Do I need the Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update...

...if I run only an iMac and a Windows laptop?

Yes, if you need to migrate from one computer to a newer one or another one. It isn't required for Windows.

    You can't share/play a music CD using Remote Disk. It's a limitation that Apple built in.
    "MacBook Air and Mac mini do not support playing DVD movies or audio CD media with Remote Disc."
    Remote Disk is limited to data transfers.
    You will have to use the MBA external superdrive, or another compatible external DVD device hooked directly to the Macbook Air.
    Otherwise, you will need to rip the CD's contents using your PC and transfer the music as data files.

  • The Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update - Please help!

    I have recently transferred my files from my 2007 MacBook Pro to my new 2008 MacBook Pro via target disk mode. I have transferred 50 GB of files by copying and pasting the files, and I have used a Firewire 800 cable.
    Since I have successfully transferred my files, I have just noticed the following update.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3174
    Is this update related to the process that I have used?
    By not having installed this update before, could I have corrupted any files?
    Should I erase the files, install the update, and copy the files over again, or is this update for something different?
    Please, please shed some insight!
    Thanks.
    Trisha

    Your files would not have suffered any corruption due to the lack of the aforementioned update.

  • Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update" (1.1)

    I recently installed the "Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update" (1.1)" update using the Software Update application on 10/19/08. The installation went fine with no errors or apparent problems.
    I noticed yesterday that when I adjust the brightness up or down on my display ( I have an original 15" Apple Studio Display) the graphic that used to appear showing the brightness level no longer appears but the brightness does change. Also, I have my Epson USB printer connected to one of the USB ports in the monitor and it no longer appears in my Printer list and now I can not print.
    When I go into the System Profiler, click on Hardware Graphics/Display it gives me the information for the Display correctly but at the last line it shows " Display: Status: No display connected". When I click on Hardware USB it just shows a generic description USB Bus with no other information included for the monitor or the printer (printer is attached to USB Hub in the monitor}. When I click on Hardware Printers I get "No information found."
    I also used to be able to use the power button on my monitor to turn on the computer and display at the same time but that no longer works.
    I have tried Repairing Permissions and also the Pram/NVram reset to no avail.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Bill

    After changing cables, swapping ports, running Applejack AUTO in deep clean mode, booting up with my hard drive that had not been updated with the "Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update" (1.1)" and finally the Tiger Retail boot installation DVD, I finally gave up without solving the problem and shut down the computer.
    After 2 more cups of coffee, I realized there was 1 thing I totally forgot to do. I remembered that I had not unplugged the computer from the outlet and held the reset button located near the battery on the motherboard.
    You guessed it, everything is now working fine.
    The only thing I can not figure out is why this happened after running the "Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update" (1.1)". Go figure.

  • Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update version 1.1

    I have an original Air and older Intel iMac and Remote Install utility version 1.0
    I see there is a new Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update version 1.1
    The details of this update states:
    Products Affected
    MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008)
    So I am concerned about whether I should proceed to install this on my iMac to update the Remote Install capability since none of my hardware is specifically mentioned.

    Switch900, The basic process works very well. The basic instructions are at:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1131
    I tested since I did the recent update (even though my version is still showing version 1.0) and it is working properly. However someone tipped me off to go to:
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/migrationanddvdcdsharingupdate.html
    to get the update again (without getting it via Software Update) and in his case, that gave him version 1.1 I have yet to do that and will need to test again once I have done that.
    But basically you install this software on your MAC or PC that has a DVD drive, load a disc containing software that you want to install on your Air, in that other MAC or PC and then get to it from the Air and install the software over your local network.

  • Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update Problem

    Hi, my Mac OS 10.4.11 has a software update on 10-19-2008. It installed the update Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update, since then, my sharing panel stopped working, I can`t set any option of Services tab and my Firewall tab does not open, it is gray and I can`t click on it. Just Internet tab work now. How can I fix that? Someone had this same problem?

