ITunes :: Naming Songs Automatically - Retrieving Proper Info From Web

Mar 28, 2012

I have 2500 songs I have accumulated over years. Many have improper names, some are not capitalized and some have no Genre or the wrong Genre. My question is, can I select all songs and have itunes somehow retrieve the proper info from the web? Or do I have to manually edit each song myself. Would the CDDB database come in here somehow?

Intel Mac :: Retrieving Photos From PC's Ext HD

May 14, 2012

I'm relatively new to the world of Apple.  I have an iMac running Mac OS X, version 10.6.8.  I stored photos from my PC onto a NexStar CX external HD.  A friend told me I should be able to access them from my iMac but when I plugged it in I get this message:   

"NTFS-3G:  Volume not cleanly unmounted 

The NTFS volume that you're trying to mount (/dev/rdisk1s1) has not been unmounted properly.  This may mean that the volume is in an inconsistent state, and mounting it with NTFS-3G could lead to data loss.  You are recommended to attach the drive to a Windows computer and unmount it properly with the "Safe remove hardware" feature to guarantee the safety of your NTFS volume. 

To ignore this warning and attempt to mount the volume anyway, press the "Force" button.  To abort the mount process, press "Abort." 

Although it's been quite a while, I'm very confident I didn't shut down the EHD improperly the last time I used it.  Also...  I no longer have a PC to hook it up to.  What does this message mean and what can I do to get to my photos?

Intel Mac :: Retrieving Files Via Windows 7?

Mar 29, 2012

Up until a few months ago, my primary desktop computer was an iMac running OSX Snow Leopard. I used Time Capsule for backing up to a 1TB external HD. Unexpectedly (of course), the iMac died beyond repair. I am now, unenthusiastically, using a Dell laptop running Windows 7 until such time as I can replace the iMac. My questions is this: is there a method I can use to access the backup HD to extract files I need from it? I have connected the HD to the laptop and it is “seen” by Windows, but it doesn’t allow me to open it to view files. I am not interested in interacting with the external drive beyond retrieving digital images and document files I desperately need.

Intel Mac :: QuickTime Pro Key: Retrieving A Lost Key?

Apr 20, 2012

I've lost my QuickTime Pro registration key(s). What should I do? You can retrieve purchased registration keys this way: Visit the Apple Online Store.Cick "Account" in the upper-right corner.Click "Downloadable Software Purchases".Enter your Apple ID and password.

You should see your QuickTime Pro registration key(s).The enlarge and bolded portion isn't even in Account selection.  If I type it in search, all that pop up are items I can purchase.  Viewing Purchase History has nothing, having Apple call center call me was useless.   Please advise on how else I can retrieve my key.  Since regular Apple Support is useless.

Intel Mac :: WD My Passport Won't Let Me Copy Data To It On It

May 24, 2012

I backup my photography on a WD My Passport. I have only used PC's with this in the past, I am now trying to back up some more files and it won't let me copy them to the drive. The permissions say that I have read only access on my Mac. I have read some threads, and they all say that I have format the hard drive to change the permissions and that I will not be able to copy over files bigger than 4G. I have RAW files that can get quite large so limiting the size is an option.

"My Passport" 1TB - will not read on the desktop after dropping it (accidentally slipped from hands and only 6 inches from the floor) the device shows its hooked up on the system profiler on my iMac, I need files on it I had not backed up yet. Can I retrieve files from a "My Passport" that sounds like its trying to connect and makes a high pitch grinding sound and beeps like a disc is not moving correctly?. I bought a new one and tried a new cord on it and still won't fire up. so eliminated the cord issue (the drive dropped off from the 3USB Cord connection in my hands) I am desperate to get the info off it...

OS X :: Transfer All Info From IMac To New HD On Macbook?

Jun 14, 2009

I want to install a new, larger HD in my macbook and then make it my primary computer. Currently, I have most of my info on my aging G5 iMac which is slowly starting to fall apart (i.e. optical drive/keyboard no longer work, making strange noises, etc.). I know that, once I put a new, larger HD in my macbook, I will have to format it and install Leopard. Is there a way to then transfer all of my info from the iMac to the new HD in the macbook after I put Leopard on it? I currently have a Time Machine'd backup external HD hooked up to my iMac.

IMac :: Won't Find Info For Apple Remote

Dec 4, 2009

my parents have an iMac (not sure of the exact model except its maybe 2 or 3 months old). Anyways, it's kind of in between the living room and the kitchen and is used often (among other things) to play music in those two areas using iTunes.

I was wondering if the Apple Remote Control would work well... the only catch being that the remote is IR and that the position of the computer means that a lot of times, the remote would be facing the side and backs of the computer. I doubt the remote would work but I also heard that the remote's IR is very robust.... is it strong enough to be able to used from these angles (im assuming by bouncing the signal off walls or something?).

IMac PPC :: Flush Hard Drive Of All Info But Keep The OS?

May 21, 2012

I've got a very old iMac PowerPC G4 that I've been wanting to get rid of for a while. It's got 384 MB of RAM and a 700Mhz Processor, along with what I believe is a 50Gb Hard Drive (I haven't found a way to check for sure). It's running Mac OS X 10.2.8. So here's my question. Is there a way to totally flush the hard drive (or reformat it) to get rid of any sensitive data, but then be able to install or keep the OS files and get it running again?

Intel Mac :: Can't Find Info Stored On Desktop

Jun 14, 2012

Had a storm with a power flux and mac went down. Started it back the next day. Ran a first aid on the hard drive system first (all icons on desk top worked fine, showed all software installed, all documents, etc.) Everything checked out.

I have an Iomega external hard drive attached to use as back up. When I ran the first aid on that the system froze. I turned the computer off, waited and then rebooted. Everything came on again, but this time, my screen saver was the original one, not the one I use, all the added icons from the desk top bar were missing, back to the original ones loaded at time of purchase, all my documents are missing, as in everything except for my pictures on the hard drive, all the info stored on my desk top, everything GONE. NO sign of where anything went. The system seems to work fine as far as that goes, but there is none of the materials from the past 5 years of use. Can't even find my emails from Apple, nothing. That's all gone as well. Called up Apple support but because the warranty is no longer in effect, will have to pay for service. Am ready to do that if this fails.
