I had a interal disk that wouldn't show in the finder at all but was showing as mounted on disk utility. I could get to the disk through a file alias so I know the disk was there and working. I tried numious posts including this one (http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/apple/mac-os-x/threads/94420/hard-drive-not-visible-mac-osx) with not luck. I figured it must be a permissions problem, so I ran the termal command to show all hidden files (without the brackets): (defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES) (killall Finder) And Behold the HD was there as a hiddden file. Then I found another termail command that makes hidden files …

I have a really strange situation with my storage device. I would be really grateful if somebody could guide me through this. System details: Mac mini 2.0 i7 8GB 500GBx2 External storage: My studio Book WD 6TB (inside probably 3TBx2 raid). file format: NTFS Connected to Mac through Firewire. intermediate between mac and NTFS: TUXERA NTFS My 6TB had around 5.4 TB data in it and was running slow. I thought of defragmenting it (which I regret so much now) using stellar disk defrag. After 3 days of defrag, when it finished with "done" popup, Mac mini didnt show the …

I was trying to install windows on my MacBook and things weren't working during the windows side of the install. After restarting and going to the utility screen by pressing cmd + R, I tried to do a time machine restore, it isn't finding my Mac HD when it asks where I want to restore to. Also in disk utility it says "virtual whole disk" where Macintosh HD usually is. Lastly, when I restart holding option to get the boot menu, the Mac boot option comes up but nothing happens. I stay on a gray screen with a "no solution" …

Remember when you had to use a whole host of 'utility downloads' just to keep your PC running smoothly? Windows has had optimization tools built in for ages now, so surely the days of PC optimization suites are long over? Not so according to iolo, which has just released System Mechanic 11 - the latest suite of such tools to hit the market since it first launched way back in 1998. ![dweb-sysmech02](/attachments/small/0/dweb-sysmech02.jpg "align-right") With over 40 million users since those early days, System Mechanic is certainly the best known of the tune-up suites for Windows. Here at DaniWeb [we last …

I've completed an assignment which takes a file with records, sorts them, and creates a table with the utility 'latex'. The interesting part is that my scripts runs perfectly on my Mac (Darwin) but it runs slowly with no response (or doesn't work depending on how you look at it) on my school's setup. The error message I get from 'latex' is: "*! **LaTeX Error: There's no line here to end.***" with lots of other mumbo jumbo. I get this error from the **latex tmp.tex** command. Here is my 'tmp.tex' file: \documentclass{article} \pagestyle{empty} \begin{document} \begin{table} \centering \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|} \hline name&exam1&exam2&exam3\\ \hline …

I recently downloaded a computer game for my mac, but it does not open up when I click on it. I am under the impression that I need to make a virtual disk image for the file in order to play the game on my comp. I do not know how to do that at all, and this is my first time using the disk utility app, so any help would be greatly appreciated!! thanks!

So here's the thing, it is now some 10 years since the first iPod was launched and the way we listen to music changed forever. One of the things that changed, if you are anything like me, is that your iTunes database became the centre of your musical life. Unfortunately, across those 10 years that database can get kind of dirty. A quick look at my iTunes database reveals a whole bunch of tracks with no album artwork, which is no big deal I grant you, but also a whole bunch of songs with spelling mistakes or where the import …

Rather than cover all the same ground again, may we take the liberty of referring you to [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/reviews/review280960.html"]our earlier review of System Mechanic 9.5[/URL] which provides all the basics of what the software is and what it does? In a nutshell though, System Mechanic is a collection of diagnostic, repair and optimization tools which have been engineered to work together in order to 'tune-up' your computer. It helps fix errors that can cause crashes and slow down performance, boost Internet speeds and Windows start times, clean out clutter and generally ensure your computer runs smoothly and speedily.

Below is a Base Conversion Class that will take in any number (up to around 2.4 billion digits (limited by string.substring's integer property)), It will convert from any base to any base (from 2-36 inclusive) It does have some simple error handling such as if you enter a number that is incorrect for its base (ex: FF in base 15 and under), it will also throw an error if you enter a base lower than 2 or higher than 36. This code does use the BigInteger class so .NET 4.0 is a requirement, you must also add a reference (as …

[ATTACH=right]14704[/ATTACH][B]Reviewer's View[/B] I'm the kind of person who has an almost religious fervour when it comes to keeping data backed up, perhaps unsurprisingly as I am an IT professional and my livelihood depends upon it. So when it came to the hands-on testing of System Mechanic 9.5 for this DaniWeb review I had no qualms about going real world, biting the bullet and letting the computer tune-up software loose on my day to day work netbook. That, and the fact that System Mechanic has been used by more than 23 million consumers to fix more than 70 million computers over …
