I used an external hard drive for my backups via Time Capsule.  I bought a new computer and I want to transfer all my old fonts over to the new one but when I go into the Font Library from the hard drive backup but my downloaded fonts aren't there?

I used an external hard drive to back up my computer using Time Capsule before I bought a new one.  I am slowly transferring information fromt he backup to my new computer and I want to transfer over my old font book.  When I go into the Font folder on the hard drive the only fonts that show up are the ones that came stock with the computer not any of the ones I have downloaded over time.  Could they be downloaded somewhere else?

The answer to that would probably be "Yes." If you don't remember where your fonts were stored, you may want to search your backups for any of the font files you know the names to. See where that takes you.
Ideally, Font Book and other font managers will temporarily store the fonts you "installed" into the System when you run the OS. When you shut down, etc. they are removed and reloaded on restart. The permanent place fonts reside is where you saved them when or after you downloaded them. I typically create a Resources folder on the root level of the computer and place a Fonts folder there. Then I install fonts from there, and they are available to all users on that iMac.
Perhaps if you did not have that kind of a strategy, perhaps many of them are still in your Downloads folder?

  • I just got a new computer and I want to transfer all the music from my ipod classic onto my computer.

    I just got a new computer and want my entire library on my ipod classic to be transferred to my computer.  I transferred as many files as I could from my old computer through my external hard drive, but many of my cds didn't transfer.  When I hook up my ipod, I see it's entire contents.  My question is, does a sync only work from the computer to the ipod, or if I sync my ipod will the songs on it be synced to my computer along with all the playlists?  My biggest worry is if I sync it, it will go back to the factory settings or I lose all my music.  I appreciate any help.

  • I have a new computer and I want to put all Firefox stuff, bookmarks, and T-Bird emails and address book on it, from my old PC. Can I do this myself? How, Please?

    Staples will do it for $130. Can I email the info to myself? Or do I have to use a memory card? What do you suggest? Thanks. Sandy

    Assuming you can still use your old system. Do it yourself and learn. As long as you know how to use XCOPY comes with your systems and can run .bat files (and can edit and save your .bat files before running them). Since you have both systems you will be able to test your backups to see what you missed. Only copy your user data and configurations, wherever you have all of those folders. Install all software. Anything you miss you can still get from the old system and fix your backup .bat to to better when you use it again.
    A portable external USB drive of 500GB to 2TB might be purchased for between $50 and $125 now or definitely on a Black Friday sale. Flash drives you probably have several between 4GB and 16GB fine for touch up work. Even for small amounts of data too much to email yourself.
    You will get "Windows 7 Premium" on your new system and the current Firefox is 7,0.1 and Nov 8 + a day will probably update to Firefox 8.0 -- http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/asa/archives/2011/08/every_six_weeks.html

    Keep the .bat files you are using on the external device and a copy on the production volume in a folder designated as a copy for the backup files fro the external device. I use both external 1TB HD and several USB drives when I did it almost two years ago.
    This is an example of an incremental backup to a 500GB external drive, it does not synchronize the backup only updates the backup but does not delete from the backup.<BR>

    Keep things simple use the same userid and passwords on the new machine so you can use copy what you need of your USER files.
    This just shows an ideal of what you have to do. You will have to do a lot more. But yuou will need to backup your system and migrating to a new system is a good way of telling if you are backing up what you need to.

  • I had to buy a new computer and just loaded iTunes. All my old songs are gone. Can I load them back in from my iPod?

    my old system crashed and the disk with my itunes library was lost. I've loaded iTunes on my new computer. How can I recreate my songs? Can they be loaded to the computer disk from my iPod nano?

    Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer that it’s not synced with, a message asks if you want to sync songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other content are erased from iPod nano and replaced with songs and other items from that computer.You can prevent iPod nano from syncing when you connect it to a computer other than the one you usually sync with.
    Turn off automatic syncing for iPod nano:
    In the iTunes Summary tab, deselect “Open iTunes when this iPod is connected,” and then click Apply.
    If you turn off automatic syncing, you can still sync by clicking the Sync button.
    Transferring purchased content to another computer
    Content that you purchase in iTunes on one computer can be transferred from iPod nano to an iTunes library on another computer. The other computer must be authorized to play content from your iTunes Store account.
    Authorize another computer:
    Open iTunes on the other computer and choose Store > Authorize This Computer.mm
    Transfer purchased content to another computer:
    1 Open iTunes on the other computer and choose Store > Authorize This Computer.
    2 Connect iPod nano to the newly authorized computer.
    3 In iTunes, choose File > Transfer Purchases from iPod.

  • I have a new computer and I want to transfer my Itunes library

    I am currently running my Itunes library on a Windows XP computer. I just got a new PC Notebook that is running Windows Vista. How do I transfer my complete Itunes library on my old computer to my new computer?

    Welcome to the discussions,
    here's how to back up iTunes and restore it on your new computer:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1382
    To transfer your ipod data back up manually after authorizing the new iTunes and transfer your purchases as well.
    Disable autosync in itunes, connect your iPod, right click on it in the device list and choose backup.
    This will save data and settings to itunes. See what's included in this backup here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766
    Transfer your purchases the same way to copy all apps and bought media from the Store to your computer. Set up at least one contact and event on your computer to be able the merge your calendars and contacts after your phone got wiped during the first sync.
    The rest of the data can be restored from the backup you made.

  • I just bought a new Mac and I want to transfer some data (not all) from my old Mac.  Basically, I want to move my itunes library, iphoto library, and a few documents.  I have not even turned on my new Mac yet.  Is the best way by an external hard drive?

    If both have Firewire ports then you can accomplish your goal by using Target Disk Mode. If this is not possible then you can do using an external drive or if you have a local network connect both to your network and use filesharing between the two computers.

  • HT204406 I have purchased match but when i try to play a song from the cloud on my ipad it displays a message of " cannot connect to iTunes Store" and doesn't play the song. i have reset both devices.

    I have purchased match but when i try to play a song from the cloud on my ipad it displays a message of " cannot connect to iTunes Store" and doesn't play the song. i have rest both devices.

    I called Apple Support and they walked me through it. They told me to basically copy and paste my music to the external hard drive. (I think.) Or maybe it was they had me transfer a folder to the EHD. I don't exactally remember it was a few years back. But I tried to plug in the EHD before starting and...nothing. Still says same thing, "locate file."

  • I've just bought a new mac and I want to transfer the content from my old Macbook to my new. If I have iCloud enabled on both devices, is this simple, or is there a limit to what I can transfer? For example, can I upload word files to iCloud?

    iCloud is not the way to do this. You should use Migration Assistant - with this you can transfer your complete User folder from the old Mac including preferences and logins. You will need to connect the two with FireWire or USB depending on the models.
    Ideally you should do this before you set up the new Mac - if you create a user account with the same name than the Migration will have to give the migrated user folder a different name. When you first switch on the new Mac it should ask you if you want to transfer your data, and give you instructions.

  • I have a new computer and I want to use the "MasterPassword" again. How do I import all of the saved website passwords/logins from my old FireFox computer?

    I have a new computer and I want to use the "MasterPassword" again. How do I import all of the saved website passwords/logins from my old FireFox computer?

    A couple of methods.
    The first is to copy 2 files, key3,db and signons.sqlite from the profile folder of the old computer t the profile folder of the new computer. For details of how to find the profile folder see the [[profiles]] article.
    The second method is to install the [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2848/ Password Exporter] add-on on both computers and use that to export/import the passwords.

    Have you tried restarting or resetting your iPhone?
    Restart: Press On/Off button until the Slide to Power Off slider appears, select Slide to Power Off and, after the iPhone shuts down, then press the On/Off button until the Apple logo appears.
    Reset: Press the Home and On/Off buttons at the same time and hold them until the Apple logo appears (about 10 seconds).
