Why do I get an error in AirDrop that reads The Apple ID certificate for  is invalid.

Why do I get an error in AirDrop that reads The Apple ID certificate for XXXX is invalid. The XXXX would be the name of the other computer I am sending it to. I am trying to transfer files from my iMac to my son's MacBook Air which are both up to date and running Lion.

i had airdrop issues...
when sending to another machine from my own, the other machine instantly denied the request
when the other machine tried sending to me, it failed with a warning "apple id certificate is invalid"
after calling apple:
go to the apple>preferences>iCloud
log out
log in
do this on BOTH machines
fixed

  • I made the mistake of resetting my iPod to factory defaults. Now it will only partially sync to my music library. I continually get an error message saying that certain songs are not authorized for my computer. Any ideas?

    I made the mistake of resetting my iPod to factory defaults. Now it will only partially sync to my music library. I continually get an error message saying that certain songs are not authorized for my computer, although they are in the iTunes library on the computer and will play. It's these songs that won't transfer to the iPod. I have deauthorized and re-authorized the computer but no joy. Any ideas?

    Hello there DesertRat71,
    I was thinking that some of the songs in your library may have been purchased under a different apple id. You have already done the first thing I would have done by de authorizing and re authorizing. To verify this, highlight one of the songs that will not sync over and use File>Get Info. Here is the help menu link for it if you need it help://bookmark='https://help.apple.com/itunes/mac/11.0/help/index.html?localePa th=English.lproj#itns2937'
    In the Summary section there will be an Apple ID entry. If it shows something different than what you are currently using then I recommend signing into the Apple ID it shows and authorizing the computer for that one as well.
    All the best,
    Sterling

  • I need help! when I am importing my NEF files from my D3300 camera into lightroom 5 and try to use the "copy as DNG" button I always get an error message saying that "saying the file is not recognized by the raw format support"

    I need help! when I am importing my NEF Raw files from my D3300 camera into lightroom 5 and try to use the "copy as DNG" button I always get an error message saying that "saying the file is not recognized by the raw format support". The whole purpose of that button is so that the file can be recognized... How can I make the "copy as DNG" button work as it is supposed too?? Thank you

    Thank you for responding. So I essentially will never be able to use that button in lightroom 5? do I need to get LR 6? Will there ever be an update for LR 5 that will enable me to use it?
    Does DNG Converter work within LR or do I have to upload pictures to my computer and then make a second copy in DNG format. and then go into LR and use them?
    Thank you @dj_paige

  • Why do I get this error message: Application has requested the runtime to terminate?

    I get this error message: Application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way.  The application won't open at all even after several tries and a reboot.

      Try making a direct desktop icon for the Editor and see if you can launch the program directly from the desktop.
    Right click anywhere on the desktop and select New >> Shortcut
    Browse to Computer OS C:
    And find the PSE Editor application in Program Files or Program Files (x86) on Windows 7 - 64 bit.
    C: >> Program Files >> Adobe >> Photoshop Elements 9
    Within the Photoshop elements 9 folder find PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe (with the blue icon)
    Select that file and click Next.
    Then click Finish.
      You should now be able to launch by double clicking on the new desktop icon, bypassing the welcome screen.

  • Why do I get an error in airdrop saying it won't accept files.

    I get an error from my MacBook Air and my iMac each saying something along the lines of invalid ID when I try to AirDrop files from one device to another.

    If no one here can answer that question please repost it in the OS X Lion forum. That feature is part of Lion, pehaps someone there has an idea.

    The 2131 usually indicates firmware needs to be updated on a drive.
    Head to your drivers and downloads page for your latitude at Dell, and check for updates to your firmware for your optical drives. If you're behind and you update, does that clear up the 2131?

  • Why do I get these error messages saying that "HWNetMgr" and "HWPortDetect" are insecure start up items?

    I have a brand new MacBook Pro, and two days ago I tried to install a Mobile Broadband named Tele2 Mobile partner, in cooperation with Huawei. The installation couldn't finish, so I removed the components that I could see had already been installed. But ever since I tried to install it, I get two error messages every time I start up safari, saying that I have two insecure start up items named "HWNetMgr" and "HWPortDetect". I have checked my start up items, and the only one I had was Spotify. I removed Spotify as a start object and restarted the computer, but I still got those two error messages. I have now searched through my computer several times and I just can't find these two things.
    Does anyone know what this is about? What can I do to make these error messages go away? I am open to try any suggestions possible! This is a huge investment to me and I just don't want to have ruined it the first week! Please help me!

  • Why do I get an error in iTunes that my internet connection is not good when it is not a problem?

    I am trying to use the "Radio" in iTunes and can successfully access all options except the talk shows. When I click on talk shows I get this. 
    My internet connection is OK. This has been happening for over a week.

    I suggest you browse this forum.  This issue has been going on for over a week now and there's hundreds of similar questions already.  It happens to some people part of the time, some people for all the time, not at all to others. Some genres for some, others for others, etc. Different versions of iTunes and systems. There's some things that seemed to help some people, though I suspect it was just coincidental or it solved a similar but unrelated issue.
    It's not clear what the issue is, or where it lies.  If it's something to do with Apple's servers they are not likely to discuss it.  There was an issue like this a few months ago with the weather widgets and people kept on posting with no news until one day it suddenly started working, again with no news.  If you wish to, you can report to Apple.

    There are other applications that let you listed to online radio if you are desperate.  Check www.pure-mac.com

  • HT1338 I have a slide show in iphoto that I wish to export to iDVD, and when I attempt that I get and error message triangle, ! with the note "This movie contains an invalid data reference"  iphoto help does not seem to have any suggestions, that work.

    I have a slide show (project) that will not export.  The error triangle appears with the message: "This movie contains an invalid data reference"  What is the issue, and what is the solution?
    jh

    I found that the issue was with the title side, it had too many characters in the slide.  When the number of characters was diminished, the show loaded without issue.

  • Why do I get an error message saying that I have insufficient space to restore my iphoto's when I have more than double the available space?

    I deleted my photo's from Iphoto and when I tried to restore them from a backup on my Time capsual I received an error saying that I did not have sufficient space. The Iphoto file is 46Gb and I have over 100Gb available on my hard drive. Why will it not allow me to restore?

    Possibly a damages library.  Try this:  make a temporary, backup copy of your library if you don't already have one (Control-click on the library and select Duplicate from the contextual menu) and  apply the two fixes below in order as needed:
    Fix #1
    Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
    Since only one option can be run at a time start with Option #1, followed by #3 and then #4 as needed.
    Fix #2
    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
    Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
    Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
    In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
    Click on the Create button.
    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

  • Why do I get and error when attempting to install the lighting calendar that it is not compatible with firefox 34.0.5..

    I am using firefox 34.0.5, my thunderbird is 31.3.0 and I am attempting to install the lightning calendar. I checked the compatibility list. I downloaded the correct version of lightning and each time i attempt to install any version it fails and gives me the errors that this version is not compatible with firefox 34.0.5. I have tried five different versions of Lightning with the same results.

    That's a Thunderbird email client extension.

  • Can someone tell me how or why I'm getting an error message when I download the itunes update.

    Hi.  The download for the itunes update gives me an error 7 windows 193. How do I fix that?

    Well, first, if you want help for an iTunes problem, you shouldn't post in the iPad forum. :-)
