LaCie Little Disk - no longer supported? I can't open my backed up files

I plugged my LaCie Little Disk into my MacBook pro.  It comes up on my desktop but when I try to open any of the backed up files I get this message from Finder: "You can't opne the application iPhoto because power PC applications are no longer supported" OK is the oply option!
The files were backed up in 2011 from a Ibook G4.
Any ideas would be appreciated!

What format is the external drive? - to use for the iphoto Library it MUST be Mac OS extended (journaled)
I am not sure of the external drive format.
Then look - select it in the finder and get info
The LaCie instructions say the LaCie Setup Assistant Software must be launched, and to click on the drive icon when it mounts on my computer - But it goes directly to my backed up files, which then won't open (and not just iPhoto).
I have no idea what you want to do here - if the drive is correctly formatted then you need no set up - if it is not then you have a problem because set up will erase it  --  what ever it is it iPhoto is not involved - if you need LaCie support you need to contact them

    Update Office to 2008 or 2011 or else use Pages, TextEdit or download one of a multitude of free programs such as OpenOffice or LibreOffice.

  • Failure to access iPhoto after back up / LaCie Little Disk / Error : 10657

    Hello,
    I recently bought a 320GB LaCie Little Disk external HD. After backing up via TM I try and access iPhoto via HD and get the message "Error code: 10657. The operation couldn't be completed".
    Can anyone pls help me?
    Many thanks,
    GF

    Hi there,
    No, what I mean is when I connect up my external HD back up to MacBook, I cannot access any of my photos and none of my "applications".
    again, how are you accessing them? you are NOT supposed to access TM backups in ANY way directly. if you want to use something from a backup you need to restore it using TM interface to your main drive. then use the restored item on the main drive. to restore something from backup you click on TM in the dock, scroll back in time, select what you want to restore and hit "restore".
    I'm not sure how you are supposed to view one's backed up photos on external HD, but I've tried via:
    Latest backup/ applications/iPhoto
    and
    Latest backup / Library (and iPhoto doesn't even come up in Library)
    you are doing it wrong which is why you are getting the error.
    I've called Apple technical support but unfort they can't help as I bought MacBook over 90 days ago!
    Sorry to be a nuisance - do you think it could be something to do with the security settings?
    Thank you, GF
    I also suggest you take a look at Pondini's FAQs at the top of TM forum http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1964018 and at TM 101 http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1427

  • LaCie Little Disk Has Been Corrupted?

    I have been happily using my Lacie Little Disk 300GB HDD to back up my MacBook data although not as the designated Time Machine as I use it with PCs as well. Since the latest update to 10.6.3 when I now plug in my external HDD it shows one file which is named a mixture of unrecognisable characters. Also showing that the hard drive has the full 300gb available to write to.
    Has this update of Mac OS X somehow linked it to Time Machine as the same thing shows on a PC?
    How to I revert to using my Lacie Little Disk as I was previously and will this restore the data that should still be on it!???
    Any help on this would be great!

    I have just checked those things even though I have always checked no to this drive becoming my Time Machine.
    For Partition Map Scheme it says: Master Boot Record
    And for Format: MS-DOS (FAT32)
    Then whatever happened, it wasn't OSX trying to format it for Time Machine.
    For future reference, if you don't want to use Time Machine at all, you can stop those prompts. Open the Terminal app (in your Applications/Utilities folder). Be *very careful* with this app. It's a direct link into UNIX, the underpinnings of OSX, but without the protections of OSX.
    In Terminal, the prompt looks like this: user-xxxxxx:~ <your name>$
    (where <your name> is your short user name). It's followed by a non-blinking block cursor (unless it's been changed via Terminal > Preferences).
    Copy the following after the prompt:
    defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine DoNotOfferNewDisksForBackup -bool YES
    and press Return.
    That same section is saying I have no files or folders and am using just 1.8MB out of the 320GB!
    Thanks for the suggestion but I'm guessing it's something else! Any more ideas?
    Something else has reformatted or erased it. (The 1.8 MB is the empty directory and partition map.)
    You need specialized +Data Recovery+ software, or a service that performs the function. It's not cheap, and there are no guarantees.
    The app mentioned here most often is +Data Rescue 3,+ but I haven't used it myself, so can't recommend it over any of the others.
    Some of these have a free "trial mode," that will tell you if there's anything to be recovered, and perhaps recover a single file. For more, you have to pay the $$.
    You'll also need another drive to receive anything it can recover.
    Look for apps or services under +Data Recovery+ via Google, VersionTracker.com, or MacUpdate.com.

    You cannot run PPC software in Lion. Go to Epson's website to see if they have an updated scanner driver. If they don't then you can try using VueScan if it supports your scanner model.

  • I keep getting my browser is no longer supported. how can I upgrade from mac os x 10.6.8

    I keep getting my browser is no longer supported. how can I upgrade from mac os x 10.6.8 . Any help would be appreciated

    Open the Mac App Store and try downloading Yosemite. If you get told it's incompatible, choose About this Mac from the Apple menu, check if the computer has at least a Xeon or Core 2 Duo(not Core Duo) CPU and 2GB of RAM, and if it does, click here and order a download code for Lion 10.7.
    Back up your data and check your applications for compatibility before upgrading. In particular, Mac OS X 10.7 and newer don't support PowerPC programs such as versions of Microsoft Office prior to 2008.

    Updated software on Macbook Air and bootcamp partition disappeared.  Windows boot option no longer appears.  Can I get it back and the data?

    Amy, is there a chance they could both be Syncing to another device that has the data erased?
    What are the sizes & modification dates on the files you found?
    Could be many things, we should start with this to be safe, though 2 different ones would seem unlikely to be this problem...
    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106214
    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)
    If perchance you can't find your install Disc, at least try it from the Safe Boot part onward.

  • Hello all.   Hope someone can help me. I recently downloaded some  updates for my imac.  Since doing this the computer starts up but I get no logon box.  The home screen opens but I can't open any programs or files. I've tried rebooting, no joy. Help!!

    Hello all..   I hope someone here can help.  I recently downloaded some updates to my imac.  Since then the computer starts but I get the home screen opening without the logon box.    I can't open any programs or files and if I click on the Safari tab it disappears from the dock.  I've tried rebooting with no joy.
    I contacted technical help at Apple and was told to hold down the ctrl and alt keys with two other keys, I think the S or P keys when powering up. This worked
    and the computer seemed fine but now the problem has reappeared.  Is there a way to removed downloaded updates from the computer or revert it to an earlier state?   Sorry for the long question. Hopefully one of you clever people can help.   Simon

This is the same file format as used by the SX50, with which I never had any problem. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this problem? Thanks.
