    strange issue with my HDD and Xbox 360

    Well I can answer this one. First watch out for a few things. And this is why it wont work even if you got it to work out.A fat partition will not recognize a partition of a few gigs to begin with second fat partitions can only allow files as big as 4 gb maximum. Third even if you got the content on the drive the 360 only recognizes a few file types. Fourth it dose not support many codec. And the only Hd content that plays in it is HD DVDS with the extra drive and the games. So just give up now. Here are a few better solutions that work for you. I use a program called connect 360 or 360 connect i can stream it right from my mac to the 360.

    CD stuck in Macbook Drive

    If none of the software workarounds work for you. Try this at your own risk. When you look at the felt opening where the CD/Dvd gets inserted there is a pin sized hole to the side of it. Left or Right depending on which model. Use a paper clip and press the emergency release button that is hidden in felt. Also was it a weird shaped cd? Below is a link to apples site that shows acceptable cd sizes and shapes for slot loading drives. http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=88275

    Audio input problem

    Yeah I am as stomped about this as you guys. I just found a place called maclegion that has some users complain about the same thing. I will check in there. They seem to think its from the last firmware update. Thanks for your help will donate to maccast again soon.

    Audio input problem

    No I just made a new one. Also I just did the reset adam e-mailed me about. No dice. In addition I just did a install from a tiger DVD and not the restore dvds this time. Installed ilife and QT pro again. The audio is still happening. No mic. Mic works in iChat still dose not work with quicktime or garageband. Thanks so much guys. This is alot of help and I know you dont have to help me out. So thanks very much. I might as well just schedule time off and go to a apple store far away. This problem is beyond me.

    Audio input problem

    I did a complete format and reinstall. I kept nothing on the system. I did not archive and install or anything of that sort.

    Audio input problem

    Just tried a Usb mic again. Same problem still going on. Its weird Why would a internal mic work for Ichat but nothing else. In addition even if it was broken hardware. A broken sound card why would a usb one not work? It dose not make sense.

    Audio input problem

    That is correct. Right now it is just the OS 10.4.10 and no other applications besides the ones that come with OS X like ichat. I did not install ilife, ms office, my printer or anything else. Just the updates in Software update as of this clean install. It is funny though. That I can use it in video conferences with ichat but nothing else. My OS restore disc is flawless. Hardware test says everything is fine and working.

    Audio input problem

    I do not think that would be it especially after I did a complete format and install of the OS. But I will give it a try. Thanks for your help so far.

    Audio input problem

    I was hoping you could help me. I am using a iMac intel core 2 duo. Its one of the first to come out. I am a tech expert and still cant find and solutions or even chats or talks about this problem I am having. about: Audio works fine the volume keys are working fine. I use them I hear the beep sound it makes. I can use iTunes and everything is good. I can use ichat for video conferencing wonderful. No problems. Problem: I have gotten a error when I go to record audio by its self in quicktime pro. I have tried internal mic and external such as usb and the standard 3.5 mm jack. Same result. It cant find a audio device. error -a150. So i go to the system preferences thinking I have to select the device to record with like os 9. No big problem. But behold it says "no input devices found". At this point i check my speakers and ichat again. No problems with them. They work fine. Now being a experienced mac user i am I went back through and have looked to see if me or my wife installed any new soft ware. But nothing. Just your basic ilife 06, ms office, mail and safari. No plugins or anything on this machine. So since there is bearly anything installed we decided a fresh OS install would be a no biggy. So install went fine. But again can not find a input device. Audio output is fine. The internal mic works fine in ichat for video conferences. But i cant record in quicktime pro. So I downloaded a few free-wares around the net and even then I cant record my voice. Audio output is fine and i can talk to people over the internet with ichat fine. I have been to many boards and forums and cant figure this out. Many people do not know where to begin with a problem like this. Can you help? Apple told me to take it to a genius bar but my nearest one os well over 1 hour away. zip code 17325 Do you think any of your listeners have had this problem before? I have posted in the forums.

    New macbook and macbook pros.

    Yeah i thought they got a revision not too long ago. I read a article or post or something on appleinsider that talked about patents that were filed and the possibility of apple refreshing their line by the ease of migrating to better components that were more eco friendly. It said after the imac those were the next best 2 to be redone. I sort of doubted it but hey, just spreading the mac rumors around i like the hype anyways.

    New macbook and macbook pros.

    I seen a few things floating around the web. Here they are summed up. i think there might be new macbooks and stuff but i don't think the macbooks would get a separate graphics card. In a attempt to make the line more environmentally friendly I predict that new macbook and macbook pros are to come very soon. Better glass screens and maybe a flash based hard-drive, and backlit keyboards. Macbook might get a ati or nvidia card.
  15. Im not a patent person or anything but can this patent describe maybe a keyboard with a glass or plastic surface? I have heard rumors about a new keyboard possiably with a new imac. We will have to see i guess.
