Apple :: How Do I Convert Mp3 To Wav On A Mac

Is there a way to make an audio cd... i have mp3's and want to put them on a blank disc, but be able to play it in a cd player, not as mp3's.

Wasnt sure if mac came with a program already installed to do that. I have a macbook pro, a month old.

I got it a couple days ago and it definitely takes some getting used to. But that phase is over now and I love this keyboard. The build quality is amazing and typing feels just like my MBP keyboard.

Apple :: Using FAT 32 With Mac OS X
Conventional wisdom holds that one of FAT 32's classical limitations is a 4 Gigabyte files size limit. I've done a few searches on the net, and I find this rule repeated ad-infinitem, without contradiction.

I recently purchased a 320 GB Iomega Prestige external drive that I plan to use interchangeably with my Mac and PC systems. To do this, I re-formatted the disk to a single 320 GB partition with FAT 32 file system (The drive comes formatted NTFS).

Yeah, I know there are work-arounds that would permit me to format it NTFS, and use it read-write on my Mac, and there are probably a few solutions that would permit me to format it Mac OS Extended, and use it my PC. I prefer not to use any "workarounds".

Here's my question.... I had occasion to copy a few files to the drive from my MacBook to the drive, namely my Virtual Machine files, that I don't want to use Time Machine for. I had no problem doing so. The two files exceed 4 Gigabytes handily, with one of them being over 30 Gigabytes! Oops, this can't be done, right?

I ask, how is this possible? I thought I had a 4 Gigabyte limit with FAT 32. Does the fact that I formatted the drive with my Mac give me some sort of advantage that Microsoft's formatting using the same file system does not?

I have read that the reason the FAT 32 files sytem can't store files over 4 Gigabytes, is the insufficient lack of storage within the allocation table for the requisite number of pointers required for a file over 4 Gig in size.

Apple :: FPS With The MB Vs MBP
I am going to buy a mac in the near future and am currently conducted the research stage of my purchase.

I have been to a shop to see the MB and the MBP in real and am very very impressed with them.

I am going to be using my new computer for some medium gaming and i'm wondering which will give me more "bang for my buck"

So, what FPS can i expect on the following games: Unreal Tournament 3, WoW, COD:WaW, battlefield Series and L4D. On med- high settings using the Macbook and the Macbook Pro

And also which would you recommend? Any macbook user that wishes they upgraded to Macbook Pro?

Apple :: MBP 15 Vs 17
I know that I have stated earlier that I wasn't considering the MBP 17 because the lack of portability, and that I already got a 24" Full HD screen.

But the thing is; I might be able to get the MBP 17 for the same price as the highend MBP 15, because of all the hassle etc that occurred.

I feel like, I don't really need the extra screen estate, I already think the 15" is barely portable, but the 17" got a great battery etc.

When it comes to what I'm going to use the computer for; mainly light stuff the coming time, but after that I'm going to start using final cut pro a lot and I know the 15" screen isn't enough for the ui of the program and the 17 is enough.

Apple :: MBP - 8 GB Of Ram
I would really like to upgrade my MBP to 8 GB of Ram as I use lots of VMWares in my job. I read that you can do 6 GB but I also saw some people trying 8GB of RAM on even older MBPs.

I read this with interest:


I'm sure you have also seen the article about the MBP only doing 6GB and not 8GB.

Has anybody here tried 8GB? With the 17" supporting 8GB, boy I wish they would allow it on older MBPs.

I'm hoping with Snow Leopard that 8GB becomes an option.

Apple :: MBP HDD
I am planning to buy base MBP sometime in next two weeks and then upgrade it to larger HDD by myself. I am wondering if the HDD that comes out of MBP can be used in my dying Dell Inspiron 640m (bought in 2007 and has 120 GB drive which has started to show signs of crashing anytime now).

Apple :: MB And MBP
I need to pick up a new notebook soon and I'm having a hard time deciding between the MB and the MBP. This will be my main computer and I do a good amount of traveling. Accordingly, I really want the portability of the MB, but I also really want the superior LCD of the MBP. Are there any other major differences I'm missing that might sway me? I'll be using this mainly for office applications and web surfing, but I'll also be doing occasional work in Adobe CS4 (I understand this would benefit from the MBP's dedicated graphics card).

Apple :: MBP/A Behind ACD
I'm currently looking at options like the Balmuda Floater (kind of describes what it... oops, heh heh heh) but these still need a degree of space to site. They also all vent downards in a nominally usable config, which I'm not convinced is the smartest idea.

