Why does cd rom not conned to my macbook?


I'm not sure about this, because I have an internal CD/DVD in my macbook. But this can be a driver issue. Do you have an Apple CD drive, or an universal USB CD drive? The last one could be very tricky, because the computer needs special drivers, so it can recognise the external drive.

How to use your IPOD as an External Drive (Mac)


If you're running out of external Hard drives or don't have a Flash drive on hand, and you need to transfer file or simply trying to copy anything externally, don't worry! Ipod can be a useful tools beside from its original purpose, as being a wonderful portable media device, this digital wonder can practically be used a portable external drive, on which you can store files, JUST like an external HDD (Hard Disk Drive) connected to your Mac.

An example of Ipod classic packs a lot of data storage in just a small package, from 5GB up to 160 GB, and in the future, some Ipod will have more capacity (A Gigabytes is a unit of computer memory of data storage capacity, that is equal to 1,024 megabyte, so One Gigabytes is equal to one billion bytes).
To configure an Ipod to be used an an external Hard Drive please follow this steps:
  1. Of course connect your Ipod to your Mac ( Once this is connected iTunes will automatically launch and connects to the Ipod
  2. Select the Ipod on the source list
  3. Click the summary tab, if its isn't selected already
  4. Select the Enable disk use disk box, (at this time you will see a warning prompt that will explain this procedure, because the Ipod will be acting as Hard Drive (Hard Drive is an optical or magnetic disk that is used to read and write information on it)
  5. Click Ok at the prompt
  6. Click Apply, then it is ready to use.
  7. Note: You must manually eject this before disconnecting the device from your computer after you finished!

MBP cannot start black scteen with boot up sound


Hi JJ Su,
To connect an external monitor to your MacBook Pro, you will need an adapter that connects to the mini-display port on the MBP, and has another plug that is appropriate for your external display {VGA or DVI}.
Take a look at Amazon to find a relatively inexpensive adapter if you don't already have one.
-Please make sure that you order the right kind of adapter for your MBP since there Apple has used 2 different kinds of ports depending on the particular model!
FYI, if the external monitor doesn't work either, then you probably have a bad GPU {Graphic Processor Unit} on the motherboard. IF the external does work, then you either have a bad internal screen, or some bad connectors/wires inside the MBP...
Hope this helps & good luck!

How do i connect macbook pro 2011 to external Dynex monitor? Close clamshell?


Make sure that the connector fits both Male/Female ports on the monitor and computer match. Then make sure that the software is installed properly. If the cords don't match, go to your local best buy or tech store and purchase an adapter.

Ibook external monitor hardware


Hi,
Check which video out connector your mac has (there have been a few in the last gew years) and then buy the appropriate adaptor from the apple store. (or ebay) This will give you a standard VGA connector that you can then connect to most monitors with a standard VGA lead.

Ibook powers up but no video


Before disassembling the unit, the recommended way to diagnose a display failure is to use the appropriate adapter to connect the iBook to an external display or TV. If the external display shows an image, the internal display assembly is at fault; otherwise, it could be the graphics processor or logic board. This step may be more difficult now that you have your unit apart.
Two cable sets drive the display. One provides image signal, the other provides power to the backlight. It is common for them to fray where they run through the hinges. Either or both could be the cause of your problem. Another possibility is that your backlight has burned out, as it is nothing but a small fluorescent tube and they fail with age.

I have just hooked up an external monitor (LG Flatron) to my macbook--no problem with web pages, but I am unable to see my desktop or any word files. When I boot up, it says analog in the upper right...


  1. When you connect an external monitor to your MacBook (or PowerBook, for that matter), you can combine your MacBook's LCD and your external monitor to create one big monitor. That means when your mouse pointer goes off the edge of one, it will appear on the other. Open the Displays Preference Pane to configure the resolution and orientation of the two monitors. This type of configuration works well when you want to keep your main work on your larger external display, but still keep things like IM, iTunes, and email constantly visible on the smaller laptop LCD.
  2. Some windows act like they don't want to be dragged on to your external monitor. If a windows is being stubborn, try dragging it up to the menu bar, and keep dragging, even if stays stuck below the menu bar. Sometimes once you have dragged it far enough that it has room to render the entire window, it will jump to the other monitor (Terminal used to have this problem, but Apple fixed it some time ago). If that doesn't work, try dragging it from a corner of your monitor. My Adium contact list doesn't seem to want to live on my external monitor, but I can coerce it up there by dragging up from either corner.
  3. When your laptop is open, you can't switch to using the full resolution of an external monitor. I have no idea why, but it's a fact of life for MacBook users. You can use both displays in "extended" mode, or you can mirror your MacBook's display (which most likely doesn't use the full resolution of your external monitor), but you can't switch to using only the external monitor. Very strange.
  4. If you close your laptop, you can actually get the full resolution of your external display. Put your MacBook to sleep, connect your external display and an external monitor, and wake the computer up by pressing any key. You will have full use of your external display while your laptop is closed.
  5. If you really want to have your MacBook open while only using an external display, after following the procedure above, you can open your MacBook, and it's screen will remain off, which means you can still use the MacBook's keyboard and trackpad. Why you can't get into this mode using F7, I have no idea. This is a good technique for allowing some heat to dissipate while still using an external display so the lid of your MacBook doesn't melt or warp.
  6. You can boot your computer using just an external display. Just connect your external display, open the lid, hit the power button, and close the lid again immediately.
  7. In order to output only to an external monitor, you have to have the power cable connected. I tried for several minutes yesterday to get my MacBook to wake up with an external keyboard and monitor before unpacking my AC adapter from my backpack, and it wouldn't work. It took me a while to make the connection (no pun intended), but I eventually discovered that with the power cable attached, everything works as expected.

USB external modem


The phone connection would need to go through the blue tooth regardless of if you're using the phone connection or not. Check to see that you have bluetooth turned on and setup first. Then you'll need to use that to create the settings for using the phone as a modem. However, if you are using Windows on your Mac, you will need to make sure that your computer has the drivers installed to be able to both connect to the Internet and to connect to your phone. Once that is set up, you still need to go through the steps to use bluetooth to connect your phone to your computer, establishing a connection. There are quite a few articles about creating connections through your phone as a modem. http://mobileoffice.about.com/od/typesofaccessavailable/ht/bluetoothphone.htm
