MacBook :: Unable To Recognize Newly Installed Optical Drive

Jun 24, 2009

So, I have a 13" white MacBook that is about three years old. Recently, the Combo Drive stopped reading CD-Rs (possibly all discs in general, but I only ever use it to burn CDs, so I wouldn't have ever known), so I decided to try to install a new Super Drive myself.

Following a guide on [URL], I installed the new drive, but when I turned my computer back on, it was not recognizing the drive at all. System Profiler was saying "This system does not contain any ATA devices. If you have any ATA devices installed, check that they are connected and powered on." I was then able to reinstall my old Combo Drive, which my computer recognized immediately. Thinking that I may have just not connected something tightly the first time, I tried a second time. Same thing happened.

So, my question is, is there anything I may be missing or does this definitely mean the drive is defective? I just want to make sure I'm not sending back a functional drive before I go ahead and do so.

Intel Mac :: Unable To Install Office 2011 On Newly Installed HD

May 18, 2012

I had to replace a dead hard drive on my old 2007 iMac. Now I am unable to install Office 2011 on an iMac that had this version of office before the old HD died. I know there are restrictions on the number of installations. Must I purchase Office 2011 again or is there another legal option?

Mac Pro :: Installed 2 Super-drives - Unable To Detect By The System?

Jun 30, 2012

I installed 2 ne w Optical drives in a 2008 3,1 MacPro Quadcore.After installation and booting up, the system profiler failed to show ANY optical drives and I was unabel to open/eject the drives naturally. I then unplugged the bottom one and rebooted and the top drive (still plugged in ) worked. I then shut down and unplugged the top drive and plugged in the bottom drive - rebooted and now the BOTTOM drive is recognized. When BOTH drives are plugged in , the system fails to show either of them.So when individually plugged in it's fine but when bith are plugged in neither of the drives are detected or operate.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Populate Newly Installed ITunes And IPhoto With The Imported Data Stored Under The 'old' Username?

Jun 9, 2012

My MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8) was going slow. I decided to reinstall OSX. All my data was backed up to my compatible external HD. I then erased my MacBook HD, and reinstalled OSX off the install disc and bundled applications disc.  I went through the steps to set up the administrator account, and did all the other things in the instal process.  I then did all necessary software updates. When all that was complete, I connected my external HS and opened migration assistant, and imported all the data from the latest backup.  I now find that all my backed up data from before is under a different user account - named as in the old OSX set up. How do I populate my newly installed iTunes and iPhoto with the imported data stored under the 'old' username? Shouldn't this have happened automatically?

MacBook :: Newly Installed HDD Not Recognized

Aug 5, 2009

I have the 13" MacBook Unibody with the 250 GB HDD. I wanted to replace that with my Seagate Freeagent Go 500 GB external HDD. I took off the enclosure and replaced the 250 gb with the 500 gb but the computer won't recognize the new 500gb HDD. All I get is a blinking question mark during start up which I know stands for HDD issues. The 500 gb HDD is working fine btw, I tested it after I took it out of the enclosure.It is a Serial ATA 2,5" and works just fine. Is the Macbook 13" Unibody not supporting 500 gb HDDs maybe? I checked the specs for the MacBook Pro 13" which is supposed to be the same as the one I have and it does say that it supports 500gb HDD.

MacBook Pro :: VirtualBox Does Not Recognize The Newly Installed Extra Memory

I have installed 4GB of extra ram to my MBP 13" (late 2010) to increase the performance of virtual machines. Though the VirtualBox doesn't recognize the 8GB of ram when i try to create a new machine for Windows XP 32-bit or Windows 7 64-bit. I haven't tried it with other operating systems. I have also reinsalled the VirtualBox but it didn't work.

Hardware :: How To Access Newly Installed HD

Nov 15, 2008

The 160GB HD on my 2x2GB G5 has only got 7.9GB left due to memory intensive software: FCP, Logic 8 etc. I therefore installed a 2nd drive, a 500GB HD, bought from an Apple store. Its icon sits on the desktop, so everything is fine.

