    I haven't purchased the Mac Mini yet, but for argument sake, let's say I have. I think I've described the situation fairly well. I could use some validation on whether I've got the process in the right sequence, or if there is a different solution. However, purchasing more than the one MacMini or another External HD is cheating (that's too easy):cool: Mac #1: MacBookPro, (2009) running 10.6.8, LOTS of stuff on it. (639gb/293gb available) Time Machine#1: For MacBook Pro. Says 455gb of 999 available. External HD and all seems to be working fine. Situation: I am keeping this...

    Has anyone ever had this issue? Previously i read of "itunes helper" that causes this to not install and produce this error. However the activity monitor shows no helper running. This is a PowerMac G5 with 10.5.8 installed http://imgur.com/pgbAay2 Any ideas?

    I need a confirmation: I have a MacBookPro running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I have the 10.6 disks. I recently formatted a 16gb USB, GUID, extended. I "theoretically" installed the Disk Snow Leopard onto the USB. I say theoretically because I haven't tested it. I recently found out, which I did not know, that one can partition a disk even with data on it, with no data loss. I thought partitioning would reformat. And, of course, I won't attempt it without the Time Machine back up. So, it was suggested I 1. Make sure the Time Machine is current. 2. Partition the MacBookPro with Snow...

    My G5ppc. has 8 gigs of ram. But after checking "About this Mac", it shows that I now have only 7 gigs. So I checked with the System Profiler and it shows that Dimm2/13 & Dimm3/J14 are at 512MB each instead of 1GB. Then I ran the Apple Hardware Test disc & it reported " Error detected at startup" and it showed " Error code: post/0/2048/Dimm3/14". What does that code mean and how do I fix it?

    Whilst shuffling data to make space on my HD, I moved all my photos to an external drive. Now, every time I launch iPhoto it becomes unresponsive and I have to force Quit. How can I fix this? (I've tried rebooting.) 2007 iMac, OS 10.9.4 Mavericks.

    My son has a 10.6.8 iMac and an HP Envy 5530 wireless printer and he can't connect. HP says there is 3 ways to connect: 1) Wireless direct between computer and printer 2) Through a wireless router 3) Through USB cable At his location, he does not won the wireless router and therefore cannot change any of ts settings - although I am not sure he would need to anyway. I am wondering if it pays to fool around with trying to get wireless to work. Would it be easier just to buy a USB cable?

    So I picked up a new external HD and it had to be formatted and since I had Disk Utility open,.. I had filled an 8G TD with a bunch of corrupted files that I backup for a hack fix job and thought to my smart self, "heck, I'll just do a quick format with disk utility on this TD since I already have it open". I used Mac OS Ext. (Journaled) Well, yep it erased everything, but now nothing about my computer sees the TD. Not finder, DU, not in terminal. So, I'm thinking it's gone, yea? If anyone has any ideas I'm open to hearing them! ;-) Thanks,

    How can I automate the execution of each MP 4 file used typically in training videos? I use Quick Time to play the files now, but I have to click on each one, then click on the play arrow. When the file has completed playing, I have to close it manually. The files typically look like this Chapter 1 File 1 File 2 File 3 ... File n Chapter 2 File 1

    The new iTunes update fills my entire 27Ē screen. The red, amber, and green buttons are not visible, and the lower right-hand corner is not available, so I canít reduce the window size. Even more provoking is the Window menu, where the Minimize and MiniPlayer options are disabled. The only options I have is a full-screen iTunes window or no iTunes window at all with the F3 key. How do I get my MiniPlayer back? iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

    I can't find the answer online, in RoaringApps or anyplace else. I saw a frightening thread the other day about iMovieHD not working and I need to confirm that iMovie '11, ver. 9.0.4 works fine in either an upgrade to Mavericks or a new version of Mavericks and migration to it. Tons of movies, edits, projects on externals and internal macbookpro and I cannot suddenly not be able to access these files. Thanks. And do I wait for Yosemite Sam to be finished (don't think I want to take a chance on a beta version).

    I originally bought an iMac with Snow Leopard installed. I have since upgraded to 10.9.4 Mavericks. Question: Can I record to Dual Layer discs or do I need to download an upgrade to record & play dual layer discs? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

    Haven't seen any notes on this yet. But I just saw that Aapl in "After hours" when up $5/share for about 60 seconds. Talk about your market timing. Any one know what's up?

    Absolutely! They just keep getting better, faster, clearer, & more functionality. In my case (contract), I locked in $170 from Gazelle to sell it after I get the new phone for $199. $30 for 2 years use seems too good to be true. A no-brainer!

    Well I pulled all the sticks in the upper bank as you suggested. I saw these tiny little markings on the circuit board. They were on the right side of the slots directly above the locking mechanism. So I got my magnifier & low and behold there were those markings! So here they are: The upper bank: 4 is J44, 3 is J42, 2 is J14, 1 is J12. The lower bank: 1 is J11, 2 is J13, 3 is J41, & 4 is J43. I hope this layout will help anyone else that has this problem. I rebooted from the Apple Hardware Test disc & it passed!! Thank you again!!

    I don't have an 8 slot G5 here, so I am going to make some guesses. Dimm0 is the topmost slot (marked 4, highest slot on the logic board), OR (guess 2): Dimm0 is the top center slot (marked 1 on the upper bank) That makes Dimm3 as either slot 1, or the second guess, is slot 4 (still in the upper bank of 4) So, how to proceed? Here's what I would do: Do NOT move any RAM sticks, except for upper bank slot 1 & 4. Before you swap any sticks, reseat ALL the sticks, but be sure to place each stick back in the same slots. AND - test your system. I would look at each stick, to make sure that...

    Thanks!!! I'll give that a try. I looked for the slot numbers on the circuit board. They are marked 4,3,2,1 then 1,2,3,4. Since the System Profiler's list was: DIMM0/J11, DIMM1/J12, DIMM2/J13, DIMM3/J14, DIMM4/J41, DIMM5/J42, DIMM6/J43, DIMM7/J44. Can I assume that if DIMM0/J11 is #1 on the first section of slots on the circuit board, then DIMM3/J14 should be the slot marked #2 in the second section of slots on the circuit board?

    post/0/2048/Dimm3/14 error simply means that Dimm3 in slot J14 is not passing the power on self test (POST) First step when memory is not recognized properly, is to try reseating all of your memory sticks. If you haven't done that recently, it's a good plan - and may fix your issue. I would remove all the memory sticks, then -firmly- reinsert back in the same slots. The only exception is for Dimm3 in slot J14. Swap that one with another that is currently not reporting a problem. I might choose to swap that with Dimm1. Run your AHT again after reseating all the memory sticks. If Dimm1...

    Also, if you move your mouse to the top right edge of your screen, you should see that blue "back to non-fullscreen" widget. Afterwards, it should be as you knew it, more or less. (In Yosemite, it'll be different, though.)
