How to Speed up a Slow Mac


Apple Mac computers can also become slow and sluggish with time and use. So here I will show you four methods to speed up your old-slow-mac.

Method 1: Free up hard drive space
You might have stored many huge video files, thousands of photos and music tracks on our Mac computer. The popularity of using solid-state drives (SSDs) of Mac computers means considerably less capacity than traditional hard drives.

1. Find the large media files on your Mac, delete the unused videos, apps, photos, etc. Or you can move all of them to an external hard drive, and remove them from your Mac.

2. Empty your trash cans, say the user account's main trash can and the iPhoto/iMovie/Mail trash can.

3. Remove junk files from your old Mac, MacClean is the way to go. It helps removing Internet junk, user junk, system junk and application junk on your hard drive.http://www.imobie.com/macclean/

Method 2. Free up more RAM

Most Macs ship with between 4GB and 16GB of RAM. If your Mac has only 4GB or 8GB RAM, the system might be running low when launching programs or loading document.
Step 1. Open up Terminal: ~/Applications/Utilities.
Step 2. Enter the command: Purge, and tap the enter tab.
Step 3. Give your Mac a minute or two to complete the process.
Open up Activity Monitor to see the before and after results, you'll find the Free size increases in System Memory.

Method 3. Kill Unwanted login items

Step 1. Open up System Preferences, and click the Users & Groups.
Step 2. Click the Login Items tab, and you'll see a list of apps that open every time you turn on Mac.
Step 3. Select the login items you want to kill, and click the "-" button to remove them.

Method 4. Clean up your desktop

1. Delete the files you don't need any more, and empty the Trash.
2. Classified the files on your mac, and move them to some folders.
3.Name the folder so that you can easily find the one you need. Why Is My Mac So Slow and How to Fix It

How to burn AVCHD Lite to DVD on Mac OS X?


AVCHD-Lite, which is a subset of the AVCHD format popularized by hard disk camcorders from Sony, Panasonic, and Canon, uses h.264 video coupled with AAC audio for recording movies. AVCHD Lite video is currently used by Panasonic DMC-ZS3, Panasonic DMC-FZ3, Sony, Cannon AVCHD Lite Camcorder, etc.
26b78f7afa860b1f_2_197_.jpg The main differences between AVCHD Lite and the regular AVCHD: a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720p in AVCHD Lite compared to 1920 x 1080p in regular AVCHD and a less-intensive compression method - both of which make the format more suitable for less powerful camera hardware.
What you need to burn AVCHD Lite to DVD on Mac OS X?
Neither of AVCHD and AVCHD Lite video is directly supported by iMovie or iDVD on Mac OS(10.6.3 Snow Leopard included) if you want to burn AVCHD Lite to DVD. There are 3rd-party solutions that work with varying degrees of success in allowing you to work with AVCHD Lite video on Mac, like Daniusoft DVD Creator for Mac . It is DVD Burner that can convert AVCHD Lite video to DVD. With it, you can add DVD menu, edit videos and pictures, add transitions and effect, etc.

Below is the step by step guide on how to burn AVCHD to DVD on Mac OS X
Step 1. Load files Just click “+” button to import AVCHD Lite files to this program or simply drag and drop them to it. And rearrange the file list by using the up-down arrows.
Tips: You can freely drag and drop the thumbnail to merge or split the video files.
Step 2. Edit files (Optional) To personalize your DVD files, you can edit the video files by clicking “Edit” button. For video files, you can crop the frame size, trim into several clips, append effects, add picture/text watermark and rotate.
Step 3. Create DVD Menu (Optional) This Mac DVD Creator also allows you to create your own DVD menu with rich selections of DVD menu template. Simply click “Menu” button to select one and set the “Frame”, “Button” and “Text” to customize your DVD menu.
Step 4. Start to burn After all necessary settings, you need to insert a blank or rewritable disc to your Mac if you want to burn video files on DVD disc. Or you can simply convert the videos to DVD folder, .dvdmedia or ISO file on your Mac for later burning.
That is it! Within several clicks, you can burn AVCHD lite to DVD easily. So, why not download Daniusoft DVD Creator for Mac for a try?

How do I recover lost data?


If the computer won't even turn on its most likely a non-hard drive issue, which is a GOOD thing. Your lost itunes data can be successfully recovered by following these steps:

--uninstall or remove the current hard drive (on the broken computer) ---buy an external casing that fits your type of hard drive (take old hard drive with you to store or write down the name and model number to insure you are picking the correct case).
--connect the old hard drive into the new external case
--connect external case to a working computer through a USB input.
--find and explore the old hard drive on new computer screen,
--locate itunes folder
--copy the entire itunes folder or choose which files you want from the old hard drive and paste in itunes folder on the working computer and you are done.

If you are not computer savvy, unsure about what a hard drive might even be or just don't feel like doing it yourself the above solution can be done by Staple's or have The Geek Squad have a go at it.

Good luck and hope this helps you !