I am self-taught with everything computer and usually find answers in my computer books, but not this time.
How can I now utilize the new 500GB disk as my working disc?/Startup disc? I believe, the OS + other software must be installed on the new drive, or can it be transferred from the nearly depleted 160GB drive. I do not have much content in photos or other files on this drive, its mainly software.

I edit FCP on external LaCie drives (300+500GB)The newly installed disc does not show up on in preferences/startup disc panel, probably because it does not contain the OS.

Mac Pro :: Using Newly Installed Radeon 4870

Jun 10, 2009

I bought the PC version of the ATI Radeon HD 4870 and flashed it with the mac ROM. Everything went fine. I then moved the original card to slot 2 and put the new ATI card into slot one. I connected the monitor to the new ATI card and booted up. I get the apple logo, but after that, my monitor loses signal. If i plug the monitor into the original card (which is now in slot 2), it works fine. The desktop shows up. Any ideas on what is going on here? Is there anyway to check what hardware is installed in the computer? Any utilities?

Software :: Where Is Newly Installed MS Messenger Hiding?

Feb 22, 2006

I just installed Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac on an iBook with a G3, 500 Mz processor and 384 MB RAM running OS 10.3.9. One of the components was MSN Messenger version 4. When I opened it, it said a newer version was available so I downloaded and installed version 5 for Mac. But the icon in the dock continued to be for version 4 and each time I clicked on it I was prompted to once more download the newer version.

I did this several times, then deleted the version four from the applications and from the dock before reinstalling the version five. This time the messenger is on the computer but is not in the applications nor in the dock. Where is it so I can drag its icon to the dock? I know it is on the computer because when I clicked on recent items it opened, and also when I reinstalled again it opened, but I can't find where it is hiding.

Windows On Mac :: Newly Installed 7 Taking Up Too Much Space?

Nov 12, 2010

So I just installed windows 7 x64 (bootcamp) on my iMac 27" mid 2010.

It seems to be taking up 11 GB more than there really is on the partition.

Partition size: 33 GB
Used space: 22 GB (in reality 11 GB)
Free space: 11 GB (in reality 22 GB)

I know for a fact that a newly installed windows 7 is not this huge.

Also I selected all the folders and checked the size and it simply doesn't match what the Drive Properties tells me.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Newly Installed Apps Not Launching

Mar 23, 2012

I notice that any new apps I try and install aren't launching.I tried to install the 30 day trial of Textmate and when clicking on App in Applications folder the icon just bounces on the dock permenantly.Clicking it again makes it disapear form the dock. I then tried to install BetterTouchTool and when I click on that absolutely nothing happens.Any apps installed prior open up fine.I did a Repair Disk and Disk Permissions, but nothing.I know it may be a loaded question potentially based on other apps I have installed, but hoping someone else has encountered and can at least point me on the right track.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Get Any Newly-installed Application To Launch

Apr 20, 2012

So everything installed on my Lion iMac works absolutely fine. However, I recently tried to re-install Appfresh (an application updater), so I used Appcleaner to uninstall it, grabbed a new download, dragged it to Applications as normal, double-clicked it.. nothing. The icon sits in my dock, and the indicator pulses, continuously, but the application never appears. It's not in the Force Quit menu, and Activity Monitor has no trace of it either. 

I thought, okay, something up with Appfresh. But I've since tried a couple of other apps, and a game (Botanicula), and the exact same thing happens. I've done nothing new in the way I've installed them, opened their .dmg files, and dragged the application into Applications, completely normally, but they all do the "sit in the dock and nothing else" thing. If I left-click them once in the dock, they vanish, and that's all I hear of them. I've tried Disk Utility to do both verify and repair permissions to both the disk and the partition, but that hasn't solved the problem. I'm running the latest 10.7.3 with all patches to remove Flashback, etc.

Hardware :: Newly Installed Superdrive Not Recognized In IMac?

The old one crapped out on me, so I installed one from OWC on a iMac6,1, I have taken it apart many times to disconnect it and reconnect it. Could the ribbon be bad? If so, where can I get a part number? Or is it a generic ribbon for superdrives?

OS X :: Moved Installed Programs In Newly Created Folders?

Jan 17, 2010

Newbie from windows to Mac SL. I download two programs for my Cannon scanner and found them installed in Applications. I created a new folder called Cannon and moved both programs into it. In the folder, there is now a file called "Open in Finder" as well which I did not add.

