Trouble downloading songs from G-3 I phone to powerbook g4


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

If you are experiencing issues with downloading songs from iPhone 3G to your Powerbook G4, there are a few steps you need to check:
Make sure your Mac OS X operating system version is up to date. The most current updates for the current 3 most common Mac OS systems out today: Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger: Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Current version) Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard: Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Current version) Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Mac OS X 10.6.6 (Current version)
If your present version of Mac OS X does not match the current version update listed above for your system, then click on the Apple menu icon in the upper left corner of your screen and select "About this Mac" to verify. • Then close that window and click on the Apple menu icon once again and select Software Updates andrun the updates.
• Once your Mac OS X has been updated to the most current version, then you will need to visit the link below, then download and install the current version iTunes Link: Download iTunes 10 for Mac (for 10.5 Leopard or higher) Link: Download iTunes 9.2.1 for Mac (for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or earlier)
• When you have the current version of iTunes on your Powerbook, then commence to connect your iPhone 3G with your Powerbook and sync your iPhone with iTunes.
I am providing these initial steps to you, due to the limited information I have from you regarding your technical issue, but will be glad to assist you further, if you are unable to resolve your issue with these provided steps.
I hope this helps.

How to Add Life and Pep to an iMac G3


The old iMac G3 desktop was an excellent machine in its day. Today, it can still be a great little computer to scoot around the Internet, create graphics, manipulate photos, and do schoolwork or almost any other use you can imagine.

If you haven’t already upgraded to OS X 10.4 (Tiger), you should deeply consider doing this. Currently, this version of the Mac operating system is the earliest still being supported by major browsers, and is the newest that works well on the iMac G3. If you can’t upgrade to Tiger, consider using Panther (OS X 10.3).

After you update your operating system, download the latest version of your favorite browser. Remember; Microsoft stopped including Macintosh in its updates of Internet Explorer when Mac launched Safari, so all Mac versions are sorely out of date. Firefox, Opera, Camino and, of course the default Mac browser, Safari, are the best browsers for your iMac. If you can only use Panther, the Opera browser is the only one still including Panther in updates. Also, if you enjoy using Yahoo! Messenger, Panther and earlier are not supported by Yahoo! Messenger either. Unfortunately, time has marched on. You can, however, use the web version of Yahoo! Messenger through your browser.

Update your software using the Software Update feature found in the System section of the System Preferences dialog box. Changes to Java, QuickTime and other frequently used components have more than likely occurred since your OS was created and updates are important to keeping your machine running on today’s web.

Replacing your CPU is not suggested due to the difficulty level, but a quick fix of RAM can give your elderly machine a big boost of energy. The later G3’s can handle 1 GB of SDRAM, just use two 512 MB sticks. You can find these for a good price on eBay.

Once you have all these upgrades and updates, your little iMac will be the fierce web adventurer it once was. Happy computing!

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

The "human face" icon is an indication that your hard drive is not being recognized by your iMac G3 because the hard drive is not formatted to read the Mac OS 9 software.

What you need to do is initialize your hard drive so you can
it can read the Mac OS 9.0.4 software.

Below, I have provided a link with simple steps to properly initialize (format) your 40GB hard drive

Initializing a hard disk, cartridge, or optical disk

Follow these steps and you will be able to successfully install Mac OS 9.0.4 to your Mac G3 hard drive.

I hope this helps.

This is a question from a friend of mine who recently was given a used imac. Any ideas what he can try doing? when I plug it in and turn it on I get a grey screen with a little icon in the middle (looks...


What your friend is seeing, is an indicator that the Mac 333 Mhz, is not able to boot up to recognizable Mac OS volume. This means that Mac OS volume is either damaged or has some how been corrupted.

Apple advises the only fixes for such an issue with this class of their "legacy computer" series is to back up the data on the hard drive if possible and reinstall the Mac OS version is was operating with, or simply go a step further and upgrade to the highest version of the Mac OS X family of operating systems, that this iMac G3 qualifies for.

Here is a link from Apple support for resolving this issue for this legacy mode;
Macintosh starts up to Grey Screen

If your friend is interested in knowing what is the highest version of Mac OS X he can install on his iMac 333,, it would be Mac OS X 10.3 Panther.

This version is the highest upgrade for the iMac 333 because Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger will only work with Macs that have a built-in Firewire port.

Here is the technical specifications link from Apple for this model:
Technical Specifications - iMac 333 Ghz (1999)

This should help.

APPLE IMAC G4 - TRYING TO INSTALL OS WITHOUT DISK EJECT BUTTON


Reastart the iMac and at the same time hold down the mouse left click button. If that does not work.
  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key combination Command-Option-O-F.
    Note: The Command key has the Apple and (commandkeysymbol.gif) icons on it.
  3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to Open Firmware."
  4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
  5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the action is complete.
  6. Type: mac-boot
  7. Press Return.

I inherited an imac g3.....


That Mac will run 10.4 Tiger, but I would recommend 10.3 Panther. You can download all updates through sofware update after the install is complete. You should be able to find installer disks on eBay for cheap.

IMac very unstable on 10.4.11


The disk utility program is the key. You need to run the app to repair disk permissions. You may have to start up from the installer disk for Tiger to get access to the program.
