Android File Transfer


Hi Kim,
Yikes, an Android phone on an iMac G5...
It is probably an upgrade or an update that was not compatible with the G5 Processor... That machine is going on 10 years old now...

Try connecting it to another computer, a friends or at work, to see of it connects properly... if so, it's end of the line for G5's ;-(

Replace speakers on imac G3 M5521


ifixit.com has wonderful guides. You'll have to take apart the entire case to get to them. Parts should be relatively cheap too, since the machine is so old.

Power mac g5 shows terrible damage in tower from leaking they swear mom board is fine but its hard to believe. are any of the other parts usable for a g3 to g5 imac or g4 powermac or emac


None of the parts are usable in any other machine.
The coolant from a liquid-cooled G5 PowerMac is toxic. If your G5 is leaking, disconnect the power cord IMMEDIATELY. Flush any skin exposed to the fluid with water for at least 15 minutes.
If you want to glove up and extract your hard drive from the machine so as to save your data, do it carefully. Other than that, my recommendation is to bag up the unit and handle it responsibly as toxic waste, using the same guidelines your area uses for antifreeze.

File Sharing between Vista PC and Mac OS X


You're not the only person experiencing this problem. Many PowerPC users who upgraded to QuickTime 7.5 (sometimes even QuickTime 7.3) began to experience widespread stuttering and halting when playing back video. Apparently, these packages contained functionality improvements that simple maxed out the old CPUs.
Unfortunately, there is no generally agreed-upon fix. Since the PowerPC is a dead-end Apple architecture, most people eventually "fix" the problem by upgrading to a current (Intel) model of Macintosh. I wish I had better news for you.

ATI Rage 128 Pro ADC 16MB AGP Video Card


Hello Burnolid,
Well, yes, if you have an AGP PowerMac G4 then any AGP video card will FIT into that AGP port.... The question is to know if that card is Mac Compatible ?
Where did you get the card ? Did you get it our of another mac ? or from someone who got it out of a Mac, then yes, it should be compatible with any Mac with a AGP port.
