    I recently switched from a G5 to an Intel iMac. Now my Time Machine no longer shows dates of the backups and will not allow a restore of data. Is this an inherent problem switching between the two processors?

    Has *anyone* got BTMM working wirelessly?

    Back to my Mac is a great idea, except I have not found anyone who can get it to work other than on a local network. As far as I know, all attempts to use a wireless connections fail, yet Apple has apparently made no effort to acknowledge (let alone fix) the problem. Does anyone have a...

    airport card for eMac

    I recently installed an airport extreme network, which works fine. I would like to include an older eMac which currently has no card installed. From reading a couple of posts it seems that the nature of the eMac determines which card I should add. The Apple site has a list of serial numbers that...

    Mac Mail and Mime

    Suddenly Mail has started treating all attachments and files cut and pasted into a message very strangely. Every attachment has a Mime file in addition to the original attachment and the content of a cut/paste into the message appears as a Mime file. As far as I know I have not changed any of...

    Lost all Firewire

    I have two firewire external drives on a dual 2.7 GHz G5 with 1 GB RAm and running 10.4.8. Yesterday they both disappeared from the desktop. Rebooting does not bring them back up and it makes no difference if I plug them into the ports on the back or the front of the machine. Any ideas on...

    I would like to capture images from a video camera that has S video output on my Mac. Will the S video adaptor for output work? I know that sounds dumb, but not all adaptors work in both directions. If not, is there a simple solution? Thanks

    Recently a Mac icon appeared on my desktop, just above the dock (which I keep on the right of the screen). I cannot move it, and nothing happens if I click it. It doesn't seem to do any harm, but I am curious as to what has happened. Any ideas?
