OS X Mavericks :: About This Mac - Disc Usage Wrong

Aug 25, 2014

In short I have a 480GB SSD by OWC. The audio alone, according to "About This Mac", is over 581.14GB... Something is obviously not adding correctly. 

I must admit, I had a couple of iPods that I downloaded music from to a VMware running Mac OS 10.9.4. The host OS is something that I can't mention...

I used the Hudini for Mac on the 10.9.4 WMware OS to unhide the music. 

Since I noticed this disc usage inaccuracy. I've deleted most of the music. Because at one point it was showing over 1TB for the audio.

I've also did a command R at start up and ran Disc Permission and Repair.

I also turned off Time Machine, reboot, turned TM back on, reboot. (Someone else had the opposite disc usage and this worked.) 

My next thought is to delete the Mac OS 10.9.4 via VMware, as this was where I originally downloaded the music from an iPod. I went through the music and transferred over to the host OS the selection that I wanted to keep. When I Get Info on the music app via Mac OS X ssd ▸ Users ▸ KOT ▸ Music ▸ iTunes ▸ iTunes Media it comes up with a little over 17GB.

MacBook Pro :: Ram Usage Is Showing Wrong Number?

May 30, 2012

MacBook Pro 10.6.8 [url]I need someone to explain this to me...RAM usage of all open programs together amounts to approx 1.5 GB..so there should be over 2.0 GB left...why is there only 203 MB left? I'm getting so sick of this.. my computer is incredibly slow.. it's amazing how no matter what you do computers always become slow eventually, no matter what you do.. (mine is about 1 1/2 yrs old) I thought with a mac this might be different, but no dice...4 GB really should be enough, certainly for the programs I have open that show in the screenshot..(I have plenty of free room in HD, by the way, so that's not the problem)

OS X Yosemite :: Disc Utility Uses Wrong Language

Dec 5, 2014

I just bought Macbook from someone who spoke Spanish, and they had the language set to Spanish.  

I changed the language to English under the "language and region," setting in system preferences, and Mac Os seems to be all in English.  

However, when I restart the computer and enter disc utility, the language is still in Spanish, and I can't figure out how to change it. 

In the upper right hand corner there is a US flag that says, "Estadounidense", but I don't know if it this is a country or language setting.  How I can change Disc Utility to English?

OS X Mavericks :: How To Check Internet Download Usage

Aug 22, 2014

In the last week, I have been using daily ±5GB of data.  Usually I used ± 500MB.  When I use Netflix, I understand that my usage can increased dramtically, but when I don't, how can I explain my usage ?  My ISP tells me that he cannot give me any clue, because my usage is confidential. 

What can I do about that ?  Can I install a software to check this and to be sure that nobody else is using my internet connection ?

OS X Mavericks :: Date Modified Displayed Wrong?

Sep 12, 2014

Several files in my hard drive displayed dates from 1984.

Whenever I tried to open it, it says "Item <> is being used by OSX and cannot be opend."

It worked fine if I dragged it to the dock icon and open it.

I think it is due to I did not safely remove my hard drive once.

The 'date modified' info was fine when I tried it on window 7 though.

OS X Mavericks :: 10.9.4 - Mail Shows Wrong Message Body

Aug 20, 2014

OS X 10.9.4 / 3.2GHz Quad-Core / 16GB DDR3
Mail 7.3 (1878.6)
IMAP Server at InMotion Hosting 

I continue to see messages in my mail folders that have the header information (From / Subject / Date) from one message in the message listings, and the From / Subject / Date of a DIFFERENT message in the message preview. 

This is NOT Google.  The IMAP server is from InMotion Hosting.  On the server, the messages are accurate: the From / Subject / Date information is attached to the message body it represents.  It is only in Mail that the information gets scrambled. 

I have used the Rebuild for this mailbox, which usually corrects the problem.  On occasion, I have to delete the mail account from Mail and add it back in again to force an accurate rebuild.

OS X Mavericks :: Wrong Dates Shown In Apple Mail

Jun 6, 2014

Day X: Mail 1 arrives in my Apple Mail Inbox, Shows the date as Day X.

