PC accept Mac disks?

Q: PC accept Mac disks?

Is there ANY product out there that will allow a PC to accept Mac formatted disks (zips, floppys, etc.)?

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: PC accept Mac disks?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi
I'm new to this, so bear with me.
i have a sony vaio notebook that is sick. when i start it up it beeps continuously for about 5 minutes. then the beeping stops and the screen (which has been blank) runs a status bar and after about 5 minutes more i get the login screen. only everything in the log-in screen is being highlighted in a very fast manner and does not stop until i hit enter. at this point i can login and it boots up. sometimes this systematic highlighting happens while i am in windows as well, but that hasn't happened for a while.
i have been trying to run the recovery disks that i made, but they are not working. this is what I'd really like to get resolved. they will not boot up when i restart the computer. is there a way around this? i have a few copies of xp, but it will not let me use them either.
i upgraded to a nice big desktop, but i still need the laptop for travel and it would be nice (of course) if the thing worked better.
any advice?
thanks

A:vaio laptop beeps, slows and won't accept recovery disks

Welcome to TSF....

THe beeping could be loose RAM chips so with the computer turned-off open the door for the RAM and reseat the RAM. Also make sure that the boot order in BIOS is set to CD-ROM first.

If the beeping keeps going please give Sony tech support a call for where a repair center is that they recommend.

Can any kind person explain the difference between a

Boot disk and Restore disk?

The reason I am asking is my Hard disk appears to be on its last legs and when it finally goes I will have to buy and install a new one.

I have a Restore CD (actually 2 that came with my computer) and I have read a little about Boot disks.

so .... When I start my computer with the new Hard disk what do I use? (as it will be blank)

a Boot disk?
or a Restore disk?
or both?


many thanks
 

A:Boot disks and Restore disks?

A boot disk is a disk that your computer can use to boot. A restore disk is a disk that contains some sort of restore information.

A boot disk may contain restore information and a recovery disk may be bootable.

In your case, you should just boot from the restore CD and follow the pretty on-screen instructions.

I recently changed ISPs and added a Netgear wireless router to the modem. I configured the modem and router useing my PC laptop, and generated a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption. I was able to successfully connect with my WEP Key on my PC and on my TiVo, but my Mac (which is a new MacBook) will not accept my WEP Key, saying there is an error in joining the network.

The dropdown menu in the AirPort window has four choices: (1) WEP Password, (2) WEP 40/128-bit hex, (3) WEP 40/128-bit ASCII and (4) LEAP. I'm assuming that since my WEP key is set to 64-bit encryption, that I should use the first option, which is what I have been trying.

I was able to connect my MacBook to my old wirelss signal, which I have not disconnected it (it's cable-based and runs from a different modem/router; my new ISP is DSL-based), and that signal also has a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption.

I also tried disabling the WEP key encryption for a time, and then I was able to secure a connection to the new signal, but I want to maintain the encryption. Please help.

Hi everybody,

it's my first post here and I have a serious problem.

My old laptops motherboard burned, so I stripped the RAM and HDD an threw the rest away. I bought a used Toshiba Satellite Pro without the HDD.

I put the old one into new laptop. But I had set HDD pw on my old laptop. I remember it 100% correct but the new computer does not unlock the drive. It says: HDD Password Invalidate Press any key to continue.

I tried going through Bios but it says "Registered". AndI cant select the Drive, going up/down on the list they just skip this drive.

I also tried booting straight from windows Disc to format and reinstall Windows but it askes HDD password before even booting up the disc.
Any Ideas how I can get rid of password or get the computer to accept it?
eidt: I dont necessarily need the data from the disc. I do lose some valuable pictures but I am happy if I can just format and install new wimdows.

A:Will my mobo accept this ram?

More than likely your motherboard will accept it, but it will only run at PC100 speed. And I doubt you will have any problems, just you will not be running the ram at it maximum capacity. If you could give us some more info, like what kind of mobo, ram, etc. you have it would be good.

I have an ABIT KX7333 board with AWARD Bios/softmenu 3. I am using corsair pc2700 ddr ram and an Athlon xp 1800+. Everytime I go into my BIOS and change anything, namely the memory CAS from 2.5 to 2, or anything with the memory for that matter, it won't boot.

