Re: low usb power in cube

You got a low power warning plugging the iPod directly to the cube? That shouldn't happen I don't think, although I know that message will appear if you plug an iPod into the keyboard rather than computer itself.

Front Row on Mac Pro Options

I noticed that installing Leopard on my Mac Pro has given me Front Row... yay. But what options are available to me to use it? Bluetooth remotes? The Apple remote? Something else? Nothing? I have an older IR remote that attaches via a USB dongle but it requires unsightly software to work and I would...

Writing to NTFS Drives

A friend of mine has run into a bit of a snag with this el-cheapo media player thing he has, which is basically an external hard drive that can be attached to a television and play movies. It is formatted as NTFS I presume, because he cannot modify anything on it, only read it. He is trying to get s...

Re: Macintosh Portable - battery pack restoration

I'm not sure if those can be restored in the traditional sense of restoring PowerBook batteries. Aren't they lead-acid batteries?

Re: How to Remove Boot Camp Partition

Actually we eventually figured it out. It was quite easy with Disk Utility. Simply deleted the partition, then increased the partition size of Macintosh HD and clicked "Apply" - worked like a charm.

How to Remove Boot Camp Partition

I am working on my friend's MacBook and he has a 10 GB Windows partition created with Boot Camp, but his Boot Camp beta expired and he doesn't want the Boot Camp partition anymore anyway... but we can't figure out how to remove the partition and he could really use the extra 10 GB on his main partit...

Re: Why is Dreamweaver so slow!

Yes it's UB. Dreamweaver has the strange tendency to just randomly go extremely slow, even if I'm just using it as an HTML editor.

The Radeon 7500 in that auction is most certainly a flashed PC card.

Re: do all g5 have liquid cooling?

Most G5s do not have liquid cooling:

"The Power Macintosh G5/2.5 DP (PCI-X), Power Macintosh G5/2.7 DP (PCI-X), and Power Macintosh G5 "Quad Core" (2.5) all have a liquid cooling system."

Quoted from here.

Why would it give you these crazy errors when normally video cards are just plug and play?

Is this a flashed PC card?

Re: Finally Upgraded to Leopard

I went the Upgrade route, which I was hesitant about, as I usually do an Erase and Install after backing up all my files (which I have 140 GB worth). Went off without a hitch.

Finally Upgraded to Leopard

I'm a bit behind the times compared to many of my counterparts, so I'll save what has already been said. Leopard mostly impresses... except for Stacks, which is rumored to be fixed with 10.5.2. One thing that did impress me that I did not notice anybody else really mention was the incredibly short i...

Well I took it to the Oakbrook Apple Store. They didn't even want to verify whether or not I was under AppleCare, they simply took it and gave me a new battery right at the store. What great service! Never even looked at the MacBook!

Re: will a digital audio cpu work in a cube?

I doubt it as the tower CPUs were very large compared to the Cube CPUs - hence all the Cube-specific processor upgrades. They need a very slim heatsink profile. I'm not sure if the pinout is different, but a regular tower CPU wouldn't physically fit inside a Cube.

Re: Mini Wont Accept Disks

Sounds like drive failure, although there may be a way to reset the drive mechanism or eject anything that might be in there. You can try launching the Terminal, and typing drutil tray eject and pressing return. That will force the drive to eject even if there isn't a disk in there, which may reset ...
