Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Connected via Firewire with a 400 (from drive) to 800 port on my iMac3.06 GHz Inter Core 2 Duo. It showed up at first, but then I got that error message that a device was removed without ejecting, but I hadn;t done anything. Now I can't get it to be seen on my desktop.

Try resetting your PRAM to 'reset' your firewire-port:
- Turn off your iMac - Press and hold command-option-P-R (command = applekey, option = alt) - While holding this combination, turn on the iMac. - Keep holding this combination until you have heard the 'startup chime' 3 times. - Allow your mac to boot up.
If this didn't work, try removing the power cord from your mac after turning it off, and leaving it unplugged for 15 minutes before turning it back on.
These steps usually work for me when I have a firewire-problem. I hope it helps for you.
Regards,
tS

Testimonial: "the firewire port is fine; recognizes two other drives connected via firewire, so resetting the PRAM won;t make a difference."

    Hi there


    It looks like a filesystem-related problem, but Firewire might still be the culprit (Sometimes it just 'banishes' certain devices). Check System Profiler > FireWire, and see if your hard drive shows up in there. If it doesn't, try the PRAM-reset, otherwise, try the following:


    Open Disk Utility and check if your drive shows up in there. Select your drive and press Repair Disk. If your drive doesn't show up, or the repair process fails or hangs, try this:


    - open Terminal
    - type in "top" (no parentheses), this will run a system monitor program
    - maximize the screen, and look for a process called fsck_msdos or fsck_hfs
    - note down the Process ID (PID) of this process, it should be a four or five digit number
    - press ctrl + C to close the system monitor
    - type in sudo kill and then the process number you noted down
    (for example sudo kill 1948)
    - Terminal will ask for your password. Type in your password and press enter (note that no ***** will be shown while typing your password, so take care to type it correctly)
    - your drive should show up now (with an error that it couldn't be repaired) in read-only mode


    To restore full functionality, you'll have to reformat the drive. Back up your files to another drive, and then format the drive using Disk Utility:


    - select the drive
    - select the Erase tab
    - choose Volume Format and Name to your liking (Mac OS Extended is only readable by Macs, or PC's with Macdrive installed, MS-DOS is readable by both but only allows files up to 4GB)


    When formatting is complete, you can move your files back to the drive.


    Hope this helped...

Can I upgrade my CPU to an Intel Core 2 duo 1.7


You are basically limited to what was optional on the model. So you can only upgrade to one of the following cpus:

Intel Pentium M 745 (1.8-GHz) with 400-MHz front
side bus (FSB)
Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Pentium M 710 TJ85 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB;
operates at a lower temperature than other processors
Intel Celeron M 340 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Celeron M 330 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB

And you are limted to 2gb of ram max on this model.

Can some one please let me know the name of the motherboard supporting Pentium 4 1.5 Ghz processor as well as Intel Core duo series of processors. Thanks, Ajay


The chips to which you refer are incompatible with respect to the socket used for each as well as the fact that Core duo and Pentium 4 1.5 GHz chips are from separate generations, the latter having been obsolescent since 2003. Therefore, there is no single motherboard that supports both, and the Pentium 4, Socket 478 boards can be obtained from various aftermarket sources.

Here is an example of the kind of board you need for your Pentium 4.

Firewire 800 cable


No such thing s a dumb question, I transfer from my Canon XL1 to my Mac IBook with firewire all the time. You have three choices: 1. Buy a cable with two different ends - one that will fit your camera (the tiny one so small it is hard to insert) and one that will fit the Mac. Your Mac should have two different types of firewire ports - the semi-round one and the square one that looks like a USB port, but isn't. The symbols are different  for firewire ports firewire and USB ports. But all firewire ports, regardless of the configuration will have the firewire symbol and all USB ports will have the USB symbol.  Either firewire symbol port will work. I have two different firewire ports on my MacBook G4 and use them both,  I keep a bunch of firewire connectors around. They usually come with outboard hard-drives in various configurations. Sold en Ebay or at computer stores Solution 2: Feed your firewire through an outboard drive that will accept the 400 firewire (many do) and then take another firewire, say an 800, from that drive into your computer. I always capture to a hard drive then edit from there. The idea of a firewire bus is that you can connect a number of drives in parallel and mount them all. Available for as little as $69.
Solution 3: Buy a firewire port card for you MacBook which slips into a slot on the side, and gives you connectivity with the 400. It also frees up your main firewire port. I bought one on Ebay for $24 that came with all the adaptors. I was pulling my hair out too until I figured out the system.

Having Problem with both LaCie hard drives being recognized on both macs


Try to connect to another computer, and see if it recognizes the drive. If Not, you can dismantle LaCie and take the disk out.

Connecto your disk to another external box (USB or Firewire) so you can have access to you data.