    Hi Kaaru Ando ,
    I can't find how to just ask a question.
    Yes, it can be hard to find... the problem is if there are Categories at the top, you won't see the Post New Topic link, like here...

  • Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update?

    Do we need it? I don't have a MB nor a MBP nor a MB Air...and don't plan on buying one any time soon. Can we ignore this update?

    Thanks. I believe ya, but kinda wishing for more responses. Lol

  • If I do a clean install on my MacBook Pro will I be able to re-install apps (FCP, Aperture, MS Office etc.) from a Time Machine backup, or will I need the original install DVDs with authorization codes?

    I have two questions...
    1) If I do a clean install on my MacBook Pro will I be able to re-install apps (FCP, Aperture, MS Office etc.) from a Time Machine backup, or will I need the original install DVDs with authorization codes? (because I don't have them)
    2) Has anyone ever seen anything like this before on their computers?
    The Apple Genius' were stumped by my laptop issues and said they'd never seen anything like it before and recommended I did a clean install. Below you can see my trash bin, and if you look at the "Empty" button it reads "N201" and then there's the "N39" to the left of it. You can also see these numbers over by the folder area--"SD5, SD6, SD7." But that's not all...
    When I right click on items I see the numbers again. Instead of "Open with" I get "N152" and there's an "N35" and "LB1" towards the bottom.
    I have no idea what's going on so I'm just going to do a clean install on my machine but I don't want to lose my apps. I don't have the original install DVDs for them anymore. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks!

    You don't lose them.  You can always redownload them from the app store after you log back in with your Apple ID.
    "Buy, download, and even redownload.
    You can install apps on every Mac you use and even download them again. This is especially convenient when you buy a new Mac and want to load it with apps you already own."

  • HT5287 If DVD Movies, Audio CD's and even burning CD and DVD's are not supported, what is the point of DVD & CD Sharing then? Wouldn't it just be better to remote in or use a thumb drive if it's only able to be used for data transfer?

    If DVD Movies, Audio CD's and even burning CD and DVD's are not supported, what is the point of DVD & CD Sharing then? Wouldn't it just be better to remote in or use a thumb drive if it's only able to be used for data transfer?
    Or am I missing the bigger picture?

    As long as you have a Superdrive or an external burner/drive, burning, watching, installing, etc. from CD or DVD will work just fine. And so will sharing.

    A 15" mid-2009 MBP RAM specifications are: 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM.
    As has been pointed out, OWC is an excellent source for Mac compatible RAM.  Crucial is another first rate source for Mac RAM.  RAM from either vendor will work just as well as any purchased from Apple with the bonus of being less expensive and having a lifetime guarantee.
    Ciao.

  • HT4796 If my PC shuts down during the migration and I restart the assistant, do I have to do anything with my iMac?

    If my PC shuts down during the migration and I restart the assistant, do I have to do anything with my iMac?

    Check the user accounts via System Prefereces > Users & Groups.
    The migration creates a new user account each time it runs, so depending on what it was doing/had done, it might leave a partial user account. 

  • Need the complete and correct way to reset Safari 5.1

    Need the complete and correct way to reset Safari 5.1 the reason being is that 1. Even with the fix for .pdf's opening in Sarfai, they still don't and I have local copy of a html file that I use to access my most frequent sites and it refuses to open when Safari loads.
    I need to know what to save so that I can reinstall it after the reset. I don't want to lose my cookies and passwords that I have saved.

    Well I went back to one of my old discussions from a few months ago and found the right way to reset Safari but also dicovered that the file that my other older Mac had the same problem with, were I could'nt load a .pdf file into Safari as well as play video files, like the one that Apple posted of the Stve Job's tribute yesterday.QuickTime would'nt load so this morning  got my act together and took each file that I thought might be corrupt out till I found the one that was, having to restart Safari and shut it down.
    the file in the
    Home/Library/Preferences>com.apple.Safari.plist was the culprit. I am now trying to find a way to see how one can tell if this file is corrupt before backing it up, since "plists" are not a file to mess with.
    I hate resetting Safari since it destroys a bunch of files that one builds up over a long period of time, and hate to destroy all that work just because of one file. Hopefully if someone reads this they can find a way of having Safari back it up on a on going basis but making sure it is'nt corrupt in the process.

