Intel Mac :: USB Not Recognized By Snow Leopard?

Jun 7, 2012

I formatted my 8GB USB stick on my Mac Snow Leopard and initially decided to try a '35-Pass Erase' but, after seeing that it would take approximately ten hours to complete this I cancelled it.  I was then presented with:  'The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer'. Now when I insert my USB stick the computer does not recognise it apart from in 'Disk Utility' and I am unable to successfully format or partition the drive. I have also attempted to insert the USB in another USB slot on my computer to see if this would make any difference but I was presented with the same problem.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Printers Not Recognized After Installing It?

Jun 5, 2012

We have a MAC Pro Tower with 2 older printers connected to it via ethernet (through our AT&T 2-Wire DSL/Router). We have a Xerox Phaser 6300N & an old Apple LaserWriter 12/640 PS.We have been running Leopard for quite a while with this setup & no problems. When we finally were able to upgrade to Snow Leopard which I installed on Thursday, 5/31/12.Now, our printers are not recognized at all. I've reinstalled & redownloaded the Xerox drivers about 5 different times,tried unplugging the printer from the router & plugging it into the back of the computer directly.  Our speakers also did not work either, which was just a quick fix in the sound setup in Systems Preferences.   

I finally called Apple Tech Support -- they had me reset the PRAM, then I was booted up to a Senior Tech guy that upon learning that the printers were connected via ethernet that "Apple could not help me as they are only trained & able to troubleshoot USB connections". 

Now, I know that I am not the only one out there that has older printers connected to their MAC, and since the trouble started as soon as I installed Snow Leopard, there must be a solution -- perhaps a setting that was reset to the default when we upgraded or if Snow Leopard is not compatible with ethernet will a ethernet/USB converter do the job? I have even found an article about how to create a driver for the LaserWriter to work with SnowLeopard ... but the printer has to be recognized first.

MacBook Pro :: CD / DVD Not Recognized Running Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Dec 4, 2014

Computer info: MacBook Pro 15.4/2.8/2X2GB/500/SD; 2009, running Snow Leopard 10.6.8, MATSHITA DVD-R   UJ-868

I have used CD's and DVD's before on this computer with this OS, without any problems

Now:all CD's show up as untitled, show as having no content, and are listed with burn symbolCommercial DVD worksDVD's made by professional videographers (school event) are ejected

All of the above are readily read and DVD's played, title and content, by my old PowerBook G4, running 10.3.9 

I seldom use CD's or DVD's, so do not know how long this problem has existed, or what may have precipitated the problem.

MacBook Pro :: Das Keyboard Not Recognized Running Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Apr 23, 2012

I've just got the Das Keyboard Ultimate Model S for my 2009 MacBook Pro, running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I'm using the USB port to connect the keyboard, and the first time I plugged it in, the computer asked me to hit the first key to the right side of the left Shift key, which is pretty standard whenever a new keyboard is plugged into the Mac. It recognized it as a European ISO standard, which it is.

However since then my Mac no longer recognizes it as that kind of keyboard. When I go into the "Show Keyboard Viewer", the keyboard is recognized as a US Standard layout, and an Apple keyboard as well (meaning it doesn't "see" the numpad). You can see it's a US standard keyboard, as the Enter key is horizontal, and the left Shift key is wider.(the rest of the layout is Danish, which shouldn't matter in this case).

How do I tell my Mac that this isn't the correct keyboard? I've resetted the SMC, PRAM and NVRAM. I've tried to find and delete the file "com.apple.keyboardtype.plist" in my Library -> Preferences folder, but for some reason I don't have that file. I've plugged the keyboard into my iMac, running the same OS, and here the keyboard is recognized correctly, so it's not the keyboard that's faulty.

I have an Epson NX 510 printer that I have been able to print on easily up until a few weeks ago. I have upgraded my Macbook Pro to OS X Lion so I got new printer software and still my computer wouldn't recognize the printer all the time. Sometimes I can print and sometimes I can't. What can I do?

MacBook Pro :: Will Snow Leopard 32 Bit Recognize 8gb Ram

Aug 24, 2010

I'm thinking of upgrading to 8gb ram for my Mid 2009 Macbook Pro 15" since I run a few virtual machines for work but was wondering if I can keep running at the 32 bit level or if I need to run Snow Leopard in 64 bit mode?

Hardware :: Wireless Apple Keyboard Not Being Recognized Correctly In Snow Leopard?

