WTF is going on...!@#$%^&*().

OS X :: Cannot Copy And Paste In Word Press

Sep 29, 2010

I am switching from blogger to Word Press and am frustrated in Word Press because I can not copy and paste. I can't do it with my command c and v or my mouse. I can highlight with the mouse but then can't paste it anywhere.

Occasionally I can copy a full paragraph and then try and paste it and only the first sentence will paste not the entire thing.

My designer is also on a mac and is not having any problems in my wordpress.

MacBook Pro :: Plan On Copying Stock 250GB Toshiba Drive 1:1 With Carbon Copy Cloner?

Nov 20, 2010

WD 6.3cm (2.5) 500GB SATA WD5000BEVT 5400 8mb [WD5000BEVT]

I believe that is the one without WD's free fall sensor (or whatever it is called)?

I can get a very good deal on it (41€). I plan on copying my stock 250GB Toshiba drive 1:1 to it with Carbon Copy Cloner.

Would this drive be good?

OS X :: How To Copy JPG Files To DVD

Mac Mini :: Restart Message - Hold Power Button / Press Restart Button

Apr 29, 2009

I have just shipped my Mac Mini to its new home and I've had reports that the panic error is appearing on boot up: "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the Restart Button." This screen appears on the blue window just after the grey apple screen has disappeared and does not get as far as the desktop at the same point each time. We have tried to reinstall mac OS from the original install disk but holding the "C" Key or the "Option" Key down on restart doesn't boot from disc. Is there a way you can view the Kernel Panic log before you boot into Mac OS so we can try and pin point the source of this problem. I'm wondering if this could have been the result of the shipping that has caused some hardware to come loose.

OS X :: How To Move Files Rather Than Copy Them

Aug 31, 2007

I was wondering if there's a way to move files instead of copy them via dragging with the mouse, or even a keyboard shortcut? I mostly run into this problem when I'm trying to move stuff to and from the Firewire External Drive I have connected to my Mac. It's kind of frustrating since I have to delete all the original ones, since I simply don't need them anymore.

OS X :: Automatically Copy Certain Files?

Nov 25, 2008

I want to copy certain files (to an external hard drive, but that doesn't matter) to another folder. But i want it to do it automatically with one click (or two, but you get the point). I want it to only copy files that are also in the destination folder from the source folder to the destination folder. (sorry that doesn't make much sense). But my goal is to back up my music into a folder, but not all of, only the folders that are already there. So basically, replacing old with new, but adding no new folders at all.

OS X :: Unable To Copy Files From USB?

May 29, 2009

I recently bought a new macbook 13" (first time ever using mac so i dont know much yet) and have been trying to copy some of my files from my pc to my macbook using my USB flash drive, however everytime i try to copy a file from the usb to my macbook i got the message: "The operation cannot be completed because you do not sufficient privileges for some of the items."

After clicking ok to this message the copying status bar doesnt move and the estimated time remaining displays nothing even after waiting for ~1hour.

I tried going to Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility to repair disk permissions but the option is greyed out on my flash drive.

I have also tried reinstalling osx but this seemed to just be a big waste of time.

OS X :: Copy Settings And Files From One Mac To Another

Dec 29, 2009

Is there a way to transfer all settings and applications from my iMac to my Mini? It took some three working days to setup my iMac. What I want is obviously to have the exact setup on both my iMac and my Mini without having to configure both computers separately. I guess Migration Assistant isn't really meant for this task, or is it? Would a disk image of the iMac's system partition do the trick, despite different hardware setups? Both computers are running Snow Leopard.

OS8/System 7 :: Copy Files Between OS X 10.7.3 And OS 9.1?

Mar 13, 2012

Ive "NetPresenz 4.1" installed on Power Macintosh 8100/80AV Mac OS 9.1 to connect to MacBook Pro Mac OS X 10.7.3using Firefox plugin FireFTP -to share everything vice versa. (This is the only way that I know to transfer files between these to Systems! I'm right)

When FTP files (Docs & Apps) from OS X 10.7.3 to OS 9.1 in both modes Binary & ASCII, the OS 9.1 receive them as a generic file and cannot be recognized! Some of the applications, like installers, do not have extension. But when burring them on CD through OS X 10.7.3, and insert the CD into OS 9.1 it does recognize them.

OS X :: How To Copy / Move Files With Only One Window

Jan 5, 2009

NOTE: I am doing this with Tiger. I have read complaints about how Windows Explorer is better than OS X Finder. One popular complaint is that it is impossible to copy/move a file from one folder to another folder outside the current one without two windows as Finder doesn't have a split window setup like Explorer. This simply isn't true. Mac OS X simply handles this differently than Windows. Heres how...

