  • I have a 2007 Macbook Pro that is running 10.7.5 and I am trying to use a 10.6.3 DVD to install Snow Leopard to an external hard drive.

    I have a 2007 Macbook Pro that is running 10.7.5 and I am trying to use a 10.6.3 DVD to install Snow Leopard to an external hard drive. I've followed every possible instruction on every which website. The problem is when I boot to Install disc, I am unable to choose which hard drive I'd like to install the OS on. It says that it is unable to Install and automatically takes me to Restore and suggests that I restore to Time Machine backups. Any and all help is appreciated.

    lovinlife5959,
    have you tried booting from the grey Mac OS X Install DVD that originally came in the box with your MacBook Pro? See if you can install its version of Mac OS X (either 10.4.9, 10.4.10, or 10.5.0, depending upon when it shipped from the factory) onto your external hard drive. If that works, boot from your external hard drive, run Software Update on it, and then try updating your external drive to 10.6.3 via the white Snow Leopard DVD.

  • I have a new MacBook Pro Mid 2012 and it goes into deep sleep when I disconnect if from AC power.

    I have a new 13" MacBook Pro mid 2012 and it goes into deep sleep when it is disconnected from AC power.  I have to press the power button to wake it up.  Is this a known issue or is there something wrong with the MacBook Pro?

    There are a few threads about this around. Its a known issue for 2012 non retina users, not sure about Apple. It should not work this way and Apple has not put out an update to fix it yet. Check out these threads for some workarounds. I think I saw if you reinstall and don't update one of the updates you get normal functionality back. Otherwise there are some terminal changes you can make to make it operate mostly normally. I made some changes in terminal.

  • HT1338 I have updated my new MacBook Pro for HP Photosmart All-in-One, but it still will not scan - it will print, but will not scan. How can I fix this?

    I have installed the updates for my HP Photosmart All-in-One c309a.  It prints, but will not scan.  Tells me to update - I did that, but still won't scan.  Any suggestions to make the scanner work?
    This all worked perfectly with my old 2008 MacBook Pro.

    Have you tried scanning from Image Capture or Preview?
    A current driver is shown to be available for Mavericks (auto-downloaded):

    But many people have found that manufacturer scanning control software doesn't work. They have to use the Apple-provided software.

  • I have a new macbook pro and an HP Deskjet D2500 series printer and i can not figure out how to do double sided (duplex) printing! any help?

    Does anyone know how to set up print so that it comes out double sided with the macbook pro??

    How you enable double-sided printing can depend on the applications from whick you wish to print. Example: if I print to my HP PhotoSmart  from Safari, I get this print dialog box:
    (Edit: OOPS! Note that I forgot to switch printers when i took the scene-shots, so ignore the "Brother" reference. It's should look the same for your HP.
    Note the selection labled "Safari" near the bottom. If I change that form "safari to "Layout: I get this:
    Note the option for two-sided printing appears for your selection. If I print from Word, the box is different:
    The "Copies & Pages" option can be changed to "Layout" when you click it, again allowing the selection of two-sided printing.
    If you tell us what applciaiton is vexing you, we may be able to give better-focused information.

  • I'm new to all of this, but I wanted to download minecraft onto my Macbook Pro: 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5 4GB ram. Will it hurt or slowdown my computer in anyway?

    I want my computer to stay the same. Will it? Thanks so much for answering!

    See the configurations listed on the minecraft wiki and comments on performance.

  • I have a new macbook pro.  I'm seeing my wife's iphone contacts on my icloud.  I can't figure out how to get my iphone contacts synced up with my new macbook and get rid of her contacts.  Suggestions?

    I have a new macbook pro.  I'm seeing my wife's iphone contacts on my icloud.  I've done everything I know to do to make sure my apple id is correct and has my information.  I can't figure out how to remove her contacts and add my iphone contacts to the cloud or my macbook pro.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

    You should also ask this in the MacBook Pro forum. This is the forum for the 13” white and black plastic MacBooks that were discontinued in 2010. You should also post this question there to increase your chances of getting an answer.

  • I have a new macbook pro and just made a video on imovie and it asked me to put it on idvd but there is no idvd listed as an option. How can I get idvd?

