I have two 1TB My Book Studio Editions that are hooked up to a Mac Pro through two Firewire 800 ports.  The problem I'm experiencing is a couple weeks ago one of them stopped working.  The Mac Pro won't recognize it and the light won't come on.  I could feel the hard drive spinning inside though.  I questioned if it had something to do with the switch and if I needed to turn it on to get the light to work. I have two of these drives so I went to the 2nd drive and...
I have an early 2008 Mac Pro and have two hard drives in it.  The main system drive is a 2TB Western Digital drive I installed about a year ago.  The 2nd drive is a 1TB Seagate drive which is the original drive that came with the Mac Pro. When looking at Disk Utility a few days ago I realized the drive is showing up in Red and it's saying that SMART is failing.  I've never had this happen before and like having a warning.  First Question: When SMART shows up as...
I have a OS X Lion 10.7.3 based Macbook Pro and use the newest version of SuperDuper to do backups.  I back up to an OWC external hard drive. I have used this system for around 3 years on multiple laptops/drives with no problems. For some reason it won't work now on my Macbook Pro. When I backup it fails at a certain part of the backup. I thought it was simply my system had too much open and was running slow so did a restart and didn't open anything other than...
I am going to give Google Drive a try and I realize they don't have an iOS app yet but everywhere I'm reading that there is an app for both Windows and Mac OS X but I can't find it anywhere.  Where can I download the Google Drive Mac App?
I recently purchased an iPhone 4S and as part of that purchased a screen protector for it. I've gone through many screen protectors with previous iPhone's I've owned but none are as good as the one I purchased for the iPhone 4S. It's a screen protector from Monaco and it's a great screen protector but also it does a good job of making your screen more anti-glare which is great in sunlight plus it also has a privacy filter and also does a good job of protecting from...
When I'm in iDVD and go to burn a disc it goes through all the steps and at the last step where it asks if you continue and burn it freezes and won't allow you to push the okay/yes button and ejects the disc. This happens with several slideshows and also several DVD's. We are using DVD-R's. Does anyone know what could be causing? We're doing this on a MacBook that's approximately 3 years old and it's running Leopard.
I currently have a CradlePoint PHS300 router and it works fine with both 3G and 4G (HSPA+). I currently have a 4G modem but want to upgrade to a 4G HSPA+/LTE modem on the AT&T network, likely the Momentum. Unfortunately the PHS300 does not support LTE modem and only supports HSPA+ for 4G. For this reason I need to upgrade to a new wireless router. I have spoken with CradlePoint about their routers and they have the CTR35 among others but the only problem is none of...
I have an iPad 1 and skipped the iPad 2 but am upgrading to the iPad 3. I plan to buy a new screen protector for my iPad 3 but also, there are two items I'd like to use from my iPad 1 with the iPad 3. The first is a case that's made by Monaco. It's a leather book type case that the iPad fits in and it covers it up. The second accessory is an iPad 1 stand made by AiData. It is a stand that sits on a desk and holds the iPad. I have read many articles today about the...
I have an Airport Extreme Base Station and am wondering if there's a way I can block certain devices such as a Mac from connecting to this router or using the internet? It's okay if I simply block them from the router but would like the option for it to connect to the router such as using the printer but I want to block the internet. Is this possible? Thanks
I have an early 2008 Mac Pro running OS X Lion. It currently has 8GB of memory which consists of 4 memory modules of 2GB each, 2 on each of the memory cards. I really want to go to 32GB but likely will go to 16GB. I do a lot of virtualization using VMWare often running Windows and Linux partitions so I think the additional memory will help a lot. I plan to purchase from OWC which is where the memory I currently have is from but I see two options. One is to buy 4...
