You have to click on the little paperclip icon in most email application (web or Mail, Entourage, etc) and then navigate to the hard drive (in your case the jump drive) and find the file to attach. In some case you need to navigate all the way up and look for a listing to .volumes.

I have an external WD My Passport hard drive but Pages says it cannot create a file when I try to save a document on the external hard drive. Is it because the file format is not compatible with Imac? Can...


Apple Pages has a few bugs like this. There is a work around.
  1. Save to Desktop or Documents folder on the System Drive
  2. In Finder, move the file to your external drive.
  3. Now when you open the file from your external any saves will continue to go to your external drive.
It's a bit of a pain but works for now.
All the best

Imac4 was OK but now I get an error message telling me to relaunch Outlook but it will not relaunch


First, start up the computer from Disk 1 of your OS installer if you have it and run Utilities/Disk Utility. Click "Repair Disk" and let the program do its work. If you don't have the install disk handy, you can do the job from the command line as follows:
Start up the computer and immediately hold down the option and S keys. Instead of a normal startup, the screen will go black and give you a whole bunch of reports on startup operations in white type. When this is done, you'll see a command line prompt with the primary user's short name. Type fsck -f and hit <return>. The File System ChecKer will begin doing its work. If it comes up with repairs to do, wait until it's finished and run it again. When it reports, "The volume [volumename] appears to be OK." you can restart by typing reboot and <return>.
Try Outlook again. If it still doesn't work, then open the Microsoft Database Utility. The default location is /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office/ (assuming you have Office 2011, you didn't mention any versions of Office or OS). Click the identity of the database you want to rebuild, then click "Rebuild"
For more information, see this Microsoft Outlook Help page.

Transfer kodak easy share music clips to iTunes


Hi J,
What kind of music clips do you have in Kodak easy share ?
can you save them onto your desktop ? I don't know this product.. but I guess if you're here... then it's not so easy to share..;-)
If you can get the files to your desktop, either by eMailing to yourself or simply downloading them, then you can see the file format, iTunes does not accept all file formats. It is possible that Kodak easy share does not use a compatible format...

iTunes 1.0 and later can import and play the following audio file types:
  • AIFF
  • AIFC
  • audio CD
  • MP3
  • System 7 Sound (SND)
  • uLaw (AU)
  • WAV
  • QDesign
  • QuickTime audio (audio only movies)

iTunes 3 and later can also play these additional file types:
  • Audible.com (format 2, 3, and 4)
iTunes 4 and later can also play these additional file types:
  • AAC (Advanced Audio Coding)
  • MP4

You might need to convert what Kodak creates into one of these formats. THere are many file format converters available on the web.. or you can use QuickTIme Pro

The DMG file type is primarily associated with 'Macintosh OS X' by Apple Inc.. On the Macintosh, these files are treated like a real disk. They can be created with Disk Copy, burnt to CD or mounted as a normal volume. The DMG file also comes in different formats: HFS, HFS+, UFS, ProDOS, Linux, and Fat32 and so may also require special mounting software to account for the format. IsoBuster can interpret these files directly as can other programs such as UltraISO. The program TransMac, by Acute Systems, can both open and create DMG files on a PC.

Recovery?


Since you are runing under Mac OS X, NO 1 choice is rely on Time Machine to recover from backup. If you do not set Time Machine, then you probably need a Mac data recovery software. But the first thing you need to take care is do not put more items to the Macintosh HD where those trashed stuff originally located. Learn more from this article recover emptied Trash Mac for more helpful information. Best regards.

System doesn't see drive, and can't repair with disc utility because of B-tree node error


Try a more heavy-duty disk utility such as Disk Warrior. If this doesn't work, the files you have on there are close to being toast. You would have to recover them with a utility such as Data Rescue II (and then spend days figuring out which file is which and which file is worth keeping). Otherwise, just reformat your drive with the "write zeroes" security option to map out all the bad blocks.

IMac won't recognize the files on a PC


In order for a Mac to open files generated on a PC, you must have a program capable of reading these files. The new version of Microsoft Office defaults to saving files in a new format which is not compatible with earlier versions. This can be rectified by 'Back Saving' files to an earlier version of Office in the 'Save' menu.
If you have files that you know can be opened with an application that is installed on the Mac, ctrl/click (right click) on the file and chose 'Open With' from the drop down menu. This will allow you to choose the application.
