OS X :: Converting Upper Case File Names To Lower Case?

Nov 9, 2009

I have about 50 *.mp3's on my hard drive that have the file names in all upper case. When looking at them in itunes it drives me nuts....Is there a way to convert the uppercase file name to lowercase? I have googled but can't find anything. I do not want to do it manually, that would take a long time =( thanks, I'm crossing my fingers

OS X Mavericks :: Sort By Name Separates Upper / Lower Case

Aug 31, 2014

Since upgrading from Mountain Lion to Mavericks (10.9.4), I've noticed that I am no longer able to sort files by name and get one list in alphabetical order. I now get two, as Mavericks seems to be sorting out files beginning first with uppercase letters and then following with all lowercase letters:

Naturally, this makes it difficult to efficiently scan a directory for a file with a known name, as I'd have to look in two places. Terminal is showing file lists in the same manner. I have made sure that grouping is turned off, so as to not confuse the view while sorting. A related issue that I am dealing with is drop down menus in Apps or on websites where one can typically type the first few letters of an entry and snap right to it. However, typing "tim" will not bring up an entry in a font menu, for instance, if the thing I'm trying to get to is "Times New Roman" with an uppercase T. In this case, I would have to hold the shift key to get a capital letter and then let it go, so that the rest would be lowercase. 

I don't remember any Mac operating system before this being so insistent on separating letter cases.

OS X :: File Names Not Case-sensitive?

Oct 25, 2010

Every unix system that I've worked with has had case-sensitive file names. In other words, file name "foo" is different than "Foo" is different than "FOO" and so on. In the MAC OS X shell,

if I have a file name FOO, and I type "more foo", then the contents of FOO are displayed, instead of an error message saying "foo not found". It also means that I can't really create files "foo" and "FOO".

Is this something that Apple has implemented on top of unix? Is it possible to get around this, so that the names do indeed become case-sensitive? It doesn't seem like an inherent unix thing, because if I type "f <tab>", and the only file in the directory.

Safari :: Links Are Appearing As Upper Case A's In Boxes?

May 10, 2012

I was trying to fix something with the tabs in Safari (they kept reloading/refreshing every time I clicked back on one) and so I unchecked "Use multi-process windows" under the debug menu. However, now a lot of the links on websites appear as a bunch of A's inside little boxes (that sounds weird so I've included a picture below as an example) I feel like maybe trying to fix the tabs issue simply complicated things and now it's difficult to navigate on some sites

MacBook :: Uni Late 09 Liquid Damage - Upper Case Replacement

Sep 23, 2010

Being the poor college kid that I am, and knowing a bit about hardware repair, I've been buying macbooks on craigslist, etc. and reselling them. I just got a Polycarbonate Macbook that had liquid spilled on (she said it was iced tea). It wouldn't turn on so I checked out the logic board and I cleaned it with alcohol although it seemed clean. I noticed during this that the LED on the power adapter was green, though very dim. When I unhooked the cable connecting the upper case, it turned bright green. Basically what I'm wondering and now that I think about it its probably a stupid question, since I have no way of testing this until I buy a new upper case is do you think it's worth it to try and fix or should I sell it?

OS X :: PC Server Name Starts Lower Case In Sidebar

When I open the Finder and look at the "Shared" section in the Sidebar, I see the following:
"logic" is a PC Server (specifically, a Windows 2003 SBS Server with Exchange 2003) on my network. My question is simple: How to get this item to show as "Logic", with a capital "L"? It bugs me that "logic" starts with a lower-case "l".

OS X :: Unable To Know About Case-Sensitive To Case-Ignorant?

Jun 14, 2010

I am working on restoring a Time Machine backup from Leopard to a clean installation of Snow Leopard. The only problem I'm facing is that the Leopard backup is on a case-sensitive drive (and the Snow Leopard drive is set up, by default, as case-ignorant).

I have scoured the Web the last two days and have not found a definitive answer to my question: Is there a way to transfer the data from the Time Machine backup on the case-sensitive drive to the case-ignorant Snow Leopard drive?

Yesterday I ran across a tutorial explaining how this might be accomplished using SuperDuper! but a commenter explained that Disk Utility could be used and was much easier.

I tried the Disk Utility method but it didn't work, and I ran out of time to give the SuperDuper! option a try. Does anyone know if it, or even Carbon Copy Cloner, might solve my problem?

MacBook Pro :: Sleeve Versus Case Versus No Case Or Sleeve

Jun 25, 2010

Soon i will be getting a Mac(i think) and was wondering about a case. Since i want a Macbook Pro with the Unibody Housing i want it to be safe. Now i can't decide if i want a case or a Sleeve. Now the Case might have heat issues even with the vents that are on the case. The sleeve won't have that issue but will it be more prone to scratching the Macbook it self? Or should i go no case and just sorta deal with the scratches. There is a Price difference between the Sleeve and the Case. About $20 Cdn more for the Case.

PowerPC :: How To Get PB Case

Jan 28, 2008

I have a Powerbook G4, 15-inch, and I need a case for it. What I really want is one like this from Incase


Except that I need it to have handles. I could swear that at one time I saw a case by Incase at an Apple store that was just what I wanted but I was stupid and did not buy it and now cannot find it anywhere.

Basically I want as minimal of a case as possible - it need not store anything but the computer itself (such as power cords, etc.). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Mac :: MBP Case Gap After HDD Replacement?

May 19, 2009

I was wondering if it is possible to have the non-Unibody MBP top case sit flush with the bottom after replacing the HDD. On a couple previous generation MBPs, I, nor my local Apple Authorized Repair Center were able to replace the hard drive without leaving a noticeable gap between the top case and the bottom. I would really like to put a SSD in my computer, but would not like my machine to have that terrible looking gap. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to prevent this gap, if it all possible?

Hardware :: Where Can I Get A Sleeve Case For The New MBP

Oct 29, 2008

I'm assuming most if not all the sleeve cases for the MBP are for the old model. Considering the new model is thinner and a tad bit wider, the sleeves currently available obviously wont suffice.

Any ideas if there are any out there yet?? Where should I look? ebay? apple store?

PowerPC :: Replacing Case On G5?

Dec 19, 2010

So recently I found a cheap powermac G5 on ebay and won the deal and all, but when the computer arrived it was horribly dented. It was packed with on piece of under a 1/2" Styrofoam. In the end I got a full refund for the computer and the seller just said that I could keep it if I want it. So I wanted the thing on my desk so I went ahead and bought another case for it. Now here's the question, has anyone done this or knows how to do this? I want to keep all of the internals inside for it not to become a month or so long project in my spare time. I am not sure on a tool that would let me get up into the edges. If you want to see some video of the unboxing of the case and at the end some footage of the dented one and how bad it is go here.
