MacBook Pro :: Any Way To Speed Up Burning DVD Process

May 14, 2010

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?

OS X :: Re Fsck-hfs Process At Start Up - How To Disable Speed Up Process

Sep 21, 2009

I have a Mac Pro with several raid array and single drives attached (1x Wiebetech RTX600 Raid 5 through SCSI; 1x CalDigit HDElement Raid 5 through miniSAS; 4x internal drives).Unfortunately, due to various reasons (electricity outtage and software crashes), I'm experiencing system crashes and need to hard re-start the system. Upon restart, I am able to boot back into Mac OS X, but sometimes one, or both of the raid arrays will not mount.However, after a period of 0.5 - 2 hours, the array would magically re-appear again. Sometimes this might even happen to internal drives that I had mounted inside the chassis of the Mac Pro.

Applications :: One Step Video Burning Process?

May 17, 2010

I've been trying to burn a video from my Canon camcorder using iDVD and it keeps telling me that nothing is being captured. It seems like it should be such an easy process, but it is not working for me. I have imported the video to iMovie but cannot figure out how to burn a dvd from that application either.

Software :: Slow Printing - Any Way To Speed Up Process

May 20, 2010

We have a Mac here running 10.5 and users are complaining about how long it takes to print (by comparison to Windows) and if there's any way to speed it up. Unlike the Windows machines which go to a print server, OS X prints directly to the printer. The types of documents they're printing are large, so either big graphics or multiple copies consisting of lots of text/pictures.

By my understanding what's happening is the printer waits until the entire job has spooled before it starts to print. Which makes me wonder if there's a OS X equivalent to the Windows option "start printing immediately". I've been looking around Google etc but haven't found much. Having said that I'm a Windows admin so I could be heading down the wrong track.

OS X :: Burning A CD In ITunes - Is Slower Speed Better

Aug 3, 2010

I'm burning a few CD's to listen to in my car...

the audiobooks i'm burning are going at the maximum speed, as its simply an audiobook...but as for my music, i'd prefer the best sound I can get..

..So this leads me to wonder if a slower burning speed, such as 2x or 4x, are better than say 12x, for sound?

Can anyone verify this provide some insight on the matter?

OS X :: Good Process Explorer Equivalent - Monitor Process CPU And RAM

Feb 26, 2010

I am wondering if anyone knows of a good osx based alternative to Process Explorer on windows - what I'd like to be able to do is graph CPU and memory for a specific process and ideally see what network connections a specific process has open. atMonitor seems to do this pretty well generally, but not for specific processes (this is for monitoring a multiplayer flash game).

MacBook Pro :: WIFI Downloading Speed Very Slow / Speed Test Shows It Is Fast

Apr 30, 2009

Sorry for the title but I couldn't think of anything better. Hopefully I'll be able to explain my problem. I have a MPR 2.53 ghz, 4 gig ram, I'm using Safari 4.04. I am using the WIFI at a guesthouse in Thailand (but I had the same issue in China, Vietnam ...). I ran a speed test and it said download 7mb/sec and upload about 1mb/sec. I have an "app" that says bandwidth in 1.3kb/sec out 1.0kbs. I thought maybe it was Safari so I downloaded and installed Firefox. firefox gives me similar speeds. When I downloaded Firefox though I had a download speed of over 1mb/sec. But as soon as it finished downloading the speed went back to around 1kb/sec. I have rebooted my MBP many times. I did some Google searches but didn't find anything helpful.

Hardware :: Internet Speed Through My Airport Express Slows Down About Half The Speed

Apr 10, 2009

I have a WDS local network at my house. I use a Airport Extreme in my main part of the house and a Airport Express for my back part of the house i.e. the backyard. Now every two weeks or so my internet speed through my Airport Express slows down about half the speed but when I am connected trough the Airport Extreme my speed is normal. I know this because I test my connection very often. Now when I want the Airport Express to get back up to speed I have to unplug, and plug it back in. Then after awhile it starts to slow down again in a time period of two weeks or so.

OS X :: Difference Between Speed Test & File Downloads Speed?

Apr 12, 2009

i have a 1.5 Mbps AT&T DSL connection, and multiple speed tests show a download speed of 1.2 Mbps (and 200 Kbps upload). when i download files, such as software updates from Apple, various podcasts, and even Silverlight from Microshaft, the speed is always between 140 - 160 Kbps. i contacted AT&T, and the rep said it was because of buffering by the servers i was receiving the files from. is this a reasonable explanation? is this an accurate use of the term "buffering"?

MacBook Pro :: Process That Cannot Be 'killed'

Mar 31, 2012

There is a process, "PocketCloudService" that I cannot finish even from terminal (kill PID), the response is "Operation not permitted". I did the same of killing proceses from terminal and it worked, but it doesn't with this process. It belonged to a program that I unistalled, "Pocket Cloud". I reinstalled that program and unistalled again, but the process continues running, even if I restart the mac. It's annoying because sometimes it spends about 80% CPU, warming my mac (and my patience!), therefore I finish the process "PocketCloudService" from Activity Monitor, but it restarts few seconds after. I just want to delete or block the source that launches that process and not have to stop it manually anymore.From activity monitor when I check the process, the main process is "launchd (1)", user: root (0)

MacBook Air :: What Sort Of Delays Would I Be Seeing In The Streaming Process

Jan 27, 2009

I reviewed the guide about saving your media on a external drive and accessing it via the Internet and successfully set that up. I have about 700 GBs of space available on that all setup through my AEBS. Would it be possible to store my media (music/movies) on that and stream them from there when I am remotely (i.e. at work, starbucks, etc...). What sort of delays would I be seeing in the streaming process? My connection at home is roughly 7 down and 1.5 upload.

MacBook Pro :: Report Crash Process Using Over 100 Percent Of CPU

Mar 28, 2012

For the past few days my macbook pro (lion 10.7.3) has been overheating and the fan has been going crazy.In my processes, there is one called "report crash" that is consistently using between 50% and 180% of the CPU. I force quit it, but it just comes back straight away.I looked into my logs to see what is causing it and there seems to be a continual launch/crash cycle related to com.apple.midiserver, whatever that is.Does anyone have a clue why the midiserver is fighting to be launched ad infinitum and causing my mac to go berserk?

MacBook :: Have A Process Sending Data To Telkomadsl?

Jul 4, 2012

I have recently discovered that a 'web' process has been sending data to an address which I have identified through VirusBarrier X6 to be "dsl-146-236-157 [URL]"   Over a 2 day period, 1,2gb was sent to this address.  I have since blocked these addresses through the virus scanner, but now I need to delete this process/es from my system.   I do not know how I got this 'process' downloaded, as it is not identified as a virus, malware, trojan etc. My research tells me that this has been seen on windows and other macs, and I want to see how to remove it.
