Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

PDF Documents. Pdf reader(s)

Hello and welcome to fixya.

On this page I will show you a few different programs for reading PDF files on your computer, PC, MAC and Pocket PC / phone devices.

Note that these are all FREE programs and you do not need to pay anything for them, if you somehow pay for one of these programs you have made a mistake, try to get your money back.
(Except the Pocket pc / phone application, there are free alternatives for that as well, but for this tip I only included the official Adobe LE which is 15 $)

For PC (Windows xp and newer)

I would recommend Adobe PDF reader, OR a smaller simpler program would be FOXIT READER.

My personal preference is the foxit reader as it is smaller and it is faster to install, the adobe pdf reader takes more space but its a great product.



For MAC, Visit Adobe Reader for Macintosh

For Pocket PC / PDA / Phones. Adobe LE Mobile http://www.quickoffice.com/adobe_reader/

Thank you for reading

IMac won't read Imation 160GB Apollo 2.5

Mac's won't read windows format disc, even if it's capable of reading the files wich I believe Newer Mac Operating Systems CAN DO, it can not read the file SYSTEM used to place them on the disc. You need a third computer. Put the files on a nother computer or two if you need the room or on another media or pocket drive. Use a program that VERIFIES the were moved without errors while copying them, the use the Mac to format the now empty disc drive and download Mac Pooler, or File Stuffer, and copy the files back onto the disc. Now the Mac will be able to read the drive they're on.

how uninstall the etype socre board?

Hello and welcome to FixYa,

I am sending you a link to a page for the etype.com showing you how to uninstall this program.


It is all the way at the bottom, however; there are a lot of 'programs' that appear to uninstall it, but still

leave trace files of it in your computer, taking up space and slow your computer down. If you truly

would like to get rid of it completely after reading the link i gave you and all the reasons why you may

not want to and how to do it their way; go to this link. It is a free program that will erase it.

Please download the free version of Revo from the link below


Once downloaded. make sure to run the file, to install Revo.,

Revo is an uninstaller tool, that works much better then the built in windows uninstall tool. Once installed, run the revo program. Open revo, find program you want to delete, double click it, to start uninstall process, select advanced, click select and delete all files as they come up. Your program will be gone!

Let me know if you run into trouble or need help!

Thanks, KittyTech

Hello, Our designer, who works on a Mac, put all his files on a G-drive Mini portable drive and sent it to me. I have a PC and am trying to get into the drive. It doesn't pop up on my computer when I plug it in. Is there a way I can get into it?

Mac files normally have a Mac-binary, or double-fork structure that the PC cannot handle directly. Therefore, it is convenient to convert any Mac file prior to transferring it to a PC or a PC-based network (or to another Mac via a PC or an on-line service) so that its structure will resemble the binary structure of the conventional PC file. The Mac software to accomplish this is called MacBinary (formerly BinHex), and it is available as freeware from CompuServe (GO MACFF, filename BINHEX.HEX). It is also one of the utilities of Stuffit by Aladdin Systems, v. 3.07 or higher, and comes bundled with some communication programs. MacBinary adds a header consisting of a few (usually 128) bytes to the file. This header contains the file type and creator information and a filename that can be different from the original Mac filename. It acts as a "wrapper," hiding the double-fork Mac structure for transfer to and storage in a PC system.
When the file is transferred via modem, the MacBinary file transfer protocol (ZModem MacBinary, YModem MacBinary, etc.) automatically creates the binary PC header for the transfer. However, when the transfer is done via diskette or a typical network (or when a Binary, rather than a MacBinary, modem transfer protocol is used), the conversion from MacBinary to Binary format must be done prior to the transfer in a separate step.
If a Mac file is converted to a PC format, e.g. WordPerfect DOS or Microsoft Word Windows, on the Mac and subsequently transferred to a PC, no MacBinary conversion is needed, since the converted file no longer has the double-fork structure of the Mac. Also text-only files (which have no resource fork) need no MacBinary conversion prior to their transfer to the PC, unless they contain non-ASCII characters (accented and other non-English characters, special symbols, etc.) so really in a nutshell, it will have to be converted before it is transferred to the G-mini disc to be able to be read in PC format, you can try searching the net for programs that will convert MAC to PC but i think it will be very difficult to achieve ...hope this helps please vote and comment thanks