There have always been different types of DVD RW disks +R and -R being the main ones, check the specs of your Writer to see if you can burn the disks you have.

Please help me :-)

A:Windows7 only accept 2 GB RAM

Hi,

Welcome to 7 forums

In this regard, i guess the problem is with the 2 GB RAM or the RAM slot. The issue is not with Windows 7.

► Lets say RAM 1 works, RAM 2 caused the issue.

* To find if the defect is with that RAM or the slot, remove the working RAM 1 and place the RAM 2 in that same slot.

* If your Windows works fine, then the problem may be with the other RAM slot. If the RAM 2 causes BSOD now, then the issue is with the RAM. You may have to replace that RAM 2.

* Additionally, you can try interchanging the RAM slots and boot up !.

Hope this helps

Ok, I've got a dual P3 700 at work that we really can't use in it's current state at work. It's a fiery tower that was meant to be a print server from EFI . They won't even support the hardware on their website. It's got a Tyan Thunderbolt mainboard in it. They used their proprietary BIOS when they built it so you couldn't change the OS. After finally figuring out what mainboard was in there I went to Tyan's website and downloaded their version of the BIOS and flashed it. Now when I try to install 2K, I can partition the drive with no problems but it keeps telling me that I need to choose a windows 2000 compatible partition to install it on. It doesn't give me the option to format the partition in the setup. I am able to go into the recovery console and use the format command to format the partition, but it keeps giving me the same error in the setup. The hard drive is a SCSI IBM running from the onboard SCSI ultra 2. I checked all the BIOS & SCSI BIOS settings and they seem to be correct. I tried downloading the latest SCSI drivers and loading them before the install, but that doesn't make a difference either. I've also tried different partition sizes with no luck. What I don't get is why can I partition the drive and format it (in recovery console), but can't install on it? Can anyone give me any ideas on what to do? Thanks
 

A:Can't get Win 2K to accept partitions

Have you tried formatting with Partition Magic? I use version 8 to partition all custom systems that I build and I love it, it works grate! I have never had a problem using PM8.

Hello,

I have changed and re-changed setting in internet options. I put the bar at accept all cookies. I have shut down my firewall and this did not help. I am using Zonealarm.
I have seen this addressed on several news groups and no one seems to have an answer. I have searched the knowledge base and tried several suggestions, no help.

Starting out, I E 6 was working okay, and then it quit accepting cookies. I asked for some knowledge from this forum. It was suggested that I use I E version 5.5.

I have Win98, Pentium II, 233 mhz, 196 megs ram, 32 g hd, plenty of room.

I used a program call IEradicator to remove I E 6. (http:\\www.98lite.net)
This did seem to remove I E from my computer. I ran it twice. I scandisk and defraged, ran regclean, scandisk and defrag again. I installed I E version 5.5. I still can not get this computer to accept cookies. I discovered that the internet options drop down was the same as version 6. This options menu still has a privacy tab included. I donít think that this is part of version 5.5.

I still canít accept cookies.

Does anyone know what to work over, to help me correct this main problem?

I know that I can empty all data and reformat. Might be what has to be. Did not want to do this.
 

A:Cookies, can not accept

Dear Fred: Let me tell you of a simple way I have come up with
for managing cookies. It may not work for everyone, but it

In the Internet Options (Security tab), I set both the

Then, in the Internet zone, I disallow cookies that are stored
on the computer, while allowing session cookies. In the
Trusted Sites zone, I allow both. Whenever I run into a site
which needs to store a cookie (like eBay, Amazon, cable TV

the end of the day, I have on the drive those cookies which I
need to keep, and all others are history.
To make this even easier, I use a small application called
Trust Setter, which puts two buttons in the IE toolbar, Add to
Trusted Sites, and Add to Restricted Sites. Get it from

I have a question Can my HP ENVY H8-1418 accept 32 GB or MORE of Ram.  What is the Maximum Amount i can put in it ? the machine came with 8GB with two spaces available. I did upgrade it with 8 GB more.

