    I have 10.6.8 and know my SN but have no idea how to determine date of manufacture.

    Open  > About this Mac > More Info, and look at Model Identifier. The Mid 2007 iMac model identifier is iMac7,1

    What iMac do you Have?
    Go to About this Mac from the Apple icon top left of your finder menu window and it will tell you.

  • How do you know the best iMac display size

    how do you know the best iMac display size
    Only on them fits in the screen window and that makes the font so tiny.  The others are too wide or too tall.  I usually view at 150 - 200% for vision issues.

    You say it's better to do the Media Browser?  I'm fairly new to movie, dvd and garage band.  How would I go about using the Media Browser instead of straight to iDVD?
    Select Your project - go up to Share - Share to Media Browser and as Large (Not HD)
    In iDVD select a nice theme - click on Media button - click on Movie - Select Your movie.
    NOW - Save as a DiskImage - and test this before burning DVDs - if this Plays OK then either burn the Image by using Disk Util tool (and set down burn-speed to x4) - or burn via iDVD (will take more time)
    I want to keep as much quality as I can.
    Then don't use iMovie'08 or 09 or 11 - as they all discard every second line resulting in less quality on the DVD. I use iMovie HD6 or FinalCut any version.
    Also...I tried to split my project in iMovie...but couldn't find a way.  I wound up just making a copy and then deleting out a handful of scenes from the copy...I still have the original at 4:12hrs.  Is there a way in iMovie to split a project? 
    I would make a copy and cut away a bit from the end - calling this Part 1 and from start of the other copy Part 2.
    OR - there are other programs that can squees in more to a DVD e.g. Roxio Toast™ - BUT this has two cons.
    • It costs - to me it was well spent mony as it can so much more e.g. back engineer a DVD to an editable form
    • Squeesing in more on a DVD - costs in QUALITY - and as You want as much as it can be - then 90 minuts portions encoded with Pro-Quality encoding and full quality interlasced material from a video-editor that delivers this is the way to get 100% of what DVDs can do.
    DVD is as standard only SD-Video - HD not possibly. Then You need Blu-Ray. (also Roxio Toast™)

  • I have a rather old iMac 20" (mid 2007) and I want to upgrade the Hard drive. How do I change it? How do I transfer all my applications? May I just copy the old hd into the new one? Thanks.

    I have a rather old iMac 20" (mid 2007) and I want to upgrade the Hard drive. How do I change it? How do I transfer all my applications? May I just copy the old hd into the new one? Thanks.

    There are many online tutorials on how to change out the HD on a mid 2007 iMac. One of the originals is from 2007 and is Upgrade your iMac 20" or iMac 24" aluminum (mid 2007) to 1TB Hard Drive and 4 GB RAM - DIY Guide. As far as migrating your system Apple helps out with that in Setup Assistant which automatically starts when you turn on a new Mac for the first time. After you have installed the new HD you will have to format the new HD to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and then you will have to install OS X. The first time you turn it on Setup Assistant will start. Follow the directions and you will be fine. In order to restore your information you will need to backup what is on the current internal HD first. I'd recommend using Time Machine (Assuming you are using Leopard or later) AND also creating a bootable clone using either SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner.
    Please complete your profile so at the very least we know what version of OS X your machine has installed.

  • Replacing imac 24" mid 2007 hard drive

    hello everyone
    recently my imac 24" mid 2007 320gb 2gb ram mac hard drive completely failed i have tried everything it starts up sometimes then freezes other times it doesnt even recognise the hard drive so i am currently using it through a boot on a external hard drive my question is if i were to replace the hard drive myself (using youtube videos i am quite tech minded so looks fairly easy) would i have to get a certain type of hard drive i know its 3.5" but is there a simple to the size 1tb/2tb and als oi have read the transfer rate may need to be tapered down is that true and if so how would i go about doing it ?
    any help will be appreciated thanks very much

    http://img.tomshardware.com/us/2003/05/01/sata_hard_drive_with_a_kick/raptor-3.j pg shows an image of a hard drive with a jumper.   Reading from right to left, the first four prongs are power prongs.  Next you'll see a white plastic item covering two pins (that's known as a jumper).  On some SATA drives, they cover the prongs circled in red on this image:
    http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b13/CRazY_GAmEr_07/SATA2.jpg
    Either style of pinout on SATA drive, if you don't have the jumpers covered by the right plastic item, it will not work backward compatible, or will confuse the computer as to what speed it actually is.  This is why you need to ask Western Digital if any jumper needs to be on the jumper pins of the drive in question to work as the master drive on your computer given your computer's data bandwidth for hard drives.

  • I have an iMac. , mid 2007.  Frequently, when I take an action, the little color wheel starts spinning and goes on for quite awhile.  Save a file, close a file, open a file, open a window, it's all random.  Somtimes it stalls, sometimes it doesn't.  Why?

    I have an iMac. , mid 2007.  Frequently, when I take an action, the little color wheel starts spinning and goes on for quite awhile.  Save a file, close a file, open a file, open a window, it's all random.  Somtimes it stalls, sometimes it doesn't.  Sometimes long, sometims short.  Why is this happening?