Nov 7, 2009

So I've concluded that the reason my wireless keyboard is not registering the correct keystrokes on my Macbook Pro is due to the fact that Snow Leopard sees it as the OLD white wireless keyboard instead of the new aluminum one. Is there any way to ensure that it sees the keyboard as the aluminum one rather than the white one every time I hook it up?

My main concern is that the function keys don't do the correct thing. I've tried remapping them (but can't control the volume ones) and have tried using the checkbox that requires a push of the fn key. Trouble is, since the white wireless keyboards don't have an fn key, it won't recognize it as such on my aluminum.

how to make the computer see the keyboard correctly?

OS X :: Will Snow Leopard Recognize Mirror Configurations?

May 31, 2009

I'm currently setting up two 1TB hard drives as mirrored RAID drives.

Seems easy enough to do through Disk Utility, though zeroing out the data takes about 1.5 days for each drive, due to their size I assume.

Will it be easy to migrate these drives to Snow Leopard?

Will it just be a matter of adding them to the RAID list in SL's Disk Utility? Will it recognize them automatically?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: IPhoto Suddenly Won't Recognize

Mar 2, 2012

OS 10.6.8; iPhoto 9.2.1; Office for Mac 2004; Excel 11.6.6.The following weird thngs suddenly happened:

1. Apps in Finders Utilities folder disappear as one goes back in time using TM's "Enter Time Machine" command. The earlier in time you go to, the fewer the apps one finds.

2. iPhoto suddenly won't recognize .JPG imports from my camera (something it's been doing for years) when the camera is hooked to the Mac via USB cable.It works OK if photos are loaded to a memory stick and then imported.

3. In Excel, the Links button is never highlighted regardless of the status of the links!You can't tell by looking whether you have active links or not!

There were more, but the technician at our local Mac Clinic fixed them.But the three above are still there.He said that he had never seen anything like it.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: First Time Machine Full Backup Over Ethernet Not Recognized Latter Over AirPort

Feb 5, 2012

I have a 3rd Party NAS (Iomega Home Media Network Cloud Edition 2TB) and MacBook with OSX 10.6.8. I did run a first TM full backup over Ethernet (around 240GB) because of the extremely slow transfer speed over WiFi via the AirPort. It went Ok (after several tries and reading here in the forum). Then, I disconnected my MacBook from the wired network, so futures frequently backs-up happen wirelessly, however, it seems that it did not recognize the first full back-up, asked for re-doing it again from scratch and erased my first full-backup-over-Ethernet.

I've seen that the MAC address is used as part of the sparse bundle file name; obviously, there will be a conflict here because Ethernet and AiPort do not have the same MAC address (of course !).I will run a brand new full first backup over Ethernet, but I'd like to know what do I have to do for getting it recognizable for futures backups over AirPort?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: External Drive Mounts But Not Recognized As Time-machine Backup

May 30, 2012

I have a MBP 13" 2009, and had a HDD fail yesterday. I have an external HDD for backups with timemachine (WD 1Tb), with daily backups.I bought a new internal hdd, plugged it in today, and when presented with the install options, I selected recover from backup. There, my drive appears (in yellow), but when pressing continue, I get a message: No system backups found.

I looked around on forums and people suggested that a normal installation should be done followed by migration assistant. When I try using migration assistant and select Time Machine backup, the next page just shows up empty with a rotating thing in the middle.

When I browse the Backups.backupdb folder, everything is there, including my last backup from Saturday. I see that I can recover my files, which obviously is the most important bit, but I would like to restore Applications, settings etc, as to not waste too much time.

OS X :: After Install Of Snow Leopard - Macbook Failed To Recognize HD

Sep 11, 2009

I was running 10.5.8 on both my white MacBook and Intel iMac 20," then I finally received the copy of Snow Leopard which I bought from Amazon. I decided to install it on my MacBook first to make sure the install would be successful before I upgraded my iMac, which has my important work stuff on it. The install was a success on the MacBook and after it was fully upgraded and updated, I simply opened "About This Mac" to verify the installation, opened Safari, browsed around for a minute, then proceeded to check out the new dock and airport menu features. After just a few minutes of playing around with it, I decided it was a legitimate installation, closed the MacBook, left it plugged into the power source, and walked to the other room to begin the upgrade onto my iMac. I left home for about an hour and once I had returned, the iMac installation was complete and it was running like a dream. After messing around on the iMac for a little while I decided to make sure the MacBook was still good to go. When I opened the Macbook up, all I saw was a blank screen. I assumed it was some sort of power-saver issue, because sometimes the screen doesn't like to come on right away when I open it up. My first instinct was to move my finger around on the trackpad and press some keyboard keys, which always wakes it up when this happens. Nothing seemed to be working, so at this point I pushed the power button and it proceeded to boot. As it began to boot I heard some sort of CLICKING from the HD, followed by a flashing folder with a question mark on the screen.

