I have a Mac Mini, and it won't accept connecting my Sony video camera.  So I got a SD mem card reader to unload my movies from.  It worked the first time I used it a few months ago.  This time it says it doesn't recognize the format I am trying to use?

I have all thenecessary updates.  I have switched over from a PC to Mac back in April and have nad nothing but problems adapting.  I don't know why this worked the first time, and put my videos inti imovie, and now it doesn't recognize it at all.  And the Mem card reader does work, because I just put the SD card from my regular camera into it and it downloaded those fine, it just won't take my movies!

Which sony camera? I have a Sony HDR-CX550 right now and have been able to use the SD card as well as connect the camera directly. I also had CX110 that work too. You may want to try to copy the complete top level folder from the SD card to the Hard drive, then try to "import from Camera archive" and select that folder.

  • If i have my mac mini and my mac air connected to my thunderbolt display at the same time how do I switch between each of them without unplugging one of them?

    If i have my mac mini and my mac air connected to my thunderbolt display at the same time how do I switch between each of them without unplugging one of them? (By the way im mirroring my macbook air to my thunderbolt display not dual screening it)

    That's not what home sharing is for or how it works.
    You want the remote app.

  • I have pages 09 0n my Mac Mini, but iCloud won't accept pdf documents not created in pages...

    I have pages 09 0n my Mac Mini, but iCloud won't accept some pdf documents not created in Pages (Its says Document format not supported).
    How do I get docs (pdf/jpg etc.), that are saved under "Documents" on my Mac Mini (Not in Pages), onto iCloud???
    I want to transfer (None Pages) documents from the Mac Mini to my iPad 3 (Which has Pages for iPad 3).
    Thanks in advance for ANY Feedback!

    You can download PDF files from iWork's page to a mac, but you can't upload from mac.  Also, you can't use iCloud like MobileMe's iDisk.  Most document formats on your mini can't be copied to iCloud.  Use Dropboc instead.

    The latest Apple driver support begins with the MP 171.
    Here is Ricoh's official driver download page specifically for the Afico MP 161. Note that new drivers for this device were released on Aug 2, and include Lion and Mountain Lion.
    Hopefully, this will solve your device issues.

  • I have a mac mini and just purchased a moshi hdmi connector for my LED TV. The problem is, I wanted to be able to take my mouse from one screen to another, not just as a mirror image! Is it possible to do this some how?

    The Apple Support Communities are an international user to user technical support forum. As a man from Mexico, Spanish is my native tongue. I do not speak English very well, however, I do write in English with the aid of the Mac OS X spelling and grammar checks. I also live in a culture perhaps very very different from your own. When offering advice in the ASC, my comments are not meant to be anything more than helpful and certainly not to be taken as insults.
    If you have two displays attached, then the function to change from mirrored to extended Desktop will appear in System Prefs/Displays.

    Add an external drive and share a library? Clone your library from one machine to the other? Us iPhoto Library Manager - http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ -  to move photos between the libraries?
    Totally depends on exactly what you want to accomplish

  • I'm trying to e-mail music scores and audios, but I receive an error message saying Preview doesn't recognize the file format, regardless whether I use .mus, .pdf, or .mp3.  I haven't come across Preview or this problem before.  Any suggestions?

    I'm trying to send music, scores and audio, as e-mail attachments, with a copy to my e-mail address.  Whether I use .mus, .pdf, or .mp3, the error message says Preview doesn't recognize the file format.  I haven't seen Preview, or had any problems, before now.  Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hi,
    Firstly, your country is detemined by several factors, including your phone's regional settings, your SIM card and your NokiaAccount settings, if you used this phone whilst abroad then you may need to check that your regional and account settings are up to date since you have arrived in Canada.
    For services like Gigs, you should also ensure that the MixRadio app has access to your phone's GPS location as well as the main location being on in the phone settings. To check this, as well as Location being turned on in the phone settings, in MixRadio itself go to Settings>Location>On:
    The concern with favourites may also be related to location, if the music from certain artists is available in Canada but not where the service might think you are, availability of content may vary from region to region.
    If all settings in both the phone, your Nokia Account and the MixRadio app are correct, we may have to investigate deeper.
    It is impossible to comment on your camera without seeing it, you cold have the phone checked by Nokia Care locally, but of course if it was supplied in Europe it will be covered by the European Limited Warranty which is not valid in Canada.
    If this or any post answers your question, please remember to help others by pressing the 'Accept as solution' button.

