    iPhoto Question

    I am in the process of uploading a ton of photo albums to mobileme galleries in preparation for iCloud and I notice that when I scroll quickly thru an album, I see photos that do not show up when I go back and look at each photo in the album. Where are those photos and why are they showing up when I do a fast scroll?

    Dell Mini 10v Hackintosh SOLD

    So how much do you want in US money including shipping? And would it be an okay machine for a rather naive user? A friend of mine desperately needs an upgrade from her clamshell Macbook.

    Rare Lime Clamshell iBook

    Will this boot from an external FW hard drive running Leopard?
  4. I am unable to setup my slingbox so it can be accessed over the internet. Spent 2 hours with sling tech and he couldn't either. It's working fine on my internal network, so it's a problem with airport and IP address and port mapping. My network consists of 2 AEBSs and 2 AEs. The AEBS that the slingbox is connected to is setup to extend the network. It does connect to the internet. My main router is connected to a DSL Modem. I have a static IP address. Went to the Apple Forums and followed directions to downgrade the AEBS firmware to 7.4.1. That did not help. Also followed directions to use the DHCP Reservation option on my main AEBS and then use the generated IP address for the slingbox port mapping setup. None of this worked. Any ideas what the problem could be?

    Installing Software Options

    Thanks. So I guess I wasn't really missing something obvious. To bypass the registration I use command+Q, right?
  6. I'm not a newbie, but this seems like a question that probably has an easy answer that I am just overlooking. I am selling my MBP on ebay. I want to install iLife '09 and iWork '09 on it after I do the clean install. How do I do that? I'm pretty sure that after I install Leopard it will restart my machine and open into that Intro page that won't let you do anything and I want that to stay unblemished. So how do I do this? Thanks. Pat
  7. This MBP is in excellent condition. It has been used 99% of it's short life attached to an LCD. I am selling because I need to get something smaller.

    audiobooks in music folder

    I'm not sure you can. How about just making a separate playlist for them and titling it 'Audiobooks/ipod"?
  9. Thought I'd seen the end of these annoying dropouts but they started up again with iTunes 8. I will be playing something over the speakers attached to my airport express and all of a sudden the connection just drops and I get about 5 seconds of silence. My computer speakers keep on working. Took the problem to the Apple Forums, followed their suggestions, to make sure airport firmware was updated, trash the airport utility preferences, restart airport express etc. None of it helped. Anyone here solved this problem or have any ideas?

    Please Help Me

    I'm surprised that it used to work as well as it did. The old airport cards are not very powerful and that's the only kind you can use in the G3 iBooks. If you pick up a refurbished airport express in the apple store and plug it in in his room, it should take care of the problem; and they are pretty inexpensive.

    Elgato Turbo 264

    I purchased one of these a few weeks ago not realizing that I wouldn't be able to rip protected DVDs with it. Or can I? Is there software that will actually work in conjunction with the Turbo? Thanks.
  12. Go to System Preferences>advanced(down in right hand corner)> preferred networks In that window you can delete your neighbor's network by clicking on it and then clicking the minus sign. You can also drag your network to the top of the list, if others show up there.
  13. You can try changing the channel, but the thing that would work best is to buy a phone that doesn't use the 2.4 frequency. That worked for me.

    Connecting an iMac via satellite?

    Probably makes more sense to call Apple and let them walk her thru it.