Day Y: Mai 2 arrives in my Apple Mail Inbox. Shows the date as Day Y.

Day Z: The date shown for May 1 is Day Z. The date for Mail 2 shows as Day Z. 

This does not always happen, but seemingly is happening more and more. 

I have tried quitting and restarting the program. Rebooting Mavericks (Late 2008 MacBook Air). I upgraded to Mavericks when it first came out and didn't see this problem right away. 

I have also quit Mail, changed the time zone in System Preferences, Quit and reopened System Preferences. and changed it back to the correct time zone.

OS X Mavericks :: Cannot Play CD Or DVD On Disc Drive?

Jul 1, 2014

It is Macbook pro 13-inch with 4GB 1333MHz DDR3, OS X 10.9.4 (13E28), bought in late 2011. Today I have some DVD and CD of my coursebook and want to play it on my Macbook pro, but I could not even insert it into the drive first. Then I go to System Preference and click on CD&DVD Player. It was inserted, and it spinned and rejected. I wonder what happened? Is it OS update issue? Or Hardware issue?  

PS: It was once dropped from a learning table in my class. I am curious if that is the reason I cannot play CD or DVD

OS X Mavericks :: Still Install Apps From Applications Disc

Aug 31, 2014

A few weeks ago, I was installing a new SSD into a 2009 MBP. I reinstalled Snow Leopard from the disc that came with the computer and proceeded to upgrade to Mavericks. you cannot install the iLife applications (namely, iPhoto) from the Applications disc once you upgrade past Snow Leopard. Is there a way I can still install these applications without having to buy them through the app store?

OS X Mavericks :: 10.9.4 - Sims Medieval Disc Is Blank

Sep 2, 2014

OS: Mavericks 10.9.4 

I have Sims Medieval on DVD disc. Yesterday, when I inserted it into my Mac, it said the disc was blank. I have played the game on my Mac before, though I do not think I have tried to play it since I upgraded to Mavericks in March this year. I last had Snow Leopard, and it worked fine. 

I did put the disc into a Windows machine today and it recognised that it was a Sims game (dual OS disc) and showed me the files. 

I have never run into this type of problem before, and I don't own any other software on disc that runs on only Mac or both Mac and Windows so I can see if it is just this program. 

I have found one thread on a website where people have had the same problem, but no one has a solution and they're all moaning about EA not fixing it, when the game came out in 2011 and so I think the problem is with Mavericks, not EA.

OS X Mavericks :: Create Boot Disc For IMac Using Windows

Sep 4, 2014

I have an iMac from 2008. It got stuck in an infinite boot loop, so I took it to the local Apple Store. After they ran some diagnostics, it was determined that it was either a bad Logic Board, or Hard Drive. Because of the age of the computer, he said he was unable to work on it. Said it was "legacy" or "vintage"or something. So he gave me a little direction on how to open it up, and how to get to the hard drive (I'm fairly comfortable working on hardware replacements). Using a borrowed hard drive, I was able to boot to a Windows XP install (this was an old hard drive out of a Windows PC), which tells me that the original hard drive is shot. 

So I am going to purchase a new Hard Drive this weekend, but I am unsure how to install Mavericks. This is the only Mac I have access to, so I cannot use another Mac to create a bootable USB drive or CD/DVD. Mavericks doesn't come with a disc, so I cannot use that. Snow Leopard is the newest OS disc that I have, so I could use that, but was hoping to just do a clean Mavericks install instead. 

I have a Time Machine backup from less than 2 weeks ago. Is it possible to use that backup to install the OS on a new, clean, hard drive? 

Is there a way on a Windows computer, to make a boot USB drive that I can use on my iMac? Or am I better off using the Snow Leopard disc, and then use the App Store to update the OS?

OS X Mavericks :: Using External HD As Disc Image For Time Machine?

Jun 3, 2014

I've been using an external HD as my disc image for Time Machine. Recently, both of my USB ports failed due to a juggling accident with cables connected to the ports. I'd like to send my computer for repair, but'd feel safer if I could backup before that. 

Through file sharing and an ethernet cable I'm connecting to my old mac and can see the my HD for Time Machine, but how do I configure Time Machine to use that disc?
