OS X V10.4 :: Built-in FTP Not Showing All Files

Apr 25, 2012

I have my 15" flat panel connected to a Topfield 7160 PVR by an ethernet cable. The Topfield has a built-in FTP server. So, using the built-in FTP (read only) facility in OS X Tiger, I can show the Topfield files on the Finder.

Recently, however, the FTP facility has not been accessing all folders on the Topfield properly. Some folders are shown as empty when they are not. When I disconnect and reconnect, different folders are shown as empty.I have tested the Topfield FTP server with the Cyberduck client. Everything shows properly. So, there is an issue with the OSX Tiger FTP client and/or how it sends commands to the Topfield FTP server.

Info:iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 15 inch 800Mhz flat panel

OS X :: IMac Showing "Built-In Ethernet" As Inactive?

Mar 21, 2009

I have an Intel 24" iMac running 10.4.something (sorry I'm vague but I'm not at my office) The mac is part of a mini network of 3 iMacs, all working perfectly until yesterday when one of them wouldn't print to my network printer. I had a look at the network settings and it was showing "Built-In Ethernet" as inactive. All the other macs work fine. I tried switching the cables from other macs to establish if I had a cable problem. Still no success. I switched ports on the hub also. Same issues.

As all the others are still working fine, I guess the problem must be with the mac, nothing else. The crazy thing is, the mac nadn't even had a reboot when it stopped working. I just woke it from sleep in the morning and that was that.

OS X :: No Built In Defrag Tools For Large Files

Oct 29, 2008

I recently deleted my Bootcamp gaming partition so I could make it smaller. I then realized I need more space and so later on I deleted it again and tried to make it bigger. I got the infamous "files cannot be moved" error which is Apple's nice way of saying "sorry we don't build in good defrag tools for large files, just small ones". Suffice to say, I cant install Windows without either doing a bootdisk defrag of my system using a third party tool like iDefrager or doing a fresh fromat of the hard drive.

I think I would like to do a fresh format as its quicker and cleans out your system but my problem is thus: I dont know if I should back up my mp3s, pictures, aim convo logs, etc. to an external and just recopy them over with fresh installs of all my apps or if I should do a Time Machine restore (either the restore in the system disc or a restore after a fresh format and install of OS X). I have a Time Capsule so lag is a factor there. Which is the best option for me to pursue!?

OS X :: .AVI Files Not Showing Video But Only Audio?

Jul 29, 2009

I have a few .AVI files that I want to play on my Macbook. But when I play them with Quicktime, it shows me a black screen and plays with only audio. No video. And yes I have installed Perian but that's not fixing this problem either. I tried using VLC but that didn't even show me a black screen. I could only listen to the audio.

OS X :: Duplicate Directory Files Showing Up In Zip

Jul 30, 2009

I'm trying to release a WordPress theme on my site which I've developed on the Mac. When I sent it to my friend with a PC, he unzipped it and noticed it generated empty files based on the names of the subdirectories (see attached image). Also when you first open the .zip, there's an empty folder called __MACOSX. How to keep the whole package a little more clean?

Windows On Mac :: Won't View .rtf Files On OS X 10.6.2 / Showing Error

Feb 3, 2010

A company is sending statements as .rtf files. I cannot view them in TextEdit or Pages. I have opened them on PC's so I know that the files exist are are viewable on a PC. The error I get is:

"The document 'xxx.rtf' could not be opened. The file isn't in the correct format."

In smaller text below it:

"The file might be corrupted, truncated, or in an unexpected format."

I get the same message for both TextEdit and Pages.

(To clarify, 'xxx' is not porn. I replaced the actual file name with 'xxx' for this post.... just incase you were wondering)

OS X :: Unknown JPEG Files Showing Up - How To Stop

Apr 3, 2010

I am new around here, but have been using a mac for quite a while.

This morning, I decided to do some Spring cleaning on my Mac,and found a bunch of strange files, that were screenshots of webpages that I visited. I don't take screen shots, and these little things add up to a lot of space pretty quick. They all had long names too. I want to make sure they do not come back, so if anyone knows what I had, let me know how to stop them!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Some Files Not Showing Up On NTFS Drive

Mar 22, 2012

I have two NTFS external drives. I used to copy files through my bootcamp partition which is Windows 7. However, when I copy certain videos from my Mac partition. It shows up normally on windows side, when I get back to Mac OS, I cannot see them. Everything else are showing up fine, exactly for certain video files, with both NTFS drives missing the same files. When I connect both to another PC, both are showing up those files fine.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Strange System Files Showing Up Everywhere?

Mar 26, 2012

Roughly two weeks ago I started noticing all kinds of unfamiliar system files showing up in a number of my folders. They are always grayed out and as far as I know have nothing to do with the actual folder. These are just straight forward folders and/or my actual Mac hard drive. Any idea where they may be coming from? I don't know that any of them are actual system files that might be important. The second link, the CODES folder should be the only file in that folder. Here are links to a couple of them. [URL]..

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Hidden Files Showing Up In The Top Directory

May 12, 2012

I've just acquired a late-2005 G4 iBook with Leopard 10.5.8 installed. All seems to be well except for an oddity with the listing in the top, home directory. I would normally expect to just see folders for Applications, Library, System and Users but, for some reason, folders normally hidden such as bin, cores, etc (alias), private, sbin, tmp (alias), usr, var (alias) and Volumes are also shown. "dot" names remain invisible unless intentionally made visible.

