  • How do I copy my old xl files from my XP machine to operate on xl for Mac on my new iMac.  When I copy them onto a stick and transfer them it automatically makes them xls files which are then corrupted when I try to open them in xl for mac

    Sorry, yes this is Microsoft Excel.  The Microsoft XP has Excel files denoted as xl, the later versions of Microsoft Excel are denoted as xls files.  The later verions of Microsoft Excel open the xl files OK, does Excel for Mac not able to do this?

    I have an old shuffle that holds all my favourite songs. How do I transfer these to my iPhone. My original iTunes playlists no longer exist

    Basically, no, but as long as all the music is in the same iTunes library and it doesn't contain protected content from more than five Apple IDs, you don't need to. If desired, click here and ask the iTunes Store staff for assistance.

    My iPod Classic is synced with an old iTunes account.  How can I transfer this music to my new iTunes account?

    If you purchased all of the songs through itunes store, please follow these steps:
    1. Open up Itunes and Click on Itunes Store
    2. Once you're in the Itunes Store look to right side of the screen and you should see the word "purchased". Click purchased and you'll be sent to a purchase screen.
    3. Click on "All Songs" and then it will show all the songs you've downloaded. From there you just hit the button that looks like a cloud with an arrow on it, and it will download all the songs all over again.

  • I have an older Ipod shuffle with many songs loaded on it. How can I transfer these songs to a new computer since the old computer is no longer available

    I have an oder Ipod shuffle with many songs loaded on it. How can I transfer ths songs to a new computer since the old computer is no longer available?

    I had the same problem with my iPad, i couldn't get the newer version of itunes because the computer was too old and my iPad couldnt sync with the old itunes. I got a PC from school a few months later so that solved the problem for me. Unfortunately i don't think there would be a program to put your music on your iPod, iTunes should be the only way to transfer files to Apple devices. What operating system are you running and what version of it is it?

  • Macbook Air's hard drive full with files under the 'other' category - how do I find these files and delete them?

    A few days ago a pop up message came up on my screen saying that my hard drive was full, and that I could not install valuable updates because I did not have enough space on my computer. I checked my computer's storage space only to find that 18.22GB of my hard drive was filled with files/programs under the 'other' category. I have deleted all my downloads, most of my pictures and have done virus scans and I still don't have enough room. How do I find out what is in this 'other' category so that I can delete these files (which seem to be hidden) or whatever they may be?

  • I can not play a large percentage of my music due to "could not be used because original file could not be found"  How do I locate these files again? Thanks

    So I have not been able to play a large number of my songs duw to a message that reads "could not be used because original file could not be found".  Does anyone know how to locate these files so that itunes will play them again?  Thanks

    by following this document here:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93313
    and then doing something else at the end.
    I followed the instructions from 1-6:
    Then rather than importing the XML file I open iTunes, selected "Add to Library" from the File menu then navigated to the itunes library on my external disc then let it do its work.
    I guess something got fragged when I changed computer but it's all ok now.
    This worked on a Mac I don't know about Windows

  • I am trying to upload my PDF file from my IBooks but its only giving me the option to upload from my pictures/gallery. How do I get it to where I can upload PDF files from my iBook or how do I transfer my PDF files to my pics?

    I'm having the same issue. I saved a PDF from an email into iBooks. I'm on apple applying for a job but the only option the upload button has is from the Photos file. How ironic right? Luckily I'm in Logistics and not an IT specialist applying for this job! Lol. Does anyone know the fix?

  • How do I transfer my data to my new IMAC from my old mac's hard drive?

    When switching to my new IMac, I transferred my data, but the data that it transfered from was my old Mac's original hard drive. How do I transfer the data from my 2nd hard drive which has all my up-to-date info?

    I believe that you are running into the Master/Slave issue when there are two or more HDs on the same channel.
    As per the Knowledge Base article on How to use FireWire target disk mode
    Tip: FireWire Target Disk Mode works on internal ATA drives only. Target Disk Mode only connects to the master ATA drive on the Ultra ATA bus. It will not connect to Slave ATA, ATAPI or SCSI drives.
    When you disconnected the original drive, which was the Master, and changed the new drive's position on the cable, which had been the Slave, you made it the Master, which then gave you access to it.
    You may be more successful if you use Migration Assistant if you erase and reinstall OS X. It is located on your Intel in Apps/Utilities. Be sure to use Kappy's post linked above for an intelligent move of the things that are safe to move from PPC to Intel Macs.

