Please check the file extension,

if it's .exe(if no icons show up for the game ), mac may not support it directly, you will have to download cross over chromium from here
www.codeweavers.com/services/ports/chromium/

it doesn't guarantee that the exe will work, since mac uses .app instead of .exe

I have the latest iPod Touch and an old G4 Mac how do i update iTunes on Mac? Is this possible?


I am afraid the latest iTunes version will not run in your G4, also it is not possible to upgrade your G4 to one of the supporting operating system versions.

Macintosh System Requirements

  • Mac computer with an Intel Core processor
  • OS X version 10.6.8 or later
  • 400MB of available disk space
  • Broadband Internet connection to use the iTunes

Alex

Sims 3 wont install onto my powerbook G4


Sims 3 will not run on a mac that isn't using an Intel based processor. You will have to upgrade from a Power-PC processor in order to use the latest version of sims.

Download music to mp3 player from macbook


Generally, MP3 is the most common music file format and can be recognized by all MP3 players, so you'd better download music as .mp3 file extension. I know an excellent tool used to search for and download music to Mac. It is a program running on Mac OS X 10.7 and the later. And it is really the best way to get music downloaded. Download it from the below link. http://anymp3downloader.com/

My mac wont let me update safari and in turn i cant access itunes store


Have you tried going to:

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

to download the latest version of iTunes?

You mentioned Safari, but you'll use iTunes to access the store. If you need the latest version of Safari, go to:

http://www.apple.com/safari/download/

Safari requires at least Mac OS X 10.4.11 (click Apple menu in top, left corner and "About this Mac" to determine your version). iTunes is similar, though it requires 10.5.x and a more powerful computer for some features.

If you don't have at least 10.4, I'd recommend upgrading to it or 10.5, depending on which Mac you have. 10.5 works best on at least PowerPC G5 machines (such as iMac G5) or Intel machines (such as Intel iMac or MacBooks).

Good luck, and please let us know if this worked for you.

While trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.


Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards

Will virtual pc for mac v7 work with powerbook g4 running 10.4.11


Sorry, but the G4 and G5 desktops have chipsets released prior to the Intel agreement allowing pc's with CoreDuo and Macs with DualCore chips to exchange data, even though Virtual PC for G3 through G5 chipsets did work in running MS OS's prior to Vista, including XP, on mac platforms.

Now, if this helps, you might be able to secure an older version of Virtual PC, since your version works on current Macs and PCs with Vista, to run XP on your G4 and G5.

My Mac won't run Call of Duty 4


Run Software Update and update your Mac OS X.
Apple releases updates for Mac, like Vista and Service Packs, but Mac uses Mac OS X 10.5.X and X is the patch.
Usually you wont see any changes because they are security fixes

Yahoo messenger


hi dear

It’s heeeeeeeere!
We know our Mac users have been waiting patiently for a new version of Yahoo! Messenger for Mac. The wait is finally over. Please give a warm welcome to the new Yahoo! Messenger for Mac 3.0 Beta 2. Download it now.
This new version includes:
Tabbed IM windows: When you have two or more conversations going on, they appear as separate tabs in a single window. Less clutter for your desktop! Plus, you can drag a tab out and make it into its own window (or drag it back in to consolidate). Tabbed conversations are a preference, so if you prefer having one window per IM conversation, you still can.
Chat rooms: Yup, the same Yahoo! chat rooms that Windows users have been using are now open to Mac users.
Message archiving: All of your IM and chat room conversations can now be archived on your computer.
Improved stability for webcam and file transfer: There were issues with these in the past version so the team did a lot of bug fixes and under-the-hood work to improve them.
More emoticons: We added in the additional emoticons that are in our other versions of Messenger, so Mac users now have them all!