  • I used to sync my ipad on an asus laptop, now I have a Mac mini and want to sync with it. Can I? Can things be transferred from laptop to Mac mini?

    I synced my ipad2 with an asus laptop. Now I have a Mac mini that I want to use for syncing and backup. But when I connected my ipad to the Mac mini it said something about the ipad being already synced to another computer and backup is permitted only one computer at a time. How can I transfer my backup to the Mac mini ? And delete my previous (I.e. asus laptop) iTunes backup system?

    You don't have to delete anything from the Asus. You can copy your iTunes library from the laptop to the Mac. Read this for more information.

  • I have a mac mini, and I need to be able to submit online documents that are format APA style and as a word document. Can I do this in pages?

    I have a mac mini, late 2012. I need to be able to submit online documents in APA style and as a MSWord document. Can I do this using pages or another app??

    In addition to what lllaass wrote, I would add that you keep it simple, that is, keep to APA 6 formatting requirements, but watch use of bullets, as well as insertion of figures or charts.  It also might help if you had access to MS Office for Windows to open up your file before uploading to confirm that what you wrote in Pages is what the 'reader' on the other sees.

  • Have a mac mini and just bought a macbook pro

    i have an 09 mac mini and just bought a macbook pro today... i was wondering if there is anything i could do between the two of them, like wireless connections or something... i'm not asking to use the macbook pro as a monitor or anything like that, just wanted to know if there were any cool things i didn't know about that i could do between the 2...thanks-bruce

    Bruce you can do a lot but you need to be specific. Your question is so general it's impossible to get an idea what you have interest in doing. However the first place I'd start is looking into sharing on your System Preferences and before you start punching in preferences get yourself a book at a bookstore about OS X and study a little on sharing and OS X in general. However to get you started read this:

  • Mac Mini (mid 2010) won't accept upgrade to 8GB

    Hi All -
    Trying to upgrade from original 2 + 2 GB to new 4 + 4 GB. Spec says 8 GB is OK. The new memory is PNY type DDR3 1066 MHz PC3-8500 (this meets Apple spec). With 8 GB installed machine will not start  (1 beep every 5 s = no memory). However, if I install 2 + 4 = 6 GB everything is OK. It cannot be a faulty 4 GB module because either 4 GB works separately. I have tried reseating the modules numerous times. The Mac Mini is 2.66 C2 Duo with preinstalled Mac OS X Server Ver. 10.6.8. All related software is fully up to date.
    What is happening, and can it be sorted? Many thanks.

    maybe it is that one RAM module is bad,  try to exchange them for a new one.  I had that happen once bought bad RAM.
    I have that year mac mini and it runs so much better with the 8GB.

  • I have Office:mac 2004 and it won't download on my new MacBook Air.  Is it too old?  It says PowerPC applications are no longer accepted.

    I have old Office:Mac 2004 Student and Teacher Edition from my previous MacBook and it won't download onto my new MacBook Air via external optical drive and says that PowerPC applications are no longer supported.  Am I stuck bying the newer version or is there a way around the software issue so I don't have to spend more money.  Thanks for your help. 
    Kevin

    You can purchase Offce 2011 from MacMall for about $99 so it is well worth the money.  As said in a previous post by Kappy, you can try one of the free office suites available.  They can read Office files and can save documents in Office format.  Apple's iWork is also a good ffice suite afavilable from the App Store by download. I have used Open Office,Libre Office and Neo Office and have liked each one of them.  Neo Office has the closest match to Apple operating systems - it just feels like an Apple program.  Open Office and Libre Office are also very good choices and dont have much of a learning curve at all.

  • HT3964 My Mac OX 10.9.2 is unable to read any disk since I updated the new operating system on it a few months ago. How may I resolve this problem?

    My Mac OS X 10.9.2 is unable to read any disc since I updated the operating system to Marverick a few months back. How can i resolve this problem because I need to retrieve very important information on my discs. Help! Thank you... paul

    Paul,
    Your problem has nothign to do with your installation of Mavericks. I assume you are referring to your SuperDrive not being able to read any discs, is that correct? If so then please advise what troubleshooting steps you have taken?
