Hello A download problem can come from multiple things: - It can be the navigator (Safari or firefox for example) that needs to be updated- It can be a permission problem on the system: please check and repair the permissions using disk utility: Open /Applications/Utilities/Disk UtilitySelect "SOS" TabClick: "Repair permissions" button Wait until this is finishedReboot the computer - It can also come from a full hard drive that no longer accepts downloads! To check which file takes all the place, I suggest Disk Inventory X Hope this helpsDamien
Is this a liquid cooled G5? What CPU is it? Need as much info as possible like what where you doing last time it turned on? Have you looked inside the case? Do you hear any clicking when the power cable is connected for the first time? A lot of the last G5's were liquid cooled and a lot have leaked in the past. This small leak eventually ruins the power supply and worse yet ruins the logicboard and CPUs. If you don't know if it is liquid cooled look for a warning stamp on the bottom near front by the CPU fans (inside the case). It states to shut off if liquid is viable (something to that effect). Most times the liquid cannot be seen as it drips into the power supply on the very bottom. I would take it to Apple and have them check it out.
G5 will not boot off of OS9. Since you are more of a pc guy, think of it like this, you buy a used newer pc meant to run Vista, and you are trying to load Windows 98 on there. You can run any of the OSX flavors on there...
Depending on your Model (scroll to bottom) of G5 you need to be running...
2003 -> at least 10.2 Jaguar
2004 -> at least 10.3 Panther
2005 -> at least 10.4 Tiger
10.5 Leopard is Apple's newest operating system and it can be run on any of these models. You need to buy a retail copy (has drivers for every model) unless you buy exactly the right system disk for that specific model.
OS9 can be installed and run inside of OSX using something called Classic mode. This would be like running a virtual XP Pro inside of Vista.
In order for a Mac to open files generated on a PC, you must have a program capable of reading these files. The new version of Microsoft Office defaults to saving files in a new format which is not compatible with earlier versions. This can be rectified by 'Back Saving' files to an earlier version of Office in the 'Save' menu. If you have files that you know can be opened with an application that is installed on the Mac, ctrl/click (right click) on the file and chose 'Open With' from the drop down menu. This will allow you to choose the application.
Format your hardrive for Mac OS: Go to Disk Utilities under the go menu in your finder. Select the external drive and click on the erase tab. Clikc erase again and it formats the drive. You can now copy files onto the drive.
Even though Sony Mavica digital cameras are listed as compatible with iPhoto, the camera has to be set to Picture-Transfer-Protocol (PTP) before you can download. In addition, you will need to open Image Capture in the Applications folder. As soon as these steps are taken, the camera is recognized by iPhoto and all photos downloaded into Image Capture.
