Hi I have an apple mac laptop and have plugged my new iomega 320gb 2.5 select portable hard drive. The problem is im trying to drag movies accross however it wont let me?

Portable devices such as USB disks (in most UNIX based operating systems) will be mounted as READ-ONLY. Remember the old floppy disk with a slide switch to make them READ-WRITE? same principal.
Try right clicking (MAC uses double finger click together) on the Desktop Icon that appears after you plug in the USB drive... is there an option to select READ-WRITE?
let us know if that was it.

How do i remove skype from my laptop?

The short answer is: Drag the Skype icon in your Dock off of it and drop it - it will go *poof* and disappear. Then, drag the Icon for Skype from the Applications folder on your local hard drive to the trash bin on your Dock. This will effectively remove all of the application information from your computer minus some very insignificant preference files. If you need to know how to delete them, please reply and let me know! Further, if Skype starts up with your computer please let me know if you get an error upon reboot and I'll help you clean that up as well.
Thanks, and I hope this helps!

My Document Folder has disappear from Dock.....I was not able to put it back. I tried to drag the document Folder icon in, but it does not work. What am I doing wrong?

You should be able to drag the Documents folder from a Finder window to the Dock.

Open a Finder window (click on the desktop, then hit Command-N). On the left side, go to the Places item (click the arrow on the left to expand it). Select your user name. In the window, you should see all the folders in your home folder. Click and drag the Documents folder down to the right side of the Dock -- to the right of the dotted line, before the Trash.

If you hover over the other folder icons, you should be able to move the pointer in between them. Once they split apart to open up a space for you, release the mouse button.

You cannot drag the little icon on the left of the Finder window (under your user ID) to the Dock. It has to be the regular folder icon on the right side of the Finder window.

If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

My mac book pro now has two safari icons. one on the dock and one on the screen. i can't get rid of one of them, please help.

If you want to get rid of the Safari icon on your dock:
just click on the Safari icon and drag it away from the dock, then let go of the icon.
It should just disappear.

If you want to get rid of the Safari icon on your screen (I'm assuming on your desktop):
-open a new Finder window (Finder> New Window)
-click on the Safari icon on your desktop and drag it to the Finder window, where it says "Applications", then let go of the icon
- it should disappear from your desktop

Is the Western Digital external drive working?

1. Restart your Mac with the drive plugged in. 2. Use Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility) to look for the drive. 3. If it isn't mounted, select the disk in Disk Utility, select the Disk First Aid tab, and click Repair Disk.
4. Look in the Finder Preferences and make sure that you haven't disabled the display of disk icons on the desktop.

Hard disk icon disappeared from desktop

To add the hard disk icon back onto your desktop, first click the "Finder" button in the dock. It is the dark and light smily face icon at the end of the dock.

Next, click the "Finder" menu item at the top of the screen and then "Preferences". In the "Finder Preferences" window that opens, click the "General" button. From there you can select what system items appear on your desktop. You can click "Hard disks" to re-add the hard disk icon.

When we plug the camera into the macintosh it wont recognize the camera

Well after a bit of trial and error, I found a somewhat consistent solution.  Here are the steps:
1.  While the camera is off, plug the USB cable into the camera (Don't plug the other end of the USB cable into the computer yet)
2.  Turn the camera on and press the mode button
3.  Navigate to the Camera icon
4.  Plug the USB cable into the computer (the camera icon will change to the USB screen)
5.  You will notice nothing happens!
6.  Unplug the USB cable from the computer
7.  The camera screen switches back to the Camera icon
8.  Plug the USB cable back into the computer and a VTech 773 icon should show up on your desktop.
9.  When your finished copying pictures to your hard drive, drag the VTech 773 icon to the trash.
I don't know why it works but it worked 9 out of 10 times for me.
Let me know if you find a simpler solution.

Download pics

Windows sees the camera as just another drive. With USB connection I open the folder on camera and copy files to a folder on the hard drive on my PC with Windows Explorer. Or I slip it in my card reader, which windows sees as just another drive.
