What is the hard disk looking icon on the desktop? It appears after I've downloaded an application (like firefox, vlc, etc.) and I can't seem to delete it like on windows (OS X newbie, lol). I tried eject but I've no idea what that does.

OK, that's the disk image. When you download anything, there will be two icons. The first is a .dmg icon, and the other is the one you are describing. Click on that, and you should see FireFox's icon inside, for example. Drag that icon into the APPLICATIONS folder, THEN eject. It should not come back again after that.

Hi all,
My macbook pro 13" cannot detect the internal harddisk, when i boot from the Mac OS installation disk, the Disk Utilities cannot detect the hdd as well.

But when i use the sata to USB converter to connect the hdd to the other laptop which running on windows, i can see the hdd in the disk management.

So i format the hdd using windows and put it back to my macbook, but it still cannot be detected. Anybody knows how to solve this?

Really appreciate for your help.

Thanks.

How do you listen to online radio such as Yes933? The plugin is unavailable for Safari.

Thanks in advance.

actually it'll appear after a while.
If you can't wait, open up terminal and type

killall Finder
and it should appear after that.
