OS X :: Damaged System Files

Feb 4, 2009

I noticed that some system files are damaged. They are owned by strange groups/owners and the file size is zero. Here are some examples:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 133312 20 sep 09:37 launchctl
-r-xr-xr-x@ 44093 root 8629311 0 4 mei 2008 link
-r-xr-xr-x@ 44093 8629310 wheel 0 4 mei 2008 ln
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel 73696 12 nov 02:51 ls

I repaired my HD and fixed some chain links, any idea to fix these files?

Applications :: ITunes Library - XML Files Damaged

May 15, 2009

I'm using OS X 10.4.11 and iTunes 8.1.1. I'm not very computer literate. When I started iTunes today, I went straight to copy some files into it from another folder. I got an error message about the .xml file and then told files were damaged (I think). I think iTunes started rebuilding the folders but I stopped it and ended up with only 30-something gb of tunes instead of almost 100 gb. All my music is still there in the iTunes/Music folder (I also have 30 back-up DVDs of the library), but I really, really want to be able to keep the Date Added information as this is how I view the music, as well as all the artwork I've manually added. The iTunes Library (Damaged) file is there, as are several Previous iTunes Libraries file.

After a web search, I did the following:
i. Quit iTunes and copied the most recent "Previous iTunes Library" file to the desktop.
ii. I trashed the iTunes Library.xml and iTunes Library (with the logo) files at the top of the folder structure.
iii. I then dragged the copied Previous iTunes Library file into the iTunes/iTunes Music folder and launched iTunes. Should it be dragged into the top-level iTunes folder or where?

It opens, but with absolutely nothing in it. I've tried dragging the Previous iTunes Library file everywhere I can think of (trashing the existing .xml and Library file each time), but still no joy. This latest Previous iTunes Library file is only a couple of months old and I'd much, much rather re-do the last two months music than lose the Date Added and all Playlists etc.

Applications :: Damaged ITunes Files - Starting Over

Oct 9, 2009

So the last couple of days iTunes has been hell for me. Couple of days ago, when I opened iTunes like any other time, I was presented with an error message saying my itunes library was damaged. Anyway, long story short, I've started over and created a new one and imported all my songs, podcasts, videos etc in. That all worked well, but I was still missing my precious play counts and ratings, though I was able to import my playlists. So what I did was import one of the itunes database files from the "previous itunes libraries" option. What happened then was that it removed all the files that I purchased after the date in which the database file was created. Annoying as I can't remember every song I've purchased.

The 2 main problems at the moment is that the files I purchased are already in my iTunes media folder, I found that out by just searching some songs I remember, but the matter of remembering each one is impossible. I contemplated the idea of "Add to library" but I think all that does is import everything again into the library rather than find any ones that aren't already in it. Is there anyway to get iTunes to automatically find the files that aren't already my library and just add those? Second problem is I have is the dreaded '!' next to many of my songs, again I am sure that I have these files in my media folder (I've checked), iTunes has just (for some reason) not found those files. Again, is there a way for iTunes to automatically find those files? As opposed to me finding and clicking on everyone of those '!'s and locating the files manually?

ITunes :: Damaged Library - Lost A Lot Of Files?

May 5, 2012

A few days ago, I opened iTunes and a notification appeared saying my Library was "damaged," and then proceeded to reopen with about 500 songs missing. I went through my iPod to find a few of the songs that were on it that were erased from my Library (I haven't synced my iPod since it happened for fear of losing the songs for good), intending to simply re-import them into my Library - but the files were nowhere to be found. I opened Finder and searched for quite a while, but I couldn't find a trace.  I've tried opening iTunes while holding down the Option key and choosing a Previous Library, but the most recent of the Previous Library .itl files is the same one - the one missing 500 songs.

OS X :: Music Files Disappeared - ITunes Library (damaged)

May 29, 2009

I was adding some music to iTunes downloaded through acquisition x, and my external HD (Seagate 320 GB) all of a sudden has no music files anywhere on it. The available space is still the same as when i had 40 gigs of music on it, and iTunes says on opening: "The file "iTunes Library" does not appear to be a valid iTunes Library file. iTunes has created a new iTunes Library and renamed this file to "iTunes Library (Damaged)."
I can't find any .xml or .itl or a (damaged) library file ANYWHERE. THEN the next dialog display says the iTunes application could not be opened, the required file is in use.

So used an applescript to unhide invisible files and folders, and the .Trash is empty, Finder's trash is empty, searched all OVER for any trace of the .mp3 files in my library, but they have disappeared. I also can't unmount or eject, verify or repair my External because it is "in use." The only process running i can see is finder, though I'm not sure.

OS X Mavericks :: How To Find 13 Files With Property List Data Is Damaged

Jun 28, 2014

How do I find 13 files which Property List data is damaged? Running DiskWarrior's Check files feature lists 13 files with "Property List data is damaged that can not be repaired"Although DiskWarrior gives the Location of each searching and looking in the usual .plist - locations I can not locate any of these files.All of them are labeled Properies.plist and BuildVersionHistory.plist As locations all start with: OS X Mavericks/.DocumentRevisions ending with: .pages/Metadata/ Since My Mavericks (up to date) still acts like Molasses I am thinking that this manyfiles with damaged Property List data.

MacBook Pro :: Getting Hot While Working - Fan Damaged?

