Hi.. I am unable to play avi files on my mac os 10. pls help


Here is the guide from macrumors.com personally I recommend the vlc player. I have OS 10 and it works great. Your problem stems from the fact that OS10 has no player that recognizes avi files. Quicktime won't play them. This guide will tell you everything you need to know. If you need more help just let me know.

"-36" error message using Acomdata External Hard Drive


Have you tried taking the files off of the drive and repartitioning and reformatting the drive?
How is the drive formatted? Fat? Fat32 or HPFS? What version of Mac OS are you running? It is possible, depending on the version of the OS and the driver for the OS that it can have problems with drives that have partitions larger than 128 GB. It is also a bios limitation with older systems.
Look to see if there is an updated driver for the OS X version you are running.
Also check in the Disk Utility to see how the drive is partitioned and formatted. If it is going to be a Mac only drive, partition and format it as HPFS. If it is a drive that you will use in Windows as well, use Fat 32 and limit the partitions to 128 GB or less.

You could also try a newer version of OS X like Tiger or Leopard. They are both more stable than older versions and have better support for devices.

Cheers and good luck.

Lacie Hard drive not recognized


If your computer recognized the hard drive before you have installed your last operating sistem(s) that can be the problem. Your operating sistem or BIOS is not seeing your hard drive any more. Installing a new operating sistem is going to solve your problem but try another one, not the operating sistem you used until now.

My Mac laptop running OS X 10.5.5 is not recognizing my Maxtor One Touch 4 Mini 320gb external drive. I plug it in, the light on the drive comes on, but nothing else happens.


check to make sure the drive is formatted to the FAT file system as NTFS file system is not recognised on Macs (check the drive on a PC and have the PC format the drive to the FAT file system)
