Transfering Registration and passwords over to a new computer

I would like to know how do you transfer registration/passwords for applications on my g4 computer running classic 9.22 to a new g5 computer running mac osx. I would like to save the time in installing and re-registering. Plus, i also lost some of my software apps.
Mac   Mac OS 9.2.x  

Hi, ayzee. The first thing to do is simple: just copy the application folders from your G4 into the Applications (OS 9) folder on the G5. Some of them will probably work just fine in Classic mode under OS X without any further attention. Others may prompt you to enter registration info, serial numbers, etc. Those apps probably stored the information they're asking you to supply in some obscure place on your OS 9 hard drive, and you may or may not be able to find it, or to recognize it when you do find it. There is no consistency from one app to another in how or where such info is stored, whether it's encrypted, etc.
For apps that ask for such data when you try to run them in Classic mode under OS X, the best solution is to reinstall them from their original source CDs. The alternative is to rummage through the hard drive on the old G4 looking for a file or files that seem likely to contain the needed information, and copy such files to the same locations on your G5's drive that they occupied on the G4's. Some such files will probably be invisible, and you'll have to have a utility that can make them visible in order to move or copy them with the Finder.
For apps whose source CDs you've lost, call the software developers, establish your credentials as a registered user of their software, and ask their advice on identifying and moving the necessary files. You might also want to ask about the availability of replacement CDs.

  • Transferring music and movies from ipod to new computer

    ive tried free programs that end having to be paid for which i cant do and i cant seem to figure out how to get unpurchased music and movies off my ipod onto a new computer.keep in mind i dont have my old hard drive with my music on it hooked up.can anybody help pleaseeeee?

    For all non purchased content (your own CDs etc) try this method which works on some Windows PCs.
    Enable your iPod for disk use.
    See: iPod Disk Use.
    Open iTunes and select edit/preferences/advanced/general. Put a check mark in the box marked "copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library" and also "keep iTunes music folder organized", then click 'ok'.
    Connect the iPod whilst holding down the shift/ctrl keys to prevent any auto sync, and if you see the dialogue window asking if you want to sync to this itunes library, click 'no'.
    Then go to file/add folder, open 'my computer', select your iPod and click 'ok'.
    The music files should transfer to your iTunes.
    If this doesn't work (and it may not because officially it's not supposed to), check out the instructions/suggestions here.
    Music from iPod to computer (using option 2). This a manual method using "hidden folders" and although it works, it is a little more involved than other methods.
    Much easier ways are to use one of the many 3rd party programs that copy music from the iPod to the computer.
    One of the most recommended is Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.
    Another free program is Pod Player.
    SharePod is also freeware.
    If you want to recover just the structure of playlists from the iPod (and not the actual song files themselves), there's iRepo for Windows. which I understand has this feature along with all the standard features for these programs.
    iPodRip also has the feature enabling you to reconstruct playlists.
    There is also CopyTrans. This does preserve ratings/playcounts etc if those are important to you but this program is not free. It also supports video transfer.

  • Need user name and password to install on new computer...

    I just switched from PC to Apple, and when I try to install my Contribute 2.0, I'm being asked for a User Name and Password. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of what the user name and password might be. How can I get them so that I can complete the installation process? Your help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Using "@" in a password for a DB User is not supported at all (allthough it works).
    I did so myself once and I think it was possible to get a connection utilize quotes,
    but I do not remember which ones in what way.
    Could have been like
    sqlplus "sapsr3/admin@1234"
    but not very sure any more.
    My be toy around with this, but more easy is to use brtools and change the
    password to contain only valid oracle letters.
    The problem with "@" is, that it delimits the SQLNET Connect identifier.
    Volker
    Oh, and for executing brtools, do not provide a user at all or only "-u /"
    This should do a sysdba connect.

    Recently I have switched out computers and had copied/ transferred my I ITunes library to the new computer and encountered problem.  Many of the songs in the library were purchased from my old email address of that I no longer use nor did I remember the old password in order to authorize playing from the new computer.   Request advice/assistance to where I am able to play songs acquired through lost password?

    Posting your phone number of a public forum is not smart, I have asked the moderators to remove it.

  • Have tried to copy ratings over to a new computer using the export playlist function and this fails... can anyone suggest why?

    have tried to copy ratings over to a new computer using the export playlist function and this fails... can anyone suggest why?

    Because ratings don't travel with the files or the playlist.
    These are two possible approaches that will normally work to move an existing library to a new computer.
    Method 1
    Backup the library with this User Tip.
    Deauthorize the old computer if you no longer want to access protected content on it.
    Restore the backup to your new computer using the same tool used to back it up.
    Keep your backup up-to-date in future.
    Method 2
    Connect the two computers to the same network. Share your <User's Music> folder from the old computer and copy the entire iTunes library folder into the <User's Music> folder on the new one. Again, deauthorize the old computer if no longer required.
    Both methods should give the new computer a working clone of the library that was on the old one. As far as iTunes is concerned this is still the "home" library for your devices so you shouldn't have any issues with iTunes wanting to erase and reload.
    I'd recommend method 1 since it establishes an ongoing backup for your library.
    If you have an iOS device that syncs with contact & calendar data on your computer you should migrate this information too. If that isn't possible create a dummy entry of each type in your new profile and iTunes should offer to merge the existing data from the device into the computer, otherwise the danger is that it will wipe the information from the device.
    If your media folder has been split out from the main iTunes folder you may need to do some preparatory work to make it easier to move. See make a split library portable.
    Should you be in the unfortunate position where you are no longer able to access your original library, or a backup of it, then see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device for advice on how to set up your devices with a new library with the maximum preservation of data. If you don't have any Apple devices then see HT2519 - Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store.

    we are using same laptop with my wife for our 2 iphones and when sincronizing, she's getting my apps and is requested for my apple id and password when getting a new app on her device. How can i fix that issue?

