    Hi guys, I have a pretty frustrating problem, since a few days my macbook pro 2009 is glitching when i open the finder. Mavericks used to run fine but not anymore. The problem kicks in after browsing thru a few folders, I made a screenshot so you guys get what I mean. As you can see the graphics are glitching, I searched for a solution and more people had the problem but the suggested tips didn't work for me. It only happens in the finder, after restarting the finder I can browse thru a few files an then the problem kicks in again... Do you guys have an idea maybe? ...

    Hi, Is there any Palm or similar handheld organizer out there that is compatible with the iMac using Mavericks? I'm getting the impression that PDAs are simply not usable with Mac, which strikes me as monumentally moronic. Sparrowhawk

    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 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...

    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.

    Whenever I try to launch a file, even one I just created, in Ulysses, I get It's driving me nuts. It's been since I got my system to 10.9. Now it's 10.9.4, and Ulysses 2.2 (build 2.2). Now there IS a newer version of Ulysses available, but it's Ulysses 3 and it's not a free upgrade. I'd rather get this one to run on my system first, then upgrade later when or if I feel like it. And NOT just because my app refuses to function. It worked fine before 10.9. Although then it was on a different Mac, and I think in 10.7.

    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...

    When purchasing/downloading OSX apps from the App store, is it possible to keep an offline backup as well? I've been told that you can simply copy the app itself from the /Applications/ folder, but of course that only assumes that the installer didn't spread lots of additional support files all over the hard drive.

    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?

    I just got an old PowerMac3,6 (G4 867 DP (MDD) without the hard drive. The stock drive was an UltraATA/100 hard drive. I'd like to put a more modern SATA drive inside. Any suggestions on doing this?

    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.

    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,

    You will not be able to use the TM drive from # 2 to restore on #1. So, yes, TM will be able to restore on its native or original set up Mac. So hold on to the TM from #1 until you have migrated your files and checked the running order of your apps. And don’t trash #2, until you are sure you have everything off of it and that goes for the TM #2 as well. Once you have made the move, checked over and launched your apps for a test run, you then can reformat and begin a fresh copy of TM.

    Apparently my first response vanished. I understand what you are saying (I think) regarding the Time Machines but isn't it true I cannot use a time machine to "reinstate" anything on a different computer if that TM wasn't native to begin with? I have to make sure no data is lost and that it is backedup and retrievable in the event there is a catastrophic failure (like when I upgraded the MacBookPro from 10.6.8 to 10.7 and lost all backups from a year; I was able to go back and retrieve one tm backup and didn't look forward on it again. ;-)

    Better: I can't accidentally reformat or make changes in the OS of any computer if there is a Time Machine related to it that isn't Native to it. Just in case I need to go backwards.

    Actually . . . you may be able to run Snow Leopard on it. My current machine came with Lion long ago. I had cloned my previous computer's drive, then erased and then copied the clone to it. Voila! This is despite the fact that the current machine never had Snow Leopard "originally" on it, and it caused the tech at the store I purchased it from's brain to explode, and not just because of the complex grammar. More relevant . . . I had a printer that only scanned on Snow Leopard. Finally satisfied with Mountain Lion, I simply used an Ext-HD for Snow Leopard . . . booted off of that. ...

    It is good that you are thinking ahead. First, the 190 GB on Mac 2 includes the OS and you won’t be copying those files, nor the similar applications to Mac 1 . It would most likely be documents and other files such as pictures, music, unique apps that are not on Mac 1. Put them side by side to compare what is really needed to move over. As for external HD for TM for Mac 3, when you connect the external to the new Mac, you will need to set up Time Machine. It will prompt you to prepare the drive. You can erase and format it before starting TM. I do suggest you turn off TM on both...

    It could be the name your router or modem assigns to you. That would give you added security rather than showing your computer’s real name.

    There are/were some HP models that need to be hardwired to the computer (usb cable) first for set up before the wireless will connect. Once that is done, you should be able to connect wirelessly between computer and printer - that is as long as he has a wireless card installed on the computer.
