Hello gurus,

this might be a bit off, but I would like to know this:

How to retain the chinese naming files i have on Mac OS X when i transfer them to Windows XP?

I have some mp3 files which looks great on Mac OS X, but when transfered to WinXP, they appear to have squares in place of the chinese characters.

Any ideas?

PS: Work issued win laptop, don't have much a choice here...

Nope, I'm using leopard 10.5 and just printed somethings off the Mp145. It works. I recalled I downloaded the drivers from canon's website. Did not use the CD-ROM at all. :)

Hope this helps!

Tell your "friend" to drag and drop the following line of text to her Bookmark Bar.

javascript:self.moveTo(0,0);self.resizeTo(screen.availWidth,screen.availHeight);

Name it Max (or whatever.)


---

In case you don't know how to drag & drop text in OS X.... move your mouse pointer to the line of text and triple-click to highlight the entire line... then, resting the mouse cursor on the highlighted text, press and hold the left mouse button for one second, and then start dragging....

I bought a 2nd hand santa rosa macbook black (late 2007). The guy say he misplace the restore/install DVD and he burn a leopard install disc for me. Right now I try to reinstall leopard but it promot "Mac OS x cannot be installed on this computer" after I choose my language. I already try to erase the harddisk and name it Macintosh HD under Guid. What is the problem? I scare if I buy original leopard also got this problem. Is it possible to ask apple for another restore/install disc for my macbook black?
