MacBook Pro :: OWC Data Doubler Work With Stock Internal HD In Mid - 2010 15" I5?

Jul 31, 2010

Does the OWC Data Doubler work with the stock internal HD in the Mid-2010 MBP 15' i5? (Specs: 320GB Serial ATA; 5400 rpm) -from [URL] The reason I'm asking this is because I'm planning to switch out the stock internal HD with an SSD (Intel X25-M G2). Then use the stock HD and put it in the optical drive space for data storage.

MacBook Pro :: Best HDD For External / Internal Use With 2010 13"

Aug 16, 2010

I am currently in the market for a new hard drive for my MBP to upgrade and one to use for Time Machine. I was thinking somewhere between 500GB to 1TB of data for both the MBP and external. I tried the Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1TB in my 2009 13" MBP but it was too loud and clicked so I returned it. I now have the 2010 13" MBP and was wondering what other hard drives are out there?

Mac Pro :: Swapped Stock Cooler - GC Does Not Work Anymore

Sep 14, 2008

Yesterday I swapped the stock cooler of my radeon HD3870 for a zalman vf1000. Since then, the GC doesn't work anymore (even with the stock fan back). So after a night of check, test and prettty much everything, I'm pretty sure my GC is dead. What I want to know it could be a short circuit? I'm a good mac user and I already did that on others cards (X1900 with an accelero for example.) I talked with xlryourmac and he can't see. I really want to find out a plausible explanation, because I'll probably buy another GC et wouldn't want to do the same mistake twice. I have a Macpro clovertown 2x3 Ghz - 12Gb Ram- Raptor Boot- Raid 3To- Multibridge Pro 2.

MacBook Pro :: OWC Data Doubler With SSD Drive?

Oct 23, 2010

Has anybody tried one of these with an SSD drive to replace the optical drive? Other World Computing even sells these with their SSD drives. I'm thinking that a combination of one of these in a MBP 13 would allow me to have both a high capacity HDD and high performance SSD. I wonder if you would be able to shutdown the HDD to save battery life when not using?

MacBook Pro :: Using Data Doubler SSD On 13"

I wanted to format the drives to use SPAN or basically combining space for one big drive. I didn't know if the HDD would slow down the SSD if I did that.

MacBook Pro :: Does Bootcamp Work On Crucial M225 SSD's On 2010

Jun 23, 2010

So I've read about how bootcamp isn't working on some SSD manufacturers. People will partition the SSD ok and install Windows but upon boot they get stuck on the gray screen forever. Windows won't boot.

I'm curious if anyone who has a Crucial M225 SSD installed in their 2010 MBP (maybe late 2009) have tried installing Windows via Bootcamp with success.

If you have then instead of going the route of using Apple's SSD I'm going to get a 256GB Crucial M225 as they are cheaper and I know it has garbage collection which is a must for me.

MacBook Air :: 2010 From 13" 2010 And IPad Owner's Point Of View

Oct 26, 2010

I have an iPad 32GB WiFi and a MacBook Pro as well so I was trying very hard to justify myself in getting an 11" MBA but ending up talking myself out of it. The 13" MBP is perfect for my uses. It's already lightweight and portable as it is. After playing with the 11" in the Apple store, I was impressed on how light it was. This no doubt blows away any netbook or any notebook in it's weight class in terms of size and performance. However, the MBP's battery life, hard drive space, and processing power OUTWEIGHS the reasons of dumping my 13" MBP for the Air. Also, I have it hooked up to a 21.5 Inch HP monitor at home and it's good enough to use as a main computer at home, and light enough to take on the road.

If I needed to lookup something quickly in bed or around the house, that's where the iPad comes in. If I needed to send a quick e-mail, my HTC Evo is already great at doing that. If I didn't have a 13" MBP or even the iPad, I would have most likely went ahead and purchased the MBA. Just now at this point, spending another $1000+ or getting rid of my MBP doesn't make much sense... yet.