I'm wondering if there's any solutions which fit behind the monitor (ACD) or something along those lines, and maybe feature more in the way of heat dissipation. I know you can get little shelves to mount on the back of ACD's and iMacs, was wondering if anyone had taken that idea further.

Failing that, perhaps a sideways stand? The Air isn't a priority, mainly for the 17-inch, but would be good if there was a solution for the Air as well. I did a stand for it when the Air first came out for someone else and that's fine, but if I do it for myself I know I'll spend too much time nerding all the details.

Apple :: MBP 13 Or 15
I want a MBP because I'd like to experience the whole OSX thing and whatnot. I have been a windows user all my life. OSX looks great and interesting!

I have desktop right now...
AMD 64 X2 4400 @ 2.4GHZ

A bit weak in today's standards... I get lags in FireFox after a while.

What should I get? I am going to be a Commerce student... and the reason why the 15 comes to mind is the i5 and the better GPU over the 13... the 13 still has the I2D... how much better is the i5 over the I2D? The 13 would provide much better mobility though.

Apple :: MBP With SSD
If I buy a third-party SSD, how would I install it into the MBP (apart from opening up the case and replacing the HDD). Do I have to specially format it or anything? Or is it just pop in, put recovery CDs in and off I go?

Does Mac OS X Snow Leopard have TRIM support for the 256GB SSD you can upgrade through the Apple Store or any SSD for that matter?

On another hand, would a 500GB 7.2k drive decrease battery life much as opposed to 5400rpm HDD or SSD?

Apple :: How Would You Set Up These HD's
I have some ideas as to how I would do this, but I wanted to hear from some of you how you would go about doing it. I haven't had to do this before and I would like things to work as seemlessly as possible.

What I am working with: 320GB @ 7200 in my MBP and 2x1TB @ 7200 in the form of a WD My Book Studio Edition II, which can be organized as 2 separate drives or in RAID 0 or RAID 1.

The 3D and CAD work that I do requires me to work in windows quite a bit. Because its a smoother workflow from the 3d and cad, I do most of my PS, Illustrator and InDesign work in Windows as well. I'll probably end up creating a 120-140 GB partition for Vista to be installed on.

I'd like to be able to access all the data that I have (currently about 500GBs) from both OS's. I would also like to be able to backup both the osx and vista partitions (hopefully automated).

I've read much of the Bootcamp thread, but haven't seen a discussion covering effective ways of backing up both os's with one backup drive as I think most people have.

Apple :: MacBook Or MBP
I think I decided on getting a mac; however, I am not sure whether to get the pro or normal. I am positive that I won't notice a difference in speed/performance for what I'll be using it for (browsing, word, pdf, email, research) so specs don't matter to me too much. I was mostly concerned about the frame. While the MacBook is made of polycarbonate, the MBP is aluminum. Are there significant differences in durability or structure that might make me want to buy the MBP?

Apple :: MacBook Pro And SSD
what model of SSD 128 Gb they install in MacBookPro (the manufacture, read/write speed, TRIM support). By chance is there a TRIM support in OS Leopard? I am realy hesitating between MacBookPro and new Latitude Z600. I'm not very familiar with Mac but hope it is fast and reliable enough with SSD. It's mostly for office use and travelling. I think about 15in with 2.53 CPU and 128 SSD.

Apple :: MBP 15 - Not The New One- Freezing
My mbp is kind of freezing when it reads files. For example if i click on a folder i have to wait like 40 secs for it to open and when i click on a picure i have to wait 40 more secs for it to show the preview... It doesnt freez 100% but it reads everthing so slow... I have bootcamp and this also happens on windows.. but only when i try to read the mac partition from windows. What could this be?

I have macdrive installed on the windows side and it shows that the mac partition is corruped. Does this have anything to do with it?

I think it may be some virus or something.. is there any free antivirus for mac?

Apple :: Is It Possible To Get Mac OS X, XP And 7 On The Same Machine
I have XP on my macbook pro via bootcamp/vmware. I tried putting 7 on it, but then XP stopped working. So I deleted the partition that 7 was installed on and XP worked again.

Is there a way I can have both XP and 7 working via bootcamp? As far as I know I can't, so I was thinking about running 7 with bootcamp and XP via vmware. Also ever since deleting the partition that 7 was installed on XP doesn't seem to be able to boot via vmware. It was says I have to remove the physical disk from the virtual machine then add it again. How do I do this?
