i think that cannot be changed. or at least, no one has found the answer yet.

however, if you don't like the icon, you can consider reflt. different icons and you will be even able to do triple boot
hmm, I saw my fren imac, he manage to change the Leopard HD, but when i asked him why he didnt change xp Hd, he said he dunno how.

Hello,

have been having some issues upgrading flash plugin for firefox on my wife's macbook. When installing it'll be stuck on Searching for Macintosh HDD while it keeps searching, nothing seems to be happening. Did everything as said on flash website including fixing the permissions but still stuck on searching for macintosh hdd.

Another problem is the preview on Macbook. Can't seem to use it. Click on it nothing happens. Can't seem to preview anything, including jpeg files.

Can someone recommend a 3.5 external hdd for my wife's macbook. Thinking of getting at least 250gb. But i'm not sure which are compatible.

Please help, lots of thanks to everyone in advance.

Hi guys...

Ques: Synchonizing Outlook Folder to MacBook.

I've managed to set up an Account in my MacBook using the iMail. Can I actually Synch all the existing mail in my Outlook to my iMail? Many thanks all.

Outlook would be on a PC? You'll need to check around the net for a tool to do just that. There are a couple, but I believe mostly commercial. There's some good freeware, but I think some other users are better suited to advise on this - I use Gmail so it doesn't bother me, I can always reset the sync dates if I desire, or switch to IMAP.

I've just reinstalled the flash plugin on my MBP.. No issues. Download it from adobe's web site (While you're at it, download the uninstaller too. The new flash plugin fixes a security bug!)

Uninstall the Flash plugin, reboot... Repair permissions, reinstall the flash plugin. It should install for all your browsers.

Hmm.. I can't remember, but doesn't this extract by default with the usual extractor helper app? I know I have betterZip installed, but I don't recall using BetterZip to extract RAR, .tar.gz, or zip...

In any case, if you want to be absolutely sure, The Unarchiver.

What do you mean by nothing happens? When you click on its Dock Icon, does it bounce and launch? Would dragging a .jpg file into its Dock Icon launch it? How about when you simply double-click on a .jpg?

If none of the above happens, it sounds like your Preview.app is corrupted. And that can happen if your harddisk developed bad clusters, or become coruppted over-time. I suggest you run Disk Utility now to verify it, and Repair it if necessary. But of course, that won't rejuvenate your damaged Preview.app.

But frankly, judging from the issue you have with Flash installer, your OS might also be screwed as the Installer may be going loops to find a file.

I'd say fix your harddisk and re-install OS X.

This sounds kind of weird. But when my wife bought the MB from the shop at 5th floor of funan, it didn't come with the OS X disk. I didn't realised that till a few months later, which i guess might be too late right ?

Anyway, when i click on it, it does bounce but it does not launch. Double-click a jpg file, nothing happens too.

Sorry for my bluntness. I saw the disk in a small box of the big box. Whatever it is .. i found it.

Try repairing it first mah. Cannot repair then you go buy the huge one you wanted, ok?

You ever use Onyx to maintain your OS X anot?

http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/11582

Go to the Automation tab and tick those options as pictured then click Execute.

Make sure you let Onyx verify your Harddisk when it launches.

Good luck.
