  • The problem you are running into is that these files are not real AVIs, but rather are a bastardized version of H.264 (or something else) wrapped in something that might resemble an AVI wrapper, but mainly uses the .avi name in order to get Windows …
  • Apple Menu->System Preferences->Network->AirPort->Advanced...->Preferred Network: Make sure your network is there, and is on the top of the list. Any networks here will be auto-logged-in.

  • The person giving you the advice was not talking about setting up a profile on the 'Express, but rather a "Location" on the computer. Locations allow you to have multiple sets of networking setups, and to change from one group of setting to another.…
  • Windows viruses (Macro Viruses excepted) cannot run on the MacOS side. They are compiled code and the Windows executable format does not work under MacOS, and vise-versa. From Windows you can see the files on your MacOS volume (with BootCamp 3 drive…

  • There are four main ways of getting MacOS X to be able to use NTFS volume read/write: 1) The open-source NTFS-3G for Macintosh project 2) A commercial version of that same project. 3) Paragon software's NTFS for Macintosh 4) Enabling the…

  • The most probable answer is that Apple will not be putting USB3 in their computers until the chipsets that they use support them, and since http://www.engadget.com/2009/11/04/nvidia-confirms-intel-chipsets-wont-support-usb-3-0-until-2011">Intel w…
  • To give a little more detail: HDMI is a superset of DVI, so anything that can drive a DVI display can drive a HDMI display with a cheap adapter (all it is doing is changing the pinouts). As KingOfSomewhereHot said this does not get you sound (nor so…
