Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions.

What is listed exactly in the left hand side in Disk Utility?

It could be one that is there.

Thanks in advance,
David.

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.


Gordon

Hi Gordon,

No problem. You don't need to accept on this question. You could have continued on the other one, sorry if that wasn't made clear.

We can continue in this one now to save any confusion. If you have any questions let me know here.

Best regards,
David.

It seems to be recording now, but the file size takes awhile. I'll let you know how it comes out.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX be here to reply if needed.

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?

Hi,

The problem is not the same as before, is it? You should now be able to connect the USB disk and see it under Devices, which is on the left in the Finder window.

If that does not look correct to you, click the Apple menu in the top left, and click About This Mac.

What version of OS X do you have on the laptop?

Sincerely,
David.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

The laptop has version 10.7.5

Hi,

Click the Finder icon on the Dock, and click the Go menu at the top.

The Go menu is to the right of the Apple in the top left.

Click Computer.

What do you see in that window?

Sincerely,
David.

I see epson, 2 Flash Players, ALsetup, Macintosh HD, Network, Remote disc, and 2 Untitled 1.

Hi,

Of those, double click the one's that have disk icons and open them to look for the data that you transferred from the original computer.

Let me know how it goes.

Sincerely,
David.

The only one with a disc icon is "remote disc" and it shows nothing.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Is it possible the I erased the data when I closed the download from the original computer by hitting "cancel"?

Hi,

To go back a step, I mean a Disk icon like the Macintosh HD, or a volume type icon. Not a circular disk.

Can you see the files in any of the other icons, when you to the Go -> Computer menu?

Sincerely,
David.
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes, all but the 2 "untiled 1" and network and remote disc.

Hi,

Then right click on each one of those and click Get Info.

Which one's say Kind: Volume ?

Check all of the icons under Computer.


Sincerely,
David.

Hi David


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.


Gordon

Hi Gordon,

None of the troubleshooting we mentioned before touched on exporting problems.

Can you give a bit more detail?

If it's a separate issue there is no need for a new question, we can still use this thread as the new question thread, and the old one is still there.

Best regards,
David.

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?


Gordon

Hi Gordon,

From what software is the data being exported, and are you trying to burn a disc?

Sincerely,
David.
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

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.


Gordon

Hi,

So the data you were originally trying to transfer, is from iPhoto on the original Mac.

What version of iPhoto is it? Click the iPhoto menu and About iPhoto.

Then when you know what version, restart the Mac and begin the process, and let me know what is the first stage you are unsure of.

Sincerely,
David.

Sincerely,
David

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

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.


Gordon

Hi,

If you want the originals instead of the slideshow, use File -> Export and save onto the USB disk.

If you want just the slideshow, select it and click File -> Export.

Let me know how that goes

David.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

It is going fine using export, but you didn't tell me how to stop the export at the end of the slides.


Gordon

Hi,

I didn't say anything about that, because I had to work out what way you were trying and suggest the best way if you need the original photos too. The way you were trying is intended for discs, that go into a DVD burner in the Mac, not to USB key.

I hope this is OK, let me know if there are any questions at all.

Yours sincerely,
David.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

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?


Gordon

Hi,

This would be by far the best thing to do. If you create new iLife projects on the laptop, you can work with the original image size. Transferring by other methods doesn't give the same flexibility.

Just exporting the files, transferring using USB, and dragging the files from USB to iPhoto on the new laptop is the right way to go about it.

Sharing from iPhoto using other methods is usually the last step, so access to the original data is not a problem. Transferring for work on another machine is better done with the original data.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Yours sincerely,
David.

What Customers are Saying:

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
