Hi,

I was just reading about this issue this morning.

What Mac do you have?
Go to your Apple Menu and choose About this Mac...
Then click on the More Info button.

In here, select all of the text on the right side and then paste it into a reply to me here.

I'll let you know what i think when I see your configuration.

Wow.. Ok, you meet all of the criteria that Apple claims is needed...More than 64MB Video Ram, and the Processor is a G4 at 1.67 MHz.

Now you say you downloaded it. Do you mean installed from the disk? Or did you actually Download it from somewhere?

If from the disk, did you do a complete install? Or customize it?

If a download, where did you get it from?

Mike
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
sorry, from a disk. Did not customize it.
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
Ok, so the complete iLife suite was installed.

I was a little off in my assessment of your Mac.

Here is the Apple iPhoto Knowledgebase article that describes what it available to your Mac:

Ken Burns
Classic

That's it.

Read the article for more info, but basically the G4 processor is what is holding it back.

Sorry,
Mike

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Thanks - that's disappointing news.

Guess I can't install a new processor.
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
No, sorry. Not for a laptop. If you had a G4 desktop, maybe a G5 upgrade.

Yeah, bad news for sure.

Thanks for the Accept though. I do appreciate that.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
