OS X :: Connecting IPhone To Mac Via USB

Aug 27, 2009

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.

OS X :: Connecting IPhone To MBP Via Bluetooth

Apr 1, 2009

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.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting IPhone 3G Via Bluetooth

Aug 1, 2009

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.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Internet Through IPhone Possible?

Aug 20, 2009

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.

MacBook Air :: IPhone 6 Keeps Connecting And Disconnecting Via USB Cable

Dec 7, 2014

Had my iPhone 6 replaced today from an authorized service provider.

Wanted to sync the iPhone to my Macbook Air but when I connect it, it keeps on connecting and disconnecting.  

I tried to.. 

1. Insert the USB cable into the other port (there are 2 built-in ports)  This did not work; problem persists

2. Plug in my iPhone 5 into both ports The iPhone 5 is able to connect with no problems.

3. Plug in my iPhone 6 into another laptop with iTunes installed. The iPhone 6 is able to connect with no problems. 

It was only after some minor fidgeting with the end of the USB cable (near to the phone) that I am able to sync, but this is not a perm fix.

Is it my Macbook Air's USB port that is causing the problems? Or is it my new iPhone 6? (although I am doubtful since I can connect to another laptop)

MacBook Air, OS X Yosemite (10.10)

MacBook Air :: ITunes Not Connecting To IPhone - Pairing Record Missing

Apr 5, 2008

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.

OS X :: Ethernet Cable Connecting Ethernet Port To IPhone - Feasible?

May 20, 2009

I was just wondering if any other macrumorsmembers have been in the situation where there's no wifi, no decent 3G, but ethernet ports available to use, but you don't have a computer handy? Would it be possible that you could create an ethernet cable one end, dock the other, and literally connect e.g. an iPhone into the ethernet? At my place of work, there's no signal (dodgy GPRS/flakey Edge), some wifi, but in halls of residence, you get 1 ethernet port, and you can't put a wireless router onto it. It would seem that it would be an interesting solution, if it was possible.

Applications :: When Sync Iphone 3gs, It Says It Won't Copy File Because It Can't Be Played On Iphone?

Oct 6, 2010

I used Macthe Ripper to rip my sons chuggington dvd to my macbook pro, then i used handbrake to convert it, i managed to copy the converted file to my itunes library, but when i symc my iphone 3gs, it says it won't copy the file because it can't be played on my iphone.Several forums mention using the iphone/ipod touch preset when converting in Hnadbrake, now i may be a numpty, but i cant find this preset anywhere?! The closest thing i can see is an apple button/setting.when i selected apple and told it to play again, it said it would overwrite the prev converted verison. It took hours to convert the first time, if I do this, will it really work? Or will I waste another 3 hours?!

OS X :: IPhone 1G Dock Works And Fits Perfectly With IPhone 4?

Jun 24, 2010

I found out something interesting that brings back two years. Remember that old iPhone, the one that came out on June 2007. Well I think his accessories will save us some money for this new iPhone 4. I went inside my garage and found my old iPhone dock that Apple provided with the original iPhone. I said ?hey maybe this dock will fit the new phone.? And it did EXACTLY what I predicted. The new iPhone 4 dock FITS in the old original iPhone dock. I just saved myself $30 for a new dock!

Software :: Bluetooth Macbook Pro And IPhone Connect To My IPhone 3G?

Jul 23, 2009

I can't seem to get my Macbook Pro 13" 2.26Ghz (OS 10.5.7) connect to my iPhone 3G (OS 3.0) via bluetooth. In the Bluetooth Setup Assistant the macbook sees the iPhone 3G, but they don't connect after I accept the connect on the iPhone 3G. The codes on the Macbook and iPhone are the same and, therefore, should connect.

I've searched the Apple Discussions (support) but there is no answer there.

OS X :: VNC Setup For Connecting From XP?

Nov 2, 2007

I'm trying to connect to Leopard from my XP machine at work and I haven't been able to get it working thus far. Here's what I've tried:

1) Enabled Screen Sharing from the Sharing system panel.
2) Checked to make sure Screen Sharing is listed as being allowed to go through the Firewall.
3) Downloaded both the free version of RealVNC and UltraVNC.

RealVNC 4.1.2 gives me the following error: "No matching security types" UltraVNC 1.04 gives me the error: "Incompatible Version" Has anyone had any success connecting via VNC (w/o ARD installed) from XP? If so, what did they do and what XP VNC client?

OS X :: Connecting Both Mac And XP VM To VPN At Same Time?

Jan 22, 2008

I work at home on OS X and connect to my office VPN using Juniper's Network Connect software. I also run Windows XP on my OS X using VMWare, and sometimes connect to the office VPN on XP, using the windows NetworkConnect client. I have two questions:

1. I installed MS Office 2008 Standard on my Macbook. I cannot get MS Messenger to talk to the MS communications service through the VPN. I have apple mail talking to the exchange server just fine, and entourage is also talking to the exchange server. I configured messenger with the communication service name, by id, etc., but no luck. It says 'service unavailable try later', even though I can ping the service box using the same DNS name from the terminal command line. Has anyone with Office 2008 for Mac got MS Messenger to talk to their internal office system?

2. As a workaround I connected to work via XP on VMware and connected to the office IM system using MS Communicator on XP. That worked fine. However, as soon as use Juniper network connect to connect to the office VPN on XP/VMWare, my OS X Juniper Network Connect disconnects. And vice versa. I really want both OS X and my XP VM connected to the VPN at the same time. I'm using a NAT connection on VMWare; played around with a bridge connection without much luck but didn't try to hard. Anyone have any ideas here? Again I'm trying to find some way for my VMWare XP and OS X to both connect to the office VPN using Juniper NetworkConnect, at the same time.
