    Open a Finder window and Airdrop is on the left hand side column.

    iDisk is also located in the Finder window

    Navigate to your dock and click the Finder Screen Shot 2011-07-23 at 11.25.06.png icon. This should open a 'blank' finder window. Press CMD Shift and 4, then press space. Click the camera icon in the finder window, a screenshot should appear on your desktop. Upload that here by clicking the small paperclip [​IMG]on the reply page.

    Because your Mac is not compatible with AirDrop ;).

    It's to do with the way AirDrop works, you don't even need a WiFi connection. The computers detect each other and then they either transfer across an existing WiFi network or it creates one between them. It seems different to the Ad Hoc network stuff so it needs a compatible WiFi card.