    Consider adding more memory. Be sure you have adequate free space on the hard drive - 15 GBs or 10% of the drive's capacity, whichever is greater. Do not run too many applications concurrently. Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQ on resolving the SBBOD.
    Do some maintenance:
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    Kappy's Personal Suggestions for OS X Maintenance
    For disk repairs use Disk Utility.  For situations DU cannot handle the best third-party utilities are: Disk Warrior;  DW only fixes problems with the disk directory, but most disk problems are caused by directory corruption; Disk Warrior 4.x is now Intel Mac compatible. Drive Genius provides additional tools not found in Disk Warrior.  Versions 1.5.1 and later are Intel Mac compatible.
    OS X performs certain maintenance functions that are scheduled to occur on a daily, weekly, or monthly period. The maintenance scripts run in the early AM only if the computer is turned on 24/7 (no sleep.) If this isn't the case, then an excellent solution is to download and install a shareware utility such as Macaroni, JAW PseudoAnacron, or Anacron that will automate the maintenance activity regardless of whether the computer is turned off or asleep.  Dependence upon third-party utilities to run the periodic maintenance scripts was significantly reduced since Tiger.  These utilities have limited or no functionality with Snow Leopard or Lion and should not be installed.
    OS X automatically defragments files less than 20 MBs in size, so unless you have a disk full of very large files there's little need for defragmenting the hard drive. As for virus protection there are few if any such animals affecting OS X. You can protect the computer easily using the freeware Open Source virus protection software ClamXAV. Personally I would avoid most commercial anti-virus software because of their potential for causing problems. For more about malware see Macintosh Virus Guide.
    I would also recommend downloading a utility such as TinkerTool System, OnyX 2.4.3, or Cocktail 5.1.1 that you can use for periodic maintenance such as removing old log files and archives, clearing caches, etc.
    For emergency repairs install the freeware utility Applejack.  If you cannot start up in OS X, you may be able to start in single-user mode from which you can run Applejack to do a whole set of repair and maintenance routines from the command line.  Note that AppleJack 1.5 is required for Leopard. AppleJack 1.6 is compatible with Snow Leopard. There is no confirmation that this version also works with Lion.
    When you install any new system software or updates be sure to repair the hard drive and permissions beforehand. I also recommend booting into safe mode before doing system software updates.
    Get an external Firewire drive at least equal in size to the internal hard drive and make (and maintain) a bootable clone/backup. You can make a bootable clone using the Restore option of Disk Utility. You can also make and maintain clones with good backup software. My personal recommendations are (order is not significant):
    Carbon Copy Cloner
    Data Backup
    Deja Vu
    SuperDuper!
    SyncTwoFolders
    Synk Pro
    Synk Standard
    Tri-Backup
    Visit The XLab FAQs and read the FAQs on maintenance, optimization, virus protection, and backup and restore.
    Additional suggestions will be found in Mac Maintenance Quick Assist.
    Referenced software can be found at CNet Downloads or MacUpdate.
    Be sure you have an adequate amount of RAM installed for the number of applications you run concurrently. Be sure you leave a minimum of 10% of the hard drive's capacity as free space.

    The Mid-2007 model didn't come out until June 2007, so you must have bought an earlier model. It won't run Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8.x), but it might run Lion (10.7.x) if you can get hold of a copy, depending on which earlier model it is.
    Lion requires at least a Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The first MacBook Pros came out in January 2006, but they had "Core Duo" processors (no "2"). The Core 2 Duo MacBook Pros came out in October 2006. You could have bought either in March 2007.

  • How well does OSX Yosemite run on a Mid 2007 iMac?

    I own a Mid 2007 iMac with 4GB 667Mhz DDR2 RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0Ghz processor and has ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT 128 MB graphics. I was considering upgrading from OSX Mavericks 10.9.4 to OSX Yosemite, but fear it may slow the Mac down. If anybody has upgraded their Mid 2007 iMac, does it slow the system down? Thank You.

    Hi JRos23. Thanks for sharing your experience.
    I also have a mid 2007 iMac (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) and I'm waiting on reviews like yours to evaluate if it is worth to take the leap and update. Last year I updated to Mavericks from Lion (skipped Mountain Lion) and it improved a lot on many fronts. However, it only felt smooth when I updated the RAM to 6GB. Apple specs tells us that this machine supports max 4Gb, though I found many people saying that it would support 1x2GB + 1x4Gb, and it does. I trully recommend it. If it helps anyone, I bought these: link (sorry, Spanish Amazon store).
    However, seeing that you're having a good enough experience until now I will definitely consider it as near future project, maybe with 10.10.1. Is it really an improvement or are there any daily usage setbacks?
    Cheers,
    JP

  • IMac 24" mid 2007 video card

    If my video card is bad will the mini dvi port work for an external monitor. My screens glows around the edges and flickers colors along edges also, no video at all. Thank you in advance.

    Kenand,
    Well you belong in the Intel forum but...
    If my video card is bad will the mini dvi port work for an external monitor.
    No
    My screens glows around the edges and flickers colors along edges also, no video at all.
    From the service manual:
    "1. Make sure all software updates have been applied to the computer. Refer to KBase article
    303903, Intel-based iMac: Installing available updates or to Apple Downloads “iMac Software Update 1.2 (Tiger) or iMac Software Update 1.3 (Leopard)."
    "Reset your computer’s PRAM (Parameter RAM):
    -- Shut down the computer.
    -- Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R.
    -- Turn on the computer.
    -- Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys simultaneously. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    -- Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for thesecond time.
    -- Release the keys"
    Reset the SMC:
    "To reset the SMC on an iMac (24-inch 2007)
    1. From the Apple menu, choose Shut Down (or if the computer is not responding, hold the
    power button for approximately ten seconds until it powers off).
    2. Unplug all cables from the computer, including the power cord.
    3. Wait at least 15 seconds. The SMC reset occurs automatically once the iMac has been
    unplugged from the AC power source for several seconds.
    4. Plug the power cord back in, making sure the power button is not being pressed at the time.
    5. Reconnect your keyboard and mouse to the computer.
    6. Press the power button on the back to start up your computer.
    Note: The iMac (24-inch) does not have a button on the main logic board for resetting the SMC,
    which eliminates the need to remove the computer’s cover to reset it (as required for some other
    models)."
    Report back. There are more tests but the front bezel and access door will have to come off.
