My favourite is when people use iPhoto to send me images they think will be suitable for posters ("but it's the high resolution file my photographer sent me"). They are baffled when I inform them that iPhoto has reduced their lovely big promo image down to something that would be smaller than a post card, closer to a postage stamp, if printed. There are better things to do that.
Off to the airport!
I want to copy (burn) a CD on my iMac (27-inch) running Yosemite. It's been two or three OSs back since I've done that and now I don't know how, though I used to do it all the time.
I have an external CD player. I have an audio CD of my own. I want to make a copy of it.
In years past I used to have both an internal CD drive (in my MacBook Pro) and some commercial software I bought, and making CD copies was not difficult to do. Now with only one drive, starting from Disk Utility I keep winding up with problems.
If I have the CD to be copied in the drive (it's already been downloaded to iTunes), I make a burn folder according to instructions, the contents of that folder are just links. So when I eject the CD to insert a blank, the contents disappear or point to nothing.
Seems to me I recall the process is to make a full image of the disk to be copied in an image on my hard drive, and then to use Disk Utility to copy that to a blank. But I can't figure out how. Help! Thanks.
It's tough enough to face the process of aging and passing away "naturally". When a thriving, productive member of society is suddenly taken away, the pain is felt more deeply.
