It really depends on the age and make of the usb memory stick.
As you are on a new mac it is more than likely usb 2.

Most sticks are formatted for PC usage. Macs can read PC formatted stick but PC cannot read mac. That could slow the mounting time down.

The only thing I can suggest is, if you do not need the stick to transfer data to a PC try reformatting it with the apple disk utility. If that does not sort your problem out it is more than likely a faulty stick. They are quite cheap thees days so you could simply replace it.

Where do you put photo memory card in macbook pro


MacBook Pros before late 2009 contain no SD card slot for the photo memory card to be inserted into. Instead, leave the memory card in the camera, attach the camera via a USB cable and wait for the card to show up on the desktop.

Try removing theSD memory card from your camera and inserting the SD memory card into an USBmemory card reader then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of aworking computer.

Software disc is too small, macbook pro will not accept the disc


Hi, if the Macbook can't read the Mini discs, you can copy the contents of the Mini Disc to any USB Flash Drive by inserting the Mini Disc in any Desktop Computer's CD/DVD Drive. After copying the Mini disc contents to USB Flash Drive you can install in the Macbook pro. var geo_Partner = '843689b9-ba30-459d-9c4b-876924715b22'; var geo_isCG = true;

I want to load my pictures from my camera onto a macbook but do not have the correct cord. i could not find the slot on the macbook to insert the memory chip. any thought


Local electronics and computer shop should stock a USB "Card reader" for many types of memory chips including miniSD. OSX will handle generic mass storage via USB. Make sure you get the right reader for the right memory - SD isn't miniSD isn't microSD, although some readers will do them all.n You should be able to find one for between $7 USD and $35 USD depending on the features and retailer.

16GB USB Memory Stick not readable by Macbook


It's possible it was just subjected to a static shock and got scrambled. As long as the data previously on it was not important to you, you can re-initialize the unit (provided it has not been physically damaged).
In Applications/Utilities, launch Disk Utility. Plug in the USB stick. Choose the stick by name in the left side panel, and click the Partition tab. Choose 1 partition. In Options, choose GUID Partition Table. Click Apply. This should reinitialize your stick.

Macbook won't accept CD's/DVD's in Disk Drive


do you usually lean or put any pressure on the area above the slot-load optical drive? If you have anything flat and plastic around 1/4" (about 1/2 the width as a USB plug) stick it in the optical drive until you just feel it going past the door, and rotate 90 degrees so it opens it a little.