OS X Mavericks :: Finder Search Not Showing All Files

Dec 11, 2014

I'm using Finder to search for files on a server connected to my computer at work. The search results I am getting do not include all the files that meet my search criteria. For example, I am looking through photo files for any files with "34" in the name. Some files show up, but not all of them. See screenshot. I am searching in the "Branded Photoshoot" folder, and I am getting some results (Branded Photoshoot/Hilton Universal/IMG_1434), but another file that is in folder, though a different subfolder, (Branded Photoshoot/Architectural Center/IMG_1534) is NOT showing up. What is causing that subfolder and its files to not be included in the search results?

OS X :: Image Files Showing Icons In Coverflow Instead Of Preview?

Jul 14, 2009

I don't know when this started happening, but all of a sudden in coverflow all the images display as their file type icon, not the preview of the image, which defeats the purpose of coverflow. Anyone know how this happened and how to switch it back?

Incidentally, all the icons show for Xee, the image browsing app, which I'm using only because Preview is being a jerk and constantly displaying itself in my secondary monitor, which I keep off most of the time (it's a wacom cintiq, and it's distracting to have turned on when not in use). If I can somehow fix this all by fixing preview and getting rid of Xee, I certainly would.

OS X :: External Hard Drive Stopped Showing Files

Sep 23, 2009

Recently I just converted my old PC's 250gb Hard drive into an external drive. In the beginning everything worked fine. Though I could only read the files from it on my mac, I was fine with that because there was so much old music and pictures that I wanted to get off of it. There happened to be one particular picture that I couldn't find searching through the HDD with my mac, so I thought maybe I would be able to find if I looked for it through a windows system.

So I then plugged the external into my Windows laptop. After failing to find the picture on the PC, I plugged the hard drive back into my mac, but for some reason it's not showing the files. The hard drive is being found, but when i click on them in the finder no files show! The drive is not erased because the capacity and amount free is still the same. And to put the icing on the cake when I plugged the drive back into my PC a message comes up that says "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error".

Applications :: Video Files Deleted - Not Showing Up In Trash?

Feb 15, 2010

My setup is a 27" C2D iMac, 4GB RAM, running SL, all latest updates. iTunes is latest version with the library hosted on an external Drobo connected via FW800. I have no iPods plugged in just now and have disabled automatic sync with my ATV so I know there shouldn't be any tasks running within iTunes itself.

This morning I get a message about a corrupt iTunes library. I restored the file from a backup and after a long time referencing the corresponding .xml file, iTunes loaded up. 95% of the library was fine, but for some reason, it had lost some files, leaving me with exclamation marks scattered around the place. If I manually locate the file, that solves the problem, so while its a pain, I can sort it out, or I guess the new equivalent of consolidate library should clear it up.

Anyway, for the last few hours, iTunes is very slow. Rest of the machine is fine and its not hogging resources according to activity monitor, but its clearly doing something which is making it appear to be un-responding. When I switch to it, it takes a while to appear, then the spinning beach ball, then maybe 30 seconds to a minute later, it becomes active for a short time before becoming unresponsive again.

OS X :: Freecom Network Drive Not Showing Or Displaying Files?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm running a macbook osx 10.5.8 and a windows 7 laptop. I have purchased the Freecom 500gb network drive and installed it on the pc. It took forever to tweak it to see and access the files (kept on getting an error) but I finally managed it. I created new folders on the Freecom hard drive (plugged into my router and accessed wirelessly from both of the computers) so i could see there was something on the drive when i try and connect on the mac. It found the drive on the network, and could open the 'public' folder - yet the folders i created (with full permissions granted) are not there. Also, when i create a new folder on the mac in that directory - it creates and disappears straight away.

Applications :: Unable To Play .wmv Files / Showing Only 3 Or 4 Kb Of Original File

Jan 20, 2009

Ive noticed that a couple of websites that have only .wmv available to download movies. I am running a Mac G4 with OS Tiger and Opera/Safari/Firefox for the net. I can easily play wmv's with my QTpro and or VLC.

The movies that I typically DL are usually 300 to 400 megs. They completely DL on my browser (Opera, Safari, or Firefox) after about 10 minutes or so. However once I DL the .wmv files onto my harddrive , they show up at only about 3 or 4 kb!!?? So thats about a total of like .2 seconds of play back!!?? Therefore one second of total playback.I believe this is not an Apple vs Windows issue, but something else. Any ideas?

OS X Mavericks :: External Drive Not Showing Up In Finder / Can't Access Files?

Jun 30, 2014

My blue 1TB external WD Passport Drive (whose name is Ralph and who holds all kinds of precious things that I love and can't lose) isn't showing up on my Finder screen. Whenever I connect him, his light turns up and blinks as usual, but I can't access anything on him. I don't even get an error message when I disconnect him without ejecting. I've tried using different USB ports and different cables, but it's not working. I've also tried connecting him to different computers (3 different macs and 1 Windows 8 PC), but NOTHING. 

I've been trying everything the past few days to get him to work. He shows up on Disk Utility occasionally. I've tried verifying and repairing him through Disk Utility, but it says that the verification could not be completed, or that it can't repair him. It tells me to back up as many files as I can and then restore him, but I can't access the files to back them up in the first place. Also, the partition name seems to have changed to 'disk1s3', which appears greyed out on the Disk Utility screen. 

In regards to mount point, it says that the disk isn't mounted. I tried mounting it by right-clicking it on Disk Utility, but the mount failed. I tried restoring him onto another 1TB WD drive (Oscar), but that failed too.
