OS X :: Adding Files To Previously Written CD Possible?
Jun 24, 2010
I used to be able to add files (pictures) to CD-R that was previously used. Now if I try to add more files to it, it tells me that CD can no longer be modified. Means that it was automatically closed. How can I continue adding files to a same CD without closing it after?
My Macbook pro wouldn't turn on. I booted to the installation DVD and installed OS X to the external drive. Once the installation was done, I was able to access my laptop without any problem and I retrieved all my files from the USERS Folder. I tried to copy my old files to the external disk, before formatting the system’s internal drive and reinstalling OS X.
However, at every attempt, I’d get “some data can’t bet read or written (Error Code -36)”. I ran a Verify/Repair Disk Permissions and this is what I got:
I own an iPad mini Gen1 with a ton of music, apps etc. from my old computer which broke down recently. I'd like to sync my iPad to my Time Capsule, apps, backups and all without losing any files. I still have access to the old Apple ID. So, how do I sync without deleting everything on it? I already deleted my entire iPod trying to do this.
I have a MacBook Pro with Leopard and the latest iTunes.
For some weird reason iTunes starts to add every file twice. And I don't mean that it just keep the original, it actually adds the file two times in the iTunes Music folder.
I just added 300 Beatles Songs but now it added every single song twice...I have 600 songs now. This happened now and then before and its REALLY annoying. Especially when I need to delete every single file manually. The show duplicates just shows both files but I still need to highlight every 2nd file and then delete it.
My System: Mac Mini running OSX 10.5.8. This is a Pentium processor based device and I have 1 gb of ram a 60 gig hard drive and using a seagate 1.5 TB external for all my media and documents. I am also using a windows system keyboard and mouse (I just replaced my old windows system with the Mac Mini). I have two mp3 players: The first one is made by LG (its sold under a different brand name but it was built by LG) the device shows in the finder's "get info" as MS-DOS (FAT32) format and has 4gb storage space. The other is sold under the Disney brand name the format is MS-DOS (FAT16) it has 1gb of storage space.
I am using each as a USB mass storage when adding and removing mp3 files. I am used to doing this in the windows environment, and I realize that the OSX environment is not the same so I am confused as to how I can successfully delete files from the devices and add new files to the devices. So far this is what I am doing
1. Tether device with USB cable. 2. Open device in Finder window. 3. Highlight files I would like to remove then select "move to trash". 4. Select "empty trash" to clear space on device.
At this point the finder window will show the space has been freed on the device for me to add new files. When I attempt to do so the device says there is not enough free space to do so. Please save the "get an ipod" comments. These devices are for my 10 year old and 8 year old, they were gifts they received and I am not going to buy a new device for them.
Is there a way to add files to multiple iTunes libraries simultaneously?
I currently store all my media on a network drive; so I don't want to copy the same file to multiple locations. Instead, after the DVD is ripped I'd like to have the movie added to two different libraries. Simply copying the iTunes library from my primary computer won't work. The library on my primary computer, has all my personal song ratings and playlists. The second computer is connected to a TV to be used as a HTPC and is more of a family computer. I would like to be able to maintain different playlists for this computer.
Essentially is there an easy way to make sure any new files added (or modified) to my primary iTunes library are also added to another iTunes library?
I don't mean tags, but short comments attached visually to files within the Finder? like a sticky note. I have huge image archives, and want to add short comments to certain pics / files, which are visible by an icon as I scroll through.
I'm not after a third-party solution, I prefer to access my images via Finder (which I find the best and least-fuss image browser since Snow Leopard), just wondered if anyone had made such an app?
I am still pretty new to Mac and OSX and i had a question about itunes.
Ok, So if i add say 1 album and 1 Movie. Lets say the the album is in My Music folder and the Movie is in My Movies folder.
Now if i go to add to library in iTunes and add them then i am done. If i go and delete the 2 files from the folders i notice that the album and movie is still in itunes and still playable? How is that if i deleted them from the folders on my Mac?
Does iTunes actually COPY the movie and music i add to its own folder? so that way if i do delete it from my mac, its still in a iTunes folder somewhere?
Like with windows, WMP copies the location of that media, So if i add a album and later delete it from my PC and go and try to play it in WMP, it will say NOT FOUND or just no longer show it.
Reason i ask this is because i do not want to have double of everything on my HD and take up more space then i should...
