Power Mac G5 :: Illustrator CS2 Crashed When Opened


Every time I load Illustrator CS2 it shuts down (crashes) on open. I read some other forum comments on the same subject and tried to check my disk drive and verify my fonts. That seemed to fix the problem for one session then when I tried to use it again this morning, it started all over again. I've been using Illustrator on my system for years with no problem. Then, all of a sudden. I am using a PowerMac G5 duel processor (the last generation of Motorola chips). Please of RAM and hardrive space.

Software :: CS2 Illustrator Stopped Working On G4
On one of the office computers (G4 Mirrored Door running OS X 10.3.9), the CS2 Illustrator has stopped working. It starts the load process, but then gives the error message "Missing Required Plugins: BRS Pencil Tool/ExpandS."

The Adobe suggestions for fixing the problem are:
1. Delete the CS2 Illustrator Settings file and the com.adobe.illustrator.plist file and restarting.
2. Restarting Illustrator under a different User account.

I have tried both of these with no success. This seems a common enough problem, yet scouring the web yielded only those two options (PC users were able to identify a corrupt/missing font that caused the problem on those machines).

Mac Safari :: Browser Opened But Crashed Immediately
I've been having trouble with the Safari browser recently. It just won't seem to open. The only time it's opened is when I've selected the new tab button. A window opens, but immediately crashes. I've restarted Safari, and restarted the computer, but nothing seems to work. I'm fine using Firefox, which is working fine, but just wanted to make sure that Safari not working wasn't significant of a bigger issue with the computer, which I've had alot of in the past.

Power Mac G5 :: Illustrator Files Not Open After Copying
I have a Power Mac G5. I had a problem with the machine, it was running too slow. So I copied all the data from the Hard Drive to an External Hard Drive. Formatted the machine and again copied the data from the External Hard Drive to the Hard Disk. Now, the Illustrator files won't open up. I was using Illustrator CS3 before formatting and same after format. The error I get is " The file 'test.ai' is in an unknown format and cannot be opened." Is there anything that can be done to open the files... Cause I nearly have 100GB of .ai file.

Power Mac G5 :: Downloaded The Missing Synch And Crashed
I downloaded the Missing Synch and then my G5 crashed. It would not boot up. I tried repairing and replacing the directory with Disk Warrior but this does not seem to help (after the entire process the system will not re-start). I have tried reloading Tiger and it seems to complete the installation but then the system will not re-start. I even erased the entire drive and this did not work. I also tried to install Leopard to no avail. Basically my system will not start. I get as far as the gray screen with the apple and then the system turns off. Any suggestions?

Power Mac G5 :: Finder Crashed When Search Criteria Entered
My PowerMac G5 with 10.5.8 Leopard has been having problems with searching, get info and it's icon. Now when I search in the finder All I get is 3 letters in and then It crashes just before the search could take place, this happened on the first time I had ever tried to add a new search criteria for an App I had made and then It crashed finder crashed then the Mac just shut down and would not come back to life for about 5 minutes. The second is Get Info, when I open the get info window on something it's fine then all of a sudden when I try to close it finder crashes this started when I got the other problem.

Now its Icon, on the reboot of My Mac when both problems occurred I noticed Finder was not open? So In Spotlight I did a search and got finder open but it kept on crashing. Also another problem is that when you open a file (Folder) shown by something like your dock it brings up one of these 2 Applications, Default Folder X or Apple Loops Utility. But the funny thing is that I have never installed Logic as I don't edit music at all! Default Folder X and Apple Loops Utility have now both been uninstalled and now Lightroom 2 opens instead and I'm not getting rid of that.

Power Mac G5 :: Optical Drive Opened With Tray Out
My G5 sits on the floor to my left, slightly behind me, and my optical drive was open, with the tray out. I didn't notice, and as I rolled my chair back, I hit the tray and popped out the right side, so now it won't properly slide back in as it should. Left side is still properly attached, though may also be screwed up from my messing around with it. Is there an easy way to rehinge the tray so it goes back in? I don't want to bust it, and I don't want to have to take it apart either.

