Mac OS10 -

My work is interupted every few minutes by my HD window  popping up -  this just started happening and continues after several re-starts  and re-plugs.  This happens from all my software including Safari, Entourage, Photoshop, Illustrator and Quark.

Sounds like may be a stuck key on your keyboard, try unplugging keyboard long enough to see if it continues. If it turns out to be keyboard, try firmly (bang) each of the following keys several times: [Command] [Alt] left [Alt] right [Tab] [O]. Perhaps the function keys as well. I have had this "unstick" the problematic key before on different keyboards. Reconnect keyboard and see if that helps.

How do I reformat a usb on apple mac

Hi Brian

Make sure the drive is plugged into the mac and is power up.
On the Mac, go to the Utilities folder inside the Applications folder.
In there you will find an app called Disk Utility. Launcxh it and wait a moment while it scans your mac for devices (internal and external)
After a few moments it will stop and down the left hand side of the new window you will see a list of all the drives it has found.
It automatically opens to the First Aid tab so while you are here, click on your HD icon in the list and then select the button at the bottom left that says 'Repair Disk Permissions'. This will take anywhere from a minute to 10 minutes depending on how much use the mac has had. A progress bar will show what is going on but it often takes a while to start. When it is finished it will say Permission repair complete and you can then format you USB.
However, you will have seen lots of gobbledegook scrolling past in the window. Don't worry about it - it happens on every mac. It may be a short list or ity could be several hundred lines long, it's just a list of what the repair has done and for most people it can be ignored. Although you don't have to do this to format anything, it'\s a good idea to do it once a month anyway.
Now your USB. You will see it listed near the bottom of the list. Click on it to select it and then go to the tab that says 'Erase'
Make sure the format is set correctly - Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and that you have given it a name then click on the Erase button (next to security options). You will get a few more question which only you can answer then the actual format takes place.

White screen when I turned it on ten minutes ago, still hasn't started. Tried the option-command-p-r. Worked before for a blue screen. Is it working and will start up when it gets done?

Try holding the power button down and keep holding till you hear an extended beep, then allow to start up normally this is like a heavy duty PR zap..... if that dosent work try booting up from your OS10 or techtool dvd holding down the C key during start up if boots from the DVD go to utilities then disk utilities and run it

OS9 icons change on OS10

I had the same thing happen when I switched from os9 to osx. I had to install the programs, Quark, Illustrator, etc. then the icons appearance was normal. You may also have to actually open the program, then open the files themselves before the icons show as normal.

Hope this helps.

''Shut down'' window pops when ever I use Verizon wireless intern

Try starting in Safe Mode and see if the problem occurs.
To start in Safe Mode, hold down the Shift key after you hear the startup chime. Startup will take a bit longer than usual, and you should see the words "Safe Mode" in red lettering at the login screen.

Purch New Spiderman 3 digital camera & cd w/software drivers for Win2000/XP--My computers have Windows Vista & a Mac w/os10? Is there compatable software/drivers ? I would love to upload my sons pics

Take it back and get him a different camera, I hate to tell you that those special pics may never be recovered. I have been looking for help everywhere for this crappy cam and the pics are so bad you can't hardly see anything even in good light. I still have not gotten the software to work at all. It is junk and they need to get them off the shelves I paid 35.00 for my son's and it isn't worth one penny! Sorry that you lost out on such a important historical moment hope you used your camera too.
Good Luck. Mia
