If you have another MAC computer available, you can create a USB key to solve this problem:

If not, I'm afraid you will have to turn to an authorized apple service center. They will do the repair for you.

My ibook G4 has stopped reading my external dvd drive.


If you external DVD drive connects via USB, try rebooting your iBook. (Sometimes a static shock will shut down your USB channel, and only a reboot will reset it.)
If this doesn't work, choose "About This Mac" under the Apple menu, then click on "More Info." Under Hardware, click on USB. See if the drive shows up as one of the attached USB devices. If it does not, the drive or cable may be bad.
If you have another computer available, connect your DVD drive to it. This will tell you whether the drive has failed.

Clearwire driver for Mac not compatable with Power Pc


Depending on the mobile device you are connecting with, as the Franklin Dual Mode 4G+ mobile usb devices are not compatible with any MAC device, you can go to http://www.clear.com/support/download and select the USB Modems tab. Under that tab there will be pictures of all the Clear modems. Select the device you need the software (Clear Connection Manager) for and select the MAC version. The latest version of the CCMs are included. Just make sure before installing that any components of the older versions of the CCM are uninstalled prior to installing the latest version, as the CCM is not a self-overriding program.

Start from scratch. Go back to your main computer and create a USB key and try that way.

Wondering, is your MAc setup for wireless?

Another thought, i had the same issue connecting my Mac to my parents wireless. I used the installation disc and that solved that.

Cannot install software for RangeMax Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter


Did you check the Hardware Compatibility List to make sure that it would work on those computers? Unfortunately, not all brands work together and you should always check to make sure whatever your buying will work with the PC & Operating System you're using.
