I've downloaded a Linux Distro known as a Live DVD in ISO format. I want to burn this to a DVD for future use but would like to change what is in the ISO before burning. There are several files that I would like included so I won't have to have a second CD/DVD later.
DiskImageMounter does a great job of opening the ISO but it is readonly. If I copy the files to a directory, make my changes and then burn the DVD, the disk isn't bootable. And I am at a loss about how to continue. Can I burn individual files to a DVD and specify that the DVD will be bootable? Is there a software tool that will take the individual files and folders, and make a new ISO file that would be bootable?
I guess you can see where I am going. When I google for it, I find results for creating a backup of the Leopard install DVD.
I imported my photo collection into iPhoto. I wanted to know if there was a way I could make changes i.e. enhance function on the photos and then do a "save as" to another individual file as opposed to saving it in the main, big iphoto file. I couldn't find a way to do that through iPhoto.
I have the all three seasons of the Mighty Boosh and would really like to rip the files onto my computer so i can watch them on the run. I was just wondering if there was a program to do this that isnt to hard to use (me=noob).
I keep my iTunes Media folder on my external drive, but I found that recently iTunes has put several of the albums I've ripped on my local drive (/Users/<me>/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music, I assume that's the default location). Not sure why, though I know there was a time when my drive was inaccessible for some reason, so perhaps I ripped them then. Anyway, point is I want to move them to the external drive where the rest of my music lives. I tried just "moving" them in Finder, and I say "moving" because Finder doesn't really let me move but rather copies to the external drive. Which I think is part of the problem, since I then moved the local versions to the trash bin, from which they still played on iTunes. I guess iTunes (or MacOS in general) tracks where files move. Once I emptied the trash, though, iTunes claims it can't find them. Even though shiny new copies are right there in my iTunes media folder on the external drive.
Has anyone heard of some third party software used to help simplify the process of restoring or retrieving individual files via TIME MACHINE?
I have some trouble sorting out the navigation window, when it offers choices between KEEP BOTH or RESTORE ORIGINAL. I seem to end up not finding the earlier file.Then a friend said he had heard of software that simplifies this process. I've tried Forum search but no luck yet.
I have a Time Capsule at home, and can opt for the automatic backup via Time Machine program. But I have been doing manual backups, transferring files myself to Time Capsule and to an USB drive. It's mostly document, media files. If I backup using Time Machine, can I access those files individually? Or is it just going to be one big chunk of a file? Are there any trustworthy syncing programs between my computer and an external hard drive or in my case Time Capsule?
So two months ago my mac's internal hard disk had a problem, it was "ejecting" itself by itself. It was frozen. Problem: I was gonna do a backup the day it happened, so I didn't have a back up. I went to a centre of data recuperation. They managed to get a lot out of the internal hard disk and put it in a new external hard drive. Apple then replaced my SSD, and I restored (from the external hard drive) what had been recuperated back on my computer with a new SSD. Now I realise that a lot of things are missing - especially pictures- which is quite annoying. I do have a very old back up that I did with Time Machine on another external hard drive. My question is: how can I restore only the pictures from that back up? I can't go back on time machine because this is a new SSD, and I don't wanna restore everything from that back up as I have more data on my computer as it is now.
I recently upgraded to OS 10.7 and now can't find my Time Capsule under devices to access individual files stored on it. The system is recognizing it under time machine and is doing full backups to it, but only the backup portion is accessible through Finder. How do I get back to where I can pull up the contents of the Time Capsule on an individual basis?
I currently have the 3 Panther install .dmg files on my PC hard drive.
I want to burn them on to disk using Nero on my PC so I can boot up my PowerG4 and erase/partition my hard drive and replace my current useless OS X.1.5
I have tried changing the name to ISO and burning which works BUT when i insert the disk into my mac, the install file has changed from and application to a package which will not open or but from restart!
I have a new macbook with the latest OS, I'm burning my itunes music folder to a disc. I notice that the folder burned to the disc is slightly larger (in bytes) than the original folder in itunes. It's still the same 4.18GB size, but if you notice the bytes on the burned dvd compared to that on the original itunes folder, the dvd bytes are higher. I even tried burning a second one, after restarting the computer, and the bytes match the original dvd I burned. Why the discrepancy between the original folder size in bytes on my computer and then one I burned onto a disc?
I'm new to Mac and not sure how to do this. I have a several large (1.5GB each) iso files that are named like this: "filename.iso.0aa", "filename.iso.0ab", "filename.iso.0ac", etc. Is there any way to join these and burn them to DVDs? I've tried S&C but it doesn't work.
I have a bunch of media files (videos) that I want to store onto a CD-RW so I'm not wasting any unnecessary HD space on my Mac. However, when I attempted to do so it created a seemingly permanent file directly on my desktop with those videos that I cannot delete without compromising my ability to ever view those files again. In so doing, I seem to be unintentionally duplicating media files and decreasing the space on my HD as a result. How might I save video files to a simple CD without having to have a copy on my system to be able to view them? The file in question has the "burn" icon on its cover. You see, just to test myself, I tried to delete it in my trash can, and it wouldn't allow me ti view those videos and movies without first re-instating that duplicate file. The filre originated as a CD until the burning phase was completed.
I have access to many microsoft software packages from my school and some classes require me to have certain software and some is PC only. So obviously i need windows on my mac. So they have Windows 7 Professional.
I recently burned a couple of .avi and .mpg video files to a dual-layer DVD+R as a data disc (DVD-ROM) using the program "Burn" which is, in essence, a nicer front-end to Mac OS X's burning capabilities.
However, after burning, the video files on the disc are now unplayable. It seems like they are corrupt.
Am I doing something wrong? Do dual-layer discs need special settings to make it work as data discs?
I've been using mac for several years but have never had to burn movies to a disc before. I know that on a PC it is quite simple to burn multiple downloaded movies onto the one disk but I cannot work out how to do it on a mac, as the disk space fills up. I've downloaded "Burn" and "Visualhub" but neither seem to be able to do it.
I am clearing out my old IMac 10.4 & trying to make sure I am not losing precious memories but I cant seem to find certain home movies without hitting a problem. Some files end in .MOD or .MOI & comes up as file could not be opened & says its "not a movie file". I cannot see the same titles elsewhere but maybe in different formats which would play, I did notice the first time I uploaded them from my old JVC hard disc camcorder, that a named clip would appear it 2/3 different formats but since that was my first time dealing with movie files, I didn't understand it. Now I cannot see where the other different formats are. I have searched but they are all that will come up. There is even one or two which are .DV but again says could not be opened but this time also says "the end of the file was reached".
