always works. Is there a preference setting I need to change so that dragging and dropping from Downloads is always available?

Intel Mac :: Can't Drag And Drop To Move Photos?

May 26, 2012

So I've just about run out of memory on my MAC, actually, I have!  I was able to delete some things and it's already functioning much better.  What is taking up so much space are my photos.  I have an external drive I would like to move them all to and everything I look up says it's as easy as a drag and drop. The only problem is I'm unable to drag and drop. Nothing at all happens when I try to do that. I've tried it off of Finder with just one item and nothing will move at all.

IMac (Intel) :: Moving Files To External Drive Not Creating Hard Disk Space

Sep 2, 2014

My 500gb iMac (purchased April 2010) is about at capacity.  350gb of space is taken up by home movies (.mov) in iMovie.  I bought an external hard drive and have moved about 200gb over to that drive. 

After transfer, I deleted the original Events off iMovie and emptied the trash.  I checked in both iMovie and in Finder and no longer see those files present on the Mac.   

I thought this was going smooth and everything worked perfectly, but….when i went to check how much storage space i created on the Mac, the amount of available space barely budged (i moved 200gb of data to the new drive and i created about 30gb of space on the Mac). 

Are these "deleted" files hidden somewhere and I need to go delete from somewhere else?  How do I make sure I get back the storage that i need?

Intel Mac :: Override "All My Files" And Restrict Search To A Single External Hard Drive?

May 24, 2012

I've got 3 large external hard-drives--WD, Seagate, iOmega--connected to my iMac to contain a sprawling music collection. I'm working on deduping, etc., but each attempt to search a single hard drive results in my search being shunted to "All My Files." I'll watch the Finder each time I enter a search term in the window of one drive, and upon entering a syllable in a drive's Search box, the area is expanded to include every folder in at least 4 different hard drives (inclding my iMac's).

I'm not sure if the problem is overly large drives (500 GB to 1.5 TB) or some default setting, probably associated with Spotlight, that interprets each and every search as, basically, "everything Spotlight can conceivably see." Needless to say, my cleaning project is going slow--primarily because I can't work "one room at a time."

OS X :: Cannot Transfer Files From Mac To External Hard Drive

Nov 18, 2010

My friend wanted some files to be transferred to his external hard drive from my Mac. As he is a Windows user, I guess his hard drive is formatted for Windows as well. As I plug in the hard disk in my Mac, I can't transfer the files. It says something like "the disk cannot be modified". So, please help me on how can I transfer this files from my Mac and if I do format it to work with the Mac, will it work for Windows later?
