I have an SD card that my husband uses for a trail camera. The camera does not have a delete function for the pics, so I put the SD card in our MAC and we can view the pics but when I go to delete them it says that the files cant be deleted. What can i do

My husband has an SD card he  uses for his trail camera. We put it in our mac book pro and can look at the pictures but when I go to move them to the trash it tells me that the files can't be moved to the trash because they cant be deleted. I have Nikon camera software on my mac and it pics up and asks if you want to import the pics and if you want them deleted from the devices afterwards. I tried that but I get a message afterwards that says that some files were not able to be deleted. When I go to check, none of them were deleted. How can I clean of the SD Card? I do have a camera I could stick it in, it would just be nice to know how to do it from my mac. Also, the files are jpg. if that matters.

AFAIK cameras offer their own built-in format utility for inserted SD cards.  You should use that.  Otherwise, refer to the manual that came with your camera to determine precisely how your SD cards need to be formatted to work properly.  Personally, I'd suggest Partition Scheme: MBR, and Filesystem: FAT32.
Try to limit the number of formats you perform on the SD cards, though, as you're reducing their lifespan.  I believe formatting causes re-writes to a portion of the SD card that has fewer read/write cycles than the rest of the card as a whole.

  • I have downloaded two movies to my iTunes account but when I go to watch them it says that I'm not authorized

    I Have downloaded 2 movies to my iPad on an iTunes account but when I go to watch it, it says I'm not authorized.

    I have read about some cases where movies rented or purchased on one device will not play on another device. Seems to happen mostly with Apple TV and iPads. One way some have worked around it is to cable from the downloaded device to a TV or Apple TV.
    Were these movies purchased or rented from iTunes? Not sure, but that almost sounds like a iTunes Password problem. Maybe try checking that you're signed in as the same account that purchased the movies.

  • HT1338 i purchased dvd studio pro and im trying to install it but when i go to click continue it gives me this  "you cant open the application gestalt tool becasue powerpc applications are no longer supported" what does that mean and how can i fix this ?

    i purchased dvd studio pro and im trying to install it but when i go to click continue it gives me this  "you cant open the application gestalt tool becasue powerpc applications are no longer supported" what does that mean and how can i fix this ?

    I note this information from Wikipedia: "DVD Studio Pro was a high-end software tool published by Apple Inc. to allow users to create DVD masters to be sent out for replication at production houses. Its tight integration with other Apple applications allows users to take Final Cut Pro and Motion projects and render them into the DVD format without encoding to intermediary formats. This streamlines the production workflow and reduces overhead."
    If that is your intent, finding a substitute program that will run on your Mac may not be as efficient.  Others can advise you on alternatives, or you can post a new thread specifically with that question.
    BTW: what Mac and what version of OS X?
    If it is important to you to continue to use DVD Studio Pro, consider the option of installing Snow Leopard (with Rosetta) into Parallels on your Mac:

  • External video projector - How can I hook up my Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter onto my new MacBookAir if the machine does not have a mini port (but only 2 USBs and 1 Thunderbolt)?

    Hi
    How can I hook up my DVI Adapter onto my new MacBookAir if the machine does not have a mini port (but only 2 USBs and 1 Thunderbolt)?
    Is there a DVI adaptor already for Thunderbolt?
    Thanks,
    JFR

    The Mini Display port and Thunderbolt port use compatible connector bodies. Your current Mini Display to DVI or VGA adapter will still work as before on the newer Thunderbolt capable machines.

    What version of iTunes do you have installed? If you are trying to update to iOS 6 you need iTunes 10.7 or later.

    please help. just got my jabra halo, worked fine with my iphone4 but can't use it on my macbook pro. it always prompts " the devise does not have the necessary service

    Found these instructions here:
    https://discussions.apple.com/message/15388885#15388885
    I found an answer that worked for me. I am using an iMac.
    (1) Sign out of the iTunes store
    (2) Open a NEW account with a new Apple ID
    (3) Go through the sign up process and then go to the ACCOUNT INFORMATION page
    (4) Go to RECOMENDATIONS & PING POSTING
    (5) Turn on Genius there
    Once the Genius updates, you can sign out and then sign in under your original Apple ID or the e-mail address you use for the iTunes store. All my store credit was there and now Genius worked.
    Rather odd but I actually like the Genius at times except when it can't deal with some of my lesser known bands that I listen to.
    Worked for me.

