Problem: Rosetta Stone msg: 1117 error occurred in the speech component operating system: Mac OSX Hi, I Have Rosseta Stone installed on my macbook pro (osx) and have/used it over a week now....


Try my steps:-
1.If you know removing installed programs from MAC, then please remove this application named-Rosetta Stone.
2. Now, remove all the cables & wires if your hardware audio device & turn off your computer.
3. Reconnect all the cables & wires & start your computer.
4. This time, reinstall the audio driver.

If this doesn't work, then you may try these ones:-
METHOD 1: Perform Step 1 to 3 again & install a different audio driver instead of Rosetta Stone.

METHOD 2: (This is only if METHOD 1 is also not working) Try your mic in any other MAC by installing Rosetta Stone in that system.

Note: You may search for a different audio driver at http://www.download.cnet.com/. Here search in mac column.
For any more support or any questions in future, you are the most welcome to contact me at abmakm@yahoo.com.

  • Verify that the power outlet you're using is good and your power cable is firmly connected to the wall outlet-if using a surge protector, be sure that it's firmly plugged into the wall outlet. Also, try temporarily plugging directly into the wall outlet to eliminate any issue with the surge protector; plug a different electronic device into the same wall socket to make sure the socket works, and also try the iMac's power cable in a different wall outlet.
  • Make sure the computer's power cable is firmly connected to the computer.
  • If any external devices are connected to your iMac, disconnect them and try to turn the computer on again. If the iMac will power up when those devices are removed, but not when they are connected, contact the manufacturer of those devices for assistance.
  • Try resetting the iMac's SMC
  • Remove and reinstall the SO-DIMM memory modules, located in the bottom of the computer.
  • Resetting the SMC for Mac Pro, Intel-based iMac, Intel-based Mac mini, or Intel-based Xserve

    1. Shut down the computer.
    2. Unplug the computer's power cord.
    3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    4. Release the power button.
    5. Attach the computers power cable.
    6. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Plugged alluratek ahdu350 to a mac, and the mac doesn't recognize


Firstly make sure You are not connecting it via a hub or extender but directly to motherboard ports [ ports "sticking out" of Your mac computer], secondly make sure the enclosure has no loose connections,
Please note devices like hard drives are real power hogs, just usb connection may not be enough power, You should have a power adapter You can plug to a wall outlet to give extra amps to Your device
Should it power on fully, make sure to go to system details [you go there by ressing a button in "about my mac" little window from the apple logo menu and check under usb listing if it is listed
lastly go to disk utility and check if the drive is visible, if it is not mounted it may need formatting

One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
 
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
10. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive

2GB USB Flash Drive


Hi. Here are the steps:

1. Plug your flash drive into a USB port on your computer.
2. If you use Windows, the flash drive will appear as an icon in the "My Computer" window, with a caption along the lines of "Removable Device" or "Flash Drive". Note: Please wait the first time you plug it in - Windows needs to "discover" the flash drive, and will essentially set itself up to recognize the device so that it's usable. If you use a Mac, the flash drive's icon will appear on your desktop with similar captioning mentioned above.
3. You can double-click on the icon to open the flash drive and see its contents. You can drag files from anywhere into that window, or over the flash drive's icon itself to copy files into it.

Usb flash drive


It is simple to use, simply plug it into a working USB port on your computer and Windows or Mac will detect it as an external drive device. You will find the new drive under My Computer. The bottom right may display a "found new hardware" or something similar. Once you find your drive, open it and choose what you want to put on it. Just drag everything you need onto the new drive. There is a possibility that you have to format it first. Do do that, just right click on the drive device and choose Format. Use FAT or FAT 32. To remove the USB drive, find Safely Remove Hardware close to the time, right click it and select remove. This is more important on a MAC because data could easily get erased if removed without giving instruction to remove it.
