Why does my nexxtech usb 2 0 data link cable not connect between a WD MyCloud and a MacBook Air


This cable you have is only for transferring data from one computer to another. To transfer data to this drive you must do so over the network or by loading your content onto a USB drive then connecting the USB drive up to the USB port on the WD MyCloud and using the MyCloud app to copy the data from the USB drive to the internal storage of the MyCloud drive. See the link below for more information. WD My Cloud Direct USB Transfer and SSH Access

Flashing folder when i turn on mac


Your hard drive may have crashed or it's settings have changed so it is no longer recognized as a startup (boot) drive. Try starting from your original operating system CD. (or borrow one). Press the C button at power up to force your computer to start from the CD.
Once started, don't install the operating system. Go to the pull down menu's and select Disk Utility. If Disk Utility sees your hard drive, select it and run the repair disk program. If it doesn't see it, your hard drive has likely crashed. You will have to replace it, install a new copy of the operating system, and likely have lost all your data and documents. This is where I would start.

My startup disk is full


Get an external storage device. If you don't have a lot of money, get the biggest USB flash drive you can afford; otherwise get a USB or network drive at least as big as the drive in your computer. If you can get a big drive, run Time Machine to back up the computer to it.

The following directions assume you are unable to do a full backup. If you did the backup, you may ignore the copy instructions, and just do the deletes. Next, open your (username) Downloads folder, and dump everything you don't recognize. Go to (username) Documents, and copy everything you want to keep, but don't expect to use for a while, to the flash drive. Delete all of those items after they are copied. Delete anything you are sure you don't need to keep. Repeat this process in the (username) Movies folder. Note: if you have movies stored on the laptop, this is where you will get the greatest space gain. The Pictures folder is the next one to clean out - picture files are typically large, although not nearly the size of movies. Finally, open your web browser(s) and empty the cache (for Safari, the keyboard shortcut is command-option-E, otherwise look in the application-name menu between the Apple and File menus).

It's a bit of a chore, but not as hard as cleaning out a garage, and much cheaper and easier than taking apart the computer to put in a bigger drive, especially if you have one of the new machines with a flash drive soldered to the logic board.

Clone mac drive


As an alternative, you can try making a new Time Machine backup from the files of the old HDD. Install Mavericks from scratch on the SSD and then transfer the documents needed back from the Time Machine.

I would recommend installing fresh OS X when upgrading from HDD to SSD anyway.

Here is how to make a bootable USB stick for installing Mavericks:

Cannot transfer folders from Vista to MACBOOK


Get a USB drive that is big enough to hold the files and folders that you want to transfer, and move them from the vista machine to the MB. Then move the USB drive to the MB and copy them off the USB drive to the macbook.If you are already trying to do it this way, please specify at what point it is failing, and what error message you are receiving.

I recently purchased a macbook pro and would like to transfer my music from my pc to my mac. I have downloaded itunes 9 but can't figure out how to transfer the music from a flashdrive to itunes since...


There are several ways to do this. You can follow the instructions in the following article to back up your iTunes library on CD/DVD:

Alternatively, you can use your iPod classic to transfer your music as per the instructions in the following article:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1329

You can also transfer the contents of your iTunes library via a flash drive or external drive, simply copy My Documents / iTunes to your external hard drive / flash drive, transfer it to your Mac, and then drag and drop the entire iTunes folder onto the iTunes icon in the dock and it will automatically import all of your songs, settings, and playlists.

I am trying to transfer a file to an external hard drive from a Mac Powerbook G4. I get an error code 8065 and I am unable to copy the file.


8065 refers to a cross-platform error (like between a p/c system and a mac system).
You could try copying your file to a cd and burn the cd to be compatible with pc or mac and then transfer to the other system.

How to sync an IBook G4 wth a Mac 1 Ghz Power PC G4


Transferring you iPhoto Library requires the same version of iPhoto on each. Then you can just move the "package" from one to the other. It appears as a package in the latest versions but inside is a directory hierarchy. Older versions used the file system for this. The package keeps you from messing with the files and internal links. Depending on your collection you may need a real disk and not just a flash drive.
To transfer the photos themselves only requires exporting from one machine and importing on the other. However, you then lose any comments, folders, and anything but the photos. You may want to be sure to send the copy with red-eye correction... or you will have to do it again. Do it a folder at a time. -Ken

Screen Refreshes Every 15-30 Seconds Without Being Asked To


Sounds like, first off, go to Apple, download those updates from there (not thru Software Update) and reapply them -- and have no other apps running while you do, and don't do anything on computer while install is going on.
Then repair permissions after (machine will restart once or twice.) Wouldn't hurt to reset PRAM as well. 
Security Updates are notorious this way!
Good luck.

Flash drive failure


You need to format your drives. Even though you delete files on them a small amount of data remains each time. After so long the data builds up and clogs the drive.

Insert a USB with a problem
Go applications, Disk utility
open disk utility, then you should see the USB disk in the utility screen. click on then click format. It will kill all data on the USB and make it usable again.