  • I have filled a backup drive with 1 terabyte and my computer is running very slow. what files are safe to delete to free up space?

    what files are safe to put in the trash without messing up programs?

    It would be wise to move your large libraries like your iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom etc, iTunes, iMoves to an external HD. That will free up HD space. After you have relocated those libraries move the copies on the internal HD to the trash and empty the trash. This is the smartest and safest method. Apple explains how to move these libraries in:
    iPhoto: How to move the Library to an EHD
    iTunes: How to move the library to an EHD
    iMovie: How to move the Library to an EHD

  • Is a Time Machine back up sufficient if I have a USB pen drive with Mavericks from which to reinstall the OS?

    I have used SuperDuper to make bootable back ups in the past, but if Time Machine backs up files on the fly it seems unnecessary to make a full back up from time to time. The bootable backup is easier to restore, but takes up another disk. The chances of both the computer's and the Time Machine disks failing simultaneously are, one hopes, fairly remote.
    Any advice or comments appreciated.

    Yes you can always boot in recovery mode and restore from the TM backup. If your data is important to you then you should have a secondary backup on another drive for safety. Drives are cheap and you just never know what's could happen. Lightning strikes in a home can fry more than one piece of equipment at one time. If you can't afford a large enough drive for a secondary backup, then a smaller drive could be used to backup just your data files using SuperDuper.
    I only have one backup drive myself. But my backup drive is partitioned with TM on one and a SuperDuper clone on the other partition. Even a TM backup can become corrupt or fail. I also just like to have a bootable SD clone in case my internal fails. I can boot from the external SUperDuper clone partition and continue on until my internal could be replaced.

  • HT1918 I still have balance in my account but I changed my country. How will I transfer my balance to my new country settings?

    I moved from the US. I cancelled all my credit and debit cards in the US banks. But I had a gift from apple for $100 and I redeemed it. However, as I closed my accounts, I am no longer able to purchase anything from app store. Neither I can change my country because I haven't spent the balance. Please help me...

    You will either need to spend the balance or try contacting iTunes support and ask if they can remove the balance from your account (you can't transfer a balance when changing countries) : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page.

  • I have an old email and I have a gift card balance How can I transfer this info to my new email and purchase something on it ?

    I have an old email account that has a gift card balance  How can I transfer this balance to my new email in order to purchase some tunes?

    If you are talking about an iTunes or Apple ID account, you cannot transfer from one account to another.
    If you have problems with it try contacting the store support staff at http://www.apple.com/emea/support/itunes/contact.html

    Re Time Machine
    I have an external  hard drive with files I backed up manually over the past 2 years 1TB of memory.
    I am finally taking the leap to use Time machine to back everything.
    will I have to reformat that drive, thus wiping my previous back ups?
    can I split it the drive in two partitions?
    Also
    as I have two separate Macbook Pro's- one older than the other.
    OSX 10.68
    the other is
    OSX 10.75
    can I back them up separately?
    or even synch and merge files and folders etc? between the two?

    You CAN use a drive with files already on it to store Time Machine backups. But long term, that is not recommended. You do not need to reformat or re-partition the drive to do this. Once Time Machine Backups are established, you could remove the old files.
    But do not delete Time Machines files with the Finder -- that can cause it to lose its place and lose everything.
    With the cost of backup drives under US$100, it might be a better idea in the long run to get another drive. Best results from Time Machine is a drive about 3 times larger than the drive(s) you are backing up.

  • I have a seagate 1tb hard drive and a 16gb memory stick, how do i transfer avi files from one to another as the click drag and drop wont work, please help?

    i have a seagate 1tb hard drive and a 16gb memory stick, how do i transfer avi files from one to another as the click drag and drop wont work, please help?

    Greetings,
    What happens when you drag it?
    Make sure the drive you are moving the files to has enough available space to receive the file:
    Click on the movie file and go to File >  Get Info and note the "size"
    Check the drive to which you are moving the file to make sure it has enough available space: https://idisk.me.com/madisonfile-Public/web/finder-drive-available-space-and-for mat.html
    Also note the format of the drive you are copying too.  If it is not Mac OS Extended or FAT (not recommended unless you are taking it to a windows computer) then that may be the issue.
    Hope that helps.
