I bought a Seagate Freeagent 500gb drive to compliment my Macbook pro's internal storage. When I have the drive connected to the computer (through a USB hub) and I put the computer to sleep, it will immediately wake up and show an error as if the drive had been unplugged from the computer. I tried ejecting the drive and then sleeping it, but the same problem occurs. Seagate's website had nothing about this problem, although it sounds like some kind of problem with the...
Any word on when those will be mac-ready?
I'm looking to upgrade the stock Nvidia FX 5200 in my 1.6 gHz G5 with either a ATI Radeon 9600 or a 9800. Is the huge price difference worth the preformance gain between the two? They both seem similar on paper, but I was wondering if you guys had anything to say about it. Also, is there a way i can get either of the cards aftermarket with an ADC port on it, becuase I like having the two ports right there on the monitor. Thanks for the input.
You see, i only use the TV for playing Warcraft, Unreal, and other games that I need to run at 800 x 600, or for displaying iPhoto slideshows. For regular use, its at 1024 x 768. BTW, you havn't lived unless you've played either of those games on a 35" TV and 500 watt stereo system.
Actually, I have an older 700 mhz iMac that can't go straight to the "Video Adapter" from Apple that converts from the mini-VGA to S-video and composite. I had to buy the Apple VGA adapter to convert to plain VGA, then I used a VGA to TV converter to get the S-video for the TV. One of the draw backs on using the TV is that you can only get 800 x 600 resolution. But this lower resolution is surpisingly crisp on the TV.
On the iMac you can only decrease the brightness to a certin point, but the display won't turn off. And the Energy Saver option of having the display fall asleep won't work because the comupter is still being used, I'm just not looking at the built in display.\
I have my TV connected to the mini VGA port on my iMac. Now if I'm using the TV exclusivly is it possible to turn off the screen on the iMac itself? I couldn't find anything at www.info.apple.com or the built in help. I want to save the light inside the iMac's LCD as much as possible, and leaving it on for long periods of time while I'm not using it at all seems liek a waste. Any ideas?
I'm having troubles too with Logitech drivers. My MX 700 can't use any of its extra buttons. I tried installing the LCC stuff again, but the installer hangs before it can install anything.
Does anyone have any pictures of these "spots"? Know what they're from? They have me intrigued. I never heard of any LCD's developing spots on them, from any company. Seem's like Apple's quality control's gone south for the winter.
How many people on here play TFT regularly? Maybe if we get enough people we could start our own AI clan. I'm on US East under the name RandNum. Anyone intrested post something in here and I'll check back.