Power Mac G5 :: Available Space On HD Reduces When Photoshop Opened
Having a weird memory problem with Photoshop CS4 on my G5 Quad. When I open up a file in Photoshop, I notice that the available space on my hard drive reduces (info at the bottom of any Finder window). Essentially, it's using the scratch disk. I would expect this with a very large file that exeeds the amount of ram in the machine. But it does it even with files of 5-10 Mb. It appears to me (just a guess) that Photoshop isn't using RAM when opening or manipulating a file. Though I have more than enough to open it. Even when I close the file, or "purge all" from PS's edit menu, my available disk space does not come back. Only when I quit out of Photoshop completely, will it come back. I've run Apples Disk Utility, and everything came out fine. Ran TechTool Deluxe, and no problems there either. Hoping maybe I'm just missing some piece of the puzzle first, before I uninstall/reinstall Photoshop.

System specs:
G5 Quad (2.5 GHz)
4 GB RAM
OSX 10.5.8
Photoshop CS4 (11.0.1)
Memory usage set to allow up to 70% (but doesn't seem to matter what I set it to)

Power Mac G5 :: SuperDrive Tray Not Fully Opened - Stuck In Middle
I just bought a used G5 1.6GHz, when I tried everything on the shop it was OK, the tray would fully open all the way, but after brought home and and turn on the G5, try to use the SuperDrive, it stuck in the middle, I guess it was the slide-down door not clear enough to let the tray open. When I transport it on my car, I just let it lie down on the back seat, was it the cause? What can I do now? Now the only way I can let the tray fully open is to use my fingers to assist push the slide-down door.

Power Mac G5 :: Hard Drive Crashed With Grey Apple Screen And Spinning Circle
My G5 desktop computer had Font error, and then it crashed. I pressed the power button to restart and it won't booth up! All I get it the Grey Apple Screen and Spinning Circle with loud fan noise. I've tried using the install CD to booth up to use the Disk Utility, but it won't let me select the primary Seagate drive (I do see the drive name), therefore I can't repair or do anything. When I tried to re-install the OSX, the system won't even see the primary drive to reinstall. Is this drive dead? (I never had clicking noise before) or is the Drive corrupted? How do I fix this problem?

Power Mac G5 :: Hard Drive Crashed - "Invalid B-tree Node Size"
I have a power mac G5 quad and my main hard drive failed. I have tried Disk Utility, Data Rescue and Drive Genius. Some of the errors that I am getting are:

Invalid B-tree node size
This volume could not be verified completely
Disk Utility cannot repair the disk

I removed the hard drive from the tower and tried to load it via the "Voyager" - a USB hard drive dock. The drive won't mount and I get the same errors. I have also tried to attach the Voyager to 2 other mac computers. I tried putting the hd in the freezer overnight. Sometimes the drive clicks but still no data recovery. Should I get Disk Warrior?

Hardware :: How To Print Panoramas Using An Epson Pro 4000 And CS2 On Mac OS ?
I've been at this all nite and I am fed up. Can someone please tell me how I can print a panoramic print on roll paper using CS2 on a MAC (so please now windows advice) using an epson pro 4000? I constantly get the message that the wrong paper source is selected. Roll paper is fed into the printer, I select A2 roll paper (any of the A2 roll paper options), or I try a custom paper size (42x120 cm) on page setup. For paper I select velvet fine art paper (I don't really know what kind of paper it is to be honest), because that will select the rear feed. Unless I am mistaken (quite possible) the rear feed is used by roll paper.This does not work. I tried setting to A2, but then I get only an A2 size part of my print, and still it won't print anyway with the same annoying message. I don't have these problems with my R1800. With the R1800 I just select roll paper and everything automatically prints perfect, but not the pro 4000, can someone please explain to me what settings I have to use in page setup of CS2 and what settings I have to use in the printer driver of the pro 4000 printer ?

