OS X :: Wrong Date And Time - Unsecure Connection

Oct 30, 2009

Over the past 3-4 days I have been experiencing a few problems with my MacBook Pro. I purchased it back in May so I haven't had it too long and I have not started to have these problems until recently. Sometimes when I turn on my MacBook the date and time will be wrong. It will be set to Dec. 31 2000 and the time will be out of whack. Also, when I try to use my wireless router to connect to the internet it will give me this odd page and it will say my connection is unsecure and then it will have a big button that I can click that says get me out of here.

OS X :: Unable To Set Time And Date / Time Date Settings Wrong

Sep 30, 2008

So I shut down my computer earlier today for the first time in weeks. I restarted it and then left for a few hours for dinner.

I come home and I look at the last time MobileMe Sync and Time Machine did their things. They say they did them at 7:45. I look at the clock on my cable box and on my iPhone, both say 6:45.

Weird that the MacBook's time is wrong. I go into Time Date settings. I see that when the MacBook does the "Auto locate where you are so that we can set the appropriate time zone, etc. the MacBook things I'm in Rexford, Idaho.

I haven't been to Idaho in about 25 years, and my MacBook has been sitting in Southern Kalifornia for the last one year since I bought it.I've tried to have the MacBook auto-locate again, and it keeps finding me us in Rexford, idaho.

OS X :: Weird Date Settings / Showing Wrong Modification Date?

Feb 7, 2007

I've noticed recently that when in Finder, all folders/files have a Modified Date of somewhere in January 2009 or January 2008, regardless of when it was actually modified/created. My clock at the top left-hand corner says Oct 20 though. Any thoughts?

Software :: Time And Date Gets Corrupted / Unable To Set Date And Time

May 8, 2009

I'm running OSX 10.5.8 on a G4 iBook. Somehow my Time & Date files got corrupted which prevented me from getting on to the internet. When I discovered the problem, I threw them away, thinking a restart would create them again. I was wrong.

Now my computer doesn't know what time or year it is, causing various problems. I don't have back-up 10.5 disks to extract the time & date package.Can I download a replacement anywhere?

Or can someone email the files to me? I don't know what they're called but, if you search time and date, there are only two (and please tell me what folders they're in too)

OS X :: Unable To Load Date And Time / Time & Date Crashes

Sep 20, 2009

Starting yesterday, I cannot load Time & Date (either from System Prefs or from the menu bar). I get the beachball and I have to Force Quit System Prefs.

I tried Repairing Permissions and rebooting but it didn't help.I tried deleting .plist entries (as per a related thread on the Internet) and rebooting and that didn't work either.I tried logging off and logging in with another account and the problem is still there.I hope I can get some help because it's driving me nuts. I travel a lot and need to change my time zone. If you need a crash report from me, please tell me how to get it from Console bc I don't know where to look for it!

P.S. I am using old OSX 10.4.11

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.

Applications :: Importing .mov Files With Wrong Date To Imovie?

Jan 21, 2010

I wonder if someone could help me out on this. I've imported a lot of DV footage from my DV recorder to imovie and it has generally worked pretty well. Some of it came up with wrong dates, and I was able to follow instructions to get it to the right date.I recently purchased a Contour HD 1080P full on helmet camera for skiing/downhill biking. I got it just before my first ski trip and just took it out and recorded. It doesn't have many controls, and I didn't think that the date might not be set, and it wasn't, needs to be set by connecting it to the computer and setting it. So, it records 1080P in quicktime .mov files.. well .mov files anyway. When I import them to imovie, keeping full resolution, it takes ages. And the result is a directory full of .mov files again.

Applications :: Importing To IPhoto Makes Date Modified Wrong?

Oct 16, 2009

When I import photos from my camera into iPhoto, their date/time (when they were actually taken) is shown with you Get Info in iPhoto, but when I copy the images or view the actual files, the Date Modified is when they were imported, not taken. How can I copy the images with the date/time they were actually taken?

Hardware :: Wrong Date Shows On Files And Flash Drive?

Dec 26, 2009

I have 2 Ibooks: one has OSX and the other is on the highest version of the old OS9. Something odd happened the other day with a new USB flash drive I started using. I was transfering files (word docs) onto a flash drive. When I inserted the flash drive in the old iBook, each file (and document) showed the date Dec 9, even though the docs were from Dec. 16. When I inserted the flash drive in the newer iBook, it showed the correct dates for each doc. I tried this back and forth, and found the same thing. Yet, all the dates are correct on everything on my hard drive on the old iBook. It only is a problem with this new flash drive I'm using. It never happened before.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Messages In Sent Folder Showing Wrong Date

May 19, 2012

I have an odd Mail problem which I can't seem to solve. Yesterday I unchecked my "automatically set date and time" box in order to set the date back to May 7th for a particular printing task I needed to accomplish. I printed the pages but forgot to re-check this box so my system date was wrong for all of yesterday. I was hunting for a sent message later in the day when I realized what I had done.

I was going to report that my sent folder had stopped working, but, naturally, the messages were neatly filed exactly where they were supposed to be, sorted to May 7th, and not May 18th. Luckily I did not send a lot of messages yesterday! My question: Is there a way to manually change the date of a sent message? Is there a way to edit the header of a sent message? (Note to self: If you change the system date change it back)

Applications :: ITunes 10.1.1 Moving Files To Wrong Location And Then Losing Connection?