Mar 17, 2010

I was browsing the internet for a couple of hours when I noticed the computer started getting super hot. The fans are going full blast, and the keyboard is also hot. The scary thing is, I'm not running anything but safari. I'm afraid that given where the fall happened (the back of the computer) that I have damaged one of the fans, because one side of the computer (the left) is burning hot and the right is just normal. What should I do? I dunno how much a new fan costs but I'm guessing not cheap.

OS X :: Any Way To Mount Damaged SD Card?

May 16, 2010

I have an A-Data brand 16 gig SDHC card which became corrupted/damaged in my Canon S90 (it looks like a lot of people are having problems with this card). When I put the card into the card reader attached to my Mac Pro, the volume does not show up on the desktop, or appear at all under Disk Utility. No error message of any kind pops up. If I look in Console, I see the following messages:

USBF:28693.905AppleUSBUHCI[0x11f5b000]::Found a transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds on bus 0x1d, timing out! (Addr: 0, EP: 0)

USBF:28725.906AppleUSBEHCI[0x1208e800]::Found a transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds on bus 0xfd, timing out! (Addr: 5, EP: 0)
The last two continue to repeat.

I have tried a variety of card recovery programs on my Mac, and on the Windows side booted under VMWare. But since the card is not mounting at all, none of these programs can see the card to try to recover anything. I really would like to recover these photos.

Mac Pro :: System Has Corrupt Files?

Jun 15, 2009

In all my years of using a modern computer (with hard drives) I've never once had a corrupt file. For most of that time I have used PCs.One thing that struck me when posting here, is how many people advises me on keeping an back up (as opposed to a raid mirror). I know back-ups make good sense anyway (and I do for my most important files) but it just made me wonder... how many of you have encountered a corrupt file whilst using a Mac/OS X?

OS8/System 7 :: Copy Files Between OS X 10.7.3 And OS 9.1?

Mar 13, 2012

Ive "NetPresenz 4.1" installed on Power Macintosh 8100/80AV Mac OS 9.1 to connect to MacBook Pro Mac OS X 10.7.3using Firefox plugin FireFTP -to share everything vice versa. (This is the only way that I know to transfer files between these to Systems! I'm right)

When FTP files (Docs & Apps) from OS X 10.7.3 to OS 9.1 in both modes Binary & ASCII, the OS 9.1 receive them as a generic file and cannot be recognized! Some of the applications, like installers, do not have extension. But when burring them on CD through OS X 10.7.3, and insert the CD into OS 9.1 it does recognize them.

PowerPC :: IBook G4 LCD Damaged After Drop

May 6, 2007

Our family iBook G4 1.42 MHz was dropped from the arm of a chair onto the carpet (two feet) by one of our children. The display is shown in the picture. I've taken the LCD off and then replaced it thinking a cable might have come loose, but it didn't fix the problem. Does anyone have an opinion as to what is damaged? Is it the LCD? The circuit board in the display housing, or something in the main case? I've not taken the main case apart, but I will try that next.

PowerPC :: What Part Of My Powerbook Is Damaged?

Nov 9, 2007

My powerbook G4 aluminum was dropped about 18 inches. The display is now hosed. Thus far I have found *nothing* wrong with the laptop except for the internal display only shows gray horizontal lines with black snow/static intermixed (still in horizontal lines).

What I'm thinking is that the display is probably actually fine and there is some little logic board in the display casing that is bad.

Here is what I've proven:

1. external monitor still works fine (means vid card is fine?)

2. swapped internal displays with another powerbook and was fully functional (means it's something in my display casing or my display itself)

3. backlight works fine (on my munged display)

4. i can see movement in the grayness when i move the mouse pointer around almost like the pointer was as wide as the screen and 90% translucent (i.e. there is a horizontal shaded bar i can move up and down with the trackpad)

I've already thought about upgrading to the 1440x960 display and being done with it. But then I started thinking it is probably a $40-50 part if I could just narrow it down.... And that would be the smart thing, rather than spending $300+

IMac :: DVD Drive Maybe Damaged - How To Check

A week ago I've been watching a movie with my girlfriend, and the CD suddenly got stuck.

Is there any way the iMac can scan if the drive if functioning 100% as intended?

Mac Mini :: Fan Damaged - Suitable Replacement?

Dec 27, 2009

Over the christmas holidays I decided to re-install my good old PowerPC Mac mini. Over this procedure by accident I attached the power cable from the Mac mini C2D (2007 model) to the PPC mini. Suddenly I noticed a hard humming noise coming from inside the Mac mini that didn't vanished after some shutdowns. I opened the Mac mini and noticed that the noise was coming from the fan. I cleaned it as good as possible but the noise ist still there. All other components are acting quite usual. But the fan is still making this newly humming noise.

So I think I have damaged the fan somehow and now I'm looking for a suitable replacement. Maybe you have any idea which fan's are good and silent?

I have a 500GB Seagate Free Agent Go HD and was wanting to use it for my Time Machine back up. I cant modify any of the files when I have it connected to my MBP. But I can modify everything when its connected to my PC, so I know this is a format issue. My question is how can I reformat the HD so I can use it for my back up off of the Airport Extreme?I really don't have the money to go out and buy the Free Agent Go for Mac, and this drive was just used to transfer data from my PC to the MBP when I first got it.
