MacBook Pro :: Order To Upgrade To Lion After Putting In A Brand New Hard Drive In It?

Apr 9, 2012

I  have a 2008 macbook pro with brand new 500GB hard drive and 6GB new RAM.    My old hard drive is backed up on external drive, via time machine. When the shop put in the new hard drive (there was nothing wrong with old one, it was just stuffed to the brim), they loaded snow leopard from a disk, but I haven't put anything from the old drive back on yet....I haven't even configured my mail and am just reading mail  from ipad and phone these days. 

Should I install Lion before I restore all the old backed-up stuff, or is it important to have anything, ( like maybe preferences)  already on the computer when I download Lion.  I want to be selective when restoring from time machine, because my old hard drive had a lot of ancient software and junk on it that had migrated from every computer we've ever owned, and that is many, many.So, I'm just stuck on the best way to proceed.  Also, should I install the latest update for 10.6.8 before I download Lion? I see today that some new updates have become available; java, security, safari, and apple software installer.

PowerPC :: Safe To Migrate All Data From Powerbook G4 12"?

Nov 26, 2008

Is it safe for me to migrate all the contents of my powerbook G4 12" to my brand new 13" aluminum macbook? I thought it would be too much trouble to load all my iPhoto pictures, iTunes music, registered programs, and firefox bookmarks. Any downside to doing this? I'm assuming since there are no viruses on OSX, that I will be fine transfering everything directly over to the new laptop are, correct? It's just too bad this is going to take 3 hours!!! All I want to do is play with the new macbook.

Can Use ICloud With A MacBook / Can't Upgrade To Lion

May 9, 2012

My husband and I rely heavily on our shared calendars through MobileMe and I've yet to switch to iCloud because of the complications I'm sensing it will cause us.I have an old MacBook that I've read can't be upgraded to Lion because it doesn't have the necessary hardware.I use iCal mostly in my MacBook and on my iPhone when I'm on the go. My husband just uses it on his iPhone.My question is - when I am forced to switch over to iCloud, will we lose our calendars that I can use on my MacBook?Will they only be available on our iPhones or online? Am I able to have all the functionality of our current calendars (with relative ease of use and syncing from a computer) without having to get a whole new computer/upgraded hardware?

OS X :: Upgrade OS In Order To Update IPhone?

Jan 6, 2011

I'm having difficulty downloading the newest software for my iPhone. Everytime I try to download the new software a dialogue box appears that says my iTunes is updated to the current version (9.2.1). First of all, why is that appearing at all? And second of all I know for a fact there are more recent versions of iTunes out there...I've seen it. So problem A: my iPhone software won't download so I can update it, I'm assuming I need to download the latest version of iTunes which brings me to Problem B. When searching for the latest update for iTunes, I can download it on my computer but it won't install because it's saying I need to update my OS to 10.5 or higher.

So...do I need to upgrade my OS in order to update my iPhone software and is there a way to go from 10.4.11 to 10.5 for free? If not why do I have to, in the end, pay to update my iPhone software now when I haven't done that since the beginning?

Btw my computer is a MacBook Pro 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo processor.

ICloud :: Migrate Address Book Server To It?

Apr 16, 2012

I was hoping to export an archive of Address Book which is running on my 10.6 server so that I could import it to iCloud's address book. 

How can I do this?  I can't see any functionality to import in iClouds's Address Book. 

Do I have to have all of these server contacts "On My Mac" before iCloud will play ball?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Have To Upgrade To Lion To Access ICloud?

Mar 20, 2012

I am reluctant to upgrade to Lion due to being quite happy with OS 10.6.8, but now am looking for extra backup and storage after 3 external hard drives dying. Question: can I access iCloud using 10.6.8. on my iMac? - don't have an ipad, as yet. Or an iPhone. What are the major changes between Lion and Snow Leopard, and how difficult would it be to get used to using it, as it sounds like it is catering for those with iPads and/or iPhones and the ways of interacting with those items.

Intel Mac :: Switching From MobileMe To ICloud But Can't Upgrade To Lion?

My iMac is too old to upgrade to Lion, so when I switch from MobileMe to iCloud, I understand that I will no longer be able to use my desktop mail app to retrieve mail, and my calendars and contacts will no longer be in sync with my iPad and iPhone.  So when I switch over to iCoud, is there any work-around for this so that I can continue to use the desktop mail app on my iMac or otherwise get mail on my desktop, and keep my mail, calendars and contacts synced between my iMac, iPad and iPhone?

ITunes :: Song Order In Alphabetical Rather Than Correct Album Order (only For Some Albums)?

Jun 23, 2012

I have a problem with SOME of my albums in itunes. Some of them ( aprox 20%) are displaying the sogns within an album in an alphabetical order. I do not have "track" in the column header selected. I have tried selecting "track #"but this does not rectify the track names into the original album order. I can not manually enter the track number either in the "track #" field to manually rectify this as iTunes does not allow you do this. It is really frustrating that I have to listen to some of my albums in alpabetical song name order rather than the order the artist wanted me to. See an attached example screenshot for Erykah Badu's Baduizm Album.

Applications :: Can ITunes Have A Play Order That's Different From It's Display Order?

Feb 13, 2010

There's something that's been bugging me for ages, literally years:

I've got a whole lot of music, 45 days worth, and I view it by date added and want to keep it that way for a number of reasons.

Problem is, when I want to play an album I have to click on the first track, then switch to album (or artist) display by the end of that track.

The other day I added an album by dragging it into iTunes in the Finder. I noticed that I could start and stop and advance and rewind tracks and it would go in order, from first to last track, even in Date Added mode, so it was visually moving up and down instead of from top to bottom.

Is there secretly a way to view in Date Added but have the next track be the next track on that album? Besides dragging the tracks into iTunes from the Finder I mean.

If anyone has a way to do this, it would seriously improve my life and I would be infinitely grateful.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Migrate From Clone Or TM?

Feb 10, 2012

I am doing a clean install of lion from the recovery HD, is it best to migrate the data back via TM back up, or clone? I don't have any programs that i don't a have disc for, and all i want to migrate is itunes, mail, and pic files etc. I have seen where migrating when you install is better than migrating later, so i want to be sure i have a clean clone, or back up, to migrate from. I also failed to write zero's over SL when i did a clean install for Lion, so it was not so clean. So i guess my question is just, clone, or TM back for migration?