MacBook os x 10.4 120GB Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz 1 GB
my mac was getting really slow so i wiped and reloaded the hd. it was zippy for a couple hours, then started bogging down again. i saw huge amounts of data being written to the hd when i wasn't using my computer, 10+ GB over a couple days i was only checking email. how can i find out what program is writing to my hd?
i bought my macbook last thursday its my first mac and i love it but i have a question i thought the macbooks where suppose to hace 2gb 1066 mhz but when go to about this mac it says i have 1067 is this normal or is there something wrong?
also last night when i was about to shut down my pc i went to the little apple but there was something weird
every single thing was reapeated
sleep sleep restart restart shut down shut down etc etc
I am trying to copy about 12000 songs from my internal HD to an external so I can wipe my drive clean and start again. The problem is that I keep getting this "disk cannot be read from or written to" every few hundred songs. The songs have come from all over, and there is no common thread to how I acquired any of them. I've actually got this error when trying to copy several different file types to an external HD and I've no earthly idea why. I'm sure the drive is riddled with irreparable errors which is why I want to wipe it, but I need to get a lot of these files over before I do so. Can anyone recommend some kind of utility that will identify and/or repair these corrupt files so I don't have to stop and start the transfer every 30 seconds?
I have a problem when I'm transferring files from my powerbook g4 to external hard disks such as lacie or ipod. It keeps popping up "the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in file AVI could not be read or written. (Error Code -36). This happens just for certain files, not all of them. I don't know whether the hard disk has an issue or the file is corrupted and if the file is corrupted I hope there is a program that can restore it.
Hey how you doin? I went last night to re-sync my ipod to my PC and I got the following error box ...."ipod disk could not be read from or written to" I just synced it two nights prior to this problem, what exactly is wrong with my ipod and how can I fix it?
When ever I try to move a file from an FTP server to my desktop I always get an error saying some data cant be read or written. I have tried it with like five different FTP's and I get the same error. Here is a grap of the error.
It seems that when people talk Kernel Panics on forums that I visit everybody says they are caused by hardware. Now I am confused by this as yes as people say KPs can be caused by hardware, but surely badly or incorrectly written software can also cause KPs, as in badly written Kernel extensions are also a cause are they not ? I am trying to get to the bottom of all the Kernel Panics people are getting on Mac Pros, because all these reports seem to have appeared since Snow Leopard raised its ugly head.
I've done a search for this and cannot seem to find a definitive solution. I've just upgraded to a larger Verbatim external drive and when I go to take files off my existing external drive across to it, it keeps coming up with the error: The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in *** can't be read or written. This only happens in certain folders. I am able to copy some folders across, but some I get this error. I've tried verifying both drives, formatting the Verbatim one for FAT32, repairing, but nothing seems to work. Some points that may be worth mentioning:
- The original external drive is formatted as MAC OS X Extended Journaled. - Some of the folders I am having trouble with may have been originally created on a PC.
I would like to keep the new drive as FAT32, so I can use it on a PC if I need to down the road. I read something about using dot_clean via terminal, but I can never seem to get the path correct to my external drive. (The name of the external drive is MASTER HD) Would appreciate if anyone else has had the same problem could tell me what they did to solve it? Not sure why some files will copy over and some wont?
When ever I click on the itunes or finder icons, I get this error message: "The itunes Library .itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have written permission for this file". I read somewhere that for itunes it may have gotten stuck as a read only file and you can fix this by going to my documents --> music --> itunes --> properties --> unselect "read only". But when I click on "my documents" it tells me that I have to open it with "finder", and "finder" gives me the same error message as itunes.
I just replaced my damage HD (original HD) to my MBP 2009 unibody. So far, I like the SSD drive, and I use it for my internal storage. I've been read a fews article online, but it seems I don't find the answer. My concern is, How do I reduce TBW on SSD? if I play video (like youtube, Netflix, or Hulu) or play online games, would it be increase my TBW? So far, I set up my download file to my external HD. Whenever I download file, application, or etc, it would go to my external HD. Second question, What can I do to lower the use of SSD? Therefore, my SSD will last long like 3-5 years perhaps. Third question, since Samsung Magician Software can't run on MBP. How do I check my TBW and the health of my SSD?
I am a Mac convert now two years and was beginning to truly believe Macs are impervious to the hair pulling and teeth gnashing so often associated with PC's but...I have been repeatedly trying to write to my WorldBook NAS which has previously worked beautifully but everytime I try to write anything remotely large, I get the message,
"An unexpected error has occurred the file could not be written to the disk. Error Code 51"
My NAS is 2TB and attached to my D-Link wireless. I have used it exclusively for my iTunes library and it has worked very nicely.I experienced this the first time with one of three movies I am adding to my library. After a couple tries, I decided to let iTunes copy it to the folder in it's process of adding it to the library and it worked fine. The following day I repeated the process and now I get the message through iTunes as well.
I have two Mac's -- roughly 2007 Mac Book Pro's. One is rather beat up. Both are running the latest 10.6.4. I got a CD with data on it from a film processing shop and put it into the Mac and the Mac eventually gave me the same prompt as you get when you put in a fresh, unburnt, writable CD. I asked the Mac to eject the CD which it did.
I went back to the shop and they could mount the CD just fine (I think they had a PC). I tried a second time on the Mac -- same thing. I then put it in an AIX system and it could read it just fine too. So, the CD is "ok" as far as AIX and Windows is concerned but the Mac sees it as a fresh new unburnt CD.
