    iTunes Match

    I purchased a Pink Floyd album two hours ago. The album shows up in my purchased folder but not in my music folder. I've had this happen many times. It seems to take forever for it to get in my music folder. What do i do if i want to buy a song and put it on my iPod. Right now i have to wait a day for it to show up in my music folder. It seems like it doesn't show up until iTunes matches it or something. Any ideas?

    Time Machine

    I do not have an external hard drive large enough to use as a time machine drive. Can I tell time machine to use two external drive to back up onto? Or do I need to buy another drive big enough to back up onto?

    Remember Passwords

    All of a sudden safari on my iBook won't autofill user names or passwords. Is there a way to reset this so it asks if safari should remember these again?

    "Part of a compilation"

    Ok but on the iPhone or iPod is where I want them to be grouped together if I search by artist. I don't want a song by Britney Spears on the Blackout CD to to be grouped separately from a song by Britney Spears featuring the Ying Yang Twins on the same Blackout CD.
  7. What exactly does "Part of a compilation" mean and what does it do when it's checked? When ever I download an CD that has a track that is featuring someone else it shows up as a different artist on my iPhone. I usually just remove the Featuring artists name and all is good. But i'd kind of like to still see who it's featuring. What do you do? Any help is always appreciated.

    iPhone Protection

    My contract with Sprint is over on Saturday so I am going to the Apple store for an iPhone. I would like to get some kind of protection for it as soon as possible. Does anyone have a suggestion for a case or skin?

    iMac 800mhz

    I am thinking about buying a used 800mhz iMac. Were these good machines or am I looking for trouble?

    iBook won't start

    When I started from the CD I got a picture that showed how to replace the batteries in the mouse. I didn't have a mouse connected and the track-pad wasn't working. I connected a USB mouse and then i could move the courser. So I reinstalled OSX and it's working now. Thanks for all your help.

    iBook won't start

    My iBook won't start up. This morning the screen saver was on kind of dim and I could see the spinning circle flower looking thing in the center of the screen. That's all i could get it to do. I held the power button down and it turned off but will not come on now. I get the chime, then the grey screen and the apple and the spinning circle thing and thats all. I let it do this for an hour or so but thats all it does. I tried putting the OSX disc in and holding down the c when it boots but it still does the same thing. Any ideas? It's a 1.33 12" iBook. Help!

    iMac Ram upgrade

    I have a 24" iMac with 1gig of ram. I want to upgrade to 2gigs. Can I put the ram I am taking out of my iMac and put it into my daughters 2.0 ghz core duo MacBook? It only came with 512. Crucial shows these two machines as having different part numbers for 1gig. CT541623 for the MacBook and CT582927 for the iMac. OWC shows them as being the same.

    Whenever I burn a CD of photos from iPhoto I end up with the full size file and also a thumbnail of the same photo. How can I burn only the full size files?

    24" iMac

    I currently have a 17" 1.8 iMac and am going to upgrade to a 24" model. I need some advice on the video card. Should I upgrade to the 7600 GT? Is it worth the $125? I don't game. I will be using Aperture as my photo application. I shoot in RAW so the files are kind of large but my 1.8 handles this pretty well now. I don't do any video editing yet. I do plan to get a video camera sometime in the future so I will use iMovie for that. Will I need the better card for that or will the stock system be ok? Thanks in advance you your help.
  15. I have a 300mhz blueberry iBook I installed OSX Panther into. It only has a 3 gig HD and now it is so full I can't even install updates. I understand that it is a bit of a project to replace the drive. Sounds like fun to me. My question is can I just go to Comp-USA or Best Buy and pick up a modern notebook hard-drive or is the drive in this iBook different? I see rather small (6-gig to 10-gig drives) used on some web sites. Do I need one of these? They seem expensive for what you're getting. I appreciate any help. Shaun
