I can't find my iDisk anymore and where is AirDrop???
Open a Finder window and Airdrop is on the left hand side column.
iDisk is also located in the Finder window
Thanks. Found iDisk.. I was looking for the old icon.
Still don't see AirDrop.
Can you post a screen shot of your finder window?
Not sure how???
command+shift+4+spacebar then click your finder window. Then your picture will be on the desktop
What sort of computer do you have?
AirDrop is only compatible with the following machines:
MacBookPro (Late 2008 or newer)
MacBook Air (Late 2010 or newer)

From Apple Knowledge Base Article
Navigate to your dock and click the Finder
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 on the reply page.
>>What sort of computer do you have?<<
That may be it. I have a Mac Book Pro that I bought in Nov 2006... I want to get a new one, but this one is so darn good... why???
Because your Mac is not compatible with AirDrop .
>>Because your Mac is not compatible with AirDrop<<
But NOW I have a reason to get a new one <g>.
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.
