In disk utility, look for both names on the left pane. The volume name is on top  with the partition name below. Both should be in Jet black and be selectable. If the drive is Dark int he list, it should be mounted on your desktop. In th disk utility window, choose first aid, then repair disk/repair disk permissions. You may need to run diagnostics on th drive to test its stability.

Hello, my Iomega 34579 1 TB USB 20 Hard Drive was working ok in my MAC but I've plugged it into my pc and it does'nt work, what do I have to do?


You probably formatted it as HFS+ to work with your Mac. Windows cannot do anything with that format. If you are wanting to use the drive with both Windows and Mac, you are going to have to format the drive as FAT32. There is a 4GB per file size limitation with FAT32. Otherwise there isn't anything that you can do.
To format your drive as FAT32 with a Mac OS X, Version 10.4 and above:
1. Make sure you have copied any needed files to another location. 2. Select Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility
In the left hand column, click on the drive icon for the Iomega drive or disk.
Make sure you click on the high level orange drive icon, not the second level volume icon.
3. Select the Partition tab. 4. Change Volume Scheme from Current to 1 Partition. 5. Click on the Options button. 6. Select Master Boot Record as the partition type. 7. Click the Format drop-down menu and select MS-DOS File System as the format type. 8. Click OK. 9. Click the Partition button

PowerBook G4 Mac Notebook: what is the icon immediately to the left of the an...


It's most likely the bluetooth icon. You can use bluetooth to up/download files from a bluetooth compatible phone, or other device into your laptop.
You need to "find" and "connect" both pieces of equipment to work together first.
Similar to a bluetooth headset with your phone.
Easy to do and then it's easy to transfer files..

Force Remove a DVD


Hello,
Try to eject a disc using the eject icon in the "Devices" section of your Mac "Sidebar" or using the eject key on your Mac keyboard. If the disc refuses to unmount and eject, move on to Step 2.
Navigate in an open Finder window to "Applications/Utilities" and double-click "Disc Utilities" to launch the application
In the list of available discs, on the left-hand side of the "Disc Utilities" application window, select the mounted CD or DVD2_bing.gif with a single-click.
On the top of the "Disc Utilities" window, single-click the "Unmount" button. Your disc will unmount and be ejected.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

I have and I mac and I cannot run any exe files!!


Files with the suffix ".exe" are executable only under the Windows operating system. If you have an Intel iMac you can run Parallels software and actually install Windows side by side with the Mac OS and then be able to run ".exe" files in their native environment. Generally, downloadable program files for Macintosh have a ".dmg" suffix which is a disk image file which contains the actual program. After mounting the disk image on the desktop (by double-clicking) you can then copy the program file inside it directly to your hard drive via click&drag and then run it from the hard drive.

Mac os x 10.4 tiger system preferences won't launch ? in place of icon in dock


Try this:

• Open a new Finder window and select Library from your Home Folder
• Select the Preferences folder.
• Locate and remove to the Trash,
com.apple.preferences.plist
• Now click on the back arrow in the upper left corner of your
window- this will take you back to the Library window.
• Now locate and remove the folder entitled "Caches"

-Close all windows and then click on the blue Apple menu icon and select from the drop down menu, Logout<username>.

• this will take you to the main login window. Simply log back in and before you attempt to launch System Preferences, run Disk Utility first:

font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} -RUN DISK UTILITY FIRST-

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed
this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair permissions until completion
(This is not often a necessary step, but in the many of the hands-on software and Mac OS X troubleshooting I have done on Macs, I almost always run it just because it does repair alot of the permissions on files which can sometimes affect how certain applications, files and folders work. It also improves your Mac's performance a bit too:)

Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary (if there are errors listed in red, re-run DU to see if those error will clear- if they don't reply back to this post right away and let me know what the exact error message is), quit Disk Utility.

• Relaunch System Preferences.

Let me know if this helps resolve the issue.

Deleting


Error -43 is the common "File Not Found" error.  This can also mean a folder is not found. (A Google search for "macintosh error codes" returns a complete list from Apple at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1618.)  I don't know why it would say this unless the files really don't exist.
Dragging an item to the Trash doesn't usually require a password unless you are not the owner of the item.  This can occur when copying items from another user's account, for example.
Try selecting all of the items that you want to delete, hold down the Option key, and choose Show Inspector from the File menu.  In the Sharing & Permissions area at the bottom of the Inspector window, verify that you have permission to delete the files.  If not, click the lock icon, type an administrator's username and password, then change the Privilege to Read & Write (you might have to use the + icon to add yourself to the list before changing anything).
Close the Inspector window and delete the items.  This should do the trick.