Software :: Open Old Disk Doubler Files On Mac OS X

Mar 29, 2004

I am trying to open some old files back from when I used Mac OS 7.5, 8.0, 9.0. The files in question were saved using Disk Doubler (from FIfth generation Systems) to compress them. I must ask first, am I correct in assuming that file type of DDAP and DDFL are Disk Doubler files? I'm trying to reopen some of those files. According to Alladyn Systems web site, StuffIt Expander is supposed to open Disk Doubler files. However, if I drag one of the DD files onto StuffIt Expander I get the following message: The file �Insert name here� does not appear to be compressed or encoded. It is advised that you obtain further information about the contents of the file from the sender or provider of the file.

Software :: Disk Doubler - Retrieve Old Data

Mar 8, 2008

I'm leaving it even later than most to retrieve some old data. I have some Quark 3.32 (I think) files that were DDd in 98-99 and I'd like to retrieve them. As these are essentially text files I'm not in the slightest bothered about how they appear but if I can get the words back it would be marvellous. I've seen people suggesting DDexpand.sea but that doesn't seem to help. I have OSX and not Classic or OS9 or anything like that - have I left it too late? The material is not sensitive so even if I could send a couple of files to someone to extract that would be wonderful

MacBook Pro :: Worth Buying 13" 2010 Or MB 2010 Better?

Apr 15, 2010

I've been lurking MacRumors ever since 'the wait for Arrandale' began and finally decided to sign up now so I could post this thread. I've been a Windows user for a long time now and I have a Win7 rig at home. However, I'll be going to uni later this year so I need a good portable notebook that's suitable for the common mailing 'n surfing, but also for doing some programming in Eclipse (Java) and PHP work etc. I still have my Win7 box at home for gaming and things that require larger screensize, but for the notebook... I feel really attracted to OSX with a MBP.

It will be my first Mac, but my desktop dualboots with OSX and I love it. So that's why I have decided that my school notebook will be a Mac. This is why I have been closely watching the rumors for the new MBPs and ofcourse I was pretty disappointed when I saw that the 13" model still had a C2D cpu... It's not that I need a beefed up CPU in my notebook (... I have a 3.6 GHz quad at home ), but it feels 'wrong' to buy a MBP 13": even the 2009 MacBook has a C2D, so what will the MB 2010 update bring? Is it really worth the extra money? Anyone with a similar situation?

Windows On Mac :: Autocad 2010 On 7 Delete Doesn't Work?

I have a Macbook pro and I'm running windows 7 as the operating system. I just started using Autocad 2010 on this computer, and for some reason, the "delete" key doesn't delete anything when I press it. I tried to set "pickfirst" to 1 (checking the box of "noun/ verb"), but it doesn't help. Setting them both to <0> and <1> don't make a difference, both options don't "delete" the selected object.

Mac Mini :: (Fall 2010) Optical DVD Drive Doesn't Work?

May 26, 2012

I purchased this spring of 2011 and only used the drive to install the software. I had lots of other problems with kernel issues and was in and out of the Genius Store like a hen on an egg, but now I am trying to use the DVD drive and it doesn't work. It doesn't recognize any applications to open it, not Toast, not Disk Utility, and it has a hard time recognizing music CDs also.Not only does it not recognize it on the desktop, it simply spits the disk out. I purchased new DVD-RW and tried to write an .iso image to the DVD, and it won't work. Sad fact is that this is now past the warranty and I am stuck with this. The Mac Mini 2010 version was expensive, and the only reason I bought it was because of the drive because I didn't have one.

MacBook :: MBP Now In Stock At Best Buy, Just Swapped UMB For MBP?

If your 14 days or under on the return policy and bought from Best Buy, check your local stores. Mine got theirs in yesterday. Went over there this morning and exchanged my UMB 2.0 for the 13" MBP 2.26. Didn't get charged a restocking fee and ended up owing only 106 bucks (I went in on Wednesday and price matched down to 1099 which is why I owed money on the exchange).
