    Yup. It's the 360 controller. I plug it in, works fine. I unplug it, front USB ports stop working. I would use PS3 controllers instead, but I must press the center button for the Mac to recognize...

    Thanks for looking that up. According to that, I reset my SMC by powering down, disconnecting the cord for at least 15 seconds, plugging the cord back in, waiting a few seconds and then powering...

    I'm not sure, but looking back on it that is the only probable consistency that I can see. I have never heard of anyone having issues using a wired Xbox controller before. There are even Mac...

    It's usually just the front ports (both are always affected, it's never just one or the other). The mouse and keyboard which are plugged into the back continue to work. I have had them ALL die...

    Why do my USB ports keep dying?

    I have the world's worst computer... a Mac Pro (tongue-in-cheek, not a troll). Quite often for no reason that I can discern, the front USB ports stop working. A reboot usually fixes this. Nothing...

    OK I figured it out. It does indeed go under the shield for the heat sink, but not very far.

    But all seems OK behind the fan, so not sure why neither of my optical drives will no loner work. ...

    My Mac Pro must be the only one with a metal shield blocking fan removal. Check out this picture:

    The screw is removed (point A).

    But the fan...

    I looked at that site and can't seem to find the Mac Pro section.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I found it, but there are no guides for the Mac Pro, it says.

    Removing front fan from Mac Pro

    I have a late 2006-early 2007 Mac Pro. I need to remove the fan in the front so I can gain access where the IDE ribbon cables connect to the motherboard so that I may replace them. I am good at...

    I think I would have posted looong ago if I couldn't have gotten my drive open in all of these years. But the initial post did say that I could not open either of my optical drives, so even if I...

    Thanks for the link, chscag!

    Harry, my Mac Pro has two optical drives. I put in a second one many years ago.

    Turns out part of the cable is frayed. It's pretty tough getting the bay back in there without damaging it. Drives removed and cabled sealed with electrical tape for now until I can figure out how...

    I can remove the optical drive bay, but I cannot get to where the other end of the cable goes. All connections are fine on the drive side. The drive will open if I press the button on the drive...

    The icon at the top of the screen in the menu bar which allows you to open drives via a mouse click says that there are "No drives".

    I suppose it is possible the IDE cable has become loose on...
  15. 2006 Mac Pro won't eject optical drives

    For whatever reason, my computer is refusing to eject either of the optical drives. I have repaired the disk, repaired permissions, run Disk Warrior and all of that fun stuff. I can still control...

    Join CD Tracks only works while importing from disc and creates a single file. I don't see any "Join Tracks" otherwise in iTunes.
  17. Sequential playback during shuffle - Is it possible?

    iPod Touch 3rd generation

    Quick example:

    We Will Rock You by Queen should always be followed by We Are the Champions. But on shuffle mode they are not treated as being of the same group even...

    It is the Cinema Display 20". It uses a 65W box. And it was hooked up to a surge protector, though my faith in such devices becomes more skeptical at times like these.

    This is the culprit:

    Thanks, but neither of those sites have it. eBay has it for $95. That's a lot of $$$ for a simple power brick in a fancy white case. From what I've read, this is a fairly common problem. BTW I am...

    Unfortunately that did not work.

    EDIT: It turns out it was the white power supply box that powers the monitor. Somehow it was able to give it enough power to blink, but not do much else. I sure...

    We had a power outage here today and the G5 with attached Apple monitor does not seem to be behaving properly. The monitor never comes on, but the light on the monitor blinks three times (two quick...

    I got it working. The optical drive was indeed bad (in a sense). I still don't understand why it wouldn't recognize perfectly bootable external USB or Firewire hard drives, though.

    1. I use a Mac keyboard. It says both ALT and OPTION on the same key. Not sure why it has two labels.

    2. It reads CDs great, but DVDs not so well.

    3. It is a 10.4.0 install disc on DVD. ...
  24. Installing 10.4 on an eMac

    I have an eMac that for whatever reason doesn't like the install DVD. It usually just spits it back out, but...

    Wow, I was just about to post this same question. Glad to hear my OS won't suck itself into some sort of black hole. :)
