    SOLVED Movie Player for OSX Catalina

    Getting a copy of Disk Utility

    Well, in the process of using the Catalina patcher, I set up drives that are now in APFS, but to reset up Catalina, I need to make a drive that is already in APFS to MacOS Extended. That way I can set up a new drive to accept the patcher and then Catalina.

    Windows 7 using Bootcamp

    Has anyone encountered an issue where Win 7 made a problem so that the Mac won't return to OS X unless the computer is powered down, option key is depressed and OS X drive is reenabled? If so how was it solved short of starting with a fresh OS X build?

    SOLVED New hard drive setup

    Yes it was, sort of. I ended up downloading a copy of Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Mac and reset the drive, allowing me to reset Bootcamp which is why I made inquires in the first place. This Macbook is the first foray into OS X based computers having worked with DOS based systems since 1987. I...

    SOLVED Mac to headphones

    I recently purchased a set of Sony headphones (Model WH-CH700N) that my Macbook Pro (mid 2009) will not see in Bluetooth mode no matter what I do (turn off wireless network ect). Has anyone had this happen to them?
