I just added two external firewire drives and they keep going to sleep.  I did not have this problem when USB.  I have turned off "put disks to sleep" in power preference.

I just added two external firewire drives and they keep going to sleep.  I did not have this problem when using USB external drives.  I have turned off "put disks to sleep" in power preference.

It is not clear if these are the same drives, just connected
differently, or different drives?
One thing that may be happening is that the drives firmware
itself is putting it to sleep when inactive.  Many drives on
the market have ths feature and it is turned on by default
and require a drive utility from the manufacturer to disable it.

    When I'm travelling I import photos onto my laptop's external hard drive and work on the images using virtual copies to develop them. When I get home, I want to import all the photos together with the developed virtual copies fromt the laptop's external HD into LR5 on my PC desktop. But if I use the import button in LR I only get the original photo, not the developed copies. What am I doing wrong?

    Since your current editing workflow is based around Virtual Copies there are no actual files containing the edit data. Therefore, you'll need to use the 'Import from another catalog' option ( see File menu).

  • Does anyone know why when printing from light room to pdf the program just closes on me? I've talked to tech support and they are going to get back to me tomorrow but I am desperate I have tuns of homework to finish !!

    No, but if you really mean that the way you said it, I don't know that Print is the best way to this. If you haven't already, after selecting the images you want to get printed, try clicking the Export button in Book or Library module and then selecting format .PDF. Once you export the file to .PDF, try opening it where you saved it and printing from there, not in Lightroom but in Adobe Reader. If that doesn't help, here are a couple of videos that might--follow their instructions carefully with no shortcuts:
    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4's Export to PDF Using the New Book Module - YouTube
    Lightroom 5 - Exporting Images | Getting Started with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 | Adobe TV
    If Lightroom keeps closing even when you try all this, you may need to reinstall Lightroom because your copy may be screwed up.

  • How do I stop Firefox from creating untitled web pages when I try to send email from a web page. The only way I have found is to turn the computor off and then reboot. I don't have this problem when using Internet Explorer

    Every time I click on a web site that has an email option the browser starts making untitled web pages and never stops unless I turn the computer off. It is very frustrating to not be able to use an email option when offered by a web site. The only way I can send email messages on the Firefox browser is to go into my hotmail acct. and copy and paste the addresses. I don't have this problem when I use the Internet Explorer browser.

  • Just added an external G-DRIVE

    Hi everyone,
    I just added an external 250 gig G-DRIVE to my MacPro tower. Am I supposed to"journal" this drive? I noticed that the internal drive is journaled while the external drive is not.
    I simply turned off my computer, plugged in the external drive, turned on the drive then turned on the computer and all seems to be well. The computer recognizes the external drive.
    I did see a RAID option on disc utility. Is that something I need to do?
    I use my computer for video editing.
    I'm new to this and apologize in advance if this question has been asked before.
    doug

    Mac OS X journals drives by default. It is suggedted to you enable journaling on the external drive.

  • Copied Files to External Hard drive and they are not available now..  where

    Please help!
    I have a G4 that had an original 20GB Hard drive. I installed a 60GB Hard drive. I was running OS 9 on the 20GB drive and OS X on the 60GB. I was working with a lot of video and pics and filled the 60GB drive, so I added an external 250GB drive.
    Recently, I received messages that my start up disk was almost full (60GB), so I moved my users file from the 60GB drive to the 250GB. The file size was 47ish GB and so I thought I would create some room. The move took approx. 40 mins as I copied the folder over to the 250GB drive. Once it was there I verified it only by it's size and once I saw that it existed on the 250, I trashed the users file from the 60GB drive and then emptied trash.
    I lost the icons and items on my desktop, however, desktop background remained the same. I cannot access anything that I opriginally had. The users file still has the same folders that it did, but they are now relatively empty. Each folder is approx. 50 kB in size but the users folder still exists as 47GB.
    If what I have explained makes sense, can someone help me to either copy back my users folder (I tried that, but the 60GB drive still says it is full) or suggest something else (And not that I am a fool, as I figured that one out already!)
    I ran Diskwarrior last night to verify the pathways etc. and everything is in order... I am lost... Please help if you can!
    Thanks!
    David

    Dear David,
    Did you move the entire "yourhomedirectory" name over to the 250 gig HD and then did you delete the entire "yourhomedirectory" file?
    From what I have read, OS X will always be looking for Desktop, Documents, Library, Movies, Music, etc under "yourhomedirectory". There is some way to tell the system that they are located somewhere else but it is kind of hard.
    When you mount the 250 gig drive do you see any of the files that you you moved over?
    What do you see when you log into the OS X volume. Are there any files for you to see.
    Not really sure what you did but let's see if we can get you fixed.

