  • My apple id password will not work in app store after I reset it. Has anyone had this problem

    My apple id password will not work in app store after I reset it. It says the new password, verified by apple, is the wrong one when I purchase things in the store. Has anyone had this problem?

    OK.  Did you have a question?  Do you use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom right hand corner of this page?

  • With my Lion OS, if I upgrade to Office for Mac 2011, it will not work?

    LIke the title says, with Lion OS, even if I upgrade to Office for Mac 2011, I will still be unable to use word docs. The reason it bothers me so much is that I need both my mac.com email and the ability to send Wrod docs to my publisher. I feel stumped.

    even if I upgrade to Office for Mac 2011
    That implies you haven't upgraded yet. Yes?
    I will still be unable to use word docs.
    Why would you presume that? You'll be able to open and create any Word documents.

  • Wav files on external drive will not work in Apple Loops

    When I import wav files (from Nu Jazz Funk library) by dropping on the AL browser from an external drive, Apple Loops insists on copying them to my system drive (no option to make use current location). If I manually make an alias, the files show up, but play at the wrong tempo. I even tried letting AL make the copy, then moving that to an external drive & making an alias of that. No go. BTW, aif files work fine.

    Yeah, that's because Apple Loops are .AIF files, not .WAV.

  • External drives will not mount if the wi-fi is on!

    I have had no replies where I had previously posted so I thought I would try here as I think that it is mainly an Airport problem.
    My problem is this. I have a Macbook that I use at home no problem. I teach at a college where there is are two wi-fi connections that my Macbook automatically connects to depending on where I am in the department. Recently almost everything I try and do causes the spinning beachball for 10 minutes or much more at a time. Additionally, I have discovered that any external drives will not mount on my laptop, unless I switch the wi-fi off! No-one else is having any problems at all.
    One of the wi-fi connections is an Airport Extreme. Each morning my laptop gets the message that there is a problem and I need to update the firmware to 7.5.2. (I originally set the Airport up through my laptop) I am very wary of doing this as everything is working fine for the other 20+ laptops in the department and I have read lots of reports of problems with this update.
    I suppose my questions are these - 1 Does anyone have any idea what is going on with my laptop? 2 What should I try doing to solve this issue?
    I have searched the net and cannot seem to find any reference to this problem anywhere else. Any ideas at all why this might be happening will be much appreciated.

    It was not until Mac OS X 10.6.4, not possible to run on a 10.2 machine, that ExFat was supported.
    Many older Macs also will not recognize GUID formatted partitions made to boot Intel Macs either.
    10.2.3 is the first system to support Apple Partition Map HFS Extended (Jornalled).
    There may be NTFS support based on my tip here:

  • Apple physically replaced the HD on my Imac.  I backed up everything on a Seagate Go Flex Desk for Mac external drive for Mac.  I went through the motions to restore my Iphoto Library back to my computer. Can't find them!!!!!

    Apple replaced my hard drive on my Imac.  I'm lucky I backed up everything on a Seagate Go Flex Desk for Mac external drive via Time Machine .  I followed directions in order to restore my iphoto library , but I can't seem to find it on my computer.  Are the files locked?

    No reason to assume they are locked. The library will be restored to the location it was backed up from, unless you specified somewhere else. Have you looked in your Pictures Folder?

    My external hard drive will not open and only shows up in Disk Utilities. When I try yo repair it, it give me and error of invalid sibling link. How do I fix my external hard drive?

    Invalid sibling link may not be fixable by Disk Utility. (Disk Utility is very conservative, and will not attempt repairs that might cause you to lose data.)
    It is an indication of serious Directory damage.
    that leaves
    a) third-party Utilities that will take those risks, or
    b) re-initializing the drive (which deletes all your data) and restoring from another backup source.
    c) "Copying off whatever files you can salvage" has gone by, and you cannot copy anything off a drive that will not mount. You may be able to use "rescue" programs such as prosoft engineering Data Rescue to copy files to another drive, but that sounds a lot better than its reality. You may get many files, but not get ANY filenames.

  • My imac won't recognize my passport for mac external drive

    I just bought a WD my passport for mac external drive to back up my imac with Snow leopard OS. the passport icon doesn't show on the desktop and when I look using disk utility the external drive isn't recognized. The external drive has nothing wrong with it as I plugged it into a newer imac running 10.9.5 and it works fine on that machine. I went through the troubleshooting steps from WD and the only one left is trouble with the OS. I have updated the software and downloaded the drivers from WD and still no change. Any suggestions? thanks!

