Day one of my new MacBook Pro & I desparately need help with calendar and email

It's day one of my new relationship with a Mac, and I need help! I'd like to use microsoft exchange to sync my calendars to iCal & my emails the way I currently do with my iPhone 4 and iPad 2. The problem is that all I get are error messages. They either say that communication with the server cannot be established or communication to ports 80 & 440 cannot be established. One account I'd an ssl and the others are gmail. Please advise!

anyone? please? i would appreciate any information.

    Not possible, the current version of iTunes only allows syncing via iCloud which the 3G does not support.

  • What is the exact name of the cable I need to connect my old hard drive from my macbook pro (it has been taken out of the computer) to my new macbook pro?  I need to transfer files from the old hard drive to the new computer.

    What is the exact name of the cable I need to connect my old hard drive from my macbook pro, which has been removed from the computer, to my new macbook pro?  I need to transfere files from the old hard drive to the new computer.

    No eSATA to USB. Just a SATA/IDE to USB adapter. Google SATA/IDE to USB adapter and you will get tons of links to buy them. Most likely your local computer electronics store has them, although they might be more expensive buying locally than online.
    I have several. You can get either USB 2, which what I recommend, or USB 3. USB is backward compatible so a USB 3 adapter will work on a USB 2 port and a USB 2 adapter will work on a USB 3 port. Backward compatible in both directions.
    I suggest a USB 2 type because there have been some problems with certain USB 3 devices, the USB 3 interface used isn't all that good in those certain devices. USB 3 is still fairly new where as USB 2 has been around for over 10 years.

    Thank you LowLuster,
    At the apple store they said I needed an esata to usb wire.  But looking at wires on line has been confusing.  Is sata the same as esata?  How do I know if I need a usb 3 or usb 2?

    Hi Auracles1,
    Here's a pretty discussion regarding wireless printing with this device and a Mac.
    http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printer-networking-and-wireless/HP-Officejet-6500-E 709n-wireless-issue/m-p/258853
    I have a similar OfficeJet and it was a multi-step process. (1) Install printer drivers on the machine, (2) Add the printer queue in print & fax, (3) Run the "setup wizard" from the disc for wireless printing.

  • What configuration of the new macbook pro do I need to run FCS 3 without choppy playback.

    Yep, just wondering what configuration of the new macbook pro do I need to run FCS 3 without choppy playback or lagging.  I'm thinking about the 7200rpm, 2.2ghz, antiglare, 4gb ram, with 1gb GPU graphics card configuration

    Nothing wrong with the computer. Playback is dependent on the media and the drives.

    I open Word documents on my Mac using Pages and textedit without any problems.
    I also have a copy of OpenOffice and it can also open Word documents without any problems.
    Could you please provide more details on exactly what you mean when you say you having troubles opening Word documents? What kind of troubles?

  • Keep downloading Firefox 6.0.2 for Mac (as prompted) to my new Macbook Pro, running Lion (OS 10.7.1) and it won't open and install. WTF?

    I have Firefox version 3.6.22 (Mac) & keep downloading Firefox 6.0.2 for Mac (as prompted) to my new Macbook Pro, running Lion (OS 10.7.1) and it won't open and install. WTF?

    something similar has been happening to me for a a couple weeks (even before the most recent update, but now is definitely worse) on my 2010 MacBook Air. Firefox freezes upon startup, and then freezes maybe every twenty minutes or so when I'm actively using it, staying frozen for at least a minute or two. it drives me crazy.

    Can you still boot to the Recovery partition using Command and R whilst booting? Or did you wipe the Recovery partition as well?
    If your Recovery partition is still intact, you can simply boot to it and reinstall the OS via the Internet. If you wiped the Recovery partition, you can hold down Command, option and R keys whilst booting and boot into true Internet Recovery mode. You'll be able to reformat the hard drive, erasing all partitions (format it as "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" with a dingle GUID partition) and then reinstall the OS that shipped with your machine.
    Note that you should use a physical Ethernet connection when restoring over the Internet - it's three times slower if you use wifi.
    Try your Recovery partition first and if that doesn't work, use Internet Recovery.

    Since updating my iPhones, iPad and MacBook Pro I'm having problems with Calendars - I keep all the details of my work schedule on Calendars but since updating everything I am notified at 9 a.m. before each of my days off. Can someone please tell me how I can stop this? Also, how can I change that time (9a.m.) if I do want to be notified about something?
    Thanks.

    Do you have MMS turn on in Settings?
    Are you provisioned by your carrier to use MMS?
    Lastly, give your phone carrier a call, as MMS is a carrier feature.

  • How do I connect my MacBook Pro to an LCD TV (with HDMI and S-Video ports)?

    How do I connect my MacBook Pro to an LCD TV (with HDMI and S-Video ports)?  I assume I would need to use the DVI to Video adapter that came with my computer to connect to my LCD tv.  I'm just not sure which port I should use on the TV.  The HDMI port is being used for digital cable.
    Also, does anyone know if this can be done wirelessly? 

    For a 2010+ MBP you can connect with a Displayport to HDMI, which will include Audio.
    With older MBP you will need a displayport to HDMI, if you want audio to the actually TV, then you will need to get a cable with either digital out from MBP to the HDMI, or USB audio mixed into the HDMI

  • New MacBook Pro disabled keystrokes! HELP!

