    Any issues known with MBPro (2021 - M1) and A1470 Time Capsule?

    I hope that this problem has now gone away. My last post had assumed that we'd reach the trouble free state by powering off and re-booting. Not so lucky. Using AppleCare on Wednesday, I spoke with a very helpful woman. She recommended a soft re-boot of my 2016 Time Capsule and we...

    Any issues known with MBPro (2021 - M1) and A1470 Time Capsule?

    Developments: I took my M1 MBPro off my somewhat ageing Time Capsule. Thus no Time Machine backups. Next, I powered off the TC for a few minutes. I then logged the MBPro on to the TC. It began making TC/Time machine backups as it ought. Checked my i-mac and the MB Air. Both backing up as...

    Any issues known with MBPro (2021 - M1) and A1470 Time Capsule?

    Cory, Thank you for your response. I think a separate "Time Capsule" type of device for the 2021 M1 MBPro will be the best answer. So much has moved on since I bought my other devices. If I delete the Time Capsule from the 2021 MBP that won't affect its connection with the older devices, will...

    Any issues known with MBPro (2021 - M1) and A1470 Time Capsule?

    I have been using Time Capsule (v7.9.1) & Time Machine (now v1.3) for some years with IMac (2011), a previous 2014 MBPro, & a MBk Air. Lately the new M1 chip 2021 MBPro has been having difficulty with putting backups on the Time Capsule. The other devices continue with regular backups. Has...

    No microphone in Sound

    Try Preferences (on top menu bar Zoom). Set background, l/speaker, mic & more. Lots of settings worth exploring.

    SD card 'lost' in iMac CD drive slot

    Cory, I plan to stop 'fishing' for the SD card. The i-Mac works well, I have an external drive, there's an extended memory AND I have a new MBP M1. Thanks

    SD card 'lost' in iMac CD drive slot

    For Cory. Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried the various simple actions to free the SD card, including shaking, tilting and the cardboard "L". Again, no success. Don't think I'll be trying to remove the screen face (unless I can find a local friendly Mac genie). Anyone in Dorset/Wilts...

    SD card 'lost' in iMac CD drive slot

    My 2011 21.5inch iMac [High Sierra 10.13.6] has two slots on the right hand edge of the display case. A CD drive is above the SD card one. I have put a SD card into the CD slot & cannot retrieve it. This means that I cannot put a disk in. All the other workings of the iMac are unaffected. I...

    SOLVED iCloud for Mac is stuck on "waiting to upload"

    This fault was put right after a few minutes consultation on line with Mac Support. Essentially, I was advised to log off all my iCloud accounts on my various devices, sequentially. It was done one device at at time. I started with the oldest, the iMac (2011). The system offers the...

    SOLVED iCloud for Mac is stuck on "waiting to upload"

    I use a 2021 MBPro (M1) on Big Sur 11.2.3, an elderly 2011 i-Mac on High Sierra 10.13.6, an i-phone XR, iOS 14.4.2 and an i-pad mini4, also iOS 14.4.2. While 'NOTES' and some applications synchronise properly on up to three of the devices, neither Pages, Numbers of Contacts do what is expected...

    Zoom UK app

    Don't make ZOOM too complicated . Here's an extract from a guide I have put together: How to get the best out of ZOOM. First, you will receive from the host an e-mail containing a link (in blue type usually). Then, set your PC/Mac/Tablet/smart phone level on a firm support with the camera...

    SOLVED Strange effects, HP printers

    In the last few days I kept getting a warning on my MBP 2016 ( Catalina v 10.15.7 ) that the HP printer was about to damage my computer if I continued with printing a job. Occurred with both my printers ( HPDeskJet D2560 & HP Photosmart C4280). Didn't happen with my 2011 i-Mac (High Sierra...

    Identifying your desktop picture

    May I suggest using the 'SEARCH' feature in the top bar of your 'pictures' window? Whatever your desktop shows at the moment, it must have something recognisable. Go to Photos and try 'flower', 'bus', 'aeroplane', 'clock', for example, or whatever is the main feature of the picture. I have...
