Re: stereo connection

2 options. It depends on whether you're using it for playback or recording. Keep in mind the signal is only as good as the file. So if, youre playing mp3 that are 128k, its realy not going to sound that great. YOu can run a stereo 1/8 m ( headphone ) to stereo 1/8 m, but make sure its not longer than 6ft. Also you can spend about $40 on something called an Imic made by griffin. This allows you to go usb2 to 1/8" m. Since youre running it to a stereo, which has volume control, you'lll have to do some adjusting on both ends, but make sure the signal is not too hot when youre patching to the stereo.5de7e77.png You can go into ITunes/Preferences/Advanced/Importing, and check the sound quality your audio is set to import at. The higher the bit rate, the higher the resolution, the larger the file. So, it's give or take, and ideally your an external hard drive is where you would want to store your audio. Less stress on your hardd rive and processor(s) during playback.

Hope this helps, keep me posted.

I have a cd stuck in my laptop computer. It's a iBook G4. The cd tray doesn't come out. there is a mechanism that helps to push the cd out. I dont know the best way to get it out. Please help!! E

Option 1:
If you restart the computer and just after it restarts if you hold down the eject key on the keyboard it should eject the disc, if not I would check to see if there is a tiny hole on the disc drive that you can stick a paper clip in - not sure if the ibook will have it but worth while checking.

Option 2:
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 icon 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.

First of all, any kind of repairs done to this machine. Will will be very costly. But if you want to spend the money and the time. You can take the computer apart and check the trackpad and mouse button. You are looking for connection quality. Look for corrosion of the connectors, water damage, and sticky residue. Cleaning all of these things up with rubbing alcohol may help but, it's not guaranteed. You might have to replace the trackpad and mouse button.
Your best bet is to check an online auction site for a old machine that you can use for parts. Good luck.

How are you trying to connect?  Wireless or via wired connection?  There's a control panel called NETWORK on in the systems preferences.  If you go into that control panel it will show you the options that are available and what their status is.  For example, I'm using the wireless on MacBook Pro and it shows a GREEN light next to the wireless connection.  If you let us know how you are trying to connect to the internet, it'll help us solve your problem.
