Software :: Moving Files Between A Windows Computer And A Mac

Oct 28, 2008

I am having trouble moving files between a windows computer and a mac. When I save a file on the USB from the [URL]. there is no problem, and when I extract it to my mac there is no problem. BUT when I delete the files from the USB stick, it looks like everything is okay (window of usb is clear, and therefore there should not be anything on it right?) But if I go to the settings for the USB to see if the entiry capacity of the USB is available again, then I find out that this is NOT so.

So basically my problem is that my USB tells me it is occupied, when in fact it is not, could it be something with the cooperation between pc and mac perhaps?

What do you think the reason for this is? and how could I fix it?

The problem is that I now have 3 different USB-sticks which are useless.

Windows On Mac :: Moving Windows 7 From Fusion To Boot Camp Without Losing Files And Software?

Oct 24, 2009

Last night I installed VMWare Fusion and Windows 7 on my Unibody MBP running SL. When I use Fusion, my computer slows to a crawl. I spent a few hours getting Windows set up and installing software last night.

I would like to try using Boot Camp instead, but do not want to lose all of the software and files that I have installed. Is it possible to set up Boot Camp, and keep the same Windows setup?

Windows On Mac :: Moving Files From OS X To XP?

Apr 16, 2009

I used to have XP installed on another intel mac with bootcamp. This computer was running 10.4 and I was able to open up the Windows partition from the icon on the desktop. From there I could drag in new items, take some out, whatever I wanted to do.

Now, however, on my new 10.5 computer, it seems every single folder is locked and protected in the windows partition I access from OS X.

I am getting a new computer and would like to move mail and its settings, folders, etc. without moving all of my programs and users settings.

What If Device Or Computer Doesn't Meet ICloud System Requirements For Moving From MobileMe

Accessing the URL is not possible- browser redirects me to Find My iPhone. When I attempt to enter my legacy MobileMe address in the iCloud System Preference panel, I am prevented because it is taken despite the fact it is assigned to me. Infinite Loop of frustration: being constantly redirected by support documents to a page that does not exist.My email address is verified in my Apple ID settings page.

OS X :: Moving Files From Os 8 To 10.4.11?

Apr 16, 2010

My grand father is the king of all pack rats as he still keeps all his taxes and personal files on a powermac 600/66.

He wants to move the files off that computer and onto one of his newer macs so that the older powermac can finally be laid to rest.

The power Mac has a floppy drive which I am hopping I can use in tandem with a USB floppy drive for one of his newer macs so that no data is lost.

It seems like a viable plan I just want to know what issues I might run into as he is convinced the only way to transfer the documents will be via printer to scanner.

OS X :: Moving .app Files Around After Installation?

Sep 23, 2010

I like to keep my Applications directory tidy, so I have my software in several sub directories. I haven't had any problem moving the .app files around until I installed Virtual Box. It installs under Applications without asking anything, and if I just plain move the .app file somewhere else, the program doesn't run.

So, coming from Linux, my first instinct when a sw doesn't work from it's GUI launchers is to try run it from command line to see any potential error messages, and sure enough:

Code: sakus@MBP13 /Applications/Utilities/ $ ./VirtualBox

VirtualBox: supR3HardenedVerifyDir: Failed to open "/Applications/": No such file or directory (2)

So my question is - as I'm still not too familiar with these .app bundles - based on that error message, which file should I look for to try and edit the hard coded directory paths ?

Mac Pro :: Moving Publisher Files To Mac?

Jan 4, 2011

For several years I have published a newsletter for the local Lions Club using Publisher. I currently have a partitioned hard drive with my Publisher and newsletter files on the Windows side of my MacBook Pro. I constantly run into frustrating problems trying to move photos, save files and print across platforms.

Is there a Mac program that would read my Publisher files so that I could work with my same template on the Mac side? Will Mac Office 2011 recognize Publisher files produced on the Windows side?

MacBook :: Moving Over Old Files?

Feb 1, 2009

I am thinking of buying a new MacBook (Pro). I currently back up using Time Machine and wondered when restoring when I first turn on the Mac, do I have to restore EVERYTHING or can I select what I want? Such as music and photos.

Also, does the 7200RPM hard drive in the pro create lots of noise and heat compared to the 5400RPM version? If I bought a 7200 RPM model and put it in a MacBook (Apple don't let you do this yet) would it be safe? Which models do Apple use?

Is the Pro big when carrying to school? Portability basically?

Some of you might have seen my previous posts, but judging by what I will use the laptop for, do you recommend 2.4, 4GB MacBook or the stock 2.5 Pro with upgraded hard drive?...

1. I use light bits of Photoshop CS3 Extended for school that work well on my original 2.0 Core Duo MacBook.

2. Light video editing, such as iMovie, maybe Final Cut.

3. Most importantly, music creation. I'm only a beginner on all of this, and the laptop should last me about 3 years at the least. Everybody I have spoken to about the missing FireWire on the MacBook - including people at apple - has advised me that the gap between USB and FireWire is pretty half and half. As a beginner, recording voice, guitar, keyboard, maybe drums... will the lack of FireWire be too much of a problem?

OS X :: Moving My MS HTFS Files?

Apr 21, 2009

Well I did it! I bought us a MBP and very much looking forward to more of an enjoyable way of life. We should be getting our system in a few days. In the interim, I have been converting all music to AAC format and copying them onto a HTFS formatted external drive. I read on MacRumors that OSX cannot write to the MS formatted disk. I only want to read (copy) the files onto my internal disk and reformat the USB disk to OSX supported format.

Is this possible or do I need to format the USB disk to FAT32 and do the whole thing again?

OS X :: Moving Files Onto A Brand New Mac From A PC?

Aug 18, 2009

I had a PC laptop that was going out on me, so I backed all of my important documents (mainly my entire music library 30gb in mp3 format) onto my Western Digital external HD. It was formatted for PC.

I plan on buying a MBP today or tomorrow and I am afraid that I'll have to format my external HD to a MAC and in the process erase everything being stored on it right now.

OS X :: Moving Files In Terminal?

Apr 12, 2010

I am just learning Terminal and so far it has been fun but frustrating. I'm learning from online manuals and the manual within Terminal so everything is pretty verbose for someone that doesn't know the language yet. I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere, but the search gave me many results about moving files to the Trash or making a folder hidden. These are not my concerns for today. And for the reference, I know this can be done as a "drag-and-drop" operation in Finder, but as I said, I'm learning

So I am trying to move a couple of PDFs from my Documents folder to one I created within the Documents folder.

Jun 21, 2010

I have my Macbook Pro and i have a lot of large 4gb+ files that i need to get onto my PC, i have a 16gb USB stick and want to just transfer them across a few at a time to my PC (running Win7) But either my PC wont recognise the format, or when it does i cant copy files to my usb stick because of a file size limit of 4gb.

So in short, how can i get files from my mac to my pc, is there a program i can download for my PC to read Mac formated drives or something like that?
