ITunes :: The File Library.itl Cannot Be Read After Operating System Reinstall?

Jul 1, 2012

After having weeks of airport issues, the Genius Bar folks decided that reinstalling my operating system was the only opin to fix what they think is a software issue.  After restoring all my data using my last backup and doing all software updates again, I am getting an error when trying to open itunes - 'the file itunes library.itl cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of itunes.  Would you like to download itunes now?.  The two oprions I am given are 'quit' and 'download itunes'.  If I chose to download itunes it tells my there are no updates!  I have also plugged my ipod into my laptop and it doesn't recognize it.  What should I do??  I am totally lost. When I ran the updates last night it showed itunes updating, so I am unclear as to why it isn't even opening.

I made an image of my Windows XP laptop drive using Macrium. I can see the image file there on one of my Mac Pro's internal drives, but Im not able to select in Fusion.. Is there a way to make a Fusion VM from this image? If not, how do I go about creating a VM from my laptops's HD? I'm using Fusion 2.6.

OS X :: Hiding File Inside Image File / Unable To Access Hidden File?

Mar 24, 2008

I managed to successfully hide the file: cat picture.jpg hidden.rtf.zip > picture2.jpg

results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and hidden.rtf.zip. I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.

OS X :: How To Upgrad G4 Operating System?

May 3, 2010

I have a mirrored drive door G4 [dual 1.25 GHz] with 10.2.8. The newest browser I can run is Firefox That browser will not successfully run some sites. Monster.com, for example.

I am unemployed just now and cannot afford to spend money on a new Intel machine. I have critical need of being able to run what I have here now:

Photoshop CS [no number suffix]
InDesign 3.0.1
Microsoft office X, 10.1.6
Filemaker pro 6 [although I do also own 7]
Text Soap 3
Roxio Toast 5.2.1

I have been told I could upgrade this G4 to 10.4. Supposedly that would allow me to run a current browser. I don't know if that is true, it is just something I was told.

I have multiple fears about making such an upgrade. First, where would you get the discs to do that, and how could you get any patches or upgrades that were created subsequent to its introduction?

Second, would all my software listed above work with 10.4?

I imagine I would need to make up an external drive that completely mirrored my current setup, in case it went wrong and I had to go back to what I have.

My need is to have a computer I can use to look for jobs effectively. Monster.com won't even let me log in with this browser. I consider buying some used machine with a current browser to use for my job search, but hate to waste the money.

Do the experienced and knowledgeable here have some advice for me? Is there a safe way to make some changes on this machine and retain my current array of software?

As soon as I get a job I will spend the money [I currently have saved] to buy a new Intel Mac. I just don't want to let that money go while I am unemployed. I have been for three months and have not gotten so much as a single interview.

OS X :: Mac Osx Restoring The Operating System

Feb 14, 2009

I upgraded my mac, to the latest version of the OS. Half way through the update, the power went, and my whole system, is messed up.

I thought, its ok, ill re install it from the disk, ill only lose software that i have installed, all my data is backed up, its fine. After 1 hour of installing mac OSX.5 the loaded, fine... but a few problems.

The software that came on the mac, is not there now.
My mac keeps restarting my Airport.

My question, if i use the disks that came with my mac, can i have the software back on OSX.4 and then upgrade it like when OSX.5 came out? Would i have hte software back?

OS X :: Wipe Everything Off Mac Except Operating System

Mar 30, 2010

what I would like to is to wipe everything off my mac (second hand) so that I can start again with everything clean and fresh. I've done this sort of thing before with other Macs by simply reinstalling the the start up disk - but this is where the problem lies - the disk that came with the Mac is only for OS 10.4.10 (Tiger) and the Mac is currently running OS 10.5.6 (Leopard) and I don't really want to downgrade (the weird thing is the Mac came with Leopard from the factory so I don't know whey it wasn't supplied with the disk). So is there any way I can delete everything else off the Mac (files, programs - AND MOST IMPORTANTLY change the "home file" name) with out loosing Leopard?

Windows On Mac :: Which Operating System Is Best

Apr 13, 2010

I bought my MBP about a month ago, and I bought VMWare Fusion to go with it. I need to run Windows to run Office, AutoCAD, and ChemCAD (I'm a chemical engineering student).

Is Fusion the best way to go, or should I get Parallels? (I haven't opened the Fusion software yet.)

Should I spend the money on Windows 7, or would Windows XP be fine?

Does anyone knows somewhere cheap to get Windows? And does it matter if it says it's for a PC? I know UltimateSteal currently has Office, but as far as I can tell they don't have Windows right now.

I got my MBP because my Gateway (big mistake, I know) crashed. It had the latest Office on it...is there a way I can use that instead of having to buy it again? (I don't want to use the Vista off it for obvious reasons.

OS X :: How To Reduce Hardrive To Operating System?

Mar 18, 2009

I recently purchased a secondhand macbook pro with os x 10.5.
The only problem is that it's filled with the previous users junk
(about 70% of which is porn, lmao). I would like to do sort of
a wholesale delete and reduce the HD down to just the OS.

This wouldn't be a problem if I had the actual DVD, but unfortunatley
the one he gave me is damaged beyond repair. I don't have the money
to buy a new copy and I can't bring myself to pirate mp3's let alone an
operating system.

In short, is there a way to restore the OS to factory condition without
the use of the OEM dvd.

PowerPC :: IMac G4/Operating System

Apr 2, 2009

I have an old iMac G4 sitting in a box, to be honest it's probably not worth anything, I've seen them online So I'm looking to maybe give it away to somebody that just wants the internet and iTunes, etc.

I want to do a fresh installation of the operating system, so it's nice and clean for the next owner, but I don't have the disks for it, anymore!

1 - At the moment, it has OS X 10.3.9 on it, can I put Leopard 10.5.4 on it?

2 - If not what OS can I put on it, and how do I clean it up without the disks?
