Hi
One Must NEVER move or alter any folders named
• iMovie Event's - or -
• iMovie Projects - or - alike
on DESKTOP/FINDER - Ever ! - ONLY Within the iMovie Program ! else all connections are broken and hard to impossibly to mend !
but rather do as described here under
Moving Event's and Project's
Connection - Either connect one Mac in Target mode to the other via FireWire. Or use an external hard disk !
(Target-Mode - Start one Mac e.g. laptop - BUT keep T-key down during full up-start - Now a FW-symbol is jumping around the screen and it will work as an external hard disk when connected to the other Mac)
A. The External Hard Disk - MUST BE - Mac OS Extended (hfs) formatted to work for Video. UNIX/DOS/FAT32/Mac OS Exchange works for most other things but not for Video whatever program is used (iMovie or FinalCut)
B. Should be a FireWire one as USB/USB2 performs badly to me and especially when filling up
C. Do never Move or Alter any folder named
• iMovie Event's - or -
• iMovie Project's
on DeskTop/Finder - as this will result in iMovie losing connections to them and repair can be anything from hard to impossibly
D. Moving and Copying must be done within iMovie application and Events to Events - and - Project's to Project's.
E. Moving Project's to Event's - Do not work for me - I have to export project as a QuickTime movie then Import this into Events.
Event's window can show two faces
Like this
or like this
from one hard disk Event - You can move it to the other hard disk
You can not (at least not me) move Event to Project or other way around only
Event to Event and Project to Project
Yours Bengt W

    I have recently started using iCloud on my laptop syncing it with my iPad.  When the syncing process starts it stops and gives me a message something like:  You do not have permission to sync this folder.  Then it wants me to unlock and gives other suggestions.  I have done them all and still cannot get the syncing process past this folder.  I is a folder in my documents.  Anyone have any solutions?

  • Active Directory domain Services – "You do not have permission to modify the group" followed by (Chinese or Japanese characters). Error message

    Folks:
    I am having an issue with a system, which is throwing a really odd error message. When the user tries to modify the AD group, they receive the following error message:
    “You do not have permission to modify the group”, which is then followed by what appears to be Chinese or Japanese characters. In addition, the characters
    randomly change, which makes me believe the characters are ASCII values or equivalent, not specific values for any coherent words provided by installed language packages.
    Has anyone seen this issue before? If so can you offer any advice?
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    This issue can be caused due to the permissions under Security tab are modified incorrectly.
    Please use delete control wizard to reassign the permissions or correct the permissions under Security tab manually.

  • I recently used an external hard drive to back up photos etc from my mac, I didn't do a full system back up. Since then a finder window titled 'client node' keeps popping up every time i hit the spacebar. Can anyone help me please stop this happening?

    Click on it, choose Get Info from the File menu, and check the format.
    If it's formatted as NTFS, reformat it as MS-DOS, exFAT, or Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as desired, or install software such as Paragon NTFS on the computer.
    If it's formatted as FAT32 or exFAT, use the Disk Utility's Repair Disk command on it; this may also happen for a flash drive which is about to fail.
    If it's formatted as Mac OS Extended, click Authenticate and provide your administrator password, or change the permissions on that specific folder in its Get Info window.

  • HT5252 I tried to change my metadata date and got this   Aperture was not able to adjust the date and time of the original file "01769_p_h13ajyrm4bm0944.jpg" because it is locked or you do not have permission to modify it.

    I tried to change the metadata date.  It changed the date on my photo, but when I checked the box that said "also change my original file", it gave me this error message.
    Unable to change original file.  Aperture was not able to adjust the date and time of the original file “01769_p_h13ajyrm4bm0944.jpg” because it is locked or you do not have permission to modify it.
    Wassup?

    What is your Aperture version? The older versions of Aperture 3 had a problem to apply Metadata changes to the original file.
    If you are using the current version Aperture 3.4.5, try to repair the permissions on your Aperture library, if you have not already done so:
    Launch Aperture with the key combination ⌥⌘ held down and select "Repair Permissions" from the First Aid PAnel, that will appear.
    If that does not help, post back with more information on your original files - are the referenced or managed? Where is your Aperture library located? Since when do you have this problem? And what did you do directly before noticed the problem for the first time?