    Each phone needs to set its own sync settings on the various tabs in iTunes.  On the Apps tab, for example, uncheck the apps that you don't want on the phone being synced.  This article may also be of interest: http://gigaom.com/apple/itunes-101-multiple-devices-one-itunes-account/.
    You can change the Apple ID used for purchasing on her phone by going to Settings>Store>Apple ID, tap the ID shown, sign out, sign back in using her Apple ID.  However, be aware that if she has any apps on her phone purchased with your Apple ID she will still be prompted to enter the password associated with this ID for all future updates of these apps.  This is because apps are permanently tied to the Apple ID used to purchase them, regardless of the ID in Settings>Store.

  • I transferred my files, including iTunes, to a new computer. When I go to sync, it says I'm still synced with the old, do I want to erase and resync. AND then it says not enough space. What to do?

    I transferred my files, including iTunes, to a new computer. When I go to sync, it says I'm still synced with the old, do I want to erase and resync. AND then it says not enough space. What to do?

    Pictures, assuming they were taken with the device, can be copied off at any time.  This has nothing to do with syncing.
    If the pictures were instead synced to the device via iTunes, they are not the original images.  Instead, they are optimized copies of the originals for display on the iPhone.  There is software that can extract them, google it.
    Where is the backup of the computer?  And before you ask, the iPhone, like all iDevices, is not and has never been a backup device.

  • Transferring Library from Old iPOD mini to new computer...

    My computer was fried about a month ago. My company's IT department replaced it, but I lost my library of iTUNES entirely from the hard disk. The whole library is of course on my old iPOD mini. I want to transfer the library from the old iPOD mini to my new computer and then, in turn, to my new NANO - which I am very excited about. I have installed the nano and the iTUNEs on my new computer. I am fearful that if I plug my old iPOD mini into the new computer, with the blank library, that it will erase the iPOD mini library. HELP!

    DO NOT attach & sync your full iPod to an empty iTunes!!!
    These links will give you several methods of recovering whatever songs remain on your iPod; some free, some third-party software, some more comprehensive for restoring Playlists, Ratings, Play Counts, etc. Read them and their associated links before deciding on a strategy that works for you. There are many various third-party software programs that will offer a more robust process, or an easier GUI. Do a Google search for them if the links below leave you wanting…
    Don King Resurrected: Deleted files from hard drive (free user steps – music recovery only)
    MacMuse: Computer Crashed (free user steps – music recovery only)
    Copying music from iPod to computer (a primer on various methods and software)
    Copying Songs from Your iPod to a Mac or PC (resource for 3rd party software)
    iPodRip Software
    PodUtil Software
    Senuti (Mac OS X v10.3 or higher Recovery Utility)
    XPlay (Windows software For Music Recovery &/or Cross-Platform Functionality)
    XPlay Photo Browser (For recovering Photos)
    Extremely Simple Method: (just to recover the song files)
    1 - Open iTunes
    2 - Edit=>Preferences=>’Advanced/General’ tab
    2a --- Select ‘Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library’: checked
    2b --- Select ‘Keep iTunes Music folder organized’: checked
    2c --- Click OK to store changes
    3 - Attach your iPod to the PC and hold down the ‘Shift+Ctrl’ keys until the iPod is fully recognized (this will defeat the auto-sync process)
    4 - If you get a dialog box to link the Library, decline this option
    5 – Within iTunes: File=>Add Folder
    6 - Browse to and open ‘My Computer’ (click on the ‘+’) and select the iPod
    7 - Click OK
    8 - The music files should start to transfer back into iTunes
    8a –- this will take some time depending on your PC and the amount of songs on the iPod
    No Playlists, or Ratings, Last Played, & Play Count attributes will be transferred from the iPod to iTunes using this method
    After recovering your song files, strongly consider developing a thorough backup strategy for just this type of situation (and many other potential disasters).
    You need at least two full sets of your music, not including what is on the iPod:
    -- One full set on the PC within iTunes (on internal HD or ExHD)
    -- One full set on an separate external backup medium (CD/DVD/ExHD/other)
    -- One (full or partial) set on the iPod
    Music files on just the iPod and only one other medium is not considered having any backup.
    If you cannot store your complete music files on the computer’s internal HD, then create and maintain at least two external sets (any multiple combinations of ExHDs, DVDs, CDs).
    Backup both the music files and the Library database file (iTunes Library.itl). What are the iTunes Library files?

    While this won't help if you are having password problems, I did want to point out that you do not need to access old machines to de-authorize them. Once you are signed in at the iTunes store, access "my account" by clicking on your username in the top navigation bar. Then "manage devices".  You can remove any old machines that way.

  • I have a new computer and I want to make it my home device for I tunes. I have home sharing, and all of the music and files are on the new computer. Now what do I do to make the new computer the home computer for Itunes?

    I have a new computer and I want to make it my home device for I tunes. I have home sharing, and all of the music and files are on the new computer. Now what do I do to make the new computer the home computer for Itunes?

    The computer (windows platform) where I initially began using Itunes has four other computers/devices that are shared with it. All four of the other computers show up in my account, and can be managed. Or I can remove them. But on the new computer that I want to be my base computer (home if you will). The computer I want it to replace, when ITunes is open, has a tool bar, with various functions. All of the other devices are linked to that computer in ITunes, under Home SHaring. The new computer, shows the downloads via Home Sharing, but it does not show/have any tool bar.
    I want to activate the new computer to be the computer via ITunes where all of the devices are linked to it as the base for ITunes. And, I don't know how to make that happen.
    I hope that makes sense.
