How do I import my contacts from my iMac account? I can't seem to figure out a way, besides manually typing them back in, to import my contacts. I've cloned my hard drive using CCC and did a erase and install for Leopard so I have a 'blank' address book.

Do you mean form your .mac account?

Because you can simply import and export in your file menu in the address book

Yes, sorry from my .mac account. I have my contacts there but when I go to address book/import it doesn't give me a .mac option? But my contacts are definitely on my .mac account.

Have you gone to your .mac section in your system preference folder? If not, just click on the Sync tab and check the contacts option and then click "Sync Now."

Yes, thanks, I did that a couple of times. Screen pops up just like yours. I check contacts hit 'sync now' but when I go to my address book nothing is there?

What about going to www.mac.com and trying to sync it from there?

Do you think it may have to to with registering my computer. I had to re-register when I did the E and I but when I go to .mac under system preferences it lists my computer?

Jeffery,

Thanks again for staying with me on this! Yes, tried that. All my contacts are listed in my .mac address book just can't find any way to get them back to the computer.
QUOTE Thanks
