Pc And Mac Can't Find Each Other


Installed windows 7 - now pc and mac can't find each other and mac can't find printer. Had 2 computers with vista and one with xp and they all worked and played well. Got rid of one vista machine and added a mac and things were still good. Upgraded xp machine to windows 7 and lost network, printer sharing, access to owa.

Can't See Mac Files

I have a new sony vaio laptop that came loaded with windows 7. In the past i was able to move data from my apple mac pro via thumb-drives, external hard-drives and such without a problem. With win7 i can not see the drives which have been formatted on my mac. They show up as drives in the drive manager, but i can not assign a drive letter to them. The only thing i am allowed to do is delete the volume, which i do not want to do. Is there a solution for this shortcoming? I don't have problems seeing my windows files on mac.

Microsoft Update Thinks My Pc Is A Mac

I am running xp pro sp3 (32 bit) and ie 6 sp3. I get updates through automatic updates which is set to download but allow me to manually apply the updates. If i attempt to check for updates via the web site link on the automatic updates applet screen then i get this message:

"Thank you for your interest in obtaining updates from our site. This website is designed to work with microsoft operating systems only. To find updates for microsoft products that are designed for macintosh operating systems, please visit http://www.microsoft.com/mac/. "

Obviously my user agent is messed up. This behavior started after i cleaned my system using the ms malicious software removal tool downloaded from microsoft.com in response to a virus infection. As far as i can tell my system has been virus free since being cleaned but the user agent is of course no longer what the ms update site wants to see.

Running http://www.Enhanceie.com/ua.aspx from ie 6 yeilds:

Your user-agent string

Mozilla/4. 0 (compatible; msie 999. 1; unknown)

I run symantec endpoint protection version 11. 0. 2020. 56 which i update automatically and regularly using live update. I am not using any other third party firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware or other anti-malware s/w. I do not subscribe to msn.

I have hesitated to update to ie 7 because i suspect that installing that on top of an installation where the user-agent registry or other settings are already bad would not necessarily be the wisest course. Can you assist me?

Win 7 Home Upgrade On Mac

I went through the procedure to partition my hard drive for bootcamp, then inadvertently loaded the windows 7 upgrade disc instead of first installing my full version of xp. I try to close out of it, but all it does is restart to the install disc each time. I get prompted for drivers that i don't have (though if i did, it will allow me to upload them from a thumb drive. ). Does anyone know 1) how i can eject the windows 7 disc so i can first install xp or 2) where i can download the correct drivers so i can complete the install.

Mac Address Changing Problem

I have windows 7 professional installed on my laptop. And i need to spoof my wireless card mac address, and i do it the same way as in windows xp, but the problem is, the original mac address is still intact, so i cant get past my mac address filter (my isp has one). I can only do it in xp at this moment, and i would really like to surf also in my win 7. Hope u can give me a clue how to do it. I already did the changing in the registry, or used programs like smac, tmac, and so on.

Add Local Win 7 Printer To Mac

Before i upgraded to windows 7 i was able to go to the mac system preferences / print and fax and go to the add printer dialog and select the windows tab. Under that tab in the three pane window it would show workgroup/home-pc/printer where home-pc is my machine and printer was the name i chose for the canon mp780 that i shared via windows 7.

Once i upgraded to windows 7. I tried doing the same thing and nothing shows up on the windows tab in add printer dialog. I now have no idea how to add a local printer on my windows 7 box that i am sharing!?

Wireless Repeater Mac Address Error

I use a wireless repeater to boost my wireless internet connection to reach to my part of the house (i don't want to run cables through the house). In xp, it would identify that i have two connections (or something like that), and i had the option to choose which one that i wanted, and set it so that i always used the wireless repeater address. I can't get 7 to identify anything but the initial wireless address. My brother is a tekkie, and he set the whole thing up, but he's not available to help me anymore.

I obviously don't know what the heck i'm talking about. I can't even articulate the question properly. Any ideas out there in internet land?

Mac Pro With Bootcamp - Reinstall Win 7 And Office 2010

Macpro with bootcamp - need to re-partition hd and re-install win 7 and office 2010 (full versions, not upgrades). I just called support and the 90 days of support are up on the windows 7 since i purchased it in oct or nov 2009. When i re-partition i will lose both msft programs. I don't think there will be any problem with office 2010 which was purchased this week but what about win 7? Will the product key work if it is re-installed on the same computer or do i have to shell out more money to gates for his pirated software from apple?

