Hello out there,
I was given a mac to use at work and I am going crazy :!: Here are my issues and if I can get some help on them I would REALLY appreciate it. The computer techs in here won't even touch the macs and say "Good luck" as they whisper sucker beneath their breath.
Problem #1 - Printing. :cry:
Well, I kind of fixed this. When I first started useing this computer it went from not printing to printing three pages at a time. Very annoying when trying to print 27 or more pages! What I did to get this far is reinstall the driver. Any idea what I should do next?
It also doesn't print web pages. I don't know if this problem is related to the first one or not.
Problem #2 - CD Burner. :evil:
This computer is equiped with a CD-R. It is build right in. The problem is, it is not recognizing blank cds whne you put them in. I opened up "About this Mac" and it doesn't even recognize a CD or CDR burner at all. I've went to utilities and gone into the disk utility and gone into drive set up and it has one there but won't let me do anything with it. I thought it was funny that it says "Connection Type: Uknown" instead of unknown. Does Uknown mean something.
Problem #3 - sending folders :-|
I am used to the window's term of 'zipping' files. I understand Mac uses stuffit, so I downloaded it. Well, that program pops up on the tool bar then dissappears as fast as it came up. Then I found out that it only likes to expand files. So what do I use? What I want to do is send a whole folder instead of individual files. Is this possible on macs? If my burner was working then I wouldn't be needing this.
Problem #3 - pdf files. :eek:
I understand that Mac does not like pdf and prefers to open them in "viewer" (I think that is the program. don't quote me on that) Well, it only works half the time.
I'll start you with these questions. Ultimately I am willing to reformat the thing (can you do that with Macs?) and start over. I still have to back up the files that are already on it.
Help me please!!!
