This time when I clicked on disk utility it listed the USB device. I will continue to follow your earlier suggestions and see what happens.
It seems to be recording now, but the file size takes awhile. I'll let you know how it comes out.
I think I got the data onto the USB but when I put it in the other computer - a laptop - I can't seem to get it to down load. What now?
The laptop has version 10.7.5
I see epson, 2 Flash Players, ALsetup, Macintosh HD, Network, Remote disc, and 2 Untitled 1.
The only one with a disc icon is "remote disc" and it shows nothing.
Is it possible the I erased the data when I closed the download from the original computer by hitting "cancel"?
Yes, all but the 2 "untiled 1" and network and remote disc.
David, I thank you for trying to assist me today, but I have had a very trying day, and I will now quit for the night.
I was exporting my show and when I came in to check on progress, I had a message - Job could not be competed, OSStatus error.
I was trying to burn it again for more detail, and it wouldn't stop after it got to the end of the file. In trying to stop it, my daughter who does this all the time through her work, inadvertently hit cancel, so now we have started over. Is there a way to stop the export without hitting cancel?
The data is being exported from iPhoto - it is a slideshow with music. I am trying to get it on a USB so that it can go onto a laptop.
I am using iPhoto '09 version 8.1.2(424).
I just restarted the Mac before I again started the export. When it reaches the end of the 635 pictures in the slideshow, I want to be able to stop the export at that point.
It is going fine using export, but you didn't tell me how to stop the export at the end of the slides.
I assume from your last response that I would be better off transferring the original slides using USB and then create the slide show on the laptop, is that correct?
I wish we had gotten to that last response sooner, but such is life. Thank you for your help and your patience.
