Netherlands Joanna - August 18th, 2014, 9:12 am in Mac OS X

OK so this topic can be closed now.
I had to buy a new "Apple Magic Mouse" and the new one works.
Sometimes things do get broken. I did everything possible to avoid spending money, insulting reinstall of Mac OS from Recovery partition, installing upgrades and changing settings and following all other suggestions I could find, it didn't work. Even after installing (upgrading) memory from 4 GB to 16GB and upgrading OS to Mavericks then installing all the updates, this one problem persisted. I had a haunch it was a hardware problem because it worked partially.
But by trying to solve this one I did solve a lot of other problems on the way, like my printer which wasn't printing. I had to fix a wifi connection at home, upgraded the memory and OS, reinstalled another computer and solved problems there (laptop, Windows) so, all in all, something positive came out of it...I cleared all my IT-related issues. During this whole process, a lot of new countless issues came up and I solved them all so I learned a lot, but in reality, it is never ending learning process.

OK, this topic can be closed now.
Here are steps I've done to help other users:
Reinstalled the printer software.
1) download the latest printer software (including drivers) from Epson website (only found it on UK website, NL website didn't have it, I am in the Netherlands).
2) choose between wireless or via usb cable - in my case usb cable; plug it in and switch on the printer
3) removed the printer using "-" button (uninstall it temporary)
4) add the same printer using "+" button - it will show on the bottom, the least of available printers nearby
5) test print a page - it works

No, each computer only recognizes its own displays. They talk to each other over the network to synchronize video playback.

That's pretty unusual, none of those reasons would explain why only a specific segment of your video would play poorly but not the rest. What program are you using to encode your video? Is there any chance you can upload it somewhere like Dropbox or something so I can have a look?

I'm pretty sure Mac OS X can still read HFS and HFS+ drives. Do you have no possible access to a Mac? What sort of drive is this?

Hurray! That worked, and the files are still OK! So now I have to find a version between Premiere 5.1c and Premiere Pro 2.0 and see if I can open them in that... Thanks!

I'm saying you cannot use AIC on Windows at all. Apple never ported this proprietary production codec to Windows. QuickTime for Windows simply doesn't understand how to play them.

Can you describe what setup you're trying to achieve? If you're playing just one video, an H.264-encoded QuickTime or MP4 video should play fine. I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to setup that isn't working.

Hi Robin,
1) MacKeeper is not recommended by Mac community, there is no point installing or keeping it. I checked all files manually and there is almost no "trash" so to speak, Mac OS must take care of this on its own probably.
2) The problem is: MEMORY. Standard iMac comes with 4GB memory and unfortunately it is not enough. I made enquiry about my model (mid-2011) and I can have 16GB of memory. Bought 4x4 memory cards and going to replace it on my own. I got instruction from Apple site and it looks very easy so non-expert can do that. But first check your model to see if you can add memory by yourself (some models only by certified customer service which costs money), then how much memory makes sense for your model (for example I can have 32GB max but my model is only going to use 16GB so anything above it is a waste of money). Problem solved…

If you need any help I can send you the links to websites where to get more information. I learned something and I am willing to pass my knowledge now to others.

That's questionable, 8 different movies is asking a lot of any computer. I couldn't make any guarantee on your system if it would work right or not. Be sure to use Apple Intermediate Codec if you try it out.

We don't, actually, but I'd be happy to try to answer any questions you have. It's pretty simple operation once you play around with it a little bit.

Oh dear, this is not good news. Am thinking new printer might be needed, but in meantime am managing most of the time by using Google Cloudprint: bit of a sledgehammer to crack a walnut when the printer is in the same room as my MacBook, though! It just used to work before the "upgrade" to Mavericks. No use asking Epson. I am waiting for Apple to get this fixed.

To open a video on one of the monitors you have to right-click it and choose Open Video, or drag a video and drop it on top.

It sounds like you're clicking "Open preset" instead, which is not what you want in this case.

well I stared to install 2001 and low and behold it would not start up.

I was starting to think the hd was bad booted up system works and everything checked out ok. so what the heck.

after much swapping parts etc i found where a small friend cut thru 1 wire one on the outside "the striped wire" of the scsi ribbon cable. So i soldered in a small jumper to reconnect the wire and joy everything works great!! and fast after everything was running i found 2001 already installed. so far all is well. I have been getting a lot of type 3 errors so i up the memory to the program and it appears to be working

The Nvidia GForce MX3 was considered the fastest stock card that shipped with the Cube. The Cube has a AGP 2x slot, so it should take any stock 2X and 4X AGP card without modification to the slot or the card pins. Cubeowner dot com was the definitive source for all information concerning the Cube and its modifications. I think the site is still up, but I have no idea how active it might be.

The new way it works is press and hold down the power button for 1.5 seconds to get the old dialog back with the different options.

No, definitely not. They are all independent monitors that work independent of a computer.

First thing I'd do is upgrade the OS to 10.7 or 10.8. If that doesn't help I'd bring the Mac to an Apple store and see if it might be the video hardware.

Instead of developing its own keyboard design, Typo chose to copy BlackBerry’s innovative style and design, including the keyboard layout and the surface shaping of the keys. This piece of news from The New York Times may invoke people’s reflection.

Make sure you get the screws down inside the handle. To open the case you would or perhaps only should use a case cracker. A search of the internet should turn up an assortment of differing tools that have been used to get into the cases of the classis Macs. Might even turn up up ideas digging through old InfoMac posts. InfoMac has been around since the beginning.
