Question about Apple MacBook Pro Notebook

Flash drive failure

I'm using USB flash drives to transfer iTunes files from my MacOSX to my MacBook Pro. I put music on the flash drive, transfer it to my macbook, then delete the files and repeat the process. After doing it one or two times, the flash drives are no longer able to hold anything, even after I deleted the files. I have gone through this with 4 different flash drives, all different brands.
Help!

You need to plug the flash drive in and empty the trash. Deleting the data on a flash drive puts the files and in the trash and still takes up space on the flash drive just like on your hard drive until you empty the trash.

Are you trying to transfer music files from one mac to another? If you are, try using your Migration Assistant Application If you have both macs hooked up to a network. It's found under Applications - Utilities - Migration Assistant. Migration Assistant is pretty self explanatory from there.

You need to format your drives. Even though you delete files on them a small amount of data remains each time. After so long the data builds up and clogs the drive.

Insert a USB with a problem
Go applications, Disk utility
open disk utility, then you should see the USB disk in the utility screen. click on then click format. It will kill all data on the USB and make it usable again.

How can I transfer music from a flash drive like leaf bridge to my iPad Air and then have that music stored in iCloud?


You can attach some flash drives to Apple's $29 iPad Camera Connection Kit. (If you have an iPad with a Lightning connector you'll additionally need Apple's $29 Lightning to USB Camera Adapter.) Let me underscore some. Some flash drives require more power than the iPad can provide and won't work.

For the second question, here's also a guide to help you back up iPad music to iCloud.
  1. Connect your iPad to a Wi-Fi network.
  2. In iOS 8 or later, tap Settings > iCloud > Backup. ...
  3. Make sure that iCloud Backup is turned on.
  4. Tap Back Up Now. ...
  5. Make sure the backup finished by tapping Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage, and then select your iPad.
If you have a new computer, you can also backup iPad music onto it.

You should open iTunes on your Macbook. You should plug in your iPad mini to your computer using the usb cord. Depending on what type of files you are trying to transfer to your iPad you may have to download additional applications on your iPad. Please respond to let me know what type of files you are trying to transfer. ie are you wanting music and movies or word and excel documents ect?

Alternatively, you can use your iPod classic to transfer your music as per the instructions in the following article:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1329

You can also transfer the contents of your iTunes library via a flash drive or external drive, simply copy My Documents / iTunes to your external hard drive / flash drive, transfer it to your Mac, and then drag and drop the entire iTunes folder onto the iTunes icon in the dock and it will automatically import all of your songs, settings, and playlists.

Transfer macbook pro music


There are a number of different ways to do this. If you have an external hard drive, all you need to do is drag the Macintosh HD/[your user name here]/Users/Music/iTunes folder onto the external drive, connect the external drive to your Macbook, and drag and drop the iTunes folder from the external drive onto the iTunes icon in the dock. <br /><br />If you have an iPod classic, you can do this: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1329<br /><br />...or if you don't have a huge library and/or have a lot of CDs/DVDs you can use, you can back up your library to disc: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1382<br /><br />...or if you have anything other other sort of iPod, iPhone, or iPad, you can rip the music from it using this utility: <br /><br />http://thelittleappfactory.com/irip/<br /><br />

Motozine won't connect to mac


Friend,
You must set it as Mass Storage in the settings and then connect it. It will be visible in My Computer as an additional drive. Use this drive as any other drive to copy files to and fro.

Tascam 2488MK11 hard drive problem


Hi I had exactly the same problem with my Macintosh, it worked fine until recently but suddenly stopped working. As a matter of fact it is probably due to a compatibility issue of the USB driver after a recent software update of MacOSX drivers. Fortunately I have an old Macbook pro with an old version of MacOSX and the Tascam showed up immediatly and USB worked fine. Therefore, if ou can downgrade your USB driver it might solve the problem.
