Final Cut Pro :: Hiding FCP 7 And Opening Livetype Then Can't Bring Back Up
Have a problem that started occurring yesterday. If I am in FCP and then save and hide it to work in Livetype. when I finish in Livetype and try to go back to FCP in the tool bar, zippo. I can bring any other app up (idvd, itunes etc) but can't bring FCP back up. I check to see if it is "not responding" but doesn't show that. it's still active as I can't reboot the computer as it show FCP still active. So I force quit it. Think I'll trash the FCP prefs but wondered if anyone else has had this issue.

MacBook Pro :: Bring Back The ExpressCard / 34 Slot
As a videoprofessional the expresscard slot is from vital use to me. I use it every day for all kinds of external hardware, offloading sxs cards, attaching esata drives, etc.

How is it possible that apple didn't put one of those slots in the 15" macbookpro? This is the single most used laptop in the world for photographers and video/film users. The port is really usefull, and alot of people don't want an 17", because it's to big and heavy.

An sd card reader is also completely useless, because it can only read SD cards and nothing else. In a expresscard slot you can put so much kind of readers that it can virtually read everything. You could even slide in a nice sd card reader, that doesn't stick out and has exact the same functions.

How can we convince apple to give us back the expresscard port on the 15" macbook pro?

OS X V10.4 :: Get-info On A Folder Display Number Of Files 'in' Folder?
(1) How can i have get-info on a folder display the number of files *in* the folder?I do not like having to count them by hand.

(2), how can i get new folders (and other files) to be placed at the bottom of a drive's window rather than off to the right at the top of the window..?

I have hundreds of files on this drive, arranged essentially in a tall column 3 or 4 files wide. I DON'T want new folders (or files that i copy or save to the drive) being placed all the way up at the top, out of view to the right because then i have to drag them all the way down to the bottom. Follow? Yet, this is what OSX is doing (usually).

OS X :: Won't Organize Applications Folder / Can't Change Back
So I just upgraded to Snow Leopard and I haven't noticed much of a difference on my MacBook. Anyways, when I used to open my applications folder all my app icons were smaller and they would all fit in the box. Now when I open it, I have to scroll to get to the different apps. How can I change this back to what it used to be?

OS X :: Won't Work With SL / Can't Get Back Apps Folder And Icons
After happily using Tiger for years, I finally switched to SL with the purchase of a new 27 iMac. And I hate SL already. I accidentally removed the applications folder from the dock, and when I tried to get it back, it only comes on with the address book icon. Try this to see how retarded SL is: open the applications folder in finder, and drag it to the dock - when you release the mouse, it magically transforms the icon on the dock to an address book icon - why? WTF knows. It's retarded. Really, I've only spent a few hours on SL and I find it so chock full of bugs I wish I could go back to Tiger.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Go Past Boot Screen-want To Back Up Files Before Reinstalling
My Macbook (Aluminum Unibody-before they labeled it "the pro") started slowing down when I installed snow leopard recently. It was jamming up a lot and I would have to restart often. On my most recent lock up, I restarted and it never went past the apple boot screen. I booted from the system DVD and ran disk utility, to no avail. There were all sorts of errors. Brought the computer into best buy and they tested the health of my hard drive-it is in perfect condition. THey suggested I just reinstall the OS and everything on my computer would be saved. I went to do this and received this error "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume without changing your installation settings. Click Options to change the settings. The contents of this volume cannot be changed"

When I click options, I receive this:
"The destination disk must be erased for installation.

The detination volume will be completely erased and a new compy of Mac OS X will be installed on the volume. All your data will be lost" Then gives me these options "Format as: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) or Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled).

You gotta talk to me like I'm someone with no experience with this sort of thing. Because.. I'm not experienced with these issues. I did all the startups that are suggested... the fsck (or whatever) thing (doesn't fix anything), the single-user start up, start up in safe mode (doesn't work).

Now, I can boot up with my system disk and reach the disk utlity. There is an option there to "restore" by dragging the Mac HD to the top field and the external hard drive to the bottom field. It does say it will write over any other files, however.

Here's my issue-first, I want to make sure that it will really make a full copy of everything, just as Time Machine does. The only hard drive I have that is WORKING with this, is the one that my time machine backups are on. I'm assuming all of my backups (there are many), will be erased and written over. Is this so? And will backing up by this method, really work to where I will be able to access all my files? Will I be able to restore from this backup after the OS is reinstalled? I hadn't backed up since December 3 and there is some important information and files on there that I just can't lose. I already tried switching out the hard drive from my computer to another mac, but for some reason, the screw keeping the hard drive attached, is stripped and there's no way to get it out. Very strange since I've never tried

OS X :: Favorites Folder - Copy Of Whole Folder Instead Working As Shortcut
Because of problems accessing our network using Snow Leopard, I've started using the 'Favorites' folder as a 'shortcut' to our networked drives. It works fine and is very useful. A colleague has asked me to set the same facility up on his computer. When I dragged 'Favorites' from his 'Libary' folder to the sidebar, it appeared there with a heart icon. 'Sweet!' we thought. However, we then found that when we dragged one of the folders which he wanted to have in his favorites over to the sidebar, the O.S. proceeded to make a copy of the whole folder contents - instead of it working as a shortcut. What are we doing wrong?