Support wouldn't answer that question as they said the product key was out of date. Wow. 90 days is awfully short.

Win 7 Shows Removable Usb Sticks Are For Apple Mac

I recently got a usb mobile broadband dongle which is meant to install its own software when you plug it in. When i put it in any of my other machines, it started the windows installation, but when i put it in this one it came up as if it were an apple drive.

There was no sign of the windows files. Today i have been trying to install filemaker from a cd-rom. The same has happened, the disk is seen as an apple disk on this machine. I really can't figure out why. Any suggestions?

File Transfer From Mac In Target Disk Mode To Win 7 Via Firewire

i'm trying to transfer my music collection from a mac running osx onto my windows 7 laptop pc.

Have just forked out for a firewire cable and am trying to get that working.

Have switched the mac into "target disk mode" which makes it behave just like an external hard drive and plugged it into my laptop via firewire.

Windows 7 recognizes an "sbp2 compliant ieee 1394 device" has been plugged in.

However - i cannot browse the mac's files. Under devices and printers the h: drive appears but it is not browsable.

Have tried all three ieee 1394 drivers, and interestingly "1394 ohci compliant host controller (legacy)" driver is the only one where a "browse" tab appears in the devices and printers bit. However when i open the drop down, a h: appears, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Any ideas?

Cannot Find An Icon

I deleted the icon for ie8 on the start menu and the desktop, not knowing it would cause me not to be able to open it. It seems i've tried everything - i've searched the start menu and i've turned ie8 on and on in the 'turn windows features on or off' section of the control panel. I've also recently checked the program files for it, but the closest thing i can find is a file named iexplorer.exe. Mui , and whenever i try to open it, a window comes up saying it cannot be found.
How can i get ie8 back?

Cannot Find Ms Office Toolbar

I have two questions that i amlooking for help with:

1. I used a cd-rw disk to transfer files to my new toshiba a500 laptop running windows 7. After transfer i am trying to delete files from the rw disk so that i can reuse it, but it won't let me delete files from it. Pos-up say i need administrator approval and everyone else. I am the only user and logger in as administrator - don't know who everyone else might be, k but i'd like to salvage my rw disks for future use? 

2. I also am running office 2003 on the new pc, but cannot find of even transfer the "office shortcut bar" or as some call it the "office toolbar" onto the new laptop.

Or am i missing something?

Laptop Cannot Find Printer On Desktop

I can't get my printer set up on my network. Laptop is running windows vista, desktop is running windows 7. Everything was fine until my desktop motherboard failed. I had to get a new mb and installed windows 7. Now laptop can't see printer. My laptop running windows vista can't see the printer associated with my desktop running windows 7.

Are they not compatible with each other? It keeps asking for some sort of password. I have none that i remember. The printer worked fine before the installation of a new motherboard and windows 7. Now i can only print from my desktop.

Media Player Cannot Find Music

My problem is similar to the problem that amanda wise was experiencing except that i am running windows 7. After uninstalling and reinstalling windows 7 for a different problem, i lost my library in wmp. The files were backed up to an external hard drive. Now i cannot get wmp to go and get the files from the external drive. I installed musicmatch from an old disk and it had no problem finding all of my music. I can rip music from a cd with wmp but, a lot of my files were from vinyl and and it is time consuming to replace all of them. I prefer to use wmp because musicmatch will no longer support anything on the web.

Xp Mode Cannot Find Lpt1 Ports

I have just purchased a new pc which came with windows 7 pro installed. This machine had no lpt ports fitted as supplied. I use a very old dos based accounts programme which will only print to lpt1. I understand that i cant run dos programmes in win 7 so i have set up a windows virtual pc to run in xp mode and my old dos software runs just fine.

I have fitted a lpt pci card and win 7 has detected this but has called it lpt3 and i have successfully installed an equaly old epson printer to it. My problem is that i cannot get this port to install on the virtual xp mode system and even if i manage that can i rename it to lpt1 and install a printer to it. Any help would be much appreciated even if its just to tell me that what i am trying to do is not possible.
