Some people like to be organized. Others don't. If you like to be organized and like to keep files such pictures, videos, and audio/music in folders, an apple (mac) is the computer for you. To wasially organize folders, simply make your folders. Add files, pictures, etc. Then Decide what the folder(s) is going to be. (The Topic. Pictures, Home Videos, Music, Back-ups, etc.) On the desktop, click once. Now at the top left it should say "Finder" next the the apple logo. Click the "Finder" button. Now a drop down menu should appear. In the list of the drop down menu, scroll down till you see "Preferences." Click on the "Preferences" button that s hilighted. Now a box should appear. If not, repeat these steps over again. (It usually shows up the first time.) Now, on the new box, at the top there should be 4 choices. You want the one that says "Labels." Click that. Then you should have different colors, (Red under red oval, Blue under blue oval etc.) Change the Color name to what you want. (Music, Movies etc.) This is great for organizing. no once you are done, go into that folder you created earlier. Hilight that folder once. Right click. under "Labels" select the color you created that goes with that topic. it's that simple!

Hi, has this mini been opened up to add more memory?
I would suggest that before you conclude that the ATA bus is damaged, open the mini up and see if the ATA connector is still connected to the motherboard. (It's the same connector for both drives).

I plug it into the computer and nothing happens

I depends on what you want to do to it.

Removable media is the mp3 player drives that are viewable through plug-and-play access.

If you want to add music and such to the mp3 player, then you right-click on one of the two disk and select explore.

The right disk should show up in a new window with labeled folders inside..i.e. music.

Drag and drop mp3 files to the appropriate folder to add music, and to delete simply click the file you want deleted and press or click delete.

If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

Hope this helps, don't forget to rate <(^_^)> thanxx