I assumed it was some sort of HD failure so I booted to the Snow Leopard install disk, ran Disk Utility and Startup disk, and my Mac COULD NOT FIND the HD - all it showed was the CD-ROM drive and Network Startup. I tried to reboot a few more times and almost gave up. It kept clicking at startup and I was thinking about the little magnetic arms in the HD. I thought they might be jammed in the HD for some reason. At this point, I didn't know what to do. So, as it was booting up again with the plain grey backdrop, as a last resort, pretending I was the Fonz or something, I physically whacked the area on my MacBook near the power button where the sound of the clicks was coming from. AS SOON as I did that, the clicking stopped and a few seconds later the APPLE ICON appeared... instead of that dreaded question mark folder icon! The MacBook started booting up back to it's upgraded self again! Finally I was back at the desktop, and with a sigh of relief, began typing this forum. Now, my question is WHAT THE @#$% HAPPENED?? And how on Earth did smacking it one actually fix it? Is this problem related to the recent installation of Snow Leopard or just my MacBook dying? (It is 2 years old) If anyone has any ideas as to what caused this, and how I can prevent this situation from happening in the future.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Itunes Unable To Recognize Ipod 4th Gen

Apr 8, 2012

I tried to put new music on my iPod. This has consistently been a problem because Itunes says that the ID that i'm getting my applications from is not the same as the one issued to the iTunes application on the computer I get my music from ( because the iTunes on this computer has no purchased music, only free promotional mixtapes, so it isn't linked to any iTunes account). This forces me to have to restore my iPod to factory quality every time I want to apply new music to my iPod. 

This time the problem is worse- I updated Itunes earlier to the newest version ( I hadn't updated my music or Ipod software in a very long time), and now Itunes is unable to recognize my Ipod. I get the error message, "iTunes was unable to load data class information from sync services" after iTunes tries to recognize the iPod for a sync for about 30 seconds. 

I read this article; [URL] which suggests that I update to the newest version of iTunes, then reset my sync history. The problem now? I can't even get the preferences tab to load. Whenever I try to load the preferences tab, iTunes freezes up and becomes unresponsive. This is extremely frustrating. I have to go through all this troubleshooting, errors, and updating just because my iTunes isn't registered because it has no purchased music? 


>iTunes won't respond to my 4th gen iPod

>I get apps from the app store off of my father's Apple ID that I'm posting from

>Causes me to have to restore my Ipod to factory settings everytime I want to get new music for my iPod because my iTunes application on my computer isn't registered to an Apple ID

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Followed Steps But Mail Does Not Recognize ICloud Password

May 16, 2012

I followed the steps outlined in [URL]to move my Snow Leopard's MobileMe mail account to an iCloud account in the Mail app (deleted the old MobileMe account from the sidebar and followed the steps to create a new one for [URL]. Before doing that, I had gone online and changed my very old AppleID's password so that it conformed to the new requirements.  I also set up the MobileMe in System Preferences to be using that new password.  It seems to be happy with the new setup/password.   

I can get my iCloud mail on my iPad and on my MBAir when I use Safari.  But the Mail app continues to loop, asking me to enter my password -- and then informing me that "The MobileMe IMAP server "imap.mail.me.com" rejected the password for user [URL]I compared my Mail settings for the new iCloud account to what's given in the instructions and cannot spot anything amiss.

OS X :: MBP Disc Drive Won't Recognize Snow Leopard Disc?

Aug 29, 2009

I have a 2007 Intel MBP, running Leopard. I purchased the family version of Snow Leopard. When I tried to install it, it just spins the disc for a minute, makes the noise like it's trying to read it and then spits it out. All other discs work fine with my MBP so I know it is not the disc drive itself. I have all software "up to date." My brother installed SL on both of his MBs, one newer than mine and one older, just fine (with the same disc). I haven't seen anything out there with this issue so I wanted to start a thread to see if anyone knows how to resolve this issue (beyond taking it back to Apple and exchanging).

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Firewire Port Previously Working Now Not Recognized?

Jul 4, 2012

I understand this particular issue has been discussed at length on this forum and in other places but none of the solutions have yielded any success for me and I see this is often the case for others.  So, I'm posting the question again in hopes that there is an Apple guru out there who has figured this one out.  (All relevant specs below.) 

