answers: 1) Don't know how I deleted it; went through downloads and purged a pile of stuff to trash.
2) Emptied trash.
3) Did not move anything from iphoto library to trash.
I cannot open the iphoto folder...there is none! I repeat, only the iphoto ICON remains on my desktop, and it has a question mark on it. When I click on it and then the "options" appears, which only gives the option of removing the icon!
No, I have no backup and yes, there were many photos in the library.
Was able to do as instructed. NO iphoto listed in applications.
processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Macbook Pro 4, 1
SMC version 1.27f3
Sorry. Version 10.6.8
I am using "Snow Leopard"
Yes. I have unopened Install disc 1 and Install disc 2
David: Got to end of instructions but there is NO IPHOTO option to check on the list of apps! What now?
No iphoto choice there either. Should I try disc 2?
David, I am beginning to feel rather helpless here. Disc 2 says "applications are on disc 1! What is going on?
Maddening! Disc 2 says to use Disc 1 for applications. Disc 1 wants me to reinstall the bundle...will this affect all the other apps?
No other discs. only the Snow Leopard install disc. Got the computer brand new with the 2 discs unopened until now.
No choices given on disc 2 as on disc 1.
Not sure what yo mean about Reveal options on disc 1? Will retry that.
I will review disc 2 for the 3rd time.
Bundled software appears as a choice on disc 1. Dare I reinstall the whole thing (since it must include iphoto)?
Disc 2 has an "xcode" thingy and nothing to do with apps. In fact, it says to use disc 1 for apps and either custom or bundled apps.
I will go and use disc 1 and the "bundled" option.
Question: I upgraded my OS to Snow Leopard when it came out. Could that have a bearing on anything?
Gritted my teeth and installed the '' bundle' from disc 1. GOT IPHOTO BACK AND WITH PHOTOS! Had to use disc 2 to finish the reinstall.
Will now use flash drive to save those photos I hadn't saved before.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX learned something today, too, I hope?
I alwAys keep track of any updates and install same.
One last question and then I'm done: What kind of external blank hard drive do you recomment?