    I have a new macbook pro and just made a video on imovie and it asked me to put it on idvd but there is no idvd listed as an option. How can i get idvd. it doesn't seem available

    Since Apple has stopped supporting and offering iDVD you'll need to purchase the iLIfe 11 disk from a 3rd party retailer like Amazon.com: iLife 11 which will include iDVD 7.

    iWork! But Office 2008 or 2011 will run fine on Lion
    Lion is awesome, and if you purchased your MacBook Pro since June 6th, go here to get a free copy> http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/
    The bugs are few and far apart

  • I know many have this issue but i can't find a solution to the problem. i get message saying insuffisiant disk space in the volume iPhoto library and i have plenty of space available. i have the new macbook pro with retina display.

    I know many have this issue but i can't find a solution to the problem. i get message saying insuffisiant disk space in the volume iPhoto library and i have plenty of space available. i have the new macbook pro with retina display. i have never seen this message before and i have 2 other macbooks and have had many other also. i am assuming this is a problem with the new macbook retina. does anyone know the exact fix to this issue? i have seen many sugestions to try to fix this issue but none have solved the issue for anyone that i can find in the Apple Support Community. thank for looking into this in advance.
    ******A true apple fan********

    Actually your suggestions are the ones that i have tried. i have seen that you have tried to help others with this issue and the only one that i could find that said they found the problem said that it was an ilife update issue and it fixed it and i have no available updates. i know it has to do with something in photo stream because it happens when i create a new library and it is loading the photos but i get the message before i reach the maximum 1000 photos. so i've tried updating, new library(first backing up photos and then deleting them from iPhoto), reinstalling OSX many times, running disc utilities. I called Apple the first day i had this issue and i was the first person to call them for support with the retina display and i actually had it escalated to a senior advisor and we thought we fixed the problem but we did not. i am pretty fluent in dealing with troubleshooting these type of issues and this is the first time i'm reaching out to the community. i figured now that the retina has been out some time now that there would be an obvious answer to this issue. thanks for the quick reply.

  • I have a new macbook pro hooked up to a belkin wireless router. My HP officejet printer is also connected to the router. I cannont get the printer to work from my computer without restarting my computer evertime I want to print. How do I fix this?

    I have a new Macbook Pro hooked up to a new Belkin wireless router. I can connect to the internet without a problem. I have an HP officejet printer hooked up the the router to work wirelessley, The router is reading it as connected. My computer reads it as offline. If I reset my computer it will print whatever the first thing is in the que but nothing else and does not work after that. Is there some sort of setting that I am missing? I am trying to set this printer up to work wirelessly from three mac laptops in my house but I can't even get it to work on one right now. Any help would be awesome

  • I have the new macbook pro from late 2011. when i try plugging my cannon gl2 into the mac via firewire 800 it does not show up in iMovie as an option to import from. i even have gone into my settings on the camera and changed it to vcr.

    I have the new MacBook Pro from late 2011. "the one before the new ritina display" i have a cannon gl2 video camera which is mini dv. when i plug it into my mac via firwire 800 it does not show up in the iMovie. i have set the settings on the camera to vcr mode and changed it to av->dv out. when i click on the import from camera on imovie it doesnt even show my camera in it. it just gives me the option to import video from my facetime camera. the camera is turned on the wires are connected i know for fact that its a firewire and not a usb. i know what they each look like. i bought the firewire cable and it was marked down cause it was an opened and used item. would it be possible that it could be deffected and if that is not the reason what other options do i have?

    I would say that odds are high that you have a bad cable. Maybe that is why they returned it.
    I would suggest trying a different firewire cable.
    You can find Firewire cables inexpensively at monoprice.com. You need a 4 pin to 9 pin firewire cable.
    Here is a link.

    Other things to check:
    Is your camera plugged in to wall power (not to batteries only). Must be hooked to an AC power source to import.

  • Hello everyone!  i have a new macbook pro and i want to download aperture.  my app store says it is already installed (on my old macbook pro).  how do i install aperture from the app store in this instance please?

    hello everyone!  i have a new macbook pro and i want to download aperture.  my app store says it is already installed (on my old macbook pro).  how do i install aperture from the app store in this instance please?

    Are yoy sure that Apeture is not in the Applications folder of the new system? If it is move it to the trash and the App Store will let you download Aperture from it.
    You will need to make sure you use the same Apple ID you used to purchase it in the past.

    Remember security on a TC is an illusion.
    Simply press the reset button for 1-2 sec.. you must not do too long .. it will then hard reset.. but soft reset will revert all passwords to default for 5min. ie TC password is now public.
    Remember this the next time because anybody at all can change your passwords.
    Once into the TC you can then open the view passwords if you wanted any weaker security. Click and open the TC.. and click on edit.. then go to the top menu..
    Voila .. all your passwords in plain sight to any Tom Dick and Fred.
