MacBook Pro :: Downloading Skype - DMG File Won't Open

Jun 27, 2014

I have literally just brought a new 15 inch mac book pro late 2013 and just in the process of downloading the things i need however every time i go to download skype when i open the dmg it keeps saying in a small grey box "The Following disk images couldn't be opened.. "Skype_6.18.0.493.dmg/Image data corrupted" I have tried everything tried using a different browser, change the gate keeper setting to allow downloads from anywhere, right clicking dmg file and click open but it just seems that for some reason my laptop will not let me open up this DMG. I want to be able to skype my friends and family.

Jun 14, 2010

On the right hand side of my desktop when I download a program it seems to put an icon or doc on the right hand side. Like right now I have a skype dmg file I can't delete as it says Skype is in use, then right above that is a seperate skype icon that even if I drag to dock it still stays on the right hand side (like a copy), then I downloaded open office again and it put the install icon there (like when you open and you drag your program to teh applications folder)

OS X :: After Downloading And Opening An .rar File A File Named .DS_Store Appeared On Desktop?

Sep 8, 2009

I have a G4, dual 450, 1G Ram running 10.4.11. Recently after downloading and opening an .rar file, a file named .DS_Store appeared on the desktop. I have since deleted the .rar file, but cannot delete the .DS file. It is appearing now in all of my programs, including my camera when I plug it in. I've tried ClamXav, MacScan, and DnsChangerRemovaltool, also What'sKeepingMe, but nothing can remove it. Info says it's a document, 16 KB, and it reads as date created the last time I turned the machine on. Can anyone tell me what this is and how I can get rid of it?

MacBook Air :: Move Currently Downloading File / App To Hard Drive?

Jun 19, 2014

I was recently anxious to buy a game from the Mac App Store, being 40 gigabytes in size. The only problem is my free space. Having a 128 GB SSD, I have 36 gigabytes not in use. If I was to download the app, and get the grayed-out icon appeared in Finder, could I simply drag that icon to my hard drive and let the download continue there, or would that potentially corrupt files/break the download? 

I am using a Mid-2012 MacBook Air, running OSX Mavericks 10.9.3.

I figured out how to run multiple copies of skype by launching the .app file from different osx user accounts in terminal.  What I'm trying to do now is script this or automate opening terminal and typing the line with automator.  The following is the line that I use. 

su user2 -c "/Applications/ && exit" 

And I just change user2 to user3 for a third instance of skype and so on. how ot automate this process?

Mar 7, 2012

I am running Mac OS X 10.4.11 Encountered problems opening a .MOV file attached to a Mail email.  The file crashed. Now, none of these files will open:  Mail, Safari, itunes, iChat, Google Earth, Skype.  The icon bounces ONCE, then...nothing. At first I thought it was only internet-linked applications, but I am able to run Firefox browser, as well as open other applications that don't link to the internet, .I have opened similar MOV files from the same source before, and no problems.

Software :: Tried To Use The Internet And Skype, But The Skype Didn't Work At All?

Jun 5, 2008

I have reached this website after scrawling to find a solution on the internet. I hope someone can help me with this problem.I have a 4 years old G4 ibook (OS 10.3.7), and have been using it for internet, skype and foto-storage mainly.Situtation:Yesterday I tried to use the internet (Firefox browser) and skype, but the skype didn't work at all. Since firefox was not working properly either, I did force quit and restarted the computer. I attempted this several times until I could use both applications (never had any problems before). However, Skype didn't work, and in the end, I could not quit firefox at all. At last I did force quit again, and saw white screen with apple icon at the centre when restarting. No time-spinning mark, the apple just sits there.

Troubleshooting that I have done:
I called up support center, and they told me that it's very likey that the computer is stopping at "'carnel" stage (I'm sorry but I don't know what this is). The possibility that it's got something to do with HD is 50/50, so I may have to send it to repairing service in the worst case. They told me to try using Disc Install CD1 to check/repair something wrong in my computer. So I followed the instructions and inserted the install CD and restart the computer with "c" key. The computer read the CD and Installer window showed up. As instructed in a manual, I used First Aid in Disc Utility, and tried "repairing disc". After a while it said "1 HFS has been repaired". It also said that Macintosh HD doesn't seem to have a problem", so I quit the disc utility and restarted the computer.

Against my expectation, the same white screen with apple came up on the screen and sits there with no other movements.I'm afraid of trying somethinig without further so I hope I can get the same story or ideas that someone here might have.

OS X :: Downloading A File / Wireless Connection Slowdown?

Jan 15, 2010

While I was downloading a file earlier, I clicked on the Airport icon in the menu bar to see which wireless network I was connected to. As Airport scanned for wireless networks (it does it automatically after clicking the Airport icon), I noticed that the speed of the download dropped so far that it practically stopped for a moment. I tried it a few other times and got a similar result. Anyone else notice connection drops/slowdowns when clicking on the Airport icon while it scans for other networks? Is there a way to prevent this? I'm running OS X 10.6.2 on a MacBook Pro. I posted it here because it seemed more of an OS thing than hardware.

IMac PPC :: Downloading Vector-works File From Mail?

Jun 9, 2012

I just recently switched to the cloud from mobile me and realized my imac didn't have Lion so I'm having to access email through internet rather than through MAIL.  Before the switch, I could receive Vectorworks files via email and drag to my desktop and then open in that application.  Now, the file comes in as a .vwx but I get the message "There is no application set to open the document"  It then asks if I want to choose an application on my computer but it won't let me choose Vectorworks.

Applications :: Unable To Open Keynote Presentation File - File Corrupted?

Oct 18, 2010

Today I tried opening my keynotes presentation file to make amendments to it and when I double clicked on it, the program loading bar only loaded up a third of the way and then hanged. I then tried to save it to a flash drive and use it on a different computer, but when I tried to copy it over to the flash drive it gave me this error: "the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "garment styles" could not be read or written error code - 36".

I have tried changing the file extension to a zip, then unzipping it and then renaming it but that did not work.(It wouldn't let me unzip it). I have also looked at the index file name to see if that was the problem, but that is as it should be.

I have also tried uploading it to a website and emailing it and it will not let me.

Is there anyway I can recover this file as I have been working on it for over a month and it is due next week, or will I need to start again?

Software :: Unable To Open Encrypted File / Recovering The Original File?

Aug 23, 2009

ok trying not to get a panic attack here. I downloaded espionge to encrypt my valuable files and while it was encrypting (AES 128 bit i think) the program froze and I had to Force quit it. Now I try to open my file (that i was trying to encrypt) and it looks f*^&# up. I can't open it, and when I tried to unmount the partially encrypted file, espionage gave me errors that it couldnt recover the original file.

I had basically all my life's valuable accumulated data in that folder (it was 10 Gb+). I will praise anyone to the end of my days that can somehow tell me how to restore my file to its original state. Usefull info:

1) AM planning to pay gazillions for recovery software if need be, but free alternatives are always better.

2) I never secure delete if that helps

3) I still have the .sparseimage for the file created by espionage. (P.S. sparseimage's size looks really close to the orignal, also 10 Gb +).

4) Newest version of OSX, and have an IMac.

5) after incident I haven't done anything (no installations or downloads) apart from writing this.

6) the encrypted file was gonna be in HFS+ i think
