I have a mini mac and an external Rock Mobile Disk. It flashed red and green constantly and my computer cannot find it. I have changed computers( another mini) and ubs cords. Rich


Make sure the cable is fitted securely at both ends. Check to see if another usb device works on the same port. If the drive uses a "Y" usb cord (one usb into the drive and two into the laptop) Make sure the replacement cord you use to test is a "Y" cord as well. Open Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility. Check to see if a second hard drive is listed on the left hand side. Is the drive mounted? If not then select it and click the mount button at the top. If there isn't a second hard drive listed you could try removing the hard drive that is inside the case and hook it up to a "IDE/SATA to USB" hard drive adapter and plug it in. Instructions on where to find and how to use these adapters can be found on google. Sometimes the electronics inside the case can go bad and using another case or adapter with the hard drive can make a difference.

Mac mini desk top can not click


You can access your desktop as though it were any other folder and thus delete its contents however you'd care to.

In Finder, go to the File Menu > New Finder Window. It should automatically open your user folder and show Application, Desktop, Documents, etc. From there, simply open the Desktop folder and delete the files.
If any other window is opened, click on Mac HD > Users > [your user name here] > Desktop and do the same.
