    Mac Audio vs PC Audio

    Macs have built in 16 bit wavetable sound built in. The sound quality of digitized sound can be improved by using a Griffin iMike. It attaches by USB. They also make a Pro version. A card is not needed for that. It would be nice to have surround sound support, but even if you had the hardware...

    Disk Utility cannt mount Macintosh HD

    You need a better disk utility. Disk Warrior has seldom failed me. It is a one trick pony, but it is the best at fixing disk directory damage. If you can't afford it, try a user group, and ask if anyone has it. http://www.alsoft.com/DiskWarrior/index.html

    replaced reed switch, problem bigger.

    It sounds like a hardware problem with the video, but I am not sure. The other resets you can do are NVRAM and PRAM. If you can't see anything, you can't do NVRAM, right? Or maybe you can. Just fly blind and do it. Hold Command-Option-O-F as you start up. After a minute, it should be up. (It...

    Monitor not receiving signal from G4

    It is possible that the PRAM battery is week, or the OS corrupted the monitor settings. I had a similar situation yesterday with Tiger, whatever the cause. If you clock needs to be reset after a shutdown overnight, you need a battery. Radio Shack has them, although they don't always know they...

    [How To] get the Dashboard to update faster.

    Dashboard does not just get slower, it uses more RAM as time goes on. That is why it gets slower after a few days. Take a look at the Activity Monitor. You don't have to reboot, just log out. This is a bug that I hope is fixed soon. These tiny apps use major RAM, hundreds of megs. It is one...

    Motorola StarMax 3000

    I recommend that you get OS 8.6. It uses far less RAM then 9.X, and that machine does not hold much RAM. It should run fairly well, but there is no CD driver in the Apple CD for non-Apple CD drives, or to format drives. That was on the original CD for the StarMax. They provided CD-ROM Toolkit...

    Need help configuring HP LaserJet 6MP to work on OS 9.0.4 via router IP

    The HP 6 is a PostScript printer, and is supported by OS 9 or X with the PPD. On the D-Link page the footnote says: 1— Printer Server software included is for Windows Operating Systems only. Postscript Level 1 and 2 printers can be connected to the DI-704P for Macintosh OS 9.x or X computers...

    Form factor and buying new parts

    Most Mac parts are standard stuff, at least since Steve Jobs returned. Same monitors, same mice, same drives, (except not all CD or DVD drives are supported by the OS software) even PC keyboards work except the Alt and logo keys are swapped. Open your Mac and take out the fan and take it with...

    Plugging my guitar into my Ibook...

    You have connected your headphone jack on your amp to your headphone jack on your iBook. They are both outputs. The iBook does not have an audio input, but you can get one. The Griffin iMike is one device, and it even does a better job at converting the analog signal to digital than the built...

    Public folder permissions problem

    I have the same exact problem. I have an idea on how to fix it, but I have not had time to work on it: Use an Applescript as a Folder Action to change the permissions of files added to the folder. I don't think you can do it in AppleScript alone; it would have to call a shell script. The script...
