Mar 20, 2012

Every time I sign into my Macbook, I get an error message from Automator; "The data couldn't be read because it has been corrupted.". I have never created an Automator workflow. How do I find out what Automator is trying to run and stop it?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Retrieve Data Out Of A Corrupted Folder?

Apr 28, 2012

Some how through interacting through my iMac file system via PlayStation3 Media Server and my Macbook Pro, the permissions on my Movies folder were what I can only describe as totally nuked and I can no longer access my data.  There are no longer any permissions associated with my movies folder in my user's home directory.  Accordingly, I cannot access the large volume of movies (all law fully copied from hard copies which I own, of course) via local disk acess or over the network through my Playstation 3 or by mounting my user volume onto my Macbook Pro. I did change the owner via the terminal and the chown command but while the directory comes up when I look at the permissions using root access, when navigating through the finder I still cannot access the data in the folder. 

I would like to try to get my movies back.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: New Messages Show As Read As Soon As Touch The Inbox Or The Message

Apr 18, 2012

In old style view. Every time I touch a message, it turns to read even if I haven't double clicked to "open it". I presume this is because it is previewing but I don't want it to do this. Also, every time I click on "inbox" to look at my messages, the top message in the list automatically changes to read. Again, I haven't opened the email and in this case I haven't even touched it! Can I TURN OFF PREVIEW?  I've been looking around but can't seem to do this.

Software :: WMV Not Playing / Showing Message Movie Couldn't Be Opened

Aug 29, 2010

I have a few wmv vids on my mac. Up until recently they were all fine. When I went into the folder the all files showed the Qicktime logo on them and played using flip4mac. Now the files are just white with no logo on them and when I click to play one it brings up the message "This movie could not be opened, The file is not a movie file." I have tried reinstalling flip4mac and quicktime but I still have the same issue. Someone told me to try perian but still nothing. I am guessing this is a problem with the files but not sure how this happened or how to fix it.

Wondering if anyone else was having any weird issues with their iCloud and unread count in the Mail app on their mac running lion? I can't seem to get rid of a phantom unread message.

I am getting a pop up error message with a yellow triangle and yellow exclamation point in Safari but it immediately disappears after it appears.

OS X :: How To Recover Data From A Possible Corrupted Folder?

Jan 31, 2009

would need some help on this matter.

- It's on an external hdd, 1tb Western Digital MyBook hooked via firewire.
- It's a folder containing music (MP3 + FLAC).
- All the data in that folder is gone, 0 file, tried on my Macbook and Windows desktop and both came out with the same result.
- External HDD is NTFS, using Paragon NTFS on my Macbook.
- The data are still in the hdd, just that it doesn't show any data in the folder, because the space used is still there + the songs still play on my media player library list.

So main problem here is, how what do I need to do to view the data in that folder now.

Software :: Images And Other Data Getting Corrupted

Aug 9, 2009

I have an imac, running 10.4.11. Suddenly I'm having a problem viewing images I've loaded onto the computer. I get the following error - "Couldn't open the file. It may be corrupt or a file format that Preview doesn't recognize." It's very random though. Initially I may be able to view the file (typically a .jpeg), then later I can't, or some of it appears but it's corrupted.

I've tried this using pictures from several different digital cameras/memory cards, so I don't think it's a fault on that end. Also, I've had some problems merely opening up screenshots, and TextEdit files - though again, this seems random. Thinking there might be cache issues, I cleared the history folder, but that didn't help.

Hardware :: Data On RAID 1 Get Corrupted - Need To Reformat

Jun 24, 2009

Ever since I got this 2TB external (Maxtor Onetouch III RAID 1) I've had it running in it's default RAID 0 set up and it's been fine, however, recently Leopard's been finicky about loading it. (every so often it seems that the data has been corrupted and I have to reformat). I have the equivalent amount of space on other external discs so I haven't lost anything truly important. So that's the situation, here's what I have been thinking about.

