    Hard disk - how to proceed? Part 2

    It worked! The scan was still running when I left for work (over 12 hours after kicking it off) but when I got home it had successfully identified the data files on the damaged disk. The test recovery worked fine, so I paid the $89 for the activation key and successfully recovered the lot. As...

    Hard disk - how to proceed? Part 2

    Cheers Viro, appreciate your help. What I'm doing at the moment is using Data Rescue's Demo version to scan the damaged hard disk - they have a demo that lets you do the scan but only allows you to recover one file, a very good and sensible way of letting you see if their utility is going to...

    Hard disk - how to proceed? Part 2

    Thanks for the suggestion about Data Rescue, I might try that. $89 isn't so bad, DiskWarrior cost me £78 yesterday. The only way I can see the problem Mac as a Firewire drive is in Disk Utility, which doesn't give me an option to do anything. I can't see it using the finder, and can't see a way...

    Hard disk - how to proceed? Part 2

    Thanks for the suggestion but doesn't seem to have worked - ironically Disk Utility on the attached (live) Mac can see the problem Mac as a Firewire drive but can't do anything about it, whereas Cocktail (which might be able to do something) doesn't see it! I might add that the hardware...

    HD recovery with DiskWarrior question

    I'm trying to repair my hard disk with DiskWarrior right now. It's taken about half an hour to complete the process each time I've tried, so it sounds like yours has "hung" somehow.

    Hard disk - how to proceed? Part 2

    The scenario is a failed hard disk containing some photo files that I want to save if at all possible. The advice below (thanks guys!) was to try DiskWarrior or to start up the iMac as a Firewire drive whilst linked to another Mac and copy over the files. I bought DiskWarrior and ran it, it...

    Hard disk problem - how to proceed?

    I have a G4 flat-screen iMac running OSX Panther. Yesterday it completely froze up, and on trying to reboot I was faced with a plain grey screen with just a small folder icon and within it alternating a Finder "face" logo and a question mark. By searching this site today I learned how to get...

    Sudden Internet access problem

    It's fixed!! I decided to take a look at the Airport Setup Assistant, and I asked it to rescan and then connect to my home network (where it has claimed to be connected all along). Lo and behold it is now back on the internet, I'm actually typing this message on the recalcitrant iBook itself...

    Sudden Internet access problem

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've found the System Profiler and under "Network Overview" it reports the following: Flags 0x8863<Up,Broadcast,b6,Running,Simplex,Multicast> Ethernet Address 00.30.65.28.03.51 IP 10.0.1.2 Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 Broadcast 10.0.1.255 Any clues there...

    Sudden Internet access problem

    Still have the problem! A colleague at work has suggested that it might be a problem with the Airport card in the iBook - his theory is that it can't be the Airport base station as my old PC can still connect wirelessly no problem, and it can't be the iBook itself as it connects fine when I use...

    Sudden Internet access problem

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I've tried reselecting just Airport, and restarting the iBook, but it's still saying "connected via ethernet" and refusing to find any websites. The Network settings in System Preferences show it is configured using DHCP and has an IP address of 10.0.1.2...

    Sudden Internet access problem

    The iMac is wired directly into my Speedtouch router, whilst the iBook connects via the genuine Airport base station. The really strange thing is that this set up has worked fine for over a year, and I'm not aware that anything changed - I just suddenly lost the ability to access any internet...

    Sudden Internet access problem

    I have an iBook (800mz G3) running OSX 10.2.8, which I've had wirelessly connected to the internet via Airport (original, not extreme). For over a year this has worked fine, but suddenly I can't access any websites. The Internet Connect utilty reports that it is connected with a strong signal...

    Airport help please

    Thanks for replying. I was trying to do it non-wirelessly through the iMac, but it wouldn't have it. Ironically I have in fact solved the problem by using the iBook, which allowed me to reset the basestation settings wirelessly. There is a reset button on the base station but pressing it...

    Airport help please

    Hope someone can help a non-technical person with an Airport problem. I had a working set-up with my iMac connected directly to a router, and an Airport base station wich my Airport-carded iBook uses to connect to the internet. I wanted to add a PC to the network, and was having some...

    I had a dream, hem, nightmare

    Sorry if I have annoyed anyone by going off-topic. In an attempt to get back, but still with a car-related point, I have been investigating in-car satellite navigation systems. Built-in ones are very expensive, but it's now possible to get some quite spohisticated systems that attach to a PDA...

    I had a dream, hem, nightmare

    Hey Phatsharpie, you've got to be US based, right? I have American friends who like Volvos, I just can't understand it. Maybe it's just the attraction of something foreign that seems exotic - I'm sure there are European enthusiasts of American cars that Americans think are rubbish! Over...

    Airport help please

    Thanks for your help everyone. I tried the suggestions with no success, but on another site (dedicated to UK ADSL issues) I saw someone else had asked a similar question, and the advice given was to use the Airport base station as a "bridge". In practical terms this meant going into the...
