Safari used to let me drag an image from a webpage to the finder and have the dragged file be saved as an actual image but now all that's saved is a webloc file. I want the image saved, not a reference to the image's URL - do I now have to always use "save as" to save it?
I can understand Safari creating a webloc file if I dragged the site icon from the location bar to the finder, but to make the default behavior for dragging things that are parts of a page (not the page itself) as webloc files seems like a HUGE step backwards for usability.
Does anyone know if there's, say, a key to hold when dragging to avoid saving a webloc file or a defaults command or something to make Safari revert back to sane draging behavior?
One software says I cannot upload an image because the image or the container folder does not have permission. Indeed there is one "unknown" in permissions, that I cannot get to a read write no matter how hard I try -- both on the folder, the desktop, and the file (this is all on my laptop) I've done a repair permission.
When a user copies an image from a browser into PowerPoint 2011 he gets text of a link back to the image, not the image itself. But if he copies from a browser into Word he gets the image, and can then copy the image from Word to PowerPoint. Same results with both Firefox and Safari. Behavior is new so I assume it relates to recent software updates but user does not recall accepting any.
I recently right clicked a picture to set it as my desktop picture but didn't have the foresight to save the picture in case I wanted to change it later. I still have the picture up but I cannot find where the picture is stored so I can save it for later. I checked HD/Library/desktop pictures but no luck. Does anyone know where these pictures are saved?
I have the new 2.4 aluminum macbook and today for the first time I started burning cds and I noticed the whole computer vibrates pretty strongly. Is that normal? Also if i pick up the macbook and move it slightly while its burning it makes a weird noise. Is that normal also?
I just purchased Toast 10 Titanium Pro with the hopes of being able to burn blu-ray DVDs using my MBP which I purchased last December (2008) with a CD/DVD burner: MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-868.
Do I need to purchase a special blu-ray drive (internal or external) to do this? I was told by my Apple rep that my dvd burner was fine and that I needed to use Final Cut Pro. I read that Toast 10 Titanium Pro was also compatible to make blu-ray DVDs.
How long does it usually take to burn a movie (approx 700mb - 1GB lasting roughly 2hours) on a new macbook pro 13" ? My friend has an macbook alu and she said it took her 6 hours to burn a movie. We have a hunk a junk PC with a DVD burner and took 2 hours to burn a DVD. Anyway I can speed things up?
I have a bunch of media files (videos) that I want to store onto a CD-RW so I'm not wasting any unnecessary HD space on my Mac. However, when I attempted to do so it created a seemingly permanent file directly on my desktop with those videos that I cannot delete without compromising my ability to ever view those files again. In so doing, I seem to be unintentionally duplicating media files and decreasing the space on my HD as a result. How might I save video files to a simple CD without having to have a copy on my system to be able to view them? The file in question has the "burn" icon on its cover. You see, just to test myself, I tried to delete it in my trash can, and it wouldn't allow me ti view those videos and movies without first re-instating that duplicate file. The filre originated as a CD until the burning phase was completed.
I created a movie in iMovie and now I am working in iDVD, I finished the project and have tried several times to burn it to a blank DVD. It goes through most of the process but right before it should be done burning it ejects the DVD. So I've tried putting it back in and it does the something all over again.
Is there a single efficient, fast, quality dvd burning program for mac? I am using osx 10.6.4. I can't find one, free or otherwise, that works well and takes less than an hour and a half. This includes idvd. I will never own another type of computer, and I don't miss PC, but my acer could burn a quality dvd in 45 minutes.
Have got a macbook unibody, got this about 6 months ago. I put a blank dvd+r in today and used toast to burn some files to it. finished burning but the disk will not come out, have tried ejecting and it says its not there no more but has not came out, have also restarted and it see's the disk again and can be read but then if you eject it still does not come out, have tried cmd e, eject button, disk utility, any idea's or should i take it to apple to be fixed/swapped out, not sure which they do
One day I inserted a CD in my Mac, nothing popped up. So I went into my mac hardware list and clicked on "Disk Burning". I get the following message. "No disk burning device was found. If the device is external, make sure it's connected and turned on." I currently am using a mid-2007 Macbook Pro installed with OS X 10.6.8, It is an Intel Core Duo. I have run Disk Utility and it told me to insert the installation disk and run Disk Utility from there.
I have tried rebooting the computer while holding C and nothing happened. I think the computer can not see the CD Drive so therefore, it will not load the disk. Also, I have considered doing a complete wipe of the hard drive and reinstalling but I have programs (Adobe, Parallels, etc,) that I do not have the disks for. If I was forced to do a full re-install, how could I save these programs from being wiped out and then re-install them cleanly back?
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Glossy), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
I connot burn a DVD. I get the message "The burn to the HL-DT-ST DVDRW GS23N drive failed. The burn failed because of a medium write error." I re-booted, tried different brands of DVDs and slowed the burn speed with no results.
I'm trying to burn some data using DVD+R DL using my 17in MBP w/New Toast Titanium.. Unfortunately, its giving me an error and can not burn it. Anyone experienced this issue? Any solution to this problem??
I have the following hardware: MATSHITA DVD-R UJ-846
last week i tried burning a dvd using roxio toast, but before it began to burn it says the following error: the drive reported an error: sense key = medium error sence code = 0x73, 0x03 i tried to use another dvd, but it is saying the same error (i have been using the same brand of dvd before but never encountered such problems), so tried to restart, and it proceeded to burn, no more errors, so i thought it was only a one time thing, so today, i tried burning again, the same thing happen, the same error, i tried 4 dvd's but the same error keeps on happening, but when i restart the macbook pro, it would proceed to burn with no errors. i wonder what seems to be the problem? my dvd drive or the software? anyone encountered the same problem before?
This is my first post, so please be gentle! I have a 2006/7 White Macbook Core2Duo 2.10Ghz, and I love compiling my own movie compilations via iDVD. The problem that I have is two fold; 1. I burnt 4 episodes of a Public Domain TV Show (3 Stooges) using one of the current menus, and it compiled lovely, burn to disc and verified, but then no sound from the episodes, even though on my master PC, the sound is there, and sound is also present when I copied to my Macbook. 2. I have tried another few discs, each time iDVD states that the disc could not be verified and that the disc is unreadable. Both have been burnt at 6x (my combo/super drives max). Do I possibly need a new drive? Is it worth me burning the project to TS_VIDEO folders on my desktop then burning them via Toast? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as I'm wanting to delve deeper into iDVD and iMovie as I think they are spot on programs.