My daughter has asked me to look at her HP Laptop. She gave me the password but when I try to type it in it does not work. I've made sure that I don't have the CAPS lock on or that I misspelled the password (which I didn't in either case)

What can I do to fix this problem. I've looked at some password reset programs but am confused by them. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

A:Windows 7 Won't accept Password

My daughter has asked me to look at her HP Laptop.Hi JazzMahn -First, double check if your daughter has given you the correct password.Next, can you start in safe mode at all (requires no password usually)Finally, why has she asked you to "look" at the computer (are there problems)Thank You -

I am trying to move my system to an SSD (sandisk plus 240GB) it's a SATA 3 device.  I cloned the drive and can't get it to boot up so I look further and see that when it is installed the SSD is not even visible in the bios.  However if I install the same SSD in another working (non HP) laptop then it can be see it in the bios on that computer.  Is there some restriction on SATA 3 devices on this HP 655 laptop?  It is an Insyde H20 bios.   I have set boot order, legacy mode and other bios settings but the relevant point here is that the drive is not even being seen by the bios in the HP laptop. Thanks

This is crazy but my friend's HP crashed and we tried to do a system recovery since HP has the recovery "disks" already installed to no avail, also won't go into safe mode so I did a clean install. I wiped the entire HD using FDISK Created new partition formatted it Ran XP to try to install it and when I get the license agreement it says to hit F8 to agree to it which I do and it does nothing. I can't pass this agreement screen which is very odd. Any ideas? I even did the same steps to another HD that I had laying around that had 100GB this one has 80G it is 1.5 years old when purchased new to test and same thing. I tried installing WIN98 and it works, Win2K won't allow me to accept either. Any ideas how to get XP back?

A:XP User Agreement Won't Let Me Accept?

Hi xxnonamexx to BC.

Does your friend's keyboard have an F-Lock Button? If it does, try pressing that before doing F8. I know on my system (also an HP) that I have to set that F-Lock when I am reformatting or else it doesn't work.

Good luck

I have a new computer that I need to reformat with the proper operating software (XP Pro, an older version that has never failed me) The version on the machine right now is not running things properly and won't install certain updates (unverified perhaps?)
This new machine is foreign territory to me as it has sata drive and is 64 bit. As far as I know, this is all that sets it apart, for the most part, from the rest of my computers. It's as state of the art as I could put out for
I've never had a problem installing this XP Pro disc on any other of the computers so I don't see it as the problem at this point.
Here's the deal...Computer reboots with disc in, I press any key to boot from the disc, Windows does it's thing, I'm asked what I want to do, I press enter, it continues in a normal fashion up until the license agreement. I can't get past here. I have the choices of f8=accept, esc=do not agree, and next page. My f8 does nothing. If I press esc, I'm exiting the install right away. Scrolling down, to read the agreement, and then pressing f8, doesn't change anything either (as it sometimes does on web pages) Finally, out of frustration, I believe I've covered every key across the board
This machine won't do things the other slower, more out of date ones will. Is this another of those things? Do I see a trip to the builder of this box in my future?
Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to ge... Read more

A:Can't Accept License Agreement With F8 Key

Look at your keyboard and see if there is a button for F Lock on it.On mine it is to the left of the escape key but it may be in a different place on yours if you have it. Press it once when your F8 key isn't operating.By the way, the version of Win XP Pro is different for the 64 Bit processors and the drivers for Sata drives may have to be added manually before the install:http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/default.mspx

Under internet options, privacy the cookies keep changing to Accept All i dont change them and its really worrying . Done a few virus scans with NOD32 but nothing . Also internet explorer keeps moving to the back as if another programme is opening and then closing-might be related . Any clues please help. Thanks.

A:Cookies Keep Changing To 'accept All'

One of your security programs may have the "internet options" locked.Could be a corrupt IE file.Are you "applying" "OKing" your way out of the changes?You could run a scan with an antispyware program. One of the Best is SAS.Download and Install Super Antispyware free. Reboot into Safe mode and Run SAS. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds. http://www.superantispyware.com/How to Start Windows in Safe Mode:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-start-windows-in-safe-mode/

After updating to IE7 (from microsoft) why will the "run once" page,which you get firstly, not accept my settings?
 

A:Why wont IE7 accept my settings?

Perhaps there is some corruption in IE. Go to Start>Run then type cmd, click OK. In the command window type sfc /scannow, a progress bar will appear, wait for it to finish then reboot your computer. This is the standard fix for many IE problems and is worth a try.

Thanks.
