    Comment on Anybody use a Mac Mini?
    <b>
    Right now, at work, I'm using an early 2011 MacBook Pro. It's had no problems at all. I'll likely get a new one early next year, but I'm in no hurry because I don't want to give up the 17-inch display....

    Overall I haven't really ever had any problems with macs either. Basically just the grpahics card problems I've been talking about. And the 2011 MBP is notorious for them (which is what I have now)....

    This is a puzzling discussion because the things described run counter to my experiences.

    I've been buying Macs since 1984, and have probably owned, maybe, a couple dozen of them. Also during...

    Hello fellow designers.

    I know most/all/a lot of you use USB Keys to transfer work, send to an annoying printer, exchange files with a client. This is somewhat off topic because I know I can just go buy another USB key for a couple bucks but this is going to annoy me if I don't figure it out.

    I received a pair if USB Keys from my dealership after purchasing my 2008 Lancer. On said USB Key was a bunch of useless info on my car and some free space that I can do whatever I want on it.

    I tried getting rid of the useless information but I CANT And it's driving me up the wall!

    I tried formating it but it won't let me... Does anyone know of a "Force Format" Kind-of-thing? I'm on a Mac but if you give me a solution on a PC I shall love you all the same.

    Thanks

    Yeah, I've seen a few thumb drives like that, where the info can't be erased. Never found a solution.

              That is just like iPods and many other storage devices, it's like they have partitioned the drive into two. One that you can access, and other that you cannot.
              I don't know of a solution sorry.

                    "I can type" clearly you can't.

                        2GB? Jeebus!

                        My iPod Touch doesn't even use close to that amount. 616MB for apps, 55GB for music, 225MB for other...

                              and 1 method requires a microwave.
                              Another requires a large, rare earth magnet.
                              The third requires fireworks/bottle rockets.