    Hi there, folks
    After upgrading to the new MacBook Pro and and the Leopard operating system I can no longer use the keyboard keystrokes that replicated hitting the 0 or asterix on the number pad. It used to be fn+m for ram preview and fn+j for marking during playback, but now when I click those buttons nothing happens. Is there some setting in osX I have to change?
    Thanks for your help!
    Best,
    Fredo

    I'll reiterate my vote for a whole replacement keyboard. I have a semi-regular gig where I go to a client's office with my MacBook Pro and do AE work onsite for a day-at-a-time. Without numpad functionality, the MBP keyboard is basically useless in AE, and I'm not prepared to reassign and re-learn a kajillion keystrokes just to get a day's work done.
    I used to use a logitech USB numeric keypad, which had all the extra keys like PgUp/PgDwn etc.
    But a local store was selling the older white Apple Bluetooth keyboards (not the newer silver ones, which now have no numpad either - somebody at Apple is seriously on drugs) for US$35 each. I bought a couple and use one via Bluetooth on my MBP. Because it's the same keyboard I use on my desktop machines, it makes my work environment identical.
    Not the best solution in the world, but one that has, frankly, been forced on me by Apple. They simply aren't considering applications like AE (or ProTools, or a bunch of other Pro apps) when they ditch such basic functionality.

  • After I used the migration tool to transfer contents of my previous MacBook Pro I cannot log in to my new MacBook Pro. I have tried using old and new passwords but to no effect. I cannot use my Apple ID. How can I re-set my MBook to factory setting pls?

    I have been a proud owner of Apple products for many years. However, this problem is very frustrating! Any help will be appreciated. I used the migration tool to transfer the contents of my old MacBook Pro to my new shiny MacBook Pro Retina! After migration finished I tried to access my new MacBook Pro retina. However, when asking me to log in it refuses to accept the passwords from either the new MacBook or the old one! I do not have the option of using my Apple ID either.... Please help! Unfortunately, I am past my 90 day Apple Support!!

    Restart holding down the CMD+R keys, launch Disk Utility and erase the HD, quit DU, and restore the OS. On first boot, use the Setup Assistant to do the migration. Details in Pondini's Setup New Mac guide.

  • FCE won't open on my new MacBook Pro - says I need a Quartz Extreme Card

    I just bought a new MacBook Pro Laptop, and since I was having lots of hardware and software related problems with my old one, I clean installed everything rather than transferring things through archive.
    Anyhow, I was initially able to register and install FCE from the original disk and then downloaded and installed all available upgrades. I opened it up, tried "Log and Transfer" to upload some video I'd shot on my Canon Vixia HFS10, and it worked fine. I saved and closed, but now, next morning when I tried to open FCE to edit my video it wouldn't open. A "Minimum System Check" came up that said "This system does not meet the following minimum requirements: Final Cut Express requires that your system have a Quartz Extreme Capable Video Card." I'm pretty sure that my NVIDIA GeForce 9400M + NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT cards meet the requirements and that Final Cut Express just doesn't recognize that they are much better than the minimum requirements it is programmed to look for. How can I fix this? I saw another thread on a similar topic suggesting that someone delete their FCE, and then perform a clean install, but that's effectively what I've just gone through, and I'm not in the mood to spend a couple of hours seeing if the same thing I just did fixes the problem I have now. This seems like something that would be an easy programming fix, probably a simple modification to a preferences file, but I wonder if anyone out there has the solution?
    Message was edited by: nate.andersen

    No, I have FCE 4 - should have said that - and it worked on my older Intel based MacBook Pro.
    As it turns out, though, I think I've solved the problem, adapting a solution to a related problem I found on MacRumors.com. Don't know why this is necessary, but here's the solution I tried:
    1. right click on the FCE application icon and select "Show Package Contents"
    2. open the "Contents" folder and then open the "info.plist" folder in Text Edit
    3. find the line that says: "<key>AELMinimumQuartzExtremeCapable</key>," and replace it with "<key>AELMinimumGeForceCapable</key>", and then make sure that the next line says "<string></string>" without any number specified. Or, if you have some other kind of graphics card that you know is compatible, you could say what that is instead of GeForce. I found it doesn't work just to delete this line completely.
    Again, I don't know why Apple didn't build in this flexibility when they updated their standard Graphics cards, but in any case this solution seems to work.

  • Just bought new macbook pro, do I need anti-virus software?

    Does a new macbook pro come with anit-virus software already loaded on it?

    ya, the OS it self, but in all seriousness. no there is not standard anti-virus and most people get more issues from anti-virus software than from any virus out there. there are very very few viruses written for macs and for the most part i cannot see how it could slip in easily to your machine.
    some people around here do use them but i do not so the only advice i can give you really is that norton AV is not that good for Apple compared to the other ones out there but really its not a big deal to get it.

  • HT4796 recently purchaced a macbook pro and cannot transfer music,contacts,notes etc. from my iphone 4 onto my new macbook pro!! please help

    Im a ex windows vista user, who evently became fed up and converted to a macbook pro. i just purchesed the macbook pro yesterday and have been trying to transfer all my music, contacts, notes, apps, etc. from my iphone 4 onto my new macbook pro. nothing seem to be working without it trying to erase all my info off of my iphone 4. I didnt think this would be a issue where they are both apple devices, but im now starting to regret the decision to purchace this macbook pro. please help me so i dont loose all my info trying to sync both devices. thanks for you help and advice

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    You can only sync the iPhone with one Mac or PC, so your Mac is asking you to erase the device because you synced it with another Mac or PC. To avoid this, I recommend you to copy the "iTunes" folder of your old Mac or PC (in Music folder) to the Music folder of your Mac, so you'll have the same data on your Mac as the data you had on the PC.
    To transfer contacts, notes, etc., I recommend iCloud > http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/
