MacBook Pro :: Open / Mount Compressed Dmg File

Jun 18, 2012

I recently sold my MacBook Pro, but before doing so I made a compressed image of the hard drive via Disk Utility so I would have access to the files once the laptop was gone. The file was roughly 460GB compressed. The file has been stored on my Drobo.Now I'm trying to mount the image so I can move things over to my new computer but I'm having trouble getting the image to mount, convert or anything. Typically I get a message to the effect of "no mountable filesystem found".

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Copy InstallESD.dmg To DVD Or Flash And Install On A Different Mac?

Jun 6, 2012

I have downloaded Lion to my Macbook Pro.  We live in a rural area and are on a "low speed" high speed internet connection, so it took me ~24 hours to download.  I have not yet begun the installation process, and have copied the installesd.dmg from the install folder to  my desktop. We have 3 macs in our house, and I don't want to have to try to download again, as the process is so slow.  Can I just copy the installesd.dmg to a DVD or flash drive to install it on the other 2 macs? 

If this is possible, do I have to do anything special? Can I install from the flash or DVD or do I need to copy onto the target mac first?  Although both other macs are backed up using time machine, I'm a little nervous about just launching an installation without really knowing what I'm doing.

OS X :: Disk Images Mount But Will Not Open

Apr 1, 2010

Well, after using Monolingual on my iBook G4 late '04 1.2GHZ running Tiger 10.4.11 I tried to install an app from a dmg file and the image mounts but when clicked Finder relaunches (or at least seems to because it blinks off then back on as when relaunching) and the image does not open. Did I mess up the architectures? I left the architectures as marked by Monolingual and proceeded with the deletion.

MacBook Pro :: Whats The Best External Usb Sound Card For Mac?

Dec 5, 2009

I have a macbook pro, 2.4ghz intel and recently picked up logitech's x540 5.1 surround sound speakers.

I know need a good external usb sound card to push the 5.1 surround sound to its fullest

I've been looking around and two caught my attention so far. The Griffin Firewave (which has been discontinued) and the Creative Labs SB1090 USB Sound Blaster X-Fi.

The griffin seems to be fully compatible, but I occasionally game on my windows xp bootcamp parition.. and have read that it is not compatible with windows.

The creative one however is, but of course we all know creative labs doesnt realize that there are actually other OS systems out there other than Windows. Ive searched and found that people were able to get it to work on their macs, others havnt..

I need a definite answer

Or if anyone can recommend another one that I didnt mention.

Software :: Cannot Open DMG Files - Disk Image Failed To Mount

Feb 27, 2010

I'm using a 2GHz PowerPC G5, OS X 10.4.11, with 1 GB on one dimm. I cannot open ANY .dmg files. I have tried clicking the image, and also on a clean download used "open with" each time I received the following message The following disk image failed to mount
Reason: Device not configured

I have followed the instructions in this thread:- Disk image failed to mount: Device not configured.
Firstly Run /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.
Click on "Macintosh HD" in the left column and then press the "Repair Disk Permissions" button.
Delete the file called /System/Library/Extension.kextcache
Delete the folder called /System/Library/Caches/

That made no difference. I then tried bobw's advice here Panther - Disk Image "mounting Failed" Panther - Disk Image "mounting Failed". That made no difference. I have since gone on to and the advice I received was to do an archive and install and then a full combo update.

Applications :: What's The Meaning Of M+/M-

Apr 15, 2010

When use "top" command to check the memory usage for some process, some times the output will display like "34M+", "15M-".

Does that mean "more than 34M"/"less than 15M"? if so, why doesn't use the same sign, like "34M+"/"14M+" , or "35M-"/"15M-"?

Mac Pro :: Benchmark Tests Meaning?

Mar 16, 2008

I have a few questions:

When sites do various benchmark tests, they typically use something like 3DMark, and I think Cinebench CPU, etc.

First, I probably got those benchmark apps wrong...which ones do tech sites typically use?

Also, what exactly do these benchmarks exam.

Say I have a rendering application that is processor heavy...what benchmark should I be looking at?

Say I have another application for modeling, and I know it is graphics intensive. What benchmark should I be looking at?

And, to round things out, if I have an application that I know is memory heavy, what stats should I look at.

The reason I'm asking, is when upgrading my computer (at this point RAM), or considering a new MacPro, I want to know I'm buying for the right reasons.

I don't want to buy a powerful computer to find out that its max potential is not fully realized as it relies on something else. Granted I understand a new comp all around will perform better. However, applications such as Maxwell render does not hold back, it will use every processor available (8-cores would be amazing!), but others don't rely on processor, but memory more so.

Even then, I'm not sure all the time how the application performs. With as many apps as I use for different things (Rhino NURBS modeling [XP], Maxwell Render, VIZ/3DS Max, SketchUp, Adobe CS3, CAD) I can't always tell what part of the comp they use.

Thanks [for those who read everything and understand what I'm asking]

Software :: Meaning Of Font Icons In Mail Program?

May 15, 2008

Does anyone have any idea as to what those icons are in under "Fonts" in the Apple mail program? Launch Mail. New. Choose Fonts. And you'll see " T underlined" explained....T cross thru, etc. Then you'll see a colored box...launches colors....Then a picture of a page. What does that do? Another "T" this time you can change the background color of the box back and forth. Then some sort of bars with a triangle, a box and a smaller box. Wait? Am I playing Myst? Then, finally a wheel that you can change from degrees.

Whats Up With Lion Lately?

Jun 7, 2012

I recently reinstalled Lion on my system and updated it and all that. Now I can't seem to install anything or run a program unless I'm at the computer. No matter what I set my power settings to my system will log out and cancel anything that's running, including downlaods and instalations. This is very frustrating when trying to download something overnight if it's a large file. It never used to do this, and I can only guess it's something with the latest update.

Total Number Of Cores:2
L2 Cache:4 MB

Applications :: Whats Fastest And Best Video Converter For Mac

Apr 13, 2010

Looking to encode all my video DVDs etc, for my library. I have an Apple TV, PS3, iMac (2Ghz Core 2 Duo) and iPhone. I have been using Handbrake which is great, use the Apple TV preset which plays on all the devices listed I have. However I'm just wondering if there is a paid for, or free program that is faster or better in any respect for converting? I know H264 is CPU intensive, so is Handbrake going to be the best and fastest anyway?
