HT2499 I have a new MacBook Pro with OS X Lion 10.7.4. The DVD player does not have a feature to store film clips. Why? This is useful for my work and I had it on my older computer? Why the loss of capacity?

I have a new MacBook Pro with OS X Lion 10.7.4. The DVD player does not have a feature to store film clips. Why? This is useful for my work and I had it on my older computer? Why the loss of capacity?

I cannot recall the DVD player ever being a place to "store" videos - it is simply an app to play videos.
If your machine is new, then iMovie should be included as the "shrunk" version of iLife is included with Lion (iMovie, Garageband, and iPhoto). However, iMovie is not a place to store videos either - it is a video editor. You import your clips and edit them in order to then burn to a DVD or share via a social media site.
Have you considered simply dragging the clips to your folder "Movies"? That would be a great place to just store them (please be aware that videos are usually large files, so keep your hard drive space in mind so you keep a minimum free and available for the OS to operate properly):

  • I have a new MacBook Pro with OS10.8.2 and cannot get Contacts to print a list of addresses with pictures showing.  There is a check box selecting "picture" which has been checked - but no picture.  This worked fine on OS10.7.5.  Problem??

    First, back up all data immediately, as your boot drive might be failing.
    There are a few other possible causes of generalized slow performance that you can rule out easily.
    Reset the System Management Controller.
    If you have many image or video files on the Desktop with preview icons, move them to another folder.
    If applicable, uncheck all boxes in the iCloud preference pane.
    Disconnect all non-essential wired peripherals and remove aftermarket expansion cards, if any.
    Check your keychains in Keychain Access for excessively duplicated items.
    If you have more than one user account, you must be logged in as an administrator to carry out this step.
    Launch the Console application in the same way you launched Activity Monitor. Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.

  • I have a newer MacBook Pro with an AMD processor.  It is my understanding that Parallels can only be used on Mac's with Intel Processors.  Is that true and if so does anyone have recommendations about how to have a windows side to my Mac

    Then it either is a pirate clone or you are misinformed.
    Apple Computer has never used AMD processors in its products.
    However, the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is a Radeon unit, which is an AMD subsidiary. Parallels, VMWare, VirtualBox will all work fine with the Intel Core i7 or i5 CPU that powers the Mac, and use the AMD Radeon GPU that drives the displays.

  • I have a new MacBook Pro with iPhoto installed.  I edit photos, mainly photo orientation via rotating, but when I go back to run a slideshow the changes weren't saved and the photo is back to vertical...please help...thanks

    I have a new MacBook Pro with Iphoto installed when purchased.  When editing a photo, primarily orientation changes, the slideshow initially displays the photos in proper orientation.  However, after leaving Iphoto and shutting down the computer, and then going back to run a slideshow the photo displays back to its' original orientation, that is, the edit-change was not saved.  Please help...the program information says all edit-changes are automatically save and therefore there is no save command, but my changes are not being saved...thank you for any suggestions...HM

    what version of iPhoto and of the OS?
    Back up your iPhoto library, Depress and hold the option (alt) and command keys and launch iPhoto - rebuild your iPhoto library database

  • Hi guys, I recently got a new MacBook Pro with a USB Superdrive. A disc won't eject, does anyone know of a way to eject it? I'm in Morocco for the next 10 days so going to an Apple store is not possible. Any help would be gratefully received, thanks

    Five ways to eject a stuck CD or DVD from the optical drive
    Ejecting the stuck disc can usually be done in one of the following ways:
      1. Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the
          left mouse button until the disc ejects.
      2. Press the Eject button on your keyboard.
      3. Click on the Eject button in the menubar.
      4. Press COMMAND-E.
      5. If none of the above work try this: Open the Terminal application in
          your Utilities folder. At the prompt enter or paste the following:
            /usr/bin/drutil eject
    If this fails then try this:
    Boot the computer into Single-user Mode. At the prompt enter the same command as used above. To restart the computer enter "reboot" at the prompt without quotes.

  • I have a new Macbook Pro with Yosemite and Lightroom 5.6. Lightroom can't find my photos in my docs or on my desktop. Any ideas?