Problem:  Firewire port was working fine for downloading video from a Panasonic PV-GS320 into iMovie 8.0 on an iMac 10.5.8.  Then, suddenly the firewire port was no longer recognized: FireWire Bus: Warning:Unable to list FireWire devices.  Maximum Speed: Up to 800 Mb/sec The problem cannot be with the camera or cable as I can swap them over to an iBook 10.4 and the camera and firewire download perfectly there. I have run AHT.  Test results show no hardware problems. I've tried all of these

MacBook Pro :: Intel Hard Drive Not Recognized When Installing Leopard

Jul 15, 2010

I have a Macbook pro 17" 2008 model, and I just bought a new 160gb Intel X-25m solid state hard drive. I installed it into the mac with no problem, but when I boot up with the OS boot disc 1, the drive doesn't show up in the "destination" screen. No drives are there. When I open Disk Utility the drive is there, and shown as read/write, but when I boot with option held down the drive isn't there either. I can't even do any repairs on the drive in the disk utility.

Hardware :: Pioneer External 116d Dvd Burner Not Recognized By Leopard

Nov 24, 2008

I have an external Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-116d burner hooked to my Duo iMac and since I updated the software with software update, Leopard only recognizes it as a Mass Storage Device. Says it's manufacturer is Prolific Technology Inc. So it doesn't recognize any DVD or CD that I put in it, blank or not. I've tried putting it on different USB ports and Firewire even with no success. I was about to reinstall my entire system just to get things back to where they were before, but those same updates solved a different problem I'd been having.

The built-in drive is unreliable after using a game disk that had too much art on it or something, making the drive make noises. Since then the internal just hasn't been the same, hence I purchased the Pioneer external from OWC.

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Disk Image .DMG Unable To Mount / Attach - Not Recognized?

Jul 3, 2012

After a fatal mac crash (PPC 10.5) i had no option but to reinstall the OS (10.5), i obviously didnt reformat the drive in the hope that i would be able to recover some if not all of my data. Using various tools i was happily able to recover most of my data successfully, including 3 AES encrypted Disk images of around 30GB in size each.

I didn't hold out much hope for actually recovering the data inside the dmgs, although after some fiddling i was able to recover 2 of them fully after receiving the no mountable file system error, i dont know how i done it but nonetheless i dont appear to have lost any data from those two dmgs whatsoever. Now the third dmg (also about 30GB in size) never gave me the no mountable file system error and instead returns the error: unable to mount: not recognized. Im pretty sure that my data is still there somewhere due to the sheer size of the recovered file, tied with the fact of the success of the recovery of the other 2 disk images. I have read every post i could find on this site and have trawled the web tirelessly looking for a solution to this, but have yet to find anything that even comes close - the closest i have found was a post on this forum where it would appear an apple engineer was able to recover most of the data using some sort of magic.

I am not in a position to pay for professional data recovery and besides i would love to see a solution to this problem appear somewhere on the web. I have tried the usual, rebuilding permissions, mounting on another machine (imac G5), resizing with disk util, repairing with disk warrior, converting to ISO - all which return the same error - not recognized! I have tried every terminal command i have found on the web, although decyphering some of the information is a little out of my remit and my knowledge of HEX is limited. I haven't yet tried Toast, basically because i dont have a copy, but it would be my guess that this would return a similar result. Incidentally when i recovered the original data, there were some small (what appeared to be dmgs) files around only maybe a few Kb each with part of the file names of the original files, i'm guessing these maybe the headers or something like that? although i didn't have to do anything with them to get the other 2 disk images working again.

OS X :: Leopard Upgrade To Snow Leopard ... The Same As The Full Version Of Snow Leopard?

Jun 13, 2009

... long time reader, first time poster!! So I'm doing it. I'm switching from PC to Mac. I've been waiting for a while now and the new MacBook Pro's have convinced me. I'm buying the 13 inch this week.

However I'm slightly worried about the upgrade to Snow Leopard in September.

My question is if I buy a new MacBook Pro this week and upgrade from the current version of Leopard to Snow Leopard will it be the EXACT same as the version of Snow Leopard that ships with new MacBooks after September?

Is the upgrade just the same as the full software version available post September? Does the upgrade it just detect if you have the previous software and installs as if it were the full? Or does it just "patch" things depending on what's different from previous versions?

I can wait till after Snow Leopard is released in September 09 if it is different to Leopard upgraded to Snow Leopard.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Photoshop CS And Acrobat 6.0 Stopped Working In Snow Leopard?