MacBook Pro :: Safari Icon Missing After Crash / Get It Back Without 'reseting' That?
The icon of Safari in my dock is missing, I think it happened after it crashed (my dock auto-hides, so I'm not 100%)

I've tried re-starting, all that...

How do I get it back without 'reseting' Safari (if that even works)... or at least reseting as few of the checkboxes as possible?

By the way, Safari has been very incompatible with the internet since the update to Safari 5... Flash plugin crashes all the time - YouTube; doesn't work well with Facebook - videos, posting links, etc.; and various other bugs.

OS X :: Can't Get Back Hidden Folder
Yesterday, I reinstalled leopard, as I was having errors, and random problems. I backed everything up fine, however I forgot an important /.hidden file I had with some bank data. The machine was on a time machine backup.

Any chance to get it back some how? Would time machine back, it up? Any program that may allow me to get it back if it is still on the drive? I just did a standard quick erase before installing osx again.

Logic Studio / Pro :: Copied Midi Files Won't Play - Get Sounds Back?
I am new to this forum and I'm hoping someone can help me.
I opened up an old file that I created in Logic 5, and tried to copy some events from the session into a new Logic 8 window. The events appear grayed out (with their original colors around the edge), and with a small circle in the top left corner. It now won't play. I can still see the score/matrix, etc, but no signal is coming out, despite what instrument I select.
I took a screen grab of what I mean, and put it here.
get the sounds back!

When I try to put them back, finder removes it again.Also if I go to Finder - Preferences and try to check the documents shortcut to appear in sidebar again, the checkbox doesn't work. I'm pretty sure this happened after I synchronized my iPhone for the first time. How can I add favorites to the finder sidebar again?

OS X :: Change The Default Location Of 'Music', 'Pictures', Etc. In My Home Folder?
IMAGINE I have 2 hard disk partitions on the SAME hard disk,
one is called 'Macintosh HD' and the other is called 'My Data'.

The Plan:
In the 'Macintosh HD', there are (1) system files & (2) users' settings.
In the 'My Data', there are all the music, pictures, etc.

For example, the 'Macintosh HD' has 40GB and the 'My Data' has 120GB.
All I want to do is to separate the SYSTEM and my DATA without migrating my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD' which contains folders called 'Music', 'Pictures'... to the partition 'My Data'.

I want to separate the system files and my data incase I need to reinstall the Mac OS X while leaving all my data untouched.

So the way I should do (I guess) is to leave my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD' empty,
and create files called, for example, 'My Music', 'My Pictures', etc. in the 'My Data' partition.
Then redirect the files 'Music', 'Pictures', etc. in my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD' to 'My Music', 'My Pictures', etc. in the 'My Data' partition.

In Windows XP or Windows 7, you can redirect those as using the methods below:
But I just don't know how to do that in Mac OS X, it seems that Mac OS X doesn't even provide a way for users to do so:

I saw a reply in macrumors forum and tried to move the 'Music', 'Pictures', etc. folders,
but it turned out that those files were being copied, not moved.
So I can't move the 'Music', 'Pictures', etc. to the partition 'My Data' and make aliases of them which can be put in my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD'.

So, are there only 3 options for me too choose?
(1) stop trying to fight Apple and Mac OS X on where it puts things, just put all the things in my home folder inside 'Macintosh HD', using only 1 partition
(2) move my home folder to the other disk partition, in this case, the partition 'My Data'
(3) can't redirect the location of Music', 'Pictures', etc. folders in my home folder in the 'Macintosh HD', but just simply put things in the 'My Data'.

App Store :: How To Bring Back Hidden Apps
Apps that have been closed with the X checkbox. Are they gone forever? I thought they were just hidden and could be brought back. I can't seem to find a way to do that. The problem started because the App Store says I have an app installed when it's not in my Applications folder. Where is it looking to see if an app is installed? There are no receipts I could find. 

is there any sensible way to order App Store purchases aside from purchase date, which seems the least useful.

MacBook Pro :: How To Put Files With An 'exclamation Point' On My Computer

Hence, I get the 'dreaded' exclamation point. Is there anyway I can have the files imported to my new PC without creating 'dreaded' duplicate files?