Dec 16, 2010

This morning I tried to play one of my albums and it told me it wasn't able to locate the files (on my external disk) so I located them manually and for some reason it has created a new iTunes folder in the root of my HDD (even though the iTunes prefs still pointed at the external disk) and moved the files in to that.

I deleted the album from the library and then imported the files from the new folder. It imported them fine and copied them to the exiting iTunes folder in the ext HDD but then immediately copied them back to the wrong iTunes folder. Then it told me it couldn't find them again!

I've now discovered 4 other albums that it's doing the same thing with and no matter what I do I can't get them to import, stay on the ext HDD and remain connected.

I've re-installed iTunes and restored my library file from before I upgraded to 10.1.1(4) but it's still doing the same thing.

Mac Pro :: Mac Pro Showing Wrong Time After Time Machine Restore?

May 24, 2009

i've got a niggling problem that i'd like to get sorted. I've searched the forums, but can't find anything that relates exactly to my problem.

I restored my pro from a time machine machine backup and now it displays the time incorrectly (-1hr). 'Set date & time automatically' is checked in system prefs which makes the problem even weirder. I'm using the Apple Europe sever too.

I've read somewhere about deleting a hidden file to solve the problem, but there isn't enough information to execute.

OS X :: Time And Date Changes At Startup / Time Zone Remains Fine

Mar 3, 2010

Okay, so I am running OSX and Vista on Bootcamp. I have noticed that when I use Windows or just even restart OSX that my date and time changes. Today it changed to March 1, 2000. I am curious as to why this happens. My time zone is fine. I think it has something to do with the Vista configuration.

OS X :: Date And Time Not Displaying Properly / Unable To Set Eastren Time

Jun 30, 2010

We got a refurbished Alu MB for an intern and the time is not displaying properly. If I check the "Set date & time automatically", the digital and analog clock is showing different times. See picture. Also, when I go in Time Zone, I set Eastern time, it will set it, but when I go back to preference, it sets back to GMT.

It's running 10.5.6 if that helps.

Hardware :: Switch Time Capsule To Wired Connection / Using Wifi Connection On Smartphone?

Feb 10, 2009

I have a Time Capsule wirelessly connected to my iMac. Since I've encountered some problems with backups because of intermittent wifi connection failures, I want to switch to a wired connection with an ethernet cable. I know I could fiddle with the wifi channels etc. but since the TC is just sitting next to my iMac anyway, I could profit from the higher bandwidth of a wired connection as well.Two questions:

1. What exactly do I have to do to make the switch? Are there any new settings I have to apply? Create a new network?

2. Will I still be able to use the wifi connection to get on the internet using my smartphone?

Hardware :: UPS Connection With Time Capsule - Can Operate With UPS Via USB Connection

Jan 4, 2010

I was wondering if Time Capsule can operate with UPS via USB connection (like QNAP or Synology or FreeNAS) ?
Is there some option for it in firmware ?

I have the USB cable to connect the UPS to computer / other, and UPS can work this way ( Smart APC 650 ).

If not, i was wondering if Apple could add this function. I have AP client, 3 hard disks and 3com gigabit switch connected to TC. It would be nice if TC could check the power status of UPS, and work with it.

OS X :: Time Machine Selecting Wrong Partition?

May 30, 2010

So I've partitioned my external 1TB hard drive by half. My intention is to use half for time machine and half for some "heavy" storage.

My external drive is connected via Airport Extreme.

What I am having trouble doing is telling Time Machine, which drive to select. I've already went through one super long initial back up, but once it tries to back up on the wrong partition, it wants to back itself up again!

How do I ensure that Time Machine backs up to the same partition?

When I'm in my Time Machine Preferences I can only select the "My Book" drive, not the individual partition.

ITunes :: Play Time Is Wrong On Audiobooks?

Jun 6, 2012

When I download audiobooks, they come in parts, i.e. CD1, CD2, etc. To make life easier, I join them back into ONE file so when I play it on my iPod, it's listed as one song rather than 100. Make sense so far? 

When I join them, the play back time is off. So if the whole audiobook is 12 hours, but chapter 1 is 45 minutes, the play time for the entire audiobook, that I joined, is 45 minutes. When I play it on the iPod, it will play PAST the 45 minute mark, but I cannot rewind or fastforward because the ticker just stays there. On iTunes, it will not play past the 45 minute mark. 

I've tried to manually change the time in iTunes but it doesnt change. Does anyone have experience with this/tips to help? I have a lot of audiobooks that are really affected by this.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Time Machine Restored Wrong Data

Mar 25, 2012

OK - the history here is the previous Macbook was replaced because of system problems, including many files with FUTURE dates (eg. 2037). Apple store agreed after repeated issues, they would replace the machine. We did a final time machine/capsule backup before taking it in. 

Got the new Macbook and ran the Migration assistant to restore all data from the time capsule. The data was not correct, and I suspect it was something to do with the future dates. 

I can open the sparse bundle backup file and see the correct backup information, but I have no option when I open Time Machine to pick ANY previous backups. This all started with Macbook problem, and I'm really thinking they should figure this out - but assuming they wont, how to safely get the 'real' information recovered from Time Capsule.   

PS - OS X Lion on both systems - Macbook Pro 15" i7, 750GB