1. Is it ok to move files into a new folder this way?
2. Is it normal to have "Open in Finder" also inserted in the folder?

Reason I am asking is, when I initially run the scanner program I get this multiple colour ball momentarily. It is almost as if the OS is looking for the location of the scanner program - similar to an hour glass in windows. Therefore, should I delete the folder I created and reinstall the scanner programs? If so, should I delete the programs first, then the folder, or go ahead and delete the folder with the programs in it?

Software :: Selecting Newly Installed Print Driver?

Nov 19, 2009

First, I'm a noob on MACs so forgive the nooby nature of the question.

I'm setting up a printer on a Macbook to use a printer shared from Windows 7. Followed the tutorials I found for the network side of things and that seems to be fine (Mac send unprintable files to the Windows print queue).

The problem is the print driver on the Mac. The printer is a HP PSC 1315. It's not on the list when you Select Drivers during printer setup and even after loading the HP 111 updated, still no joy.

I downloaded the 1315-specific driver package and ran the installation but I have no idea how to find the driver to use during printer setup.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Start Up Newly Formatted Mac

Apr 8, 2012

I have just erased my hard drive (after backing up) and installed Mac OS X Snow leopard from my install disk, I then copied all my files over from the backup (using time machine) and it said everything was successful and that i should login with my password.  

However, the password i had previously used did not work and neither did leaving it blank or anything else i could think of so i booted using the install disk and reset my password. I restarted and couldn't get past either a blank blue screen or more often a grey screen with a small wheel on it. I tried logging in with safe mode and got to the login screen but my keyboard didn't work (despite being able to hold shift to boot in safe mode) and though i could move my mouse, i couldn't click on anything. 

I have tried resetting the PRAM, Repairing the disk and its disk permissions but nothing changes.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Itunes Unable To Recognize Ipod 4th Gen

Apr 8, 2012

I tried to put new music on my iPod. This has consistently been a problem because Itunes says that the ID that i'm getting my applications from is not the same as the one issued to the iTunes application on the computer I get my music from ( because the iTunes on this computer has no purchased music, only free promotional mixtapes, so it isn't linked to any iTunes account). This forces me to have to restore my iPod to factory quality every time I want to apply new music to my iPod. 

This time the problem is worse- I updated Itunes earlier to the newest version ( I hadn't updated my music or Ipod software in a very long time), and now Itunes is unable to recognize my Ipod. I get the error message, "iTunes was unable to load data class information from sync services" after iTunes tries to recognize the iPod for a sync for about 30 seconds. 

I read this article; [URL] which suggests that I update to the newest version of iTunes, then reset my sync history. The problem now? I can't even get the preferences tab to load. Whenever I try to load the preferences tab, iTunes freezes up and becomes unresponsive. This is extremely frustrating. I have to go through all this troubleshooting, errors, and updating just because my iTunes isn't registered because it has no purchased music? 


>iTunes won't respond to my 4th gen iPod

>I get apps from the app store off of my father's Apple ID that I'm posting from

>Causes me to have to restore my Ipod to factory settings everytime I want to get new music for my iPod because my iTunes application on my computer isn't registered to an Apple ID

OS X Mavericks :: (10.9.4) Detect Recently Installed Unauthorized Remote Control Applications

Sep 5, 2014

One day ago I allowed remote access control to my Mac Book Pro OS10.9.4 to a company pretending to be Apple Authorized Online Services. After discovering this was a scam I need to be sure that they didn't leave or installed any app (hidden or not) and if so, how to delete it to prevent them to access my Mac again.  

It would also be useful if there is a way to find out which information they may have accessed during the mentioned "session".

Windows On Mac :: Vista Installation On Newly Installed Drive - Need Step By Step Guide

May 23, 2009

I am about to install a new (blank) hard drive to my existing 2009 Mac Pro. The Drive will then be used solely for windows (won't be a partition, but a stand alone drive, separate from my other drives which are Raid).

On the apple web site, it says that the OSX software installed will provide drivers etc. Does that mean that I should:

1) connect the drive
2) format the drive under OSX
3) run the bootcamp assist...
