Question about Apple MacBook Pro Notebook

1 Answer

A lot of issues.

For one, Aol Instant Messenger (mac version) will not install on the mac. When I double click on the aim.bin, I get this message, "Unable to unarchive "aim.bin" into "Downloads". (Error 45-Operation not supported.)"

Special characters such as ♥ will only show up as a wierd bar, not as the heart.

Any way to fix these problems?

(AOL will not help me since I do not have their internet service. I already tried.)

AOL is a POS. If you have a mac you will already have AIM linked to it via an application called ICHAT. Open that application, and fill your details. It IS AIM for Macs. If you do not have ICHAT you can download it for free.

Good luck

    Once you download firefox it comes up in a little folder after the download. You have to take the firefox logo and drag it to your applications folder. Once in there, close the little file it downloaded in and open applications folder. Double click the logo and it should fire up. Once that is done, restart and see if it is in the applications folder when you return. Once it works in there, drag the logo to your dock as a short cut.



    Job done =)

Start up disc is full on my mac book air, what do i click?


If the disk is full, you'll need to move files elsewhere -- either cloud storage, external disk, dvd, etc... You might also have lots of junk on the machine - delete things you don't need and empty your recycle bin.

Trouble downloading songs from G-3 I phone to powerbook g4


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

If you are experiencing issues with downloading songs from iPhone 3G to your Powerbook G4, there are a few steps you need to check:
Make sure your Mac OS X operating system version is up to date. The most current updates for the current 3 most common Mac OS systems out today: Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger: Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Current version) Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard: Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Current version) Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Mac OS X 10.6.6 (Current version)
If your present version of Mac OS X does not match the current version update listed above for your system, then click on the Apple menu icon in the upper left corner of your screen and select "About this Mac" to verify. • Then close that window and click on the Apple menu icon once again and select Software Updates andrun the updates.
• Once your Mac OS X has been updated to the most current version, then you will need to visit the link below, then download and install the current version iTunes Link: Download iTunes 10 for Mac (for 10.5 Leopard or higher) Link: Download iTunes 9.2.1 for Mac (for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or earlier)
• When you have the current version of iTunes on your Powerbook, then commence to connect your iPhone 3G with your Powerbook and sync your iPhone with iTunes.
I am providing these initial steps to you, due to the limited information I have from you regarding your technical issue, but will be glad to assist you further, if you are unable to resolve your issue with these provided steps.
I hope this helps.
Regards,
-Mactectrainer

I downloaded adobe digital editions. They ask for an id and password which I don't have. When I click on the register it sends me to this page. How do I register?


Mac OS solutions Uninstall previous versions of Digital Editions for Mac OS

You must have administrator privileges to complete these steps.

  1. From your user directory, locate /Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/www.macromedia.com/bin/open.
  2. Drag the digitaleditions1x5 folder to the Trash, and empty the Trash.
Manually install Adobe Digital Editions for Mac OS
  1. Finish installing or uninstalling any other applications.
  2. Uninstall any earlier versions of Adobe Digital Editions.
  3. Download the installer package for your Mac OS X machine:
  1. Click Open in the File Download screen to start the installation.
    Note: If your connection times out, click Save, instead of Open, to save the installer package to your desktop.
  2. If necessary, unzip the .zip file. If you're using Safari as your browser, or if Firefox is set up to unzip files, the file unzips automatically.
  3. Double-click the .pkg file to start the installer, and follow the onscreen instructions.

Note: If your connection times out, save the installer package to your desktop. (Click the link for your Mac OS X machine, and then click Save.) Double-click the file to start the installation.

I have a laptop computer and i don't know how to activate the cam for my messenger?


There are many messengers one can use on mac,and I am not clear which one you are referring to. I am therefore providing many answers about many ways you can message and videoconference on mac. msn messenger does not have video conferencing for macs.( I also searched for some time to discover this!) You can get msn messenger for mac (the download) but it does not include video chatting!! I am sure of this. There is also a download for Yahoo messenger for mac which includes videoconferencing http://messenger.yahoo.com/mac/, However, Skype is great for mac videoconferencing. (My favorite). Gmail also has something to download for videoconferencing also. http://www.google.com/chat/video. There is also Ichat for macs http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=iChat/4.0/en/15610.html and this is the page with info about setting it up, and AIM. And here is a tutorial for ichat and AIM video conferencing: http://www.mvldesign.com/video_conference_tutorial.html. ...... However.... I personally love Skype. Download it at Skype.com, create user name and password and then invite contacts. To activate the cam go to Skype preferences on the top of the screen, choose video and check off Enable Skype video to see your friends and also check off Start Automatically if you want them to to see you (or you can click the icon for the video after you are on a call with them for them to see you only if you want to be seen on that one call!). If you find this answers your question I would so much appreciate a positive vote!

Unable to install the Print Shop for Mac


Hi Penny Ray,

Print Shop Installer is part of the old OS9 operating system. "Classic Environment" was a form of OS-9-Lite that ran on-top of earlier versions of OS-X. It is not supported in Intel-based Macs, (and doesn't appear to be supported in OS 10.5, which is the current version).

What model Mac laptop and version of OS are you running? And more specifically, can you provide more detail about what are you hoping to print?

Please let me know when you can - thanks in-advance.

Have you gone into System Preferences (click on Apple icon, top left of screen) and changed the Energy Saver settings? If the Energy Saver settings are set too low, your Mac will shut down.