OS X :: Mac Adobe Illustrator CS3 Cannot Be Installed?
Model Name:iMac / Processor Name:Intel Core 2 Duo / Memory:4 GB

When I installed Illustrator CS3 at the first time, I didn't complete it and closed it. While I installed it again, it said "Adobe Illustrator CS3 cannot be installed because it conflicts with Adobe Illustrator CS3". I was be stopped on this step, so I deleted the Illustrator CS3 from Applications/Utilities/Adobe Installers without clicking it to uninstall.

And I deleted other Illustrator CS3 files. After that, I tried to reinstall Illustrator CS3 again, but it kept to say "Adobe Illustrator CS3 cannot be installed because it conflicts with Adobe Illustrator CS3". I cannot find any Illustrator in my MAC. What is wrong? How can I install Illustrator again? Should I format the computer and install all the applications again?

Are you using the Mac or Windows version, (via Bootcamp/Fusion)? Which version is better to buy, Mac or Windows?

Mac Mini :: Running LOGIC Pro / Adobe Photoshop - Illustrator
I am poised to make the change from PC to Mac. However, I have a decision to make. I am currently running a 3ghz QUAD core, 8gb RAM with Windows Vista. The system runs well (yes, even though it is Windows) but I wish to move to Mac and ditch the Windows world. I plan to use Logic Pro so need a Mac. I have 2 x 24" monitors that set me back 700�. I was thinking to keep those and perhaps buy a Mini Mac. The mini Mac can support 2x displays.

My big question is this: If I went for the 2.66Ghz Intel Duo Core Mini Mac with 8gb RAM, would this tun Logic Pro without any problems? Would it also run software like Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator / Premiere without hanging or being very slow? Who has a mini Mac and currently has these softwares installed? Please advise? Should I simply sell everything and go for an iMac?

Software :: Which OS For CS2.3 On G4 APG
I have a 450MHz APG/Sawtooth single processor with 1.75 GB of memory (three 512MB cards are new.)

Two-month-old hard drive - Maxtor STM320080A
OS X on the 1st partition (98.18 GB)
OS 9 on the 2nd partition (29.92 GB.)

I have few peripherals at the moment; Sony monitor, Belkin USB hub, APC Backup RS 800. I'm running Panther 10.3.9. Shortly after the new drive was put in, Adobe CS 2.3 Premium was installed. The two programs I use most often, InDesign and Photoshop, ran great for about a month. Then I needed Acrobat and clicked on the Acrobat 8 app in the dock ... nothing. When I realized Acrobat 8 won't run on Panther, it was too late.
In the Read Me file on the Acrobat 8 disk, it said I would need 10.4.3 or higher.....................

OS X Tiger :: OSX 10.4.11 Update And Photoshop CS2
I used the automatic update and suddenly have problem with Photoshop CS2. I have an iMac G4 with 1.5 BG of ram and about 20 gig free HD space. All my apps are on the internal HD and I have 2 external drives with images and docs.Before the update I could have Lightroom 1, CS2, Safari, Mail, Firefox, TextEdit and sometimes more open and working. Now - even if only CS2 is open it complains about memory and no scratch disk, so I cannot do many functions like cropping. One of the images was only 8 meg.

I ran the permissions fix, and dumped the CS2 prefs and still cannot use it fully even with all other apps closed.

PowerPC :: Run Photoshop CS2 And CS3
I own a PowerBook G4 15-inch, been enjoying it for a long while now, having thoughts of upgrading it. Performance Question, Is the current Black MacBook (when the top of the range Intel processor is installed, and when maxxed out with RAM) faster in overall performance than my now aged PowerBook G4 15-inch? I saw a bloke take out his MacBook at a cafe recently and I was blown away by its compact size (weight is an issue and I'm prepared to compromise large screen size for smaller resolutions and less weight). Schlepping my Powerbook around in my large and well protected shoulder bag is quite literally giving me a pain in the neck. Software Question: Will I be able to run Photoshop CS2 and CS3 and Final Cut Express on the MacBook without wishing I'd upgraded to the 17-inch MacBook Pro - weight issues and compact form aside - instead ? currently I uninstalled CS1 from my Powerbook G4 800Mhz 2GB Ram because its performance sucked soo much, I ran back to Photoshop 7 and ImageReady 7.
