When I am chatting on Yahoo IM and turn on my internal MacBook webcam, it works for exactly 1 munute and then goes black on the receiving end. Repeatable every time and always exactly 1 minute.


Maybe your internet connection can't handle the amount info being uploaded. ( by this i mean the fact that the cam filming and immediately sending all that over the internet to your chatfriends might be taking just a little bit too much of the upload amount you have.)

maybe it's caused by the Yahoo messenger, or maybe it's just your friends connections that's not heavy enough.

The easiest is to try to deinstall the camera and messenger software, reinstall them and reboot it all...

Hope this is useful, and greetings,

How do I enable the inbuilt webcam on my DELL D430 laptop?

Hi scottie_dorn,
this isn't a webcam, it's an ambient light sensor, I'm afraid. Just to make sure: assuming that you're running a Windows-system, please open the device manager and have a look at "Audio, Video..." whether there is an entry regarding a webcam. I'm pretty sure, there isn't one... Greetings from Germany,
PS: Please don't forget to rate this solution after you've tested it out! Thanks in advance and have a nice day!

I have a 250 Gig WD hard drive originally hooked up to Mac OSX 10.5.6.  I put files on it and then a co-worker looks at those files on a PC. Now, she's given the drive back to me to add more files. These...


files bigger than 4 gigs cannot be save on fat32 drives. NTFS file system is capable of saving files bigger than 4 gigs.

The MAC - to PC did nothing to change it. It did not change while she look it at her pc.

If u want to be able to copy files bigger than 4 gigs to your drive, change the format to ntfs.

  • It is easy to convert partitions to NTFS. The Setup program makes conversion easy, whether your partitions used FAT, FAT32, or the older version of NTFS. This kind of conversion keeps your files intact (unlike formatting a partition). If you do not need to keep your files intact and you have a FAT or FAT32 partition, it is recommended that you format the partition with NTFS rather than convert from FAT or FAT32. Formatting a partition erases all data on the partition and allows you to start with a clean drive. Whether a partition is formatted with NTFS or converted using the convert command, NTFS is the better choice of file system. For more information about Convert.exe, after completing Setup, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER. In the command window, type help convert and then press ENTER.

DSC F55 - Macintosh

I don't think as yet that it is possible to hook up a DSC-F55 via a serial cable to a Mac. And that's a f#$%^ SHAME! So now i'm waiting for a coolpix 950, and there's a long waiting list. The only solution on offer here now (that's Europe i guess) is a pc-card reader for memory sticks, but it restricts you to a powerbook. Boooooh!!! I guess Sony and Apple aren't friends anymore. If anyone disagrees i'd like to know.
