I'm new to Mac and thought it would be like my PC...not So...I made some mistakes but have no idea how to correct them. I had planned on transferring my video tape to an external hard drive on the mac but the machine locked up. I got a little flashing folder and I did everything that I could according to the very small info that came with the computer. Nothing worked. Trying to reinstall the software didn't do any good, trying to reinstall os 9 didn't do anygood either. Finally I installed osX but now have TWO operating systems on my computer with the added problem of not being able to use Imovie at all (the software that came with it wouldn't reinstall) and I cannot use idvd either. My question is this....how does one start over? In a pc I can format my hard drive and reinstall windows...is this an option on a mac? Or should I delete os 9 and hope for the best? hope that I can install the software that came with it? And if I should uninstall, how does one go about that? And how does one get the computer to operate if it won't even allow the reset button? I'm going to stop there with the questions. I think I will take this Mac thing one step at a time. Thank you!
