Were you using an older version of iTunes on the old computer? They have made a number of redesigns in how iTunes works. If you see a little iPod icon show up near the top of the iTunes window below the play button when you connect the iPod, click it, and then at the bottom click Sync. Or go to File>Devices>Sync.

In answer to whether a 64-bit installation shows up, listed as 32-bit in the Task Manager, per https://discussions.apple.com/message/18034729#18034729: That's normal on a 64-bit version of iTunes. (It's a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit componentry, and the itunes.exe is 32-bit.) Is your iPodservice.exe running as 64-bit? If so, and your itunes version is 9.x or ...

Here's an updated procedure for Windows 10, based on orkoden's excellent answer. I tested this process on a MacBookPro11,1 running OS X 10.11.5 (15F34). Throughout the process, directly connect all devices to your Mac. I found that certain operations failed more frequently if I used the USB hub in my monitor. In addition to the external drive that will ...

You can sacrifice sound or sleep mode and use the AHCI (it is extremely fast), but there isnt way to make it fully functional so far. So now I am using bootcamp and IDE. Problem is with the emulation of the BIOS, its too old.

Got it working finally... The first trick is to remove ALL disks from the MacPro when trying to load setup. You may leave clean HDDs or SSDs where the Mac EFI cannot find MBR or Protected MBR. After you removed all other disks the MacPro4,1 will not directly freeze after choosing EFI Boot on the installer stick. (You will have to create it like mentioned ...

It sounds like Winamp has claimed podcast/RSS feeds, rss://, on your computer. This means when an podcast/RSS feed is clicked, Winamp is launched rather than iTunes.

Yes. As discussed in the article If you don‘t see some Mac features when using Windows on your Mac, "When you upgrade or reinstall Windows on your Mac, you might need to reinstall or update the Windows support software (drivers) provided by Boot Camp."

Go with a Dual Boot; OS X and FreeBSD I personally did this on an XServe G4 (PowerPC), which was more difficult than the Intel based Macs; so your mileage will be better. My XServe had 2 1.3GHz (RISC) CPUs, 2GB RAM and 2 80GB HDD's. 1 hard drive had 2 partitions, 1 for the OS X installer (so I didn't have to wait on the slowness of the SuperDrive) and the ...

Here's what worked for me. The latest version of Microsoft Remote Desktop shows to enter the user name as "DOMAIN\user name". Well this won't work with Windows 10. I entered my username as "username@domain.com" and voila! It worked. Hope this helps someone as frustrated as myself.

I needed to run Windows XP because of one particular program which doesn't run on more modern versions of Windows. I have just discovered that the easiest and cheapest way of installing XP on a Mac is to download "VirtualBox" which is free and open-source, and use my XP installation disk which also has a valid product key. The procedure was extremely easy ...

Compiling takes CPU even if pure OSX so in a VM will take all the CPU. Fan working and hot is not an issue - it will happen (try compiling gcc under OSX on an i7 CPU all 8 threads will be running for several minutes) I would although give more memory to the VM To see what is taking CPU you need to look at Activity Monitor in OSX (which will show Parallels ...

Your computer uses two partition tables stored on your internal drive. The first is the Master Boot Record (MBR) partition table and the second is the GUID Partition Table (GPT). You used the commands fdisk and gpt to print out most of the contents of the MBR partition table and GPT, respectively. For the most part, Windows (booted via BIOS) ignores the GPT ...

The solution for fixing Boot Camp Assistant was the same as with previous versions of the OS: reset the NVRAM. I found a discussion mentioning a similar problem with an upgrade to Yosemite here that I intiially disregarded as it referenced repairing permissions and running a Disk Verify, neither of which Disk Utility appears to support anymore. As for ...

What is the capacity of your flash drive ? More than 8GB ? If yes then NTFS will do. If you want to use your flash drive on Windows, only FAT32 or NTFS will be nice. If you haven't download yet, there is a lot of software that allow OS X to write into NTFS partitions. Like TUXERA NTFS or Paragon NTFS.

exFAT is the only format which will work for you as it will allow files greater than 4GB and work on Windows. Disk Utility can format using exFAT.
