There's no reason for a standard external USB hard drive enclosure not to work on a Mac. The technology is an industry standard. As you don't link to the specific item, we can't say anything about the quality, ect... but I guess for $1 you don't have much to loose. So long as you're sure the drive you have is an older IDE drive (as most drive for the past few years have been SATA). I guess that may be why they're selling so cheap as IDE drives are pretty rare in notebooks anymore.

  • Has anyone had experience with the new moire slider under the adjustment brush in LR4?

    There's a new moire removal tool under the adjustment brush in LR4. In the near future I expect to have photos that contain moire patterns. Has anyone used this tool yet? I'd like to get an inkling as to how effective it is.

    There is an example of moiré on the Nikon Imaging site for the D800E.
    http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d800/features01.htm
    I was able to reduce the moiré significantly, but not eliminate it with the Lightroom 4 adjustment brush. I haven't found any software solutions that can completely repair moiré. The Lightroom 4 feature seems about as good as any I've tried.

  • HT4972 Has anyone had issues with failure of the music player to launch after updating to OS5? My Gen 3 will no longer play music!

    Has anyone had issues with failure of the music player to launch after updating to OS5? My Gen 3 will no longer play music!

    I think a few have.
    Try the standard fixes:
    - Reset. Nothing is lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory defaults/new iPod.

  • HT1535 has anyone had issues with syncing music? i can no longer sync any of my music that was already on my itunes to my phone for some reason???

    has anyone had issues with syncing music? i can no longer sync any of my music that was already on my itunes to my phone for some reason???

    Since this first message, the "Other" space has increased exponentially.  The first time, after the "restore", it increased to over 9 GB.  Later, I tried a minor restore again, and now it's over 10 GB.  I've seen someone suggest that text messages are to blame.  If my text messages are suddenly taking up 4 GB of space, I think we've got bigger problems.

  • HT1349 Has anyone had issues with the iphone 4s and facebook.

    Has anyone had issues with the iphone 4s and facebook. I have downloaded the app and sometimes it will let me log in and then it will log me out and not let me back in. I have deleted and downloaded it several times and nothing is working. HELP!

    @razmee: rather unhelpful.
    @tata - we're having the same trouble, and the only solution we've found doesn't fix it.
    1) uninstall
    2) login on PC/MAC and change password
    3) reboot iphone
    4) install facebook app, reboot again
    5) login from iphone. 
    No joy.
    Safari works, but not for the apps.
    Of course, it's Facebook that has to fix this.

    Answering this question will not help your issue.  You need to take the iPhone to the nearest Genius Bar.  That's the only solution that will reach an affirmative result.

  • Has anyone had issues with Administration\Data Import/Export\Data Import???

    Has anyone had issues with Administration\Data Import/Export\Data Import???
    I have a client who has recently upgraded from V2007 to V8.81. They were succesfuly  using this standard function to import supplier prices to their master price list, but now it has failed?
    I have looked at the file they are importing and it appears to be fine.
    On closer inspection, it did contain approx 46,000 entries, so I took the first 1,000 and created a test file, which imported fine.
    The only issue I found was Speed, with the test file of 1,000 records taking about 30 Mins to import. This appeared to get slower and slower the further through the file it got!
    Based on this, I have estimated that the whole file would takle about 13 hours to import. The client say that when they used to run it on version 2007 it was far quicker?
    In practice, it does appear to run, but the speed is the issue. Having said this, I set the whole file to run last night (over night)and this morning it had appeared to hang after about 2,307 rows, with nothing else being updated.
    Has anyone any ideas or is aware of performance issues like this?
    Thanks,
    Ian

    Always an option, but would you give your clients access to this tool?
    Not sure really.
    I have uploaded a copy of their database onto my test system and run the same routine. Its equally as SLOW
    I can't gauage if its an issue with 8.81 that 2007 didn't have, as I only have the client's word on it, however I have no reason to disbelieve them.
    Kind regards,
    Ian

  • Has anyone had issues with their itunes not coming up?

    Has anyone had issues with their itunes not coming up?  I keep getting error message 13014.  I just bought a new classic ipod and am not sure if this is the problem.

    Hi
    Your new iPod has certain operating system requirements. Does your iMac meet those requirements?

  • Has anyone had issues with Microsoft Word or Excel requiring initial set-up again after a software update?

    Has anyone had issues with Microsoft Word or Excel requiring a set-up after software udates?  I do not have product key, so unable to set up again.

    This laptop has original Microsoft word & excel provided by Mac when purchased and is legal copy.
    Do I understand you bought a Mac and it came with Microsoft Office?    I could be wrong, but I wasn't aware that was an option.  Or am I not parsing that sentence correctly and you bought a Mac and bought a legal copy of Office to install on it?  In which case, never mind.

    Has anyone had problems with the latest Lexmark printer driver update? My Lexmark printers won't work with the latest driver update. If I reinstall an older version of the drivers, they work.

    Mine crashed once with new update, but working fine.
    I had to delete old printer, restart iMac, and then reinstall
    new drivers to get it to work. Would not complete without
    the restart after deleting non-working printer. No problems
