I have a mac and never need to finalize the disc. All I do is hook up the USB to the camera and the computer, then turn on the camera and the application called Image Capture will come on automatically, you can download some of the pics or all. They will go into a folder you choose. HTH

Reset imac password

It depends which password yo want to reset. If it is the Mac OSX password then you will need to go through some linux commands. If it's efi i.e bios password than, you need a professional Apple service centre. You will need to boot your imac with osx disc and click on utilities and then reset password.

I have the 8 disc set (mac version) purchased in the year 2000 working with OSX 9. Now I have a new mac with snow leopard version OSX 10. I would like to use the disc's with the new computer, what do I do?

Unfortunately the software will not work with OSX. OS9 (also refered to as classic os) had some compatibility with macs up to 2005 when Apple changed the processors in macs to Intel. Since then all OS9 software no longer works.
There is a small chance you may be able to browse/search the CD's folders for images as the photo objects may be in jpg/gif/png format. Try opening finder, select the CD. and search with the text box in the upper right corner in Finder.

Can i play Civ II on my brand new mac?? or do i need an older mac

Civ II is a fairly old game. It seems that your PC runs Windows XP or earlier. It is likely that the site you read was correct, and your computer is too new to run it. However, you may be able to get another newer version of Civ for Mac, but check the system req's for any game you try to install. I don't know for sure if this is the case, but I hope this helps you somewhat.

Ibook has gone nuts

What version of OS X are you running Jaguar Panther or Tiger? How are you trying to connect to the internet? Through a router or directly connected to the DSL/Cable modem? There are some things that you need to look at to get the information you need in the System Preferences Network tab.

First look to see if it says you are connected via Ethernet and what colour the "light" is (green yellow or red). If it is green you are connected and have an IP address, yellow connected but there is an issue with the IP address and or connection and red means that the ethernet does not show any connection to the network.

Depending on what that shows, look at the interface tab (may have to select advanced) and see that the ETH0 is present and selected and that it is first on the list.
You then go to the TCPIP tab and check that it is set for DHCP or automatic configuration.. If it is then try to renew the DHCP lease. If it is set for anything other than that, change it apply and try again.

I had a G3 iBook that was probably about the same age and specs, and I noticed it really only started working well after I put Tiger 10.4 on it. 10.2 was not great and of course with 9.x it would not run new stuff.

Feel free to ask for more help if you need it. I have A LOT of experience with the machine you have running different versions of OS X.

Sony Mavica CD400 -- can't get iMac to see mini disks

Bob: the Mac will never show what is on the disk.....and you don't hgave to finalize either. Do you have Image Capture on your units? If so, all you need to do is connect the camera via USB cable to the computer. The program will come on automatically (the camera has to be on), you can choose to download some or all of the pictures to a folder of your choice. HTH
