I had norton but I deleted it. At least I though I did. How do I check to see if I have a firewall turned on? I don't know how to check that.
Ok there are no choices on the security tab for firewall. I can't find it. The only choices are-
turn on file vault or set master password.
There are also tabs on virtual memory?
Or log in?
Its weird there is nothing about a firewall.
My firewall is under the sharing section and it is not turned on either but network time is checked off?
Yes can you have someone else help me then? I am going to bed and will have to continue this conversation with someone else then tomorrow.
I have 2 internal hard drives. One that originally came with my computer. It got filled up so I installed a 2nd internal hardrive that I know have my applications on including itunes. I also have an external usb drive remotely attached.
Ok I have 1 software install disc
4 software install discs which are labeled 1 of 4
I then have the current mac osx tiger version 10.4, do you mean this one? The other ones are older versions.
I also have an apple hardware test disc too.
Hi the other discs were verified and they didn't need repair.
Ok I got it.
I have to go to work now so I'll have to try this tonight or tomorrow. I'll let you know what happens
So far the disc problem didn't help. It still has that message that I gave you in the beginning and can't restore my ipod.
I'll try the PRAM.
I'm thinking this computer is a bomb now.
I think I tried this with my ipod but I don't know if I did it right. What's the home button and power button. I have the ipod classic with the big wheel in the center. I restarted my computer in safemode and then restarted it and it was ok. thank god. whats a cable on the ipod screen?
please just tell me where the home and power button is on my ipod?
So if this doesn't work I have to reinstall my system? Won't that wipe everything out on my computer.
I just buy a new one this computer is a G4 powerpc.
Well if you have the money yes that would be my suggestion:1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
You can Archive and install
so the home button is the menu button and the power button is the center button? I know what the toggle switch is. I just want to know so that when I try doing what you said when I connect the itunes I know which button to not let go of.
Hi Mike I'm going to try this action with the ipod in a few days. I have a hairy week I'm in school for my doctorate degree and have finals this week and don't have time to breathe btw work and school so I may not get back to you on this for a few days. Don't think that I forgot about this. I just have to focus on my school this week. Thanks
when does the question time out because the question hasn't been solved yet. I'm not going to pay for the question if its not solved. I thought this would get solved quickly. I appreciate your help but I don't have a lot of time this week to be dealing with my computer. Its time consuming and I work and school. I will try the ipod thing this week holding the keys down.
I'll get back to you.
Hi Mike please give me a refund. the ipod is still not showing up in itunes.