How to rotate a video from vertical to horizontal from a HTC sensation 4g to a Mac computer was recorded holding the phone wrong way.


source: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/rotate-video-files-mac-pc/ Rotate Video On Mac OS XThis tutorial works the same for iMovie '08 and iMovie '09. If you're still stuck with iMovie '06, you'll need to use a third-party plug-in.
Another point of conflict is the video format. Some of the more obscure ones, like 3GP, aren't supported. A shame, because these are actually used quite regularly for mobile compression. For these files, you'll first need to convert them to another file format. This can be done in QuickTime X, via File -> Save for Web.
Alternatively, you can use a third-party file converter like ReduxEncoder, or an online convertion tool like Zamzar.

imovie1.jpgUse File -> Import Movies... to select your converted video. iMovie will analyze the video and generate thumbnails, so this can take a few minutes for larger video files.

imovie2.pngBefore we're able to use the video, you'll need to add it to your Project Library from your Event Library. Just make sure you select the whole clip, and drag it over to the other side of the screen.

imovie3.jpgNow deselect the clip from your Event Library, and select the copy in the Project Library. To rotate your video, open the Crop menu, make sure it's set to 'Fit', and use the rotate buttons. When you're sattisfied, press Done.

imovie4.jpgYou'll notice that you're video has now been rotated in your Project Library. To export it, go to Share -> Export Movie... or press cmd+E.

imovie5.pngAs with Windows Live Movie Maker, you can also upload your rotated movie directly to YouTube, or your personal MobileMe Gallery.

How to convert MTS and M2TS files to QuickTime for editing in iMovie Trace back...


How to convert MTS and M2TS files to QuickTime for editing in iMovie

imovietheme100402.jpg

Trace back to iMovie'08, Apple has announced that this bundled video editing software works with many tapeless camcorders that record to HDD, flash memory, or DVD media, including camcorders using MPEG-2 (standard definition) and AVCHD (high definition) formats. With the release of iMovie'09, it expands supported camcorder formats from MPEG-2 (standard definition), AVCHD (high definition) to MPEG-4 and H.264 formats. However, it does not mean that iMovie will be an all-pass application to any sort of camcorders and cameras. Due to the wide range of media types and the different ways manufacturers store videos on these media types, Apple has reminded users that not all tapeless camcorders are compatible with iMovie'08 and iMovie'09. AVCHD camcorders which capture footages in the format of .mts/m2ts are among this range to some extent.

To make it possible for Mac users to edit MTS/M2TS files shot by AVCHD cameras in iMovie, this guide will provide a solution to the problem of how to convert MTS/M2TS files to QuickTime on Mac for editing in iMovie.

What you will need is Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac. Read on the following contents to find out a step-by-step instruction.

mtstotal100402.jpg

Step 1: Click "Add" button to import MTS/M2TS files to this program

Step 2: Select QuickTime (*.mov) as output format for iMovie

Click on the drop-down list of "Format", and follow "Common Video" > "MOV-QuickTime (*.mov)".

quicktime100402.jpg

Step 3: Set advanced settings

Click on "Settings" button, and afterwards you can adjust audio and video parameters including video/audio codec, resolution, video/audio bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel on the following window.

settings100402.jpg

By the way, if you’d like to combine all the added files to be as a single file, you can tick the checkbox "Merge into one file" to realize it. Also, if you do not want to use the default save path, you can click "Browse" button to look for and specify a destination folder.

Step 4: Convert

After the above steps are done, you can click "Convert" button to start conversion. And you can click "Open" button to get the generated QuickTime .mov files effortlessly. Afterwards, just import the output files to iMovie for editing. Click here to see How to edit videos in iMovie.

Additional Tips:

1. The program adopts advanced audio and video sync technology, and never lets your video and audio go in separate way.

2. This program optimizes its conversion speed with multi-thread technology, so that you can convert MTS/M2TS AVCHD files 1.5 or 2 times faster than other similar programs.

3. Its trim and crop functions allow you to select the proper time length for MTS/M2TS videos, as well as cut off any unwanted areas.

4. It Provides users with simple gauss blur effect, which is very useful to recorded files, since it can eliminate the noise of recorded videos. If you like, you can also add other special effects including simple laplacian sharpen, gray, flip color, invert, aged film, etc. to your video files.

5. It allows users to add various watermarks, such as text watermark, image watermark, GIF animation watermark and video watermark.

Can i download from the internet onto my laptop and then to my phone without using a usb cable?


Yes! you can download your files to your laptop as normal, then connect your laptop and phone via a bluetooth connection... The bluetooth menu is next to the airport menu on the desktop.
Simply set your laptop and phone to communicate (similar to setting up a bluetooth headset). Then look on the desktop for a drive or folder icon with your phone name. then install the files in the correct folder.

How do i back up a power book g4? What application do I need to do the back up?


Suchisart,
If you want a stand alone backup solution, you can download a free program called "Carbon Copy Cloner" and purchase a USB 2.0 external hard drive. You can use the CCC software to backup the entire contents of your Powerbook's hard drive or just selected files to the external USB hard drive.

If your Powerbook is unable to boot into OS X and you need to recover the files that are on the internal hard drive, you can boot the Powerbook into "Target Disk Mode" and transfer the files via firewire cable to another Mac. To do this do the following.
  1. With both Macs off connect them with a firewire cable.
  2. Turn on the Powerbook and hold down the "T" during startup.
  3. Once the large icon shows up on screen your in "TDM".
  4. Turn on the other Mac and login to your account.
  5. The Powerbook's hard drive should mount on your desktop.
  6. You'll be able to transfer your files from the Powerbook's hard drive just like you would an external hard drive, thumb drive, etc.

Don't forget to vote and leave us some feedback. :)

How to save data from hard drive off my apple power book g4


You can drag and drop your files on to an external hard drive or USB flash drive, burn the files to CD/DVD using an application called toast - you will need a CD/DVD writer to do that. If you can find one, you can save your files to a zip disk.
