iPhoto keeps crashing! - then needs to repair the library. This is happening each time I import photos or even try to go in to an even and delete photos etc. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please it is so frustrating - I used to love iPhoto - now I regret upgrading to Lion

As a Test:
Hold down the option (or alt) key and launch iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Create Library'
Import a few pics into this new, blank library. Is the Problem repeated there?

  • Hi. I'm trying to upgrade my 3G iPad 1 software from 3.2.2 to 5.0.1. iTunes tells me to upgrade. It then backs up my iPad Ok but it won't 'restore'. Thus the upgrade fails. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

  • Hi, I have a macbook pro and when using FaceTime outgoing calls it says connecting but it never connects, however, I can receive incoming calls. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

    Hi,
    I have a macbook pro and when making outgoing calls on facetime I get to connecting but it never does connect, however I can receive incoming calls. Any suggestions please?

    Hey there kakitiga,
    It sounds like you are trying to make a call with FaceTime, it never finishes connecting to the person you are trying to reach. I want to recommend the troubleshooting steps from this article named:
    FaceTime for Mac: Troubleshooting FaceTime
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4185
    If you encounter issues making or receiving FaceTime calls, try the following:
    Verify that FaceTime is enabled in FaceTime > Preferences.If the issue persists, or if you see the message "Waiting for Activation", try toggling FaceTime off and then on.
    Verify that the Date, Time, and Time Zone are set correctly:
    From the Apple () menu, choose System Preferences > Date & Time > Date & Time.
    Enable "Set Automatically".
    Click the Time Zone tab and confirm the closest city is correct.
    Verify that both parties are connected to an active broadband Internet connection.
    See Mac OS X: Troubleshooting a cable modem, DSL, or LAN Internet connection.
    Consult Using FaceTime behind a firewall for necessary ports to open in firewalls, security software and routers.
    If you encounter issues using a Wi-Fi network, use standard Wi-Fi network troubleshooting to resolve interference and other issues.
    Verify the phone number or email address being used is the correct one activated for FaceTime.You can verify that you are using a valid Apple ID at appleid.apple.com. You can also create an Apple ID or reset your password from this website.
    Verify that both parties have installed the latest software updates for their Mac and/or device. See:
    Mac OS X: Updating your software
    iOS: How to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    All the best,

    You don't need iDVD unless you are going to make DVDs. If you are just trying to share files, iDVD won't help you at all.
    What you want to do is in iMovie, choose File/Share/File, and export that way. It creates an .mp4 file that should be readable on Macs or Windows.
    You could also File/Share/YouTube if you don't mind posting them to YouTube, because of course YouTube videos are watchable by any Mac or Windows computer made in the last 10 years.

    thank you, I have the adaptors so glad that would work.  I just heard adaptors burn out often.  So Just thought for my main iMac computer, a plug would be best.  I will get one once I move.
    Any other suggestions or things I should know about apple products in Ireland.  I know there are no Apple stores there.
    An adaptor doesn't burn out. It merely serves as a means to connect the power prongs on your device to the power supply.
    I believe you are thinking of a transformer, which you do not need. A transformer converts one voltage to another.
    You don't need to do that as the power supply of modern electronics can take almost any worldwide voltage.
    Look at the label on the device. It should indicate the input power acceptable of 100-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz.
    Additionally, I found the adapters cheaper in the UK than I found them in the US. They were available in most supermarket chains. I wasn't in Ireland, so I can't say one way or the other.
    If you have something that doesn't have that input power spec, it would require a transformer.
    On other items like electric clocks or things with motors, you can connect them up to a transformer and the voltage will be correct, but the frequency may not. For clocks, that will cause them to not keep time well. For motors, they will burn out.

  • I have an early 2008 Mac Pro, 8 gb ram with a Dell 27" display and a 42" LG TV. I am thinking about upgrading the stock ATI Radeon 2600 graphics card for better resolution, preferring 2 dvi outputs. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best card?

    I have an early 2008 Mac Pro, 8 gb ram with a Dell 27” display and a 42” LG TV. I am thinking about upgrading the stock ATI Radeon 2600 graphics card for better resolution, preferring 2 dvi outputs or 1 dvi and 1 vga vs 1 dvi and a mini. I don't do a lot of Final Cut Pro, gaming, etc. I am interested in best value for the graphics card.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on the best graphics card for these larger displays for the best value?
    Thanks,

    I recommend you install nothing older than the Apple-firware 5770, about US$250.
    RE: Mac Pro Replacement Graphics cards
    1) Apple brand cards,
    2) "sold in the Apple store" cards, and
    3) "Mac Edition" cards ...
    ... show all the screens, including Boot up screens, Safe Mode, Installer, Recovery, debug screens, and Alt/Option boot screens. At this writing, these choices include:
    1) Apple brand cards:
    • Apple-firmware 5770, about US$250** works near full speed in every model Mac Pro, Drivers in 10.6.5
    • Apple-firmware 5870, about US$450
    2) "sold in the Apple store" cards
    • NVIDIA Quadro 4000, about US$1200
    • NVIDIA Quadro 5000, about US$2500
    3) "Mac Edition" cards -- REQUIRE 10.8.3 or later:
    • SAPPHIRE HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 MAC Edition, about US$480** Vendor recommends Mac Pro 4,1
    • EVGA GTX 680 Mac Edition, about US$600
    The cards above require no more than the provided two 6-pin aux power connectors provided in the Mac Pro through 2012 model. Aux cables may not be provided for third-party cards, but are readily available.
    If you are Meet ALL of these:
    • running 10.8.3 or later AND
    • don't care about "no boot screens" etc AND
    • can re-wire or otherwise "work out" the power cabling, THEN:
    You can use many more cards, even most "PC-only cards"

  • I have a new laptop and I am trying to download CS3. The site on adobe gives an error message and the one I tried from this forum downloaded CS3 extended, so my serial number does not work. Does anyone have any suggestions. Regards Vicki

    Hi,
    I have a new laptop and I am trying to download CS3. The site on adobe gives an error message and the one I tried from this forum downloaded CS3 extended, so my serial number does not work. Does anyone have any suggestions. Regards Vicki

    The trial is always extended. The serial number you enter determines whether it runs as standard or extended.
    I'm getting through fine with that link, so it must be a browser issue or some such thing. Try another browser.

  • Hi - I have just bought my first IPAD and I need to transfer from my MAC a 'recipe file' consisting of many, doc and docx files - I have also just bought Keynote to do this but I can't seem to transfer,, does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

    Hi - I have just bought my first IPAD [3 rd gen, no wifi] and one of the things I want it to do is to accept transfered word files
    preferably as folders from my MAC - I just bought Keynote but it doesn't seem to work. My files are all doc and docx so I think
    perhaps looking into it more I should have bought Pages instead,, but I don't want to spend more money on another app if
    possible. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • I can not connect to my work e-mail using both regular e-mail set-up and mail 2003 (work has Outlook 2003).  I get the error message "no internet connection- as soon as a connection is made it will switch back".  Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Why can't I connect to my work e-mail (Outlook 2003) using either the regular e-mail account set-up or Mail 2003? Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I have yet to find an email server that does not work with Mail.app. Your solution will be to configure its ports and send/receive protocol according to the email server's requirements.
    Try the Zimbra support forums. I found this excerpt from a relevant post:
    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/users/46221-mac-mail-app-dont-work-outside-company. html
    in which the following ports were suggested
    ports 25, 465, and/or 487 to send mail.

    The "The connection was reset" error message can be caused by a bug fix for the BEAST (Browser Exploit Against SSL/TLS) attack that the server doesn't handle.