  • How do I edit a merged clip in Audition, that was created in premiere to correct the synchronisation, and have it all updated to the premiere clip?

    Hello,
    How do I edit a merged clip in Audition, that was created in premiere to correct the synchronisation, and have it all updated to the premiere clip?
    I have tried several tutorials but these either:
    - show correction in premiere sequence (which is not practical; given the huge number of files we have)
    - or show the editing in audition of a sequence, not the clip.
    We have started merging audio and video (removing the original audio during merge) but some of the merged clips are out of sync, so we need to correct manually, BUT we want to correct the merged clip, which may or may not end up being used, so we do not want to take it to the sequence as all we are doing is prepare the synced files for editing.
    Any idea how I can correct the synchronisation in Audition?, when I right click on clip and select "Edit in Adobe Audition" I get a list of files but not a multitrack session where I can see my video and audio tracks.

    if premiere pro doesn't sync your footage properly, and you have a huge number of files, you may want to look at pluraleyes.  there is a demo, and if it works properly, it would save you time to have it done right the first time, instead of tracking down random merged clips with bad sync.
    premiere will either export a complete sequence or "edit clip in audition". the edit clip will create a copy of the original audio and open that in audition. there is no dynamic link, its just an audio file open in two programs at the same time.  since there is no dynamic link, its not possible to bring merged clips into audition.
    Adobe Premiere Pro Help | Synchronizing audio and video with Merge Clips
    Once created, the merged clip cannot be re-synchronized, or adjusted. You must make a new merged clip.
    Merged clip audio results in mono track audio only.Final Cut Pro XML and AAF interchange formats are not supported.
    this doesn't give me much hope that audition or any other adobe program outside of premiere will help you fix the problem merged clips.

  • I have an app in my app store that is requiring an update but I never purchased the app and when I click update, another apple ID pops up that is not mine.  Now i keep getting reminders to update the app and I cant get rid of it from the app store.  Help.

    I have an app in my app store that is requiring an update but I never purchased the app and when I click update, another apple ID pops up that is not mine.  Now i keep getting reminders to update the app and I cant get rid of it from the app store.  Help.

    You installed a hacked app, originally from the Mac App Store. It contains the receipt for a different app, downloaded using an account that you don't control. You need to identify and remove the hacked app.
    Important: The app you need to remove is not necessarily the one named in the App Store notice. For example, if the App Store says you need to update "Twitter," the hacked app may be "Angry Birds" or something else entirely. Don't make any assumptions about which app you're looking for. To find it, you have to carry out a systematic search.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:
    kMDItemAppStoreHasReceipt=1
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C).
    In the Finder, press the key combination command-F to open a search window, or select
    File ▹ Find
    from the menu bar. In the search window, select
    Search: This Mac
    from the row of tokens below the toolbar. Below that is a popup menu initially showing Kind. From that menu, select  Other...
    A sheet will drop down. In that sheet, select Raw Query and click OK or press return.
    Now there will be a text box to the right of popup menu. Click in that box and paste (command-V).
    The search window will show all the App Store products you've installed. Compare those search results with the list of your purchases from the App Store. To see the complete list, you may need to unhide hidden purchases. If any apps were download from the App Store using other Apple ID accounts that you control, sign in to the store under each of those ID's and check the purchases.
    At least one of the items listed in the search window is not among your purchases in the App Store. Move each such item to the Trash. You may be prompted for your administrator password. Empty the Trash.
    Log out and log back in. Test.
