My new imac won't read all the data on my dvd r

I burned some photos onto a DVD R using Nero on Windows XP.
My new mac will read the disk and some of it's contents but not all???
Any ideas?

It could depend on what format the content is that is not readable - if you have access to the Windows machine, you could check on the format (and/or know the format if you burned it)? Is it just .jpeg's? Or did you make a slideshow resulting in an mpg2 possibly? In that case, you'd need to buy the MPEG2 Playback Component from the Apple Store (less than $20) because Quicktime can't read that format without the playback component.
Can the DVD be played in a regular DVD player?

  • Why my new iMac won't read my external hard drive?

    Why my new imac won't read my external hard drive??

    Sorry for not responding sooner, I support your position completely - as for the external drive I assumed that the individual was a previous mac user and knew about that (my mistake) at home I have a couple of external drives
    one drive is acknowledged regardless of format (mac/win) its a partitioned drive.... the other one - far as the mac is concerned does exist when i connect it.  I believe its a win only drive (will have to check the specs on it) but it works on the win-notebooks.
    so my point of reference was coming that perspective, with no additional posts I have to assume you had the correct answer.  have a great day.

  • I have a new iMac, and successfully transferred all the music. But I still can't get my iPod to download from iTunes without it losing all of the songs, photos, or tones.

    I have transferred all of the songs from the old iMac we own to a new one we just bought. I have already had one problem with the music as in some songs wouldn't play without me using sharing. So I took and old computer off the sharing network and all is well there. But my iPod Touch will not download any music, tones, or pictures without me taking all of the previous items on my iPod Touch. Anyone have any clue what I should do?

    Since I am impatient and can't wait for 90 minutes for an answer, I have decided to lose everything on my iPod and try to remember all the songs I had on them. But if anyone can help me prevent this in the future, that woud be great!

  • My brand new iMac won't connect to the internet - the Air is fine?

    Hi All,
    Loved my Air so much I bought an Imac today to do some serious work - but it won't connect to the internet.  It won't load any external webpages, the wireless symbol in the menu bar is at full strength and in settings it says its connected to the modem.  Its also finally recognising local time.  It can also 'see' my Macbook Air in the 'Migration Assistant' but doesn't connect.  The Air can't find the Imac in the 'migration assistant' and just spins.  I've rebooted the modem, turned both on and off, checked  Safari settings eg extensions (none loaded - its new today).
    Essentially I've not been able to view a webpage with the new Imac at all - very frustrating and disappointing. (The Air was a breeze to set up).
    I'm not very technical so does anyone have any suggestions?  Or do I just return it?  TIA.

    Hi csimiamifreak1,
    Is your iPod appearing in "My Computer" or not?
    If it isn't, then see this:
    iPod missing in "My Computer" or in iTunes for Windows

  • Mail app - new account won't download all the messages

    I setup a new email account on Mail and it downloaded 250 of my emails, but then it stops at March 23rd. If I log onto yahoo, all the new emails are there and it was working fine when I was using Thunderbird.
    In fact, under mail activity, if I click on get mail it says it's downloading 161 more emails, but it never displays in the inbox. And if I click on the Get Info for that mailbox, it actually shows all my new emails under "Messages on Server".
    Is there a way to get the messages to be retrieved under the inbox? I've tried deleting the account and re-adding it, but it keeps stopping at the same date. I've also added two other email accounts and those downloaded fine (also POP accounts).

  • It appears "save as" was removed in the creation of Yosemite.  How can I save a spreadsheet as a new document and then change all the data

    "save as" was removed in the creation of Yosemite (File > Save as)  How can I save an existing spreadsheet so that I can modify the data, rename it , and save it as a new document?

    To address the first part of your response; as unnecessary as it was; save as has not been gone for years!!  It is predicated on the operating system in play on ones computer.  The software that I was using as recent as six months ago had a "Save as" option in the menu bar.  Further, as you may have noted in "babowa's response it is clear that it still exists to this day in apple's most recent software "Yosemite 10.10.2.  This appears to be true whether talking about numbers or pages (apps.)  Oh, and by the way I am employing the most recent versions offered by Apple!  Your car may be five years old but I am sure you still find it very useful.  Case and point; it's not gone!!!

  • I was using an apple id, but now I wanna use a new apple id and keep all the data which i stored in the old one. Is that possible to do that?

    I was used one apple id for 2 phones.
    But now, I would like to use a new apple id but store back the old data from the old apple id.
    Is that possible to do that?

