My relatively new iMac 27" accepts and reads the memory stick on my Canon EOS Sxi, and my Sony dsc-h55 Cybershot. However, my wife has an earlier model Sony Cybershot, with a SanDisk Memory Stick Pro Duo, and the iMac doesn't read it. I put it in, and nothing happens. With the other mem sticks, after I insert it into the SD Card slot, iPhoto starts, and reads the contents of the card. Should it read the SanDisk Stick?
I'm using an iMac OS X 10.2.8. When I plug in my Sony Cybershot (4.1 Mega Pixels) digital camera, the iMac will not read the ScanDisk Memory Stick Pro Duo (512 MB). If I remove the memory card it will read the internal memory of the camera. When I first bought the memory stick it worked just fine but now I get these two error messages.
"A disk attempting to mount as Unkown has failed verification or has failed to mount. use Disk Utilities to check the disk and correct any errors"
I'm trying to move pics from iPhoto to a SanDisk Memory Card. I've dragged them from iPhoto to the "open" card, and they're listed as such, but when the card is placed in my camera, or a digital frame, it says "no images".
My company started to use encryption software on our computers in work. They use PeeCee, I have an iMac 3.2GHz Intel. I bought a 16GB Tough N Tiny Verbatim Memory Stick.The encryption software used was TrueCrypt as you can use it both on Mac and PeeCee. The problem is I can see my memory stick on a PeeCee but not on my Mac. The IT is indifferent to my issue. He reformatted the stick a number of times. Says it comes up on the Mac in his workshop, however, it doesn't come up on every Mac computer in work. And more importantly it doesn't come up on my Mac.
I have reformatted to FAT32, reformatted to Mac, given it to the IT guyS!!, updated all software on all computers, I've used terminal to locate it, I've used Disk Utility to locate it. is it my Mac's fault (other memory sticks come up), is it my sticks fault (it did work once, and works on all PeeCee and some Macs), should I burn it and buy a new one (theres nothing of any importance on it?
Info: iMac 3.2 GHz Intel Core i3, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
I noticed that my 320g macintosh HD is saying I have 298GB capacity, but I have 84GB available on the description on my desktop. If I select get info however in informs me I have 13GB available. I ran disk utility and it comes up that my HD appears to be o.k. Do I have a HD issue? Is there a way to fix this so it will read properly?
Sometimes hear things of Macs supporting more memory than listed, so I was curious about my Powerbook. 12-inch Powerbook G4 1.5 GHZ. I have the specified limit of 1.25 GB. Has anyone here ever tried a 2 GB stick in it? Doesn't work?
My old laptop had a combo SD/XC/MS card slot. I have a Sony digital camera, which uses a Memory Stick Duo card. Are there any MS-Duo to SD adapters out there so I don't have to hook up my camera every time I want to get my card out?
I've partitioned my 8GB USB memory stick using Disk Utility in Snow Leopard and gave it the format of MS-DOS(FAT). It completes successfully, and works within Snow Leopard however when I plug it into Windows, it says its unformatted and needs formatting. It only gives me the option to format 200MB!!! What is going on? I know formatting more than 2GB in FAT is impossible or something but I did it with my external HDD and it works perfectly in Windows.
I just recently purchase a 2006 Mac Pro 1,1. It came with 1GB (512 x 2 sticks)of memory, I purchase 8GB (4GB x 2 sticks) of ram for it. I checked to make sure I have a total of 9Gb of ram. However, recently I found out sometime my Mac Pro only recognized a total of 5 GB of ram, when this happen, in Hardware Profile it always appear that I have 2 sticks of 512MB ram and 2 sticks of 2GB ram, instead of 4GB. Restarting sometimes solve the problem, but sometime it still won't help.
Did I do anything wrong? (I put a pair on tray A and the other pair on tray B, I also tried to switch them, which seems to reduce the times this happen, but still not completely avoid it). Or is there something wrong with the ram? (But this should not be true because after reboot most of the time it will correctly shows 9GB of ram in total). All the stick is always recognized, just the those 4GB sticks are sometime recognized as 2GB.
I have an iMac G3 500 and I bought a 4GB memory stick for it, but when I plug it in it doesn't appear. Is it an incompatibility with the hardware? Is it usb 1.1 in general? Its running os 10.4 so it could be the os as well, but I don't think so. I know its not the memory stick because I tested it on another computer. And yes I tried the keyboard ports and the ones on the machine itself.
I have a Dual 1.8 G5 with the 8 slot memory configuration. I have 4 1gig memory sticks and 4 512mb memory sticks and I cant get the 512's to be recognized. I have fallowed the instructions on placement order but the 512's which were fine before are now not being seen.
I am just wondering if it would be possible to run a game off of a USB memory stick. The game is approximately 600mb and very old (fallout 2 for mac), and I have very little computer knowledge. I'm used to PCs, but even then I'm no whiz. I absolutely cant install the game to my hard drive, as my flat-mate, who owns the computer is very touchy about me installing things or using memory.
I have a 8gb memory stick and want to transfer my 5gb zip file to it but I get error code 0. I read this is because my zip file is too big in FAT format and that if I change it to ntsf or something I'll be able to transfer it.
1. How do I change it into ntsf format 2. What should I download to write into the ntsf format memory stick on my mac.
I have a Macbook running Mac OS X 10.6.2. I eject my memory stick by highlighting it in the finder the selecting File - Eject. The memory stick icon then disappears from the Finder but the light on the stick is still on. As I selected eject I remove the stick anyway. The next time I insert the stick I am told that I did not eject it properly.
I am literally less then a week into being a mac user, so forgive me if I come across as a little ignorant. I'm using Leopard and a 500gb Imac [I don't know if this makes much of a difference? I was using a 4gb Kingston usb stick to move files from my old pc to the new Imac and made the mistake of not ejecting properly since then every time I insert I get "the disk you inserted was not readable by this computer". I've googled and googled trying to find some way to fix it and so far nothing.
It does appear in disk utilities as "generic flash 2.0 media" and i have tried to reformat it, I erased as MS - DOS and then even tried to partition I've tried Master boot record & guid partition table both under MS -DOS [I really need to be able to use on windows as well as mac] underneath it continually says Unformatted beside partition map scheme. I've also tried to reformat using windows in the hope it might bring it back to life, again nothing - so I'm beginning to wonder have I just got a dud memory stick? I have a Kingston 1gb stick and when its inserted it appears as "Kingston" under disk utilities.
If I delete a file from a memory stick- it does not free space. This is because the item has been moved to the trash and it hasn't been permanently deleted. If I want to free the space I need to empty my trash. If I don't want to empty my trash how can I delete a file from a memory stick to free space (permanently delete just 1 file)? Also (sort of linked) - how do I just delete 1 file from trash (empty just 1 file)? The reason I like to keep trash for a while just incase I need to restore a file, if I know I will not need to restore it, then I want to permanently delete just that file.
I just bought an 8 gig memory stick - that was advertised as being PC & Mac compatible. I put it in and it loaded fine. But when I tried to copy a file to it - it told me that the file name was too long. The name wasn't that long so I renamed it '1.jpg' - but got the same response. I tried other files and go the same. So I launched 'Disk Utility' and reformatted it using the 'Mac OS Extended (journaled) option. This worked fine. But this time when I tries to copy any files, it told me that the operation could not be completed because I did not have sufficient privileges to do this.