    See the mount section of the first link.

  • My Hybrid 1TB Seagate Hard Drive will not work in my data doubler caddy installed in the optical bay

    My Hybrid 1TB Seagate Hard Drive will not work in my data doubler caddy installed in the optical bay of my MacBook Pro

    Thanks for all the advice. It looks like I have finally got my MBP working again (after two weeks of pain).
    The WD HD works fine internally, but restoring from TM introduced a whole load more of issues/incompatabilities (see above). Eventually the only thing left was to re-build rather than restore:
    i) mount the WD disk internally and install Snow Lepoard from the orginial installation disks
    ii) get online, and after much trying download Lion (previously purchased). Perfrom all update.
    iii) Connect my Time Capsule, identify my data, photo and music files and then copy them accross by hand
    iv) install all the other applications (e.g. MS Office:mac, etc) from scratch.
    This exercise has shown me that even though tools and procedures exist to address separate issues, when the complexity of inter-dependence is introduced there are a raft of problems that crop up.
    Now I am back in business I will be using TM and CCC to take full and regular copies. I did this previously, which has saved me from losing my data and cherished pictures, but hopefully next time (and I'm sure there will be a next time) the recovery will be less infuriating.
    BTW I got a refund on the Seagate Momentus XT. They guy in the shop said it wasn't the first time he'd heard of this issue with MBPs. Great.

    Sending by Dropbox where, To who, to what computer? As your does not start up.
    You need to take at least the OS disc to a work Mac computer and create DMG from the OS install disc then restore that DMG to USB thumb drive. Then you can boot the computer from that thumb drive and install the OS. That is if your hard drive is functioning correctly.
    Then you can use the App disc in the external CD/DVD drive to load up all the included Applications that come with your version of OS X.

  • External drive does not show up in finder/ disk utility not able to repair

    Can you please help me?

  • ICloud Drive will not work on my iPad 3. Pages crashes when I try. Setting resets to off after it crashes. any suggestions?

    iCloud Drive will not work on my iPad 3. Pages crashes when I try. Settings resets to off after it crashes. any suggestions?

    From the Ipad manual - actually the same in Ipad, Ipod, Iphone --- the support site listed has frequently asked questions on Icloud drive.
    Set up iCloud Drive
    You can set up iCloud Drive using Setup Assistant when you install iOS 8, or you can set it up later in Settings. iCloud Drive is an upgrade to Documents & Data. When you upgrade to iCloud Drive, your documents are copied to iCloud Drive and become available on your devices using iCloud Drive. You won’t be able to access the documents stored in iCloud Drive on your other devices until they are also upgraded to iOS 8 or OS X Yosemite. For more information about upgrading to iCloud Drive, see support.apple.com/kb/HT6345.
    Set up iCloud Drive. Go to Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive, turn on iCloud Drive, then follow the onscreen instructions.

  • My Ipad 2 external speakers does not work and headphones has popping sound. This all occured at the same time as my Iphone and Ipod headphones only played mono (no, the "mono" option is not on). How can there be audio issue for all these devices?

    My IPad 2 external speaker does not work and the original headphones have popping sound when used. This all occurred at the same time as my IPhone and IPod headphones only plays mono (and no, the "mono" option is not on) with the original headphones, as well as, other headphones tested.  How can there be audio issue for all these devices at the same time?
    As you may have noted from the list of Apple devices I own, I believed in the Apple and the products it was producing; but it is hard to believe from my experience and the other voices within the Apple Community that we are all experiencing the same hardware issues. Especially since I recently, I upgraded to an IPhone 4g (no, my faith in IPhone 5 series is very little) and is experiencing the same audio problem as described above. So now, I am off to the Apple store again to be told that it’s a hardware problem on new IPhone. Really? Apple, what happen to the pride in the product you were producing?

    Everyone does things a little differently. I love to "jam " along with iTunes ( or old Lp's) . Always have. That's where/how I've learned to play .
    I'm sure leonieDF is giving a proper way to jam along on a keyboard with an iTune. He blows my mind all the time with what he knows. Nuff respects to him !
    What I do is make a GB project I call "Jam With". I'll make several new tracks that are blank. Just has a few instruments named in the blank tracks. You can change those per song ...
    Because I'm not concerned about changing the pitch / key.... of the iTune or the tempo ... I can simply play along with it.
    Peace,