    Yes, if the movie has been downloaded to the iPad, then you can watch it without Wi-Fi.

  • I need to free up storage on my iPhone 4s to do an update.  I have turned off my photo stream, but when I go into Usage Settings, it says that photo stream is using 3.7gb of space.  How do I get rid of this?

    i need to free up storage on my iPhone 4s to do an update.  I have turned off my photo stream, but when I go into Usage Settings, it says that photo stream is using 3.7gb of space.  How do I get rid of this?

    iCloud is not designed to "store" photos (as in long term storage).  iCloud can be used to sync photos from one device to another (photo stream) and to store a backup of the camera roll.  But that's pretty much it.
    Camera roll is the group of all photos taken by the device (but not other photos synced to the device from another source).  Your extra storage on icloud will do you no good.  The recommended way of storing photos on a device is to sync them to a computer.
    So, your questions..
    1) You don't/can't
    2) No, because of 1.
    3) On a computer, deleting large groups of photos is relatively painless.  not so on a device.
    4) You can't access photos on iCloud because they can't be store in icloud.  You can't view/access photos in a backup on icloud unless you restore a backup to a device.
    Read this...  import photos to your computer...

  • I would like to connect my Ipad 2 wirelessly via 3G with a wireless rooter. The Ipad does not have a slot for a card, so it will have to connect to the rooter via bluetooth. Is this possible?

    I would like to connect my Ipad 2 wirelessly via 3G with a wireless rooter. The Ipad does not have a slot for a card, so it will have to connect to the rooter via bluetooth. Is this possible? If so, where can I buy such a rooter? Many thanks! Ina

    I'm not really understanding what you want. You mention all 3 types of connections: wireless, 3G and bluetooth, but I'm not clear on what you want to do. What the router is supposed to do, and why do you think it would need to connect via bluetooth?
    I'm thinking you want to buy a Mifi type device that will allow you to connect to a cellular network and then connect the iPad to that device via the Wifi network the Mifi produces.
    Is that so?

    Hi Pat,
    Thank you so much for your reply.  Yes I am the Administrator. Nothing worked until I went into my security and disabled my firewall and my security tab.  Then Flash Player 12 downloaded without a hitch.  Then I quickly re-enabled both my firewall and security settings.   I have no idea why it worked but it did.
    Thank you so much for your assistance!!
    I wish you a great week!

  • MY computer sayd that it is connected to the internet in the upper right hand corner, but when I try to open safari, it says that it is unable to connect. how can i fix that?

    I just got this computer today, everything works fine but I cannot connect to the internet. The Wi-Fi thing in the top right corner tells me that im connected, but when I try to open Safari, it says that I am not able to connect to the internet. I have done everything the computer has told me, and i still can't connect. I need help please!!

    The problem lies between your router and the ISP.
    Pull the modem or router/modem power plug, wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in to establish a new connection to the ISP.
    Try another website, another device and see if that works if not then call your ISP for assistance and/or reconfigure the router.
    If your router isn't secure and you had bad leechers the ISP might have suspended the access or perhaps met the monthly data cap rate.

  • Can you sell an adobe muse website if the client does not have a license?

    Can you sell an adobe muse website if the client does not have a license?

    Hello,
    You can sell the website to the client, but if you give out the .muse file to the client, then they would need a muse license to be able to open that file in Muse and make edits to the website (in case they do need to make edits). If you simply give out the exported files, then they can upload the site to their host, but they would not be able to make too many edits to the website. The In Browser Editor is a feature that is available if the site is hosted with Adobe Business Catalyst, where they would be able to make certain basic edit/changes to the site.
    Cheers