1. Open a window and go to the folder that you want to copy/move files to.
2. Drag that folder to your sidebar (+T)
3. Navigate to the folder that contains what you want to copy/move.
4. Drag your file(s) to the folder you just put in your sidebar to move them or hold 'option' and drag to copy them.
5. If you don't want the folder you copied to permanently in your sidebar just drag it out.

If your needs are more robust and you want to copy/move between many folders you can drag as many folders to your sidebar as you can fit. Plus your folders will be just as you left them when you go back to them (with the exception of the view). The sidebar doesn't have to be permanent and is your friend .

OS X :: Looking For A Program That Will Copy Files Automatically?

Oct 8, 2009

I am looking for a program that will copy a selection of files from my office computer to a server every day. I do not want to use backup, as i want the files to be directly accessible on the server. Snow Leopard killed my direct access to my office computer from the outside.

OS X :: Copy Folders Only But Only Duplicate Files?

Mar 9, 2010

For example, say I have a folder called Files1, and it has 10 further folders in there. And then I have another folder called Files1 too, which includes updates (new files in) just 3 of the folders.

Is it possible to just drag the new Files1 folder over the old one BUT it just copies over the 'duplicate' files and folders? And leave the others untouched? (bit like how it works when FTP'ing files to a server).

Default behaviour seems to completely overwrite the folder - which is not what I want.

OS X :: Installer Could Not Copy Necessary Support Files

Apr 14, 2010

Recently I have been trying to install Snow Leopard to no avail. First, I attempted to install it from the dual layer disc I have, and when that wasn't working I partitioned my external hard drive and created an installation image from which to boot. I keep receiving the error: "Installer could not copy the necessary support files". I have scoured the web trying to find the solution, and most people have pointed toward a hardware problem. I verified the HDD and I played with the RAM configuration. Remember reported that one of my 1gb modules was faulty, so I took that out and I still keep getting the same error.

MacBook Pro :: One Hour To Copy 4.7 GB Files From DVD

Jun 3, 2010

So I burned a bunch of DVDs back in 2007 on my old Windows Laptop. Now I need these files again and I started copying the files form the DVD to my MacBook Pro. Unfortunately it tells me it takes about an hour to copy the 4.7GB on to the Hard Disk. Is that normal? I checked several DVDs that I burned back in 2007 and they all say it takes at least an hour. I tried to stream a 700MB movie from the DVD... didn't work... too slow. I just turned on my old Windows laptop where I burned the DVDs from and there it works without a problem. Movies streams straight away and if I copy all the files it takes about 10-20 minutes. So what's the deal with the built in DVD drive of my MacBook Pro? I need to copy content of 10 DVDs onto my MacBook and I don't really feel like waiting 10 hours

OS X :: Copy ISO Files To External HD (Not Possible Due To Error)

Jul 7, 2010

I've created an ISO file which I need to back up and keep safe. I have a couple on my macbook pro but due to the large file size, it's taking up alot of space on my hard drive. I tried to drag and drop this onto my external hard drive but when I attempted to move them, it came back with an error message saying it wasn't possible to do due to an error. I can drag and drop every other type of file but for some reason this wont want to work?
Note: The file itself ranges from 4.9GB - 8GB and I have about 200GB space on my portable hard drive.

Software :: Cannot Copy Files Bigger Than 4 GB?

Jun 22, 2008

I'm trying to backup two .iso files (5.33GB and 5.05GB respectively) from my MacbookPro running Leopard 10.5.2 on to a Westgate external USB drive. When I try to do that it gives me "error code 0" and it fails to create a copy or transfer the file.

Is there a limit on how big files can I transfer through the mac? Is there a way to get around this?

I've tried split, but then how do I concatenate the split files together to get the original? I tried "cat" on .bz2 files and I can't get to replicate the correct original to (when I unzip it the unzipping process stops midway with an error).

I was able to concatenate 2 out of 3 parts of the 5.33GB files and the .iso opens up on diskmount but then when I try to concatenate the 3rd part it compains that the file is too big. So I'm stuck

"Concat" is not recognized by my Mac.

Software :: Copy Many Files From Mac Desktop

Dec 23, 2008

Inadvertantly dragged a CD full of images ontothe desktop of a G3 powerbook.

Desktop now has 1000's of jpgs on it, on loading this is slowing the system to a crawl and making the machine unusable (spinning colored disk all the time)

So how can I move these files from the desktop without having the machine boot up normally ?

On a PC I could boot to command mode and manually remove the desktop entries, is the same possible with Mac?
