    OSX Mavericks

    Hello, just looked at my ‘Contacts ‘ to find it shows no cards.
    The left hand column shows
    All contacts

    Smart Groups
    Last Import

    but no contacts

    In mail I have all my email addresses as normal.

    Odd but on my iPad all of my contacts are being displayed.

    How can i get these onto my iMac?

    no cars, only boats
    Many possible causes;

    - are you linked to the same accounts

    - are the addresses on local on the iPad

    - if you are linked to the right account, is the password entered correctly

    - some old versions of OSX/iOS will not work anymore, is this your case

    - is there a small text at the top of the window saying updating (in this case wait)

    - is the network working

    - and others...

    I would none the less recommend you ensure you have a backup of your address book.

    hope these pointers provide some help
