    Apple Launches 27" iMac 3TB Hard Drive Replacement Program
    Friday June 19, 2015

    Apple has determined that a small number of 3TB hard drives
    used in late 2012 27-inch iMacs sold between December 2012
    and September 2013 may fail under certain conditions. The 
    company has initiated a replacement program to replace 
    affected hard drives free of charge through Apple or an 
    Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP).

    Apple is contacting affected iMac owners that provided a 
    valid email address during product registration to inform 
    them about the new replacement program. iMac owners can 
    check if they are affected by entering the computer's serial
    number on Apple's support website, and visit the Genius Bar,
    locate an AASP or contact Apple Technical Support to 
    initiate the replacement process.

    Apple advises that customers who paid to have their hard 
    drive repaired contact the company for a refund. The 
    replacement program covers affected iMac models until 
    December 19, 2015, or three years from the affected iMac's 
    original date of sale, depending on whichever is longer. 
    Read about the iMac replacement program on Apple's support 
    website for further details.

Old Mac Programming from "Mac Programming for Dummies"

"Pagefile.sys" on Both Hard Drives?
Hello- I have two hard drives, only one operating system. Hard Drive #1 has the Windows XP operating system on it. Hard Drive #2 has some applications on it. I notice that both drives have a large section (959MB) devoted to something called pagefile.sys Do I need this on Hard Drive #2 or is only something I need only on Hard Drive #1 where the operating system lives?

How do I "Replace " primary hard Drive ?
I would like to do the following : Copy 100% of the contents of my current 10 gig HD onto a 160 Gig HD . Take that first HD and put in on shelf as a sort of snapshot in time that I can go back to if needed and use the new drive as my one and only drive . I tried simply coping one drive to the other but it didn't work, not all data contained on HD 1 is able t be copied. There must be some easy way to do this but I'm not getting it.

How to "reformat" Mac Hard Drive
I'm probably an "intermediate" user of Mac computers. I know enough to get myself into some serious trouble!!! I had an iMac that crashed. I finally got around to taking it apart and removing the hard drive. I'm sitting here with the hard drive in a docking station and I've managed to copy all the documents and pix that were on the hard drive. Now what I want to do is "reformat" the drive - or try to. In other words, I want to "erase" the hard drive and put the Mac OS back on it - if possible - so that I can use the iMac again. But OS sof...

Panasonic CF-27 "Forgets About" the Hard Drive?!
Hello all, I'm having a strange problem with a CF-27 I just picked up. I bought it as a "bare bones" unit, none of the removable components were included. I bought another 27 as the donor for all the removable parts, figuring I'd load up the more advanced model and re-sell the lesser one that provided the parts. Here's the problem: The POST recognizes the hard drive. I boot up from a Win98 startup disk, and go into FDISK to partition it. FDISK sees the drive and partitions it. After I reboot, as FDISK requires, it seems to "forget" the drive it just parti...

Is Mac booting from ext hard drive really "necessary"?
The more I play with Windows XP Pro and Windows Vista, the more I am happy with my Macs. I have both XP and Vista installed via Parallels, on my 15" MacBook. Are there any _major_ drawbacks in not being able to boot from an external hard drive? Windows users seem to think that there are no good reasons to boot from an external hard drive. Come right down to it, perhaps they are right, as far as MAJOR reasons are concerned. Still, little convenience factors like ext' drive booting make me appreciate my Macs. At times, when I am on the road and have a tight schedule wit...

Replacing hard drive and getting "NTLDR missing" message
The hard drive in my Dell Optiplex died, and I am trying to replace it with an existing hard drive from an older HP computer. The Dell came with Win 2000 preinstalled. The HP hard drive has Win XP installed. When I placed the Win XP hard drive in the Dell, I got a "NTLDR missing" message at boot up. I've searced Google's message boards and seen that this is not a rare problem, but so far I've not found a solution that works. I've tried doing the following (from Microsoft's Web site): 1. Restart the computer by using a Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me st...

Upgrading capacity of LaCie "Mac Mini" hard drive?
LaCie Mini Hard Drive was designed with the same footprint as the Mac Mini. It uses a 3.5" IDE mechanism that had, at the time, 80 GB capacity. If I want to replace the 80 GB mechanism with one of 200-500 GB size, how can I tell if the chip set used in the drive's enclosure will be happy with such a large mechanism? (Some chip sets were limited to 128(?) GB maximum, IIRC.) Is there a way to ping the chip set to identify it's capabilities? Or is this model of enclosure listed somewhere as to what chip set it used? LaCie tech support rep said that they do not keep records o...

Good news: The iMac's RAM is "user-replaceable."
From iFixIt In case you haven't heard, the new iMac is really thin…kinda. At its thinnest point (around the edge), it is 5 mm thick. At its thickest, though, it is over 4 cm thick, more than 8 times the thickness of the edge. Unlike in the previous iMac, this display is held in place with more than magnets. To our dismay, we're forced to break out our heat gun and guitar picks to get past the adhesive holding the display down. Repair faux pas alert! To save space and eliminate the gap between the glass and the pixels, Apple opted to fuse the front glass and th...

how hard to replace titanium internal hard drive? How to clone old hard drive onto it?
Hi all - I have a 2001 titanium laptop with a 20 Gig hard drive. The thing is getting too full and I'm toying with the idea of getting a bigger one and replacing it. Questions: 1) how hard is it to do myself? Is it easy to ruin/break something or is it pretty simple to do it right? 2) are there instructions somewhere on-line? 3) are there different brands of drives I can buy? If so, any suggestions for good ones or ones to avoid? and 4) I don't want to re-install the OS, software, preferences, GUI behavior, etc. Is it possible to clone my internal drive onto the new one s...

This same disk was happily running Ubuntu 0810 just before I turned it off to install 1004, and had been for about six months.
