    audio out is great - if I use the internal mic in other programs such as yahoo chat  or messenger (on the mac) - it is fine too.  Sees as though the problem is with paltalk but I really dont believe that.  


    When I open my mixer - the microphone IN vertical slide is in ghost - all of the other slides are in green.  So is this something to do with bootcamp / or mac dont like the soundboard mic in and will not see or accept it.

Hi there
you will have to set the mic up properly with the system, go to the control panel and select "sounds" to set up the microphone's different audio levels

kind regards and Merry Christmas

Check out the volume settings first and increase it as much you require.and also check out the wiring connections and instead of that program try listening any songs or audio from that same speaker to confirm the exact fault.

Check if this also happens with an external driver.

    Check if this also happens with an external microphone. If you don't get the bad sound using an external mic, then the connection to the mic is shorted, and the mac must be taken apart to fix the problem.

    If the problem persist using an external mic, that means that the audio controller is bad, or the software recording software has a problem. Solution is trying to reinstall Mac OS, if that does not work, your MAc audio chipset is faulty.

    In this case you have two choices, either you replace MAC motherboard, or you buy an external audio adapter, like this one:Amazon.com: External 5.1 USB 3D Audio

Memory issues... you need to add more memory to your system and also get rid of any spyware as it will slow down your system... i recommend spybot s&d for that... as well defragging your system will often help as well

Will Virtual PC for mac v7 work with an new iMac (Mac OS X, Version 10.5.7)?


Basically, if your new iMac has the new Intel processor (or any Intel based processor Macs) your Virtual PC v7 will not work on it. It is designed for iMacs/Macs that are not Intel Based machines (that run on the Motorola processors like the G3, G4 lines, etc).
All Intel based iMacs/Macs are capable of running Windows using a Dual boot startup that is available at the Mac Store or online. Check the Apple website for instructions, they are always updating the software. :)

My G4 1.25ghz with 1 gb ram plays abc video slow.


Hello, sorry you are having trouble,
There are so many variables when it comes to Video play back on a Mac..
Yea, 1.25 Ghz with 1 GB of Ram answers most questions, yea, it should play OK,
BUT:
  • Is the video on a CD or DVD ? well, these iMacs don't have a very fast optical drive.
  • How much room do you have on your internal hard Drive, if it's too full ( more than 80% full ) then you will suffer read/write performance.
  • Is the video on an external harddrive, is it a USB drive? the USB on the iMac G4 is USB 1.1, 11Mbit/sec, way too slow to play a big video smoothly.
  • Just what is the size of the video, is it like that for all of them or just one, might it be a HD video with high frame rates?
  • What version of the MacOS X do you have installed? If you installed Leopard 10.5 on the iMac G4, nothing will run smoothly,
  • Are you playing this video over a network? forget it it's got to be on the internal or a FireWire external disk otherwise it will stagger...
Well, there you go, I know, it's so easy to say Hey man, just get a new Mac and everything will be fine... But that machine is going on 6 years old now, Video technology has not stood still.....

Videos play slow and choppy but sound is ok


The video is choppy because your computer is not powerful enough to decode the video. The imac g3 was a great computer in its day but it was never designed to run the graphically intensive programs of today. OS 10.4 already places a lot of demands on an older machine. Adding youtube video only exasperates the problem as there simply isn't enough processing power or memory to run the pretty aqua user interface of OS 10.4 and decode video at the same time.

Adding more ram may help (256 MB is not very much these days) but truth be told I don't think you will see much of an improvement given the low power of the G3 processor. Sorry to say it, but if you want to watch flash videos (youtube) with any level of reliability you are going to have to look for a newer machine. You probably could find a used imac g5 for a good price on ebay or maybe treat yourself to a new imac. Rumour has it Apple will be coming out with a new model in the next few days (weeks) so keep on eye out for that if your thinking of buying new.

Imac Leopard drivers?


Hi,
the reader could be faulty if it,s not being recognised by the imac. unless it has an alternative On/Off power switch.
try plugging into a different port ( if there is One ) or see if it is recognised by a device manager.
Alternative is to go to Jasco products and see if an updated driver is on thier site.
