I've got my Vista computer and OS X computer on the same network. I set up Mac's file sharing via SMB. So I can see my entire Mac HD from my Vista computer now. I tried transferring some files to it, and it was incredible slow, around 170kbps. I know there's ways to transfer much faster than this, so maybe I'm doing something wrong.
The MacBook is wired to the router, while the Vista is wireless. At the moment I don't have an extra ethernet cable.
I have Y510P with "Qualcomm Atheros Ar8171/8175 Pci-e Gigabit Ethernet Controller" Network Card. When I want share my files with my other laptop the network speed shows just 100Mb/s. My other Laptops are with Giga Ethernet Port (HP DV6 6080SE) and Cable is Cross (Cat 5E).
I' ve been using a pc forever. Looking at a Macbook Pro 13" or smaller. How easy is it to transfer files from a pc to mac? I use ACT for contract tracking software and want to use it on the new MAC as well. I have word docs. I get files sent to me in word too.
When I go away for work travel, I need to have access to my PST files that I bring along. On my old T60, I used a cracked version of Outlook 2k. It was clunky, but did the job. Are there any Mac-based programs that will let me view my PST files and pull out any attachments or emails I may need?
I recently uninstalled VM fusion. Probably not correctly. Being used to a mac all i did was drag and drop the icon to the trash. Then i realized it still was somewhat on the computer. So i manually deleted it folder off the harddrive. However there are 4 files it cant delete because they are in use , and when i right click on a rar file it still says "extract with winrar - windows xp pro 2- vm ware fusion" It's getting annoying.
I am unable to boot into the OS, so I am going to format my drive and re install the OS. But, before I do that I have some files that I need to get off from my Music and Pictures folder. I have the latest OS X, so how can I get these off. I have an external hard drive so the only part left is getting to the files.
I have a 250Gb Maxtor Harddrive which is 2.5" and formatted as FAT32 (so I'm able to use it on my Mac and work PC), I have roughly 100Gb worth of research documents on there already which I constantly update every fortnight. Just recently I tried to copy some video files onto the harddrive but it doesn't seem to work?
A few problems, it wouldn't copy as the little box always said 'preparing to copy' but never did anything so I kept restarting my Macbook untill it finally would copy and now it has copied over but I don't see the files on the harddrive?
i need some recommendations on what to use to unzip/unrar files on my new mac. i heard the unarchiver is good but it wouldn't extract any of my password protected .rar's that i downloaded online. im using unrarx right now but i hate how it start extracting before prompting me for a password.
Double-clicking files in the Finder under Snow Leopard launches applications associated with the types of the files regardless of which applications used to create those files. I like it but I can see why those users who have been using Mac for 2 decades hate it. Other than that it forces one to adopt a new habit, I think it makes sense both conceptually and practically to ignore creator codes for most users.
is it possible to transfer pdf or powerpoint files from your computer to the ipad and then use the ipad to read them. By pdf files i mean like school syllabi, research papers, etc. As a student, I am looking for an alternate to using my laptop to read such material, and if the ipad fits these needs, I would like to purchase one.
So I got the blinking folder with a question mark when the macbook tries to boot up. A quick google search said something about missing boot files and booting from a CD.
The macbook wasn't bought new from Apple and I don't have the install CD that came with it. Can I use the install CD from another macbook? If so, is there a stipulation as to which version of OS X install CD I can use?
I can't and don't remember what version of OS X I have on the computer that is having problems. Is there a way to find out?
I picked up a 320 GB HDD at walmart. It is USB which I know will work fine. What format does it have to be formatted in so I can copy the files from the mac running Leopard to a Windows machine running Vista?
i had a few glitches while browsing the web and reading my tutorials on acrobat reader...the temperature has been going quite hot recently remaining in the 70's, sometimes going more and rarely in the upper 60's....do you think this is a dying gpu?
I am trying to copy some dmg files from my mbp to an external hard drive (a western digital 1tb essential, and a 250gb wd passport). I get this "error code 0" when I try to copy the files larger than 4gb. Now I heard that this is because it is a fat32 drive or something like that. Is there a way to fix this without buying a different hard drive?
I just bought an apple Time Capsule and started using it last night, router and switch works great, but can I use that as an external harddrive, because I tried to transfer files from my laptop to time capsule but it always gives me errors saying that the device is disconnected and whatnot. Anyone got any words on how to use it as an external harddrive freely? By the way, I use it on my Windows 7.
I just got my 1st macbook and was trying to burn win 7 iso file in my macbook.
1st problem, it wont let me copy and drag/paste the files from the usb, said that i do not have enough access/permission.....then the copying thingy hangs, will not close until i forcequit the finder. Then all the files in the usb flashdisk disappeared....could not be seen...cant eject it eitherhad to unplug it without ejecting .
I tried burning with my brother's old macbook (tiger) everything was a breeze, no prob except the dvd was not able to be read when i try to boot with bootcamp....
I have tried repairing permission with disk utility but that didnt work either.
