Go to View → Show Duplicate Items. Then, sort the list by date added and remove the most recently added duplicates so the originals remain. For more information on removing duplicates, see the Apple KB article: How to find and remove duplicate items in your iTunes library

I also had a similar problem. Try to identify whether the problem comes from the mouse or the iMac : try to plug the mouse on another computer and connect something else to your computer. My problem came from the usb port of my computer so I had to take it back to the apple store .. Sorry I couldn't give you a way to solve your problem immediately.

I am of the opinion that you should keep your O/S up to date unless you have a SPECIFIC reason to stay at an earlier version. E.G. incompatible software that you MUST run or a noted incompatibility with a service that you can't do without (EG some people are still having issues with MS Exchange compatibility in mail.app on Mavericks). So, your computer has ...

Booting from an install media such as a Snow Leopard install DVD will not boot to your desktop. Instead, it will boot to the OS installed on the disc and whilst this is OS X, there's no Finder for you to move files around. However, the disc does come with Terminal and you can use it to copy your files to somewhere else, another disk, etc. There are numerous ...

Generally speaking I BELIEVE that RAID requires drives of equal size. In some cases when you get drives of unequal size the RAID uses the size of the smallest drive, so in your case you would end up with a 256GB (128 + half the 256) RAID-0 Drive. HOWEVER I have not done such a thing on Apple hardware using disk utility, it MIGHT give you a RAID of 256 + 128 ...

The only way to do this is to move your users home folder over to the firewire drive. see: http://chris.pirillo.com/how-to-move-the-home-folder-in-os-x-and-why/ Of course, this also means the firewire drive will now always have to remain connected, and you will lose some speed due to the fact you are interfacing with firewire and not sata.

You can try one out of two.. first, try with a different browser... Safari isnt the only way out and Seconed, I agree with @Mark Anderson double check with the excel version.. Have you installed all the updates apple requires on the app store after upgrading to mavericks? I have a macbook air with a 4gb RAM & works fine with mavericks, ...

I would be more concerned with Excel and the version of Microsoft Office you're running. Ensure you have the latest version of Office 2011, currently at least 14.3.9 (English version) to be compatible with Mavericks. Also, depending on what you are copying/pasting, you can try "Paste Special..." in Excel and select "Text" so you only get clean text and not ...

With a machine that old, dust covering the internal components will make it difficult for the computer fans to dissipate heat. I would suggest turning the iMac over, opening the RAM cover and blowing out as much dust as you can through the vents.

How about switching off your modem? I think I experienced the same thing - my iPhone and my Mac both began reporting failure on attempting to connect to my WiFi router (Airport Extreme, 2 or 3 years old). Lucky for me I have two Airport Expresses to extend my network, so I still had WiFi. Oddly, I found that one of them, which connects to my router only ...

Can you see it if you boot from the recovery partition? Try booting while holding down Command-R. Once booted, try to connect to the Wifi. If you can see it in Recovery mode, then it's probably a corrupt system file or cache. If you still can't see it in Recovery mode, I have no idea what the problem is.

Are you using two network devices that are on the same LAN? For example, wifi and wired ethernet? Try disabling one of them. I used to have that problem and fixed it this way.

I solved this issue using a Griffin PowerMate (basically, a USB-wired button) and some AppleScript to switch Bluetooth off on the iMac, freeing up the keyboard and mouse so my MacBook (connected via TDM) could take over. It's very smooth (as smooth as can be for something non-standard). I just connect my MacBook to the iMac, hit cmd+F2 on the keyboard, ...

You used to be able to do Bluetooth PAN sharing to all iDevices. Now, it appears it works sporadically for iPad device only. Most iPhones are reported as not working. It was working at one point, and Genius Bar verified that it is no longer supported. Apple may view their icloud functionality as trumping and making computer-to-iDevice connections ...
