Apple Mac Os X V.10.4 Tiger -





Jul 23, 2008 by Javierr88 | Posted in Software

Is it easier to Install Tiger v 10.4.8 on a PC, through wiping out the entire harddrive installing it?

Because i already have vista and i want to dual boot with tiger. but the issue is tiger cannot read my hard drive. I have a patched version of tiger 10.4.8 for amd. i cannot get it to read my hard drive


Apple doesn't make any AMD hardware that I know of. If it's not a Mac be aware Apple doesn't support that. The easiest would be to buy a Mac from Apple and dual boot it with Boot Camp. I don't know how to run OS X on non Apple hardware, which you would be doing if you thought Apple's hardware was too expensive, or really liked your AMD build, or wanted the challenge.

Question about Mac OS X v. 10.4.11?

I want to download a quicktime player for my Mac. (one with which I can watch Window's files such as Itunes previews.) Which quicktime player should I download? It needs to be free. Any information will be appreciated! enen: The downloading worked fine until: "Select Destination." It said that I was unable to download it because "this software requires Mac OS X version 10.5." Mina Mimi: I didn't understand which one to download. Please help!!!!


Let's start with the problem you want to solve. You say you want to download a QuickTime player. Mac OS X comes with QuickTime. Unless you have turned off Software Updates checking, you will have gotten a chance to update it to the latest, version 7.4.5 Click on the Apple logo and choose "About This Mac". In the small window, click on "More Info..." That will open System Profiler. In the left column, go down to "Software". Click the arrow to point down. Scroll down to QuickTime. What is the version? There should be a blue Q in the Dock at the bottom of your screen to open the QuickTime Player. If not, go to the top menu bar while in the Finder mode, click on "Go", select "Applications". In the Finder window that opens, choose QuickTime Player. If somehow you have deleted QuickTime Player, you can go to that link you tried before and choose "QuickTime 7.4.5 for Tiger". If your real problem is that you have QuickTime but it doesn't play a particular video file, you may need to download codecs (short for compress-decompress) for DivX and Xvid, links below. Install the DivX (click on the "Mac" link for a shortcut to the download) and Xvid codecs, the two most often used by Microsoft. The DivX download will be an installer program that automatically puts the DivX codec component in the correct location (Library > QuickTime). The Xvid download will be a compressed file that will decompress automatically when they click on it to make a folder called "XVID Delegate MacOS X" that has a file inside called "XVIDDelegate.component" and a readme file. Move "XVIDDelegate.component" to Library > QuickTime. A restart might be needed after that. [Apple does not include codecs for some Microsoft video formats. This is very bad press for QuickTime and makes people think VLC Player is much better. Once you have

The best Quicktime player is Quicktime Player 7, which is made by Apple. (Quicktime was originally mac-only.) The normal version is free. However, since you have a mac, it should be in you Applications folder. The icon looks like a shiny, blue 'Q.'

Try VLC. It plays a lot of file formats.

Switching to the Mac, The Missing Manual

Creator: David Pogue, Adam Goldstein | Computers - 2005

Demonstrates how to become adjusted to the Macintosh operating system and how to transfer data from a Windows system to a Macintosh, discussing topics such as moving files and Macintosh equivalents to Windows-only programs.

Publisher: O'Reilly Media, Inc.

About this book
It's little wonder that longtime Windows users are migrating in droves to the new Mac. They're fed up with the virus-prone Windows way of life, and they're lured by Apple's well-deserved reputation for producing great all-around computers that are reliable, user-friendly, well designed, and now--with the $500 Mac mini--extremely affordable, too. Whether you're drawn to the Mac's stability, its stunning digital media suite, or the fact that a whole computer can look and feel as slick as your iPod, you can quickly and easily become a Mac convert. But consider yourself warned: a Mac isn't just a Windows machine in a prettier box; it's a whole different animal and a whole new computing experience. If you're contemplating--or have already made--the switch from a Windows PC to a Mac, you need Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition. This incomparable guide delivers what Apple doesn't: everything you need to know to successfully and painlessly move to a Mac. The latest reprint of this book has been updated to reflect the new generation of Mac models that run on Intel chips. There's even a new appendix that guides you through the installation of Windows XP on your Macintosh (using adapter software like Boot Camp or Parallels), so that you have the best of all worlds: a single, beautiful machine that can run 100 percent of the world's desktop software. Missing Manual series creator and bestselling author David Pogue teams up with 17-year-old whiz kid and founder of GoldfishSoft (www.goldfishsoft.com) Adam Goldstein to cover every aspect of switching to a Mac--things like transferring email, files, and addresses from a PC to a Mac; getting acquainted with the Mac's interface; adapting to Mac versions of familiar programs (including Microsoft Office); setting up a network to share files with PCs and Macs; and using the printers, scanners, and other peripherals you already own. Covering the latest in Mac OS X v.10.4 "Tiger," Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition explains the hundreds of innovative new features to the Mac OS and how you can understand and make the very most of each. Whether you're a novice or a power user, Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition, teaches you how to smoothly and seamlessly replace (or supplement) your Windows machine--in a refreshingly funny and down-to-earth style--with a mighty Mac.

    Update-Mixed Blessings (if you currenty use Adobe PS/CS3)

    A happy ending to a rocky start - At long last and sooner then I had ever expected, on 2-11-2008, Apple released the 10.5.2 update for Leopard. I eagerly downloaded and installed it and was delighted to find that the CS3 issues are resolved and in fact, it seems CS3 PS and Bridge as well as other apps I am using on Leopard seem to load much faster. Some of the other quirks other users have reported like the Mac Mail app hanging or not shutting down (and that I also experienced), now appear to be fixed as well. Finally the stability that I always had in Tiger now seems consistent as well in Leopard. At this time, I'm definitely going to keep my Leopard software rather then return it.10.5.2 Info and installation details of the update are here at this Apple link:[...]-------------------------------------------------------------------------We've purchased our 3 Macs (Mac Pro, Mac Mini and MacBook) from Amazon and all had Tiger OS X installed... 3/5 A.

    Whiz-Bang? Kind of. Refined? Definitely.

    Each new major release of an operating system (OS) has to make a splash. We all expect to be wowed. We expect and demand that we are shown new whiz-bang features and enhancements. For example, Microsoft's Vista has lots of whiz-bang features when compared to the steady and stalwart Windows XP. But since Vista's debut, the afterglow has faded. ANd now, the 'whiz' is the sound of people flocking back to XP and the 'bang' is the sound of people's heads hitting their keyboards from the frustration of wrestling with their computer's operating system.Enter Mac OS 10.X:10.1 - not a great debut. 10.2 was admittedly undercooked. 10.3 was getting there. And 10.4 finally delivered on the promise of the Mac OS in the modern age.So with OS 10.5 - where's the whiz-bang?
