Screen Refreshes Every 15-30 Seconds Without Being Asked To

If I'm copying a folder from another hardrive, server or memory stix nothing copies over because it closes up the folder when it 'refreshes' before the transfer is completed. Needless to say it makes transferring files more than a bit difficult.
Software documents will remain open...i.e. Quark. Computer does not 'crash' or need a restart. 

I recently updated Quicktime, Jave & a Security Update. Have had problems ever since. 
Any ideas?

Sounds like, first off, go to Apple, download those updates from there (not thru Software Update) and reapply them -- and have no other apps running while you do, and don't do anything on computer while install is going on.
Then repair permissions after (machine will restart once or twice.) Wouldn't hurt to reset PRAM as well. 
Security Updates are notorious this way!
Good luck.

Save or move something to the SD card


Here are the steps to copy something from the internal memory to the SD card:
  1. Use the File Manager app, and select the internal memory (second icon from the left at the top of the screen).
  2. Select the file you want to copy, and keep your finger on it for several seconds until the 'File Operations' menu pops up.
  3. Select 'Copy File'. Near the top of the screen a small message will show in red, saying 'Holding [file name]".
  4. Select the SD card (third icon from the left at the top of the screen) and the folder where you want to save the file. Keep your finger on the folder name for a few seconds until the 'File Operations' menu pops up.
  5. Scroll down the 'File Operations' menu until 'Paste into Folder' appears, and tap it.
  6. You should see a success message.

You can move or copy things from the SD card to the internal memory also.

I am trying to copy photos from photo booth to the external hardrive and i cant error 36 always pops up


Launch Terminal (Applications > Utilities) and type the following command, making sure to include a space at the end:
dot_clean

Select the folder on your Mac that is giving you trouble and drag it right to the Terminal window. A green cursor with a + symbol should appear before you release the mouse.
The path to that folder should have automatically appeared at the end of the Terminal command. For example, it might look like:
dot_clean /Users/UserName/Desktop/Test_Folder

Press Enter/Return to run the command. It will appear as if nothing happened, but try copying that folder to your external HD (for example). Finder should magically allow it to be moved with no problem!
Repeat the entire process as needed for other folders that won't copy.

In Outlook 2003, I want to export my functional mailbox, all it's directories folders, folders and subfolders, e-mails included in those folders with their attachments in some cases in them and also,...


Hi Tony.

A microsoft server folder is meant to be exported to a computer with Microsoft Exchange installed. That is useful only if the The Outlook Address Book and folders are kept in an Exchange Server mailbox on original computer.

Export as PST and choose the include subfolder option even if you export to Microsoft Exchange.If the Outlook profile on the new computer has a Microsoft Exchange Server and you want to keep all of your data on the just copy the folders from the new .pst file to a location under Mailbox - Your Name in computer with MS Exchange server.

Simply choose export folder to a pst. Ensure that you have ticked that box that say include subfolders, or subfolders won't be copied.

Here the step by step:

I HAVE 2004 SILVER PSP CFW 5.50. HOW DO I PLAY DOWNLOADED GAMES ON IT. WHAT SOFTWARE TO INSTALL AND HOW?


Hi. First, you have to format your memory card so that the required folders will be automatically created.

On your PSP, go to Settings>>System Settings>>Format Memory Stick. Select YES when asked if you really want to format your memory stick. Wait for a few seconds & once prompted that it's done, you can now grab your USB cable and plug your PSP to a computer.

Go to Settings>>USB Connection. Your computer will detect the memory stick as an external drive. Once connected, navigate to your PSP's memory card directory via Windows Explorer. You should see an "ISO" folder. Open this and copy your downloaded games here (.iso or .cso file).

Safely remove the USB connection once done. Navigate to your "Games" on the PSP and the copied game will appear.

Hope this helps.

I am trying to burn a disk with my Dell 4300 Computer. When I in


1) Insert a Blank CD-R into your CD Drive and push the button to close the door.
2) Wait a moment for the What do you want Windows to do? box. If
this box does not appear, you can open the Windows Explorer by
double-clicking the My Documents icon or the My Computer icon
on your Desktop.
3) When asked What do you want Windows to do?, click Open
writable CD folder using Windows Explorer.
4) Once the Windows Explorer opens, click on the link on the left that
says My Documents to get to your My Documents folder.
5) To copy everything in the My Documents folder to CD, click Edit
and then click Select All. All the folders and documents on the
right will be selected.
a) Note: If you only want to copy certain files/folders to CD, hold the Ctrl
key on your keyboard to select only the files / folders that you want to copy.
6) Once your files are selected, click Copy the selected items on the
task pane on the left side of the window. (If you do not see these
words on the left, click the Folders button once.)
7) When the Copy Items box appears, select the CD Drive (D:) and
click Copy.
8) Once the files are finished copying, you will see a balloon in the
bottom right corner of your screen saying that You have files
waiting to be written to the CD.
9) If you are only copying you’re My Documents folder to CD, you
can click that yellow balloon to complete the CD burning process.
Note: If you do not see that balloon, wait a few more moments. If you still
do not see it, click on the My Computer link on the task pane on the left,
then double-click the D: drive. Then proceed with the next step.
10) Clicking the balloon will bring you to the D: drive and you will see
2
the files you have copied under the Files Ready to Be Written to the CD section.
11) On the left, click Write these files to CD.
12) You will be asked to type a CD name. This simply gives the CD a name and is optional (16-
character limit).
13) Click Next.
14) When the CD Writing Wizard is complete, your CD will be ejected and you will see a box telling
you that you have successfully written the files to the CD. Click Finish.
15) To ensure that the files have been successfully written to the CD, insert the CD again and wait a
moment. The CD and its contents should appear on your screen after a few seconds.
You can continue to copy files to this CD until the CD is full. When the CD is full, you will be told so by
Windows. CD’s cannot be erased. Once a file is copied to a CD, it is permanently there.
The files that you have copied to CD are Read-Only. This means that you cannot make changes to a
file on the CD and save those changes directly back to the CD. If you want to change a file on the CD,
you must open the file, save it to your PC’s hard drive (My Documents or Desktop folders are
recommended), then follow the steps above to copy the file back to the CD, clicking Yes when asked if
you want to replace the file on the CD with the new one.

Using dvd drive makes makes sounds


There is nothing wrong with your laptop. If you are copying a cd and trying to play music at the same time, you are pushing the processor power of your laptop or low on memory. When copying a cd it should rip it without sound to your hardrive, so i assume that your are playing music from your hardrive as well as ripping and this model of laptop i think comes standard with a 1.3ghz processor with 512mb of memory, which can easily be drained when ripping or burning.