    No it is not. Purchases are forever tied to the Apple ID that they were purchased with.
    However, if you want to change your Apple ID, and it is not an,, or email address, you can log on to Manage your Apple ID with your current ID and password, then click on the EDIT button next to the Apple ID. You can change it to any valid email address that is not an Apple domain email address (the @me, @mac, @icloud mentioned above):

  • Is there a way to keep all the data on my phone while syncing to a new laptop? I lost all the data on my old one.

    Recently my old mac laptop lost all it's data. Is it possible for me to sync my iphone to a new computer without losing everything on my phone?

    Your i-device was not designed for unique storage of your media. It is not a backup device and media transfer was planned with you maintaining a master copy of your media on a computer which is itself properly backed up against loss. Syncing is one way, computer to device, updating the device content to the content on the computer, not updating or restoring content on a computer. The exception is iTunes Store purchases which can be transferred to a computer.
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer - - only purchases from iTunes Store
    For transferring other items from an i-device to a computer you will have to use third party commercial software.  See this document by turingtest2: Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device -

  • How can I sync my ipod 6g. to a new computer with out losing all the info

    My computer is starting to fail so I bought a new one. How do I sync my ipods they are 6 gen to the new computer with out losing all the data that is on the ipod?

    Was your iPod previously set up to Manually Manage (where you dragged/dropped the music) or was it set to auto sync (where it started sycning as soon as you plugged it in.)?
    If it was set to Manual, you have no worries. Just continue on your way.
    If it was set to Auto, you will have to transfer your purchases or redownload them from the iTunes store.
    You're either going to have to get the other music back from the websites/CDs you got them from before or find an iPod ripping software program that will do it for you.

  • TRansfered all the data, now can't log in to new mac.

    I bought an iMac yesterday and transfered all the data from my MBP to the iMac using the Migration Assistant. Now I can't log in to the iMac. It keeps telling me I'm using the wrong password and should reset it using AppleID. Well, I can't get to the AppleID system to be able to do that as I can't log in. Which means, I am now back on using my MBP and my iMac is sat on the desk as a nice large very expensive piece of ornament.
    Help, please!

    You can use SS management studio to connect to DB. What you need to do, is to ensure your connection string is something like
    <add name="conn2" connectionString="Data Source=192.?.?.?\your_db_instance;Initial Catalog=your_db_schema;Integrated Security=False;User ID=your_db_login;Password=??????" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
    within Web.config/app.config file in your project, to ensure the project will work fine with the database.

  • How can I sync my iPhone 4 with a new MacBook Pro without losing all my data and settings?

    I used to sync my iPhone 4 with a PC running Windows XP until the hard drive died. Thankfully, I already had a backup of all my iTunes media (Songs, TV Shows, Movies, Podcasts, Apps, etc), so when I bought a new MacBook Pro, transferring my iTunes library was easy.
    My problem now is that I want to sync my iPhone 4 with my new MacBook Pro without losing all the data and settings. I have already used iTunes to back it up and transfered my purchases onto the mac. I just need help to sync the iPhone with the Mac without losing app data, emails, contacts, settings.
    Everytime I click on the tabs (to sync contacts, apps, music, et al), I get an error message that reads:
    "Are you sure you want to sync apps? All existing apps and their data on the iPhone “Ryan's iPhone” will be replaced with apps from this iTunes library."
    What do I do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am experiencing the same issue with a new external DVD burner, a Sony DRX-840U. When I load a CD into this external drive it appears in iTunes but when you go to import or play the CD iTunes indicates playing or importing for each individual track for just a moment. The end result is that nothing is ever imported or played. I am experiencing this on two different systems. One a notebook running Win2K and the other a desktop running XPpro. If I use the internal DVD drives on either of these systems everything work just fine. Yet I am able to use this new external DVD drive with every other application. For example Window Media Player has no problem playing or importing the same CD that iTunes fails on. The last person indicated that if one set the DVD drive in question to be the drive of choice under preferences>advanced>burning that all was ok. I my case this Sony external drive is the drive listed as the drive of choice for burning yet the issue still exists.
    As this appears to be an issue that others are also experiencing help from Apple Tech Support would be greatly appreciated.

  • I have a Olympus C-3000 and it won't read in the new iphoto.  It reads in my old version on my older computer.  Is there a driver I need or something else?

    I have a Olympus C-3000 and it won't read in the new iphoto.  It reads in my old version on my older computer.  Is there a driver I need or something else?

    Yes, different computers, different OS's, as stated, does not work on any machine except PPC.
    Nothing in console logs.  Does not show up in USB under system profiler.
    Level 1 tech support.  "May be this" or "may be that", but all a waste of time unless someone has the actual camera and can independently verify my results.
    If it were just a matter of it happening on one machine that would be one thing.  The fact that it only does not work on Intel based machines (and thus Snow Leopard and Lion) it is a pretty good indicator that something is missing in the OS.
