    Uh oh, Dead 10.4???

    Ok, So today i figured it was time for an update to my iBook running 10.4.11. No problem i thought, a regular update procedure, download, install restart. That was not the case. I downloaded and installed fine. But I did download a Security Update, which i am not sure was a good idea, but it could have been another update... The programs i installed are: iTunes 7.7, Safari 3.1.2 and a security update, i think the latest one to Tiger. SO I installed, and went to restart. But Safari froze up (old version mind you) and the restart failed. This may be where the problem started. SO I just restarted again, this time it worked. But when the computer started up, i got to the Start Up screen, the Apple Logo with spinning gear, and then it just sat there. The hard drive was doing something, but it just stayed there, and eventually the hard drive quietened, and the Mac just kept on going, but it never made it to the Login window. Any ideas whats wrong?? I am starting up from my 10.2 CD now, and that took 25 mins alone to boot up from. Hope you can help, Thanks P.S: Sorry for the long post!!!

    USB Internet Connection?

    Sorry, I should have been more descriptive of what I wanted t do. I wanted to set up a connection from my router through USB to my iBook. My router has a USB Port on it. Can anyone help?
  11. Hi All, I have an iBook Clamshell. I would like to get an internet connection through the USB port on the computer. Is it possible. My Dad was doing this when he moved, because he didn't have WiFi, but I can't find any way in OS X to set one up. Does anyone know if this is possible, and if it is then how can I set up a USB Connection? Thanks

    iTunes Locked Library File

    Thanks ganbustein, That solved the problem. Thanks also for the links. A restart fixed the problem and also sped my machine up abit, it had beenin sleep for about a week, on and off.
  13. Hi All, I logged out of OS X today, and when I logged back in and launched iTunes it gave me an error message saying that the library file was locked, or I didn't have permission to access it. I should have permission since I was on an admin account. Any ideas? Thanks

    Online Storage

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I will take a look at them later, I only have a little while to post. I was originally looking at .Mac, but realized that it was a rip-off, it costs £120 a year for the family pack, which is only 5 people, and only 20GB of storage. No way. Thanks again for your suggestions.