I've been thinking of trying to set it up to be RAID 1 so that I can pinpoint whether one of the drives inside if failing or whether I should just try to call Seagate and see if the drive is still under warranty. Does anyone here know the best way to set up this drive to RAID 1? I know I can set up RAID arrays via Disk Utility, but I can't get DU to recognize each drive separately. (setting it to have 2 partitions of equal size doesn't work either, it comes back as RAID failed)

MacBook Pro :: Calendar App Is Corrupted - How To Reinstall Without Losing Data

OS X Technologies :: Automator Workflow Fails With Cryptic Error Message

Mar 14, 2012

I'm updating an Automator workflow for OS X Lion that I initally developed and used, without issue, in OS X Tiger. The workflow asks for a name, creates a folder for the name, takes a digital image with a Nikon D50 connected to the computer, and saves the image to the new folder. This aspect of the workflow works fine. 

I then have a prompt asking if we should take another. If the user says "yes," the script should take another image and save it to the folder. This is where I run into an issue. When I attempt to add another "Take a Picture Action" into the workflow, I get the cryptic (at least to me) error message in the attached screenshot.   

Here's the text: 

"Cannot update for observer <AMWorkflow 0x400458ac0> for the key path "parameters.name" from <TakePicture 0x403e3b0a0>, most likely because the value for the key "parameters" has changed without an appropriate KVO notification being sent. Check the KVO-compliance of the TakePicture class." 

The language of this error would seem to indicate a bug.

OS X :: Using Automator. - Compose A New Email Message And Paste In The Text Copied From The Web Page?

Feb 14, 2009

I want to be able to send an email message with a specific keyword in the subject and only a URL in the body.

Here's where Automator needs to come in:
When an email with the subject keyword is received, have Safari open the URL contained in the body of the message.
Copy all of the text from the opened URL.
Compose a new email message and paste in the text copied from the web page, and email it back to the original sender.
Close Safari.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Read Data In Older Microsoft Office Documents With Office 2011

Apr 21, 2012

I updated to Lion on my desktop a few months ago and I swear now I can't read older Microsoft word and Excel documents correctly on this computer using Office 2011. The document opens and you can see all of the data in a preview window (from finder) but once it opens fully the data/words are not there. I have Lion on a brand new Macbook Pro I just purchased and installed the Microsoft Office 2011 and it opened the excel document I was having trouble with fine.I can't find many links for Office for Mac issues.

Applications :: ITunes Corrupted, All Of OS Corrupted - Can Installing Clean Copy Of Os X Fix It

Sep 15, 2009

For the past few months, I've tried to restore my iPod Classic because it randomly restarts itself, not to mention moving on the following song during the middle of a song that is already playing. However, it seems iTunes won't restore it. The following message appears every time I try to do this:

The link takes me here:

[URL]

But that website simply doesn't help me out. I've taken my iMac to a Genius and he basically said that something is corrupted in OS X. I should mention the fact that programs such as Onyx and Maintenance claim that I am not the admin when in fact, my account is the only account on the computer. The funny thing was that I created a new account and restored the iPod through there, it would work just fine.

So, besides that long explanation of my problem, is there anyway I can fix this without having to resort to placing all my files on an external and installing a clean copy of OS X? Would archiving and installing back to Leopard do the trick?

OS X :: Entourage Error Message - Could Not Read RGE File

Apr 30, 2008

Within the last week, all of our computers have developed a 'bouncing E'! The entourage symbol jumps up and down and demands attention, there is a box saying 'Entourage could not read this .rge file', it never stops, it just comes back every half hour or so. I suspect it has something to do with sharing projects, but we have done nothing differently from normal so can't trace the reason. It's possibly linked to when one person sent an invite to all the others asking them to attend and event but I'm not sure.

It was also suggested it might be because there is a lot (ie up to 10 years in one case!) of email in the in box, but we have been doing some clearing out with no result. I don't know much about macs and am in the dark here, and everyone is blaming me as it was my idea to create a shared diary/contacts list in entourage. Some other forum said to find the corrupted file, but I've no idea where to look or even how to tell that it's corrupt.

OS X V10.7 :: Change Mail Preview In Lion From A Vertical Read To A Horizontal Read?

Apr 22, 2012

I just switched from Snow leopard to Lion and i don't like the way that Lion has the mail preview set up as a 3 column vertical format. I thought in Snow Leopard you could change the set-up so it's either horizontal or vertical, but I can't seem to find that option in Lion. I want to have the list of my email messages in the top, horizontal window and the preview of the selected message in a horizontal window below. Am I missing this option to change the view format from vertical to horizontal somewhere?
