Flashing folder when i turn on mac


Your hard drive may have crashed or it's settings have changed so it is no longer recognized as a startup (boot) drive. Try starting from your original operating system CD. (or borrow one). Press the C button at power up to force your computer to start from the CD.
Once started, don't install the operating system. Go to the pull down menu's and select Disk Utility. If Disk Utility sees your hard drive, select it and run the repair disk program. If it doesn't see it, your hard drive has likely crashed. You will have to replace it, install a new copy of the operating system, and likely have lost all your data and documents. This is where I would start.

Macbook A1181 black take the Snow Leopard DVD but wont boot from it. Ejecting it. (the drive is working) and pressing C dont force it to boot from the DVD.


When you start up your computer, hold down the option key. This will bring up the bootable devices menu. Depending on wether or not you have an Operating System installed, you should see either 1 or more icons. Click on the one with the CD icon that should be labeled "Snow Leopard". Once you have clicked on the icon, click the arrow beneath it and your Mac will boot off the OS CD.

Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book


You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:
  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.

I have a new Macbook Air. It was working fine till yesterday. Today when i switched it ON, it is not booting. There is a blue screen and that is it...


Turn it on and let it boot as far as it can. Insert the system DVD that came with the machine. Hold down the "C" key and reboot (this will force it to boot from the optical drive - i.e., the DVD/CD). You should then come to the setup screen. From there, re-install the operating system.

Macbook wont work with freecom dvd lightscibe pro firewire


Hi:


I know exactly how you feel, since the lightscribe feature is great, but the lightscribe software is pc and not mac compatible, though the burner will work up til that point in the process on a mac.

I solved the problem by using an external dvd burner on a spare pc which will accommodate the installation software for lightscribe and burn and create and decorate the dvd.

I have yet to try a possible solution involving a Core Duo and combo Mac/PC Operating system since I still use an old iBook G4 to create videos but if your Macbook will accommodate both types of OS then you might try using the lightscribe software installation disk on your macbook in pc mode as a windows application.

Let me know if that works for you

3inch cd into macbook dvd rom


Since Macs are not compatible with 3' cd's the only way it could work is if you had an external cd drive. You can even get them cheap! Here is a link to one on a website. I never used this website to purchase anything but its just to show you what you might consider looking for!

I personally hate how macs are not compatible with 3 inch cds but I hope this helps you out and good luck!

Dvd rom problems with my macbook


Does the computer immediately return the discs after they're inserted or do you have to manually eject them? If it's trying to read the discs then there could be a problem with the type of disc. However if it just ejects the disc immediately, there could be a recognition problem. So, if your computer doesn't recognize that a disc is in the drive, you can check several things. 1. Check to see that the computer actually reads DVDs. To do this, open the System Profiler in the Utilities folder. Click on ATA/Devices and Volumes/Disc Burning. Those are three different options but each will tell you if the drive actually does run DVDs. If it shows DVDRW or DVD, but if it only shows CD or CD-RW, then it won't play a DVD. 2. If it shows that it accepts DVDs through the System Profiler, then you'll need to check to see if the actual drive is attached. You can open your computer through the battery with a screw driver. Once open, you'll need to check the connecting cable to the drive. If it's attached properly/securely, you may need to take it to a technician. The drive me be malfunctioning and need professional repair.

My Mac wont work. blinking Folder with "?"


Another alternative is to hold the "option" key as the Mac boots up to force it to recheck possible blessed start-up disks. If your hard disk drive shows up, select it. When it boots into OS X, immediately back up your data and restart the Mac with the OS X DVD (or CD) Install Disk. When you're in the boot menu from the OS X Install Disk, select "Utilities" then "Repair drive" and select your HDD. That should help OS X repair any file permissions or data corruption that may have occurred. I would also look into getting a new HDD. It seems to me that your current one may be failing and need replacement.
