^^ Basically says it. I just installed Leopard today and plugged my touch in for the first time since then. Itunes won't detect my iPod though. iPhoto tries to import pictures from it and it charges but iTunes won't detect it.
I'm new to the whole Apple scene, been using (and still am using) Windows up to this point but now that I've saved up some cash I want to make the switch. Running a 4-year old Windows desktop and 1-year old Windows netbook right now, sick and tired of this!
I'm a photographer, so I need a computer that can edit photos and video and not just to browse. I spend 5 days a week at my University and the weekends at home, so there is a little issue with the mobility. I have over 30GB of music by the way. Budget allowing, I can get the [ MC511ZP/A - iMac 27"/2.8 ghz Intel Core i5 /4 GB/1 TB HD/ATI Radeon HD 5750 with 1 TB ] as an iMac, or the [ MC373LL/A - MBP 15" 2.66 Ghz i7/4 GB/ 500 GB HD/ 512 MB GDDR3 Intel HD ] if I were to get a Macbook Pro.
Given the circumstances, would it be more reasonable for me to get the MBP+iPad so that I could have a powerful computer I could easily move between my two houses while at the same time having a super-mobile tablet to use in school and for non-heavy duty computing activities, the MBP+iPod Touch which would be the same concept as the iPad but then I'd have to use the MBP for e-mailing and web browsing and just stick to having mobile music, or the 27" iMac which gives me the most bang for the buck and a really pretty screen while having the iPad as my mobile computer although it would mean I would have to go 2-3 days a week with only my iPad as a computer excepting long vacations when I would just take my iMac back to our family house?
i just bought a apple ibook g3 used..everything seems to work just fine except when we hooked the apple ipod to it and it doesnt detect it for some reason..i went into the preferences in itunes and went to the ipod tab..it says no ipod detected..
I just installed Office 2008 on Mac OS X 10.5.8, but I can't seem to get the system to detect Office updates; it won't even detect Office 2008 SP1. Every time I try to get Office to detect new updates, it gives me the following message:
There are no updates available for your Microsoft software at this time. Please check again later.
which is funny because there obviously ARE new updates. I know that I can simply download the updates manually from the Microsoft support site (which I did to install SP1), but I am curious as to what the source of the problem is, and if it can be fixed. I have had Office 2008 installed on the same machine before, but had to reinstall it. Before reinstalling, it detected updates just fine. Now it won't!
I also installed the most recent version of Microsoft Autoupdate 2.1.1, but it didn't seem to work.
I have a Macbook and I just bought an iPhone 3G and it seems my mac is totally not responding to my iPhone.I have the latest updates but to no avail.I also have also just loaded intego virusbarrier 5. I heard that it is interfering with the sync of both devices. So how do resolve this problem without having to erase and re-install my harddisk
recently the harddisk of my macbook pro crashed and I had it replaced with a SSD thinking I could use the old harddisk as an external but now it seems like the crashed harddisk cannot be detected by my macbook. What should I do?
I find all the negative news about the death of the Mac at the hands of the iDevices to be rather entertaining but founded on a clear lack of understanding of how Apple really sells products.
One only needs to google "growth in mac sales" to see about 4 million headlines expounding the incredible growth in Mac Sales over the last few years, particularly since the introduction of the iPod, then the iPhone.
Is it not plainly obvious that the way to increase Mac sales is to attract new customers to Apple with killer iDevices with the expectation that they might strongly consider a Mac next time they upgrade their computer?
Almost everyone I know, who now owns a Mac, first purchased an iPod or an iPhone, and to a person said to me "Wow, Apple makes some incredible stuff, I need to check out a Mac". In the last couple of months, many of my colleagues have purchased their first Apple product: an iPad - and are now converted Apple faithful that will most certainly buy a Mac to sync it with in the coming months.
So everyone who loves Mac's should love iDevices and the focus that Apple puts on them. It's the iDevices that attract customers and sell Macs. And increased Mac Sales, means more better product for us.
my IPad is a first gen, 64G and my IPod touch is a 3rd gen, also 64G.
when I try to sync my IPad it keeps saying "The iPad cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 14.39 GB required)."
There is still 20 gigs of free space left on the IPad and 247 gigs left on my hardrive so, I don't know why it's saying that and when I plug in my IPod touch it says it cannot sync because an unknown error occurred (13019)
recently I had to get my computer wiped and this is the first time trying to sync my devices since then. I had to re-download everything. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Also can IPads be bugged? mine constanly crashes and sometimes it randomly opens a different app usually when I'm in safari. It also constanly freezes lot's of times in ITunes or watching movies the screen turns black.
oh and I have a Mac from 2007, with leapord, I'm pretty sure my ITunes account is up to date.
I have two extra buttons on my logitech mouse: a button on the side and the scroll wheel button. I set up the logitech control center and set commands for those buttons, but nothing happens when i press them. Anyone know how to fix this?
I just purchased my new macbook pro and I wanted to know if it was possible to use the laptop as a router so that my PS3 could connect through it. I followed the steps someone else mentioned:
(1) Open System Preferences on your MacBook Pro, and open "Sharing"
(2) On the left column, click Internet Sharing and check the box
(3) Use the drop-down menu to select Ethernet in "Share your connection from..."
(4) Check the box next to Airport in the section "To computers using..."
(5) Close System Preferences and open the Airport menu from your Toolbar (top)
(6) Click "Create Network", add a name to your Computer-to-Computer network
(7) Leave the Channel as Automatic, add a password if you require (make sure your PS3 is compatible with your chosen level of security), click Ok.
(8) Connect an ethernet cable between your broadband modem and MacBook Pro
(9) Turn on your PS3 and perform your usual setup when connecting to a wireless network
I have an Ipod, and it did detect the new connection that was setup; however, my PS3 and my Windows Mobile phone did not detect it. Is there a reason for this? Do only Apple devices identify this connection?
I was wondering if ipod touch and iphone accessories work with the new ipad.Things like 3.5mm headsets, usb wall and car chargers, microphones, etc. Basically everything that plugs into your ipod and iphone.
i just got an iMac a few weeks ago and i used migration assistant to move everything from my macbook pro. but ever since then when i hook up my ipad and ipod they dont show up in itunes, they're charging though. im going to reinstall itunes now. any advice on how to make it work if this reinstallation doesnt work ?
I cant seem to find a straight answer anywhere, some say this others that. I have 2 iphones 1 pad 1 apple tv 1imac all under 1 account. would like to get a second imac and want to know if I can keep everything under the same account. Do the phones pads and pods count towards your 5 count?
Created vuescan for my scanner, since microtek stopped making drivers. Can't figure out the problem. I can't find answers anywhere online, and I need this scanner working yesterday. I got it to work on my laptop since that's still running 10.7.3, but that's no practical. Did 10.7.4 upgrade do that screwed this all up?
I just got a new mac pro dual quad core to replace my single dual core for work. Im trying to pull my Nividi Quadro 4500 out of my old machine that i had installed by apple in to my new machine. i get it all hoked in right but when i turn on my new machine it dosnt detect the display. Any suggestions?
I installed 2 ne w Optical drives in a 2008 3,1 MacPro Quadcore.After installation and booting up, the system profiler failed to show ANY optical drives and I was unabel to open/eject the drives naturally. I then unplugged the bottom one and rebooted and the top drive (still plugged in ) worked. I then shut down and unplugged the top drive and plugged in the bottom drive - rebooted and now the BOTTOM drive is recognized. When BOTH drives are plugged in , the system fails to show either of them.So when individually plugged in it's fine but when bith are plugged in neither of the drives are detected or operate.
