Question about Dell 3300MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Unable to play Apple PowerBook Keynote Application slides

My company is a Mac platform office and we train on presentation skills. We brought our Apple 12' PowerBook laptop to a client site that had a ceiling mounted Dell 3300MP projector. The highest resolution available was a 1024 X 640 display and the film clips and slides were not able to be projected on to the screen. Is there a special connector or cable that is needed for use with Mac's or higher level screen resolution needs?

I believe the problem is that your PowerBook does not have the proper drivers for this projector. The maximum resolution on it should be 1600 x 1200, however Dell only certifies this with (and provides drivers for) Windows XP and Vista. I have been unable to find Macintosh drivers for it, and think it unlikely they exist. Without the exact drivers, your computer will find the best match. That usually means you cannot use advanced features, such as higher resolutions, with the projector. Sorry I don't have better news for you. If you perhaps copied your presentation over to a Windows laptop and connected it, it might work. I'm honestly rather disappointed in Dell for not providing Mac drivers for this.

Mac Keynote Video Converter-Split and Join TM90 1080/60p AVCHD MTS to Keynote...

Convert/Join Panasonic HDC-TM90 HD Videos on Keynote for Presentation-AVCHD MTS to MOV <br />Embed/Store Converted/Joined H.264 mov Videos to Keynote '09-Mac TM90 MTS to Keynote Converter <br /><br />I had recorded some .mts videos using Panasonic HDC-TM90 as part of research. I used Keynote to make presentation. I would like to insert the <b>Panasonic TM90 <a href="">HD Videos on Keynote for Presentation</a></b>. However, the resulting HD videos are in AVCHD .mts files which could not be imported to Keynote. With the 1080/60p recording mode, the videos play great on the TM90 camcorder, however, Mac keynote is not compatible with this format, not even iMovie, Final Cut or others. <br /><br />While looking for a solution to add recorded AVCHD videos to Keynote, Aunsoft <b>Final Mate for Mac-<a href="">Best Mac MTS to Keynote Converter</a></b> is recommended as the partner to <b>Panasonic TM90 MTS for Keynote presentation</b>. It helps easily creating a vivid slideshow presentation with HD videos by converting AVCHD video to HD MOV. <br /><br />Below is the quick guide to <b>Embed Panasonic HDC-TM90 AVCHD MTS 1920*1080P videos to a presentation created with Keynote</b>. <br /><br />Step 1: <b>Import/Capture Panasonic TM90 Camcorder AVCHD files to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac</b>. <br />Free Download Final Mate for Mac as a <b><a href="">Mac Keynote Video Converter</a></b>.When Aunsoft <b>Final Mate for Mac</b> is run, it can automatically detect and pop up a wizard for you to capture video from camcorder. The videos would be listed on the "Camcorder" tab. <br /><br />Step 2: Create a Movie for <b>converting TM90 1080/60p MTS files to MOV for Keynote</b>. <br />Just select one or multiple mts video files you would like to convert, cut from the Camcorder tab and then drag and drop them to Movie tab. In this way, a Movie for conversion will be created. <br /><br />Step 3: <b>Splitting and Joining .mts Clips for Keynote on Timeline</b>. <br />To cut/trim the video, just play it and click the Split button when it plays to the frame you want, and then click the" Delete" button next to the "Split" button to remove the unwanted .mts clips. As Final Mate for Mac is frame-accurate cutter, you can also pause the video, and click the Previous Frame or Next Frame for the exact frame you want to cut. <br /><br />To "join" another clip to the end of the movie, just select the file, drag and drop to the movie ID. The files will be joined into one file as output. <br /><br />Step 4: <b>Export H.264 MOV video file for Keynote</b>. <br />Click the Export button and choose HD MOV as output format. Follow HD Video &gt; H.264 HD Video (*.mov) to choose export format for further sharing your presentations by keynote. In this way, all video clips will be merged as one single movie for keynote. <br /><br /><b>Tips:</b> You are free to set/adjust output MOV files parameters (Bit rate - high quailty, Frame rate - 30, Resolution/Size - 1920 x 1080, channel - 5.1 channel) to make a good output quality. <br /><br />After the conversion, I <b>store the mov video on Keynote '09</b>. Drag the <b><a href="">Full HD MTS videos to Keynote on Mac</a></b>,it is easy to display videos on business presentation. <br /><br /><b>Tips</b>: If you want to import and edit Panasonic HDC-TM90 MTS on iMovie and Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro , you can choose the <b>Quicktime Movie Format &gt; Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov)</b> and <b>Final Cut Pro &gt; Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)</b> . AIC and ProrRes was advertised codecs to result in less compression and higher data rate/higher quality files for HD editing in iMovie/Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro.

PowerPoint is a presentation program developed by Microsoft. It is included in the standard Office suite along with Microsoft Word and Excel. The software allows users to create anything from basic slide shows to complex presentations.

PowerPoint is often used to create business presentations, but can also be used for educational or informal purposes. The presentations are comprised of slides, which may contain text, images, and other media, such as audio clips and movies. Sound effects and animated transitions can also be included to add extra appeal to the presentation. However, overusing sound effects and transitions will probably do more to annoy your audience than draw their attention. (Yes, we have all heard the car screeching noise enough times for one lifetime.)

Most PowerPoint presentations are created from a template, which includes a background color or image, a standard font, and a choice of several slide layouts. Changes to the template can be saved to a "master slide," which stores the main slide theme used in the presentation. When changes are made to the master slide, such as choosing a new background image, the changes are propagated to all the other slides. This keeps a uniform look among all the slides in the presentation.

When presenting a PowerPoint presentation, the presenter may choose to have the slides change at preset intervals or may decide to control the flow manually. This can be done using the mouse, keyboard, or a remote control. The flow of the presentation can be further customized by having slides load completely or one bullet at a time. For example, if the presenter has several bullet points on a page, he might have individual points appear when he clicks the mouse. This allows more interactivity with the audience and brings greater focus to each point.

PowerPoint presentations can be created and viewed using Microsoft PowerPoint. They can also be imported and exported with Apple Keynote, Apple's presentation program for the Macintosh platform. Since most people prefer not to watch presentations on a laptop, PowerPoint presentations are often displayed using a projector. Therefore, if you are preparing a PowerPoint presentation for a room full of people, just make sure you have the correct video adapter.

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.

This is the message you see when a version of OS X has been installed on a Mac that needs a later version of OS X at minimum, or when the custom gray install disc for one model of Mac has been used to initialize another model of Mac.
You posted this under "iBook G4," and the platform in the error messages says "PowerBook." Provided you posted in the right place, that confirms the above diagnosis.
Initialize your iBook with the proper gray disc, or a retail OS X installation disc, and it will operate properly.

I am trying to transfer a file to an external hard drive from a Mac Powerbook G4. I get an error code 8065 and I am unable to copy the file.

8065 refers to a cross-platform error (like between a p/c system and a mac system).
You could try copying your file to a cd and burn the cd to be compatible with pc or mac and then transfer to the other system.