  • Error/warning message "you don't have permission to modify files in this network location"

    Hi,
    We have a windows server 2008 running, and we access it via remote desktop. And there's this certain folder that all users access, and where we save important files. So, since this is where important files are stored, we wanted to disable deletion (and if
    possible moving) of the folder and everything under it. However, it's harder than i thought. Right now, we have the permissions "Delete" and "Delete files and subfolders" disabled already, BUT when we try to save a file to this folder,
    we got this warning/error message:
    "You don't have permission to modify files in this network location"
    The file is saved however, but there's no content. But when we try to cut/copy an existing file to this folder, it works.
    Does anyone know how a workaround on this issue. I've already spent days configuring the settings, and when one works, another issue comes up. This is really frustrating.
    Thank you.

    Hi,
    What are NTFS Permissions and Share Permissions of the shared folder? If you remove delete permissions, when someone tried to create a new folder, they couldn't rename it. Without Delete permission, we can open, modify a file and save with the same file name
    but cannot create a new file with a new name.
    For more detailed information, please refer to the thread below:
    NTFS Permissions Question - Allow creation but not deletion

  • Using time warner road runner. when I try to open up safari to home page I get error message that this version does not support the "community toolbar" can't proceed until closing the error message. sick of seeing it

    using time warner road runner. when I try to open up safari to home page I get error message that this version does not support the "community toolbar" can't proceed until closing the error message. sick of seeing it

    That toolbar/ct plugin seems to cause problems for all who install it!
    Close Safari, then locate and delete the following files and it should be gone:
    /Library/Application Support/Conduit
    /Library/InputManagers/CTLoader
    /Library/Receipts/ctloader.pkg
    /Library/Receipts/<Toolbar name>.pkg
    /Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/CT2285220.bundle
    /Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/Conduit
    where / is the root library on your Hard Disk.
    If you are running Snow Leopard you should also look here:
    Library/launchAgents/com.conduit.loader.agent.plist
    Library/Application support/conduit plugins
    Also, as mentioned by Gilli2000:
    Library/Receipts - If you read it, it has information in it at the bottom referring extensively to "CT" and "community toolbar".
    Maybe it is harmless, but trash those items anyway!
    Note: Safari does not support any third-party toolbars except those supplied as an extension to Safari via the Extension Gallery.

  • I need recommendations in purchasing an external hard drive, to back up everything in my computer. What brand and Size?

    I have a mid 2010 iMac, version 10.8.2, memory 4GB, 1TB sata disk.
    Apple sent me an e-mail last year stating that my imac maybe affected to a recall. They said I have to back up my computer before sending it in to them. So its a great excuse to purchase an external hard drive.
    But I am clueless. I would like to know what brand and size of memory is recommened for my imac and my needs. I will be mostly be backing up homevideos and alot of pictures, music, and some documents.
    If someone could also explain about time machine? I guess its a whole separte thing from your media. I also would like to keep it affordable. I just purchased an external hard drive from www.macmall.com Seagate Backup Plus 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Drive - Black (STBU1000100).
    But I don't know if that was a really great choice because for it to work with time machine I have to reformat certain things, and Im not sure if I would like to have that hassle.
    I also wanted to know whats the difference between usb 3.0 and firewire. I read some forums saying that if you are to transfer videos you need to use firewire, and some agreed disagreed. Is that true?
    Please help!?
    I definitely would like to know what brands of external hard drives are highly recommended and good at price. The one I purchased is it any good?
    Thank you!

  • I am trying to create a folder and save it onto my desktop but apparently I do not have permission to do so. How can I change this?

    I am trying to figure out how to create a folder on my desktop. For some reason, my desktop folder is no longer available and whenever I try to set one up, an alert states that I do not have permission to create one. I don't know what to do.

    I think you need to repair user directory permissions.  Follow these instructions:

  • When I try to open Itunes it says Library.itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have permission for this file.  How do I open?  What did my Kid do?

    My daughter added more storage to her cloud while i was at work.  When I came home and tried to get onto Itunes I got the message,'library.itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file.  I tried uninstalling Itunes on my computer and reinstalled.  After I tried to get in and the same message came up.  I can get onto Itunes on different computers except one.  Any Ideas?