  • HT202663 Tonight I am having problems keeping my wifi in use when I go into an app.  I go in an sign back in to my wifi and it stops again when I go into an app.  Have not had this problem until today.  Have had my iPad since October.  Please help.

    I have never had this problem before.  I have moved closer to the router and it still does it.

    Some things to try first:
    1. Turn Off your iPad. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your iPad. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.
    2. Go to Settings>Wi-Fi and turn Off. Then while at Settings>Wi-Fi, turn back On and chose a Network.
    3. Change the channel on your wireless router (Auto or Channel 6 is best). Instructions at http://macintoshhowto.com/advanced/how-to-get-a-good-range-on-your-wireless-netw ork.html
    4. Go into your router security settings and change from WEP to WPA with AES.
    5.  Renew IP Address: (especially if you are drooping internet connection)
        •    Launch Settings app
        •    Tap on Wi-Fi
        •    Tap on the blue arrow of the Wi-Fi network that you connect to from the list
        •    In the window that opens, tap on the Renew Lease button

    Note - When troubleshooting wifi connection problems, don't hold your iPad by hand. There have been a few reports that holding the iPad by hand, seems to attenuate the wifi signal.
    Some Wi-Fi losses may stem from a problematic interaction between Wi-Fi and cellular data connections. Numerous users have found that turning off Cellular Data in Settings gets their Wi-Fi working again.
    You may have many apps open which can possibly cause the slowdown and possibly the loss of wifi. In iOS 4-6 double tap your Home button & at the bottom of the screen you will see the icons of all open apps. Close those you are not using by pressing on an icon until all icons wiggle - then tap the minus sign. For iOS 7 users, there’s an easy way to see which apps are open in order to close them. By double-tapping the home button on your iPhone or iPad, the new multitasking feature in iOS 7 shows full page previews of all your open apps. Simply scroll horizontally to see all your apps, and close the apps with a simple flick towards the top of the screen.

  • Connecting two external Firewire HDs and work with them

    I have two external HDs. One is a 1TB MyBook, permantently connected to my Mac via Firewire (my entire iTunes and iPhoto libraries are in there), and a smaller 120GB portable SmartDisk, that I use to backup my startup disk periodically using SuperDuper.
    Both the 'Book and the SmartDisk have two Firewire ports each. Everytime I need to backup my Mac, I disconnect the 'Book and plug the SmartDisk to the only FW port of my MacMini.
    Am I doing extra work by doing this? Can I connect both HD with each other and make this process easier? I would like to connect the SmartDisk to the 'Book and clone my Mac to it just like that, then disconnect it and keep it safe as usual. I'm not familiar with the "daisy-chaining", nor the FireWire issues, pardon me if this is too basic to ask.
    Thanks in advance,
    JJ

    You should be able to "daisy-chain" the drives. That's exactly what the extra ports are for. Unlike USB, FW was designed for this serial looping.
    However, I recall some time ago that occasionally the second drive in the chain was not recognized.
    Try it. You certainly cannot damage anything since that's how FW works.

  • Can I connect TWO external firewire drives?

    Hi - i have a G5 Powermac 2.3 DP
    I have a Lacie External Hard Drive connected already to the firewire 800 port, but I want to know if I can have another connected to the Firewire 400 port at the same time (and actually transfer data betweeen the 2 external drives).
    ie. are the firewire 800 and 400 ports independent?
    Thx

    No problem on connecting a second and even a third FW drive. I have 1 FW drive connected to the FW 800 port and two others daisy chained to the FW 400 port in the rear of my G5, still leaving the port on the front open. They all work fine and I can easily copy files from one to another. Only two issues: some people claim that if you have a FW 400 device and a FW 800 device connected, then everything works at 400 speed. I don't know if that is true and may some other poster will confirm. The only other "problem" is that my Canon Optura Camcorder will not interface via FW if anyother FW device is connected. Apparently this is true for Canon cameras and maybe some other cameras as well. But HD drives are not a problem.

  • Two External Hard Drives and Time Machine

    Hi All
    Does anyone out there know if it is possible to use Time Machine to backup information from one external hard drive to a second external hard drive? I dont want to store this particular information on my internal hard drive (partly because the HD is not big enough. If Time Machine cannot do this, does anyone know of another way?
    Thanks
    Regards
    Sonia

    Hi Sonia
    Yes you can do that. In Timemachine you just tell it to use the one external HD for Timemachine. In the same panel you can tell timemachine which drives to backup, and here you just specify the other external HD and leaves out your internal HD.

Maybe you are looking for
