Hi there,

After a bit of confussion by what you mean by 3rd Gen and Aluminum and glass I've decided to give you two guides and you can choose which one you actually mean.

this can happen if your hard drive is gone. Start will reinstallation of mac os from your CD etc. first. if that solves the problem Good!, otherwise change hard drive and reinstall mac os. Third reason why your Mac pro will do this is because of messed up mother board which can only be fixed by your local computer store etc.

I transferred files from one computer on my Firelite to my new Imac. If I try to change file names etc I get a message saying I don't have permission to do that. Why?


The files are secured for each user with certain rights. To change the file names you must be logged into the file owner's account. At that point, you can either change the name or you can change the file's permissions allowing anyone (everyone) full rights.

Got a new imac moved ms office file to my book -


Hi,

Try to change the File system of the hard drive to FAT. It is currently in NTFS. Mac recognizes NTFS file system as read only. You must use the disc utility and format it with a volume format of MS DOS.

By changing it to MS DOS (FAT) you can use it with Mac and PC. Readable and writable.
