I have a macbook pro MAC OS x and have started having issues with my computer's screen going black while working in iphoto. The only thing I can do is to press the power button to power down and then reboot. My memory is fine on the computer. All updates have been completed. Best I can tell, this only occurs while using iphoto.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected.
I am a first time MacBook Pro user. I bought this laptop for my business and, when on travel, will need to connect my laptop to the Internet wirelessly. Can I connect my MacBook to the Internet through my I-Phone? Will I need to add software to one or both systems (I-Phone and MacBook) to do this?
As a backup, are there any pay-as-you-go aircards that actually work on a Mac system? I have heard/read negative things about the Virgin Mobile Aircard. Bottom line is that I need reliable connectivity on occasion, thus I do not need a 1 or 2 year contract.
I am having so many problems since I downloaded it. My iTunes won't connect to my Apple TV, the mouse continually stops working, iPhoto crashes all the time, and everything is so much slower! I can't stand it! Why hasn't Apple put out a fix?
I used to have all my data on my MacBook and since I bought the Air I started transferring everything to it. Everything was fine until I tried to hook my iphone on the usb and sync it. The iphone drops the connection with the itunes and the whole syncing progress cancels. I've tried every possible advice I found in other forums but nothing worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled itunes, I tried installing earlier version of itunes, I restored my iphone (on my other mac), I manually deleted some itunes program files before reinstalling the new itunes....nothing nothing nothing. I keep getting error messages like:
"ITunes could not connect to the iphone because the pairing record is missing" "Application AppleMobileDeviceHelper quit unexpectedly" "ITunes could not connect to iphone because an invalid response was received from the device" And every time i try to restore iphone from the air i get an error(6).....
While everything works great on the old Macbook, the Macbook Air seems to have problems connecting with the phone. The funny thing is that even if the connection between iphone and itunes drops, I can still manage to "see" the iphone from "iphoto" and import pics on my Air. I really don't know what's going on here and there seems to be no one that knows what I should do. Furthermore, when i plug my scanner on the air, it doesn't respond at all. It's as if the usb slot ain't powerful enough to connect with those devices. The scanner also works great on my old Macbook.
Bit of a newbie here with my MBP. I imported my photos from my iPhone to iPhoto, but they don't show up in Places. I wasnt connected to the internet at the time. Will this matter? What am I doing wrong?
Whenever I try and open iPhoto, a message saying 'the application iPhoto quit unexpectedly'. I have googled this phrase and found a string from a user with similar problem on this forum. http://macosx.com/tech-support/mac/iphoto/4681.html
Unfortunately, I tried all the suggestions in this string including multiple reinstallations from the bundled software disc of the software but nothing works. I've tried repairing permissions, deleting the file com.apple.iphoto.plist in preferences. I've deleted and recreated the iphoto folder in Pictures etc. I am using a MacBook Pro which is 6 months old. The only thing that I can think off is that a while back I uninstalled various bundled software packages that came with Mac OS X that I thought I wouldn't need to free up disc space. I can't remember which ones unfortunately however I can't see why this would affect iPhoto if I've reinstalled it and updated it. I don't want to reinstall Mac OS X by the way.
I've tried deauthorizing and reauthorizing the computer, deleting the com.apple.iTunes.plist file, restarting, connecting at different times... nothing seems to work. I've got the most recent updates on both iTunes and iphone. iTunes works fine on its own, but just gives me the spinning ball whenever I connect my iphone.
I'm trying to connect an iPhone to a Mac Mini via USB. The cable is known to be good. The USB ports all work with other USB devices. The iPhone works with USB devices on other computers AND if I plug it directly into the wall. When restart the computer with the iPhone plugged in, it connects while the OS is not in the ROM. As soon, however, as the OS starts to boot again, the iPhone disconnects.
I plug the iPhone in and nothing happens, including not indicating that it's charging (this is the problem). With the iPhone still plugged in, I restart the Mac. After all the open applications quit and the finder disappears, the iPhone chirps indicating that it's connected and charging. It stays charging while the Mac cycles through the rest of the restart. When, however, the Mac gets to the point where it starts booting the OS, the iPhone chirps again indicating that it's been disconnected.
Every time I hit the slideshow button on iPhoto '09, I get the spinning rainbow wheel and then the app will eventually crash. This is very frustrating. Is anyone else having this problem with the new iLife version as well? Can you test for me using a large photo album that this might be happening to other users too? I refuse to believe that my MBP can't handle it.
So I just put a new WD 750GB HD into my 2006 white Macbook. (Core Duo 2.0 Gigahertz, 2 GB RAM, 10.4.11 OS X). Everything seems to be working fine, but for some reason iPhoto crashes incessantly. I tried rebuilding the iPhoto library and while it can rebuild the thumbnails, when it gets to rebuilding the actual library it crashes. I can't get anything off of my iPhone. What's the deal?(iPhoto 6.0.6)
My initial pleasure with the speed of my new-to-me Mac Pro (8 core) is turning to frustration as Lion and iPhoto get glitchier and slower with each update. Tonight, while simply saving a file in iPhoto, it crashed and took 97 seconds to reopen and stabilize (SBOD). I've seen posts as far back as early 2010 regarding iPhoto '11 being slow and unstable. Before being forced to "upgrade" my iPhoto library to accomodate the latest iPhoto update, I saved a copy, with the notion of returning to the previous iteration of iPhoto which always served me well. Has anybody tried this with Lion? I'm also considering going back to Snow Leopard.
Itunes used to work fine, but now crashes every time I plug my iphone in. It gets partway through the sync, then quits with no error message. If I stop the syncing, itunes is fine. If I then select my iphone in the left hand column, iTunes crashes. My iphone is set to wirelessly sync. Am I supposed to affect any change if itunes won't allow me to change any syncing settings. Really, if it is wireless, it needs to be configured from the phone, not itunes...
I am using iTunes to play music via airplay to my apple TV as well as the headphone jack on the computer connected to an external speaker for a multiple room setup. I tried to use the request feature in iTunes DJ, which allows others connected to your wifi to request upcoming songs using the remote app for iPhone and iPad. iTunes will quit unexpectedly once more than 1 person has connected to make a request. is there a way to limit how many devices can connect at the same time?
I am using 10.7.3 with a MacBook Pro late 2011 and the most the recent version of itunes. I have tried restarting and having itunes be the only app that is open.

I am having trouble connecting my iPhone to my MBP via Bluetooth. Both devices are paired, I have entered the code that the MBP has asked me to input into the iPhone. Both devices are paired to each other yet they are not connected. For the most part I have never had any kind of luck using bluetooth on any device except for the Mighty Mouse I just bought.
I have just got a new iMac and I proceeded to sign into my iTunes account and download all my music to my music library. I had a clear out and also purchased a few more albums so the library on my iPhone now looks pretty much nothing like the one on the mac. I'm trying to sync it but it won't sync, someone said something about needing to register my iPhone with the iMac or something
