MacBook Air :: ITunes Not Connecting To IPhone - Pairing Record Missing

I used to have all my data on my MacBook and since I bought the Air I started transferring everything to it. Everything was fine until I tried to hook my iphone on the usb and sync it. The iphone drops the connection with the itunes and the whole syncing progress cancels. I've tried every possible advice I found in other forums but nothing worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled itunes, I tried installing earlier version of itunes, I restored my iphone (on my other mac), I manually deleted some itunes program files before reinstalling the new itunes....nothing nothing nothing. I keep getting error messages like:

"ITunes could not connect to the iphone because the pairing record is missing"
"Application AppleMobileDeviceHelper quit unexpectedly"
"ITunes could not connect to iphone because an invalid response was received from the device"
And every time i try to restore iphone from the air i get an error(6).....

While everything works great on the old Macbook, the Macbook Air seems to have problems connecting with the phone. The funny thing is that even if the connection between iphone and itunes drops, I can still manage to "see" the iphone from "iphoto" and import pics on my Air. I really don't know what's going on here and there seems to be no one that knows what I should do. Furthermore, when i plug my scanner on the air, it doesn't respond at all. It's as if the usb slot ain't powerful enough to connect with those devices. The scanner also works great on my old Macbook.

OS X :: Connecting And Pairing Airport Express To D Link Router?
Not sure if this is possible, I'm sure there's someone out there who would be able to tell me either way. I've got a D Link router thats plugged into my 50mb in my lounge. I'd like to put my airport express in my kitchen and pair them so its the same network. The reason for this is that I have my HIFI in the kitchen which will be plugged into my airport so I can use it as remote speakers for my itunes while I'm still connected to the 50mb and D Link. Is this possible?

ITunes :: Fully Syncing IPhone/MacBook Air?
I have had an iPhone for quite sometime and had iTunes on an old Windows laptop. About a week ago now, I purchased a MacBook Air and am now using this instead of my old laptop. But I am having trouble syncing everything, I'm clearly doing something wrong but I can't work out what it is. I have plugged my iPhone into the MacBook and I understand that pressing sync simply won't work, as it will try and put everything from this iTunes onto my iphone, thereby removing my iPhone stuff. I was told to click "Check for available downloads" but this just tries to download one silly app I got ages ago - nothing since then. It will just list this one download.The way I had imagined it would work, is that I press "Check for available downloads", this would bring everything to iTunes and then I can sync but obviously this is not the case.

ITunes :: Album Art Goes Missing When Transferring From Mac To IPhone With Conversion
I've noticed this since iTunes 10.6 where the album art on my music, iTunes purchased or imported, doesn't get transferred over to my iPhone 4S (5.0.1) nor my iPhone 4 (5.1) with "Convert higher bitrate songs to XXX kbps AAC" checked in iTunes. 

I've tried transferring with Lion and Windows 7 under Bootcamp (both OS are using the latest iTunes 10.6.1) and both are doing the same thing. 

Is this a bug that Apple is missing (anywhere to send bug reports)?

ITunes Mac :: Files Go Missing After Syncing Iphone But Haven't Moved?
I am using the latest iTunes on Mac and an iPhone 3GS. iTunes also syncs with an Apple TV. Has always worked flawlessly. Last night I plugged in the phone (down to a 20% battery) to recharge and sync. After the sync I got an error saying 100 items could not be sync'd because they could not be found. In iTunes these tracks (all podcasts) had the "!" symbol beside them. They were, however, still in the correct location in the iTunes library so I reconnected the links and resync'd. Same thing again only different tracks (mow music and a few podcasts). Did this three times and same thing happened everytime, affecting audiobooks too and ringtones I had created and put in a music playlist. All very strange. I deleted all music from iTunes then copied the library back. I cleared all except apps off the sync paramaters for the phone, resynced to remove everything, corrected as many lost linkages as I could and resync'd. Same thing again. Not sure that it had anything to do with the phone but it is a real pain.If I need to start completley from scratch and delete iTunes and associated files, what do I need to retain (other than the music files) to ensure I preserve album art and tags etc - not that I want to do this unless absolutely neceesary - thought there might be a simple fix like deleteding an xml file or something.

MacBook Air :: Air Optimised For Clamshell Mode When Connecting To External Monitor?
I have used my ultimate 11" on usual mirrored display on battery power and in clamshell mode.

A few hours ago, I was running many apps in mirrored mood and my air just began to lag so badly after an hour. Expose is slow as well as surfing and clicking. I wondered what happened. Then I plug back power supply and close the lid of Air, hence running in clamshell mode. It then returned to full speed.

Please help explain to me if title is true. It is disturbing to learn that plugging into to ext monitor could lag.

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: DNS - A Record (Machine Record) & Pointer Record (PTR)
When I contacted my ISP to have the Pointer Record (PTR) & A Record (Machine Record) assigned to my static IP address, I think the technician assigned the A Record as [URL]. When I installed SLS on my server, I gave it the name of [URL]. I'm now having some problems setting up my users services and think maybe the A Record assigned by the ISP should have been named "". Am I correct? And, if so, when I contact the ISP am I using the proper terms? And is there anything else that I should let the ISP know?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting IPhone 3G Via Bluetooth
I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Internet Through IPhone Possible?
I am a first time MacBook Pro user. I bought this laptop for my business and, when on travel, will need to connect my laptop to the Internet wirelessly. Can I connect my MacBook to the Internet through my I-Phone? Will I need to add software to one or both systems (I-Phone and MacBook) to do this?

As a backup, are there any pay-as-you-go aircards that actually work on a Mac system? I have heard/read negative things about the Virgin Mobile Aircard. Bottom line is that I need reliable connectivity on occasion, thus I do not need a 1 or 2 year contract.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting IPhone To New Computer (Contacts Sync)
I have recently purchased a macbook pro, previously had an ibook G4. I am connecting my iphone to the new computer and want to sync it to this machine. It is advising that once synced, all info from the old laptop will be cleared and new info added. All music, photos etc are already on the new comp so thats ok but my concern is losing my contacts. I have my iphone synced with outlook contacts and I would assume they will stay on the device but what about original phone contacts including those saved to the sim?

MacBook Air :: Connecting To Any TV?
i have my us-bought macbook air in europe and trying to connect it using apple's micro-dvi to s-video adapter to connect it to a tv. when i connect it i can't change the resolution in the displays settings to PAL instead of NTSC.

if i connect an older macbook it works fine. is this a graphics card limitation with my macbook air? is there any way of forcing it to use PAL? otherwise i can't use it in europe and that annoys me like no other considering i travel here often

MacBook Air :: One Screws At Bottom Missing
One of my screw are missing, what should I do? Where can I get one back? Moreover, I think when I go fix my mac with the AASP in Canada, they somehow make my air screws easy to lose, may be they use a wrong screw driver, or they tried to put some other screws in. I don't know and I didin't realize it at the beginning but after a couple weeks, I realize that the screws are losing, so I tried to use a screwdriver to make it more tight, at that time, I realize the screws are easy to lose. I now use some tape to tape on the screws incase, another one lost.

MacBook Air :: Missing 3 Bottom Screws
I am new to macs. I just bought a used macbook air, and realized 3 screws were missing from the bottom, I called all the local repair shops, no one has screws for it. I would really like to get the screws. Longer ones by the fan I am more concerned about, where could I order them from without getting a while set for like $40? It is out of warranty so apple will not give me the screws.
