I can run v3 of the viewables software using Win XP under parallels on my MacBook without any problem. v3 only supports a limited set of colors. Since I cannot download the current v4, I cannot test it. If someone of you can provide me with the v4 installer, I'll test this version too.

    Smead has been giving the same pitiful excuse for how many years now? Mac is now the number one selling computer brand. Some major Windows PC manufacturers have bowed out of the market entirely (IBM) and others will follow. The Mac OS and iPad iOS have the majority installed base in the creative industries of film, TV, music, advertising, etc. They represent between 40% and 50% of the higher education market and adoption continues to accelerate rapidly. Smead is missing out on a hugely significant market. Rewriting their software for Macs is not rocket science and it's not that expensive considering the size of the market they are missing. Go figure.

In reading the instructions for a B&H DV200HD I see that under system requirements only Windows operating systems are listed but I have a Macbook pro. Will the software work with a Mac product?

If it's a USB device it should work with any system, i have found that Macs like to format under their own system and i have had cases where they wn't read a windows config HD (but they normally do)
If it's USB then they should work, current mode is called EXFAT and most Macs can support this.

I can not update my mac to 10.9

Hard to say without knowing exactly what Mac you have and what specs, but most likely reason would be your system doesn't meet the requirements (From Apple support site) - To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
Your Mac also needs:
  • OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed
  • 2 GB or more of memory
  • 8 GB or more of available space

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?

Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.

I just bought a Smead Viewables starter kit, but their software doesn't work on my MacBook Pro? Are there templates or other software I can use???

So sorry about the mixup - at this time the Smead software isn't MAC compatible. For basic lablels you could check out 3M, Avery or use a Dymo lable machine.

Got new macbook pro. Iomega external drive is not recognized on desktop

Have you used this drive on a mac before?
Windows usually uses a different file system to macs. You may need to format the drive to work with macs.
Sorry if this was not your problem, you may be better off looking on mac forums.
Good luck

Wont install on Mac i use leopard and it states it needs classic envinroment

"In any case, you will not be able to use the Classic Environment in any OS with your MacBook Pro. The Classic Environment functions only on PowerPC-based Macs, of which the MacBook Pro (and all other currently sold Macs) is not. Mac OS 9 was never designed for Intel Macs, and cannot run on them without full PowerPC hardware emulation."

Hope it helps