    Thanks for any guidance. I'm new to LR and Macs. I just can't get why my photos, which are in my docs and my desktop, seem to be invisible to LR.

    Where you using iPhoto to import your photos before? if so they are held inside an iPhoto Library.
    You would either need to Extract them, or use the Lightroom plugin to move the images over, Aperture import plugin now available

  • Late 2010 MacBook Pro 15", upgraded to Lion on Sat 23rd no external display does not work

    Hi all,
    Wanted to ask this question here see if anyone might have a solution to my problem.  I have a Late 2010 Macbook Pro 15" which I upgraded to Lion yesteray.  Ever since that upgrade when I try to connect to my TV to watch a video no joy the image looks like the colours are out.
    I have tried it on different resolutions and always the same.  Then for some reason the MacBook Pro split the screen in two.  So now I see the right of the screen on the left of the TV and the left on the righ with a big black line done the middle.
    Priror to the Lion upgrade everything was fine.  Only since Lion has this been a problem.
    I am using a Minidisply to HDMI cable to go direct into my Phillips 42" Plasma, and I have not got a clue why this is doing this.  The strange thing is it works ok on my Samsung BX2450 down the same cable no problems at all just the TV that has issues.
    Any suggestions?
    Cheers

  • The "edit in" does not launch if I make any develop changes.  I am using LR 5.6 and all of my plug ins are properly installed, up to date and were working just fine.  Edit in does work if I reset the image or load an unmodified DNG.

    I am using LR5.6 on a Windows 7 machine with plenty of memory.  LR, CS5 and all of my plug ins have been working just fine.  Tonight I've found that if I make any kind of significant adjustments to an image, and the go to "Edit in.." that function does not launch.  I can use the Edit in command on an unmodified image, or if I reset the modified image.  I have the issue with all of my plug ins, including Photoshop, all of the Nik software, RadLab, and OnOne.  I believe that all of the plug ins are current.  I've been working with them yesterday and I had no issue.  I cannot recall anything that has changed since then, and I have not installed any software.  I'm at a loss!!  Please help!

    I have traced the problem to a corrupted profile.  When I captured the images in question, I also used Color Cherckr to create a profile for processing.  When I apply that profile to the adjustments I make, I can no longer "Edit In".  If I use another profile, even one that I created using Color Checkr at a different point in time, I don't have the issue.  Something seems to have corrupted the new profile.  I will re-create the profile and see if the issue is resolved.

  • Just bought a new Macbook Pro with OS 10.8.2.  Had windows.  I have literally 1,000's of tunes in .wma.  How can I transfer them or otherwise play them on new Mac?

    I just bought a new MacBook Pro with OS x 10.8.2 because my PC died.  I have well over 3,000 tunes and they are WMA and WAV.  Can anyone help me with advice to convert them to iTunes format (MP3).

  • Loading CS5 Master Collection onto new Macbook Pro with no DVD drive

    I have a complete, legitimate, registered version of CS5 Master Collection. I also have a new Macbook Pro with no DVD drive. I have lost the disk, but have the box and confirmation email when I registered the product, with the key code. This product cost alot of money and I really need to get it onto my new machine. Can I do this without having the additional cost of a new DVD drive? I already paid for and own the software with keys so it's not like I'm trying to bend anything or do it for free. Any advice would be appreciated thank you.

    Download the CS5 Master Collection trial version from

    You must follow the Very Important Instructions on that page first otherwise the links will not work.

  • I can't seem to close the screen on my new MacBook Pro with ext montitor

    I have a new MacBook Pro with a Samsung T240 through the DVI link. I can see my desktop on the external monitor when the laptop screen is open, but if I close it the computer goes to sleep and I cannot see anything on the T240.
    I have the Bluetooth keyboard and the Bluetooth mouse. The mouse also deactivates until I manually browse for it after I wake the computer up by opening the screen.
    I know I should be able to keep the display closed but how do I do this? Thanks!

    Let the laptop sleep, then hit a key on the keyboard or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.
