Dell :: Moving Files From Protected HDD From Dead Inspiron 8600 To 1525?

Nov 7, 2008

When I try to access my files on one of those file transfer boxes that can be used as an external drive it is impossible to read my files or play the mp3s. I had a password on my account and now that the comp it was on is dead I cannot go back and fix that. The 1525 uses SATA and the 8600 had PATA? i think thats right. But the main thing is I am locked out of my old files and not abe to transfer them.

What can I do? 8600 was xp and 1525 vista of course

Apple :: MBP 15": Moving HDD To SuperDrive Slot

Dec 24, 2009

I've been off the forums for quite a while now, but it's great to be back and part of the discussion again. I missed this place!

So I've got a discussion topic:

How easy is it to swap your internal HDD and put it in the SuperDrive slot? Has anyone done this? Can this be done in-house without having to send my computer away?

I'm talking uMBP 15" - the one where you can actually open the battery pack out and flush the HDD (and ram) out.

I'm thinking of buying a SSD for my main (boot) drive and having the 320GB one swapped with the SuperDrive.

Apple :: Mac - Access To PST Files

Jul 14, 2009

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?

Apple :: How Do I Delete Files

Mar 8, 2009

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.

Apple :: How Does Mac OS X Handle Files >4.3 GB

Jan 21, 2009

I used a Windows laptop and I needed to format in NTFS to transfer files >4.3 GB. What does Mac OS X need to do?

The reason I ask is because I just got a hard drive that I formatted in MS DOS FAT (so that Windows and Mac can read the drive).

Apple :: Can't Transfer Files Onto A USB Harddrive

Jan 25, 2009

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?

Is there anything I can do? I'm running 10.5.5

Apple :: Sharing Files Over A Network

Jul 19, 2009

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.

Apple :: Snow Leopard - Opening Files In SL

Sep 26, 2009

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.

Apple :: Temp Files/folders On MacOS

Apr 4, 2009

I'm just curious if Mac OS X has anything similar to the Temp folder found in Windows?

Particularly during program installs, does the OS extra temp files somewhere in the HD?

Aside from the browser history and temporary files (which I can clear within the browser), are there anything else that I need to clear every now and then?

Apple :: Missing Boot Files And Booting From A CD

Jun 7, 2009

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?

Apple :: Can I Use My Mobileme Account With IPad For Files

Apr 11, 2010

I just ordered an iPad and I was wondering if I could see my files on me.com with it. I should be able to, right? I mean, there is an app for that on the iPhone.

Then I could 100% use my MBP files that are stored on me.com, right?

I am asking this cause I see lots of reviews that say you don't have access to all your files, you only have the files you set to sync (in which case I would need to sync my MBPiPad all the time).

This is very weird for Apple not to use their own products together completely, more than email & contacts. By the way, are notes synced to ME.com? On the iPad?

Apple :: Error Code 0 When Copying Files To External

Feb 15, 2009

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?
