Q: capture image on macbook from lexmark

Trying to send an important newspaper article via email from my Lexmark All In one printer through my Macbook with Safari OSX. I haven't done it in years and have forgot how to do it. Would appreciate any advice. Please keep it simple as I am not an expert. Instructions in the Lexmark booklet say to go to "Finder" to find Lexmark printer but it is not in my Finder app and I don't know how to get it there. Thanks, Steve

I installed Windows on my friends MacBook Air using Bootcamp a few months ago. At that time I made a Windows Image to an external hard drive, not really sure if it was even feasible to restore it. Has anyone tried doing a restore in a situation like this, or know if it is possible?

I purchased a pinnacle studio 500 PCI card, but what I need to do at the moment is capture still images from the video source. (in this case a microscope)

The pinnacle software bundled seems only for editing and capturing video.

Does anyone know of any good free software that can capture still images from the pinnacle capture card? Any help is much appreciated.

Okay, I am sure that what I wish to do is possible. I just don't have the faintest clue as to how to go about it. I watch DVD's on my PC. (a Dell, with window XP home edition and the Inter-Actual Dvd player). What I would love to be able to do is to pause the DVD playback and capture the screen image as a graphic file. So I can make them my background or things like that.

A friend who knows PCs told me that it is just NOT possible on my machine because Microsoft has designed the operating system not to allow this. However, I found a company that offers a program that is supposed to be able to do what I want. (Herculesoft, the DVDgo Pro). But before I drop $50 on this...

Can I do what I want on my PC? and what do I need to do to be able to do so?

thanks for any advise. I'm about ready to pull my hair out over this.

Hello Melisenda,The following are about Windows Media Player, but they might help. They offer several possible solutions:'m not sure if the InterActual DVD Player has similar controls.

Not too sure if I have posted this in the right section, but,

I want to capture still DV images from my camera (not movies) but software that came with the camera no longer works (for some reason). I have a firewire connection with the camcorder.

Can anyone point me in the right direction regards any free software which would allow mw to capture still images from my camcorders memory. I have had a quick search around the interweb but all these DV capture programs only save movies.

What would be my best option.

Do you mean stills from tape? or stills from a memory card?

BTW, if you go to the manufacturers site you should be able to download any software that came with the cam.

Hi Folks,

I am looking for a software that will produce automatic image captures from DVD footage, something like a chapter thumbnail...

I do VHS to DVD transfers in house and I want to make DVD covers from my transfered footage's still images, I have already programmed the template I wanted to use using this program called "fotofusion" and now I need to be able to capture some still images from the DVD footage automaticlly. It would also be nice if I can set the intervals of the caption.

Its an on going job and I need to extract about 50 images per DVD, currently I do it manually but it is very time consuming.

Any thoughts ?

Many Thanks

I took a job where the previous person is suspected of A LOT of things.

I was able to put aside her computer after copying what files I might need to do the job, and use a different computer. Her computer sits virtually unchanged from the day she was escorted out.

Now I am being pressed to put it back into commission. I don't know if anything on it will be useful for evidence at some date as we investigate what she was doing. Maybe, maybe not.

What's the best way to capture the image, store it and be able to access it again?

I may end up just pulling the drive and stashing it, but I'm wondering what software is best for it.

Alright, I have some sort of conflict, that is not listed in device manager, between a HP-PSC500 parallel port printer and a Kodak USB digital Camera. The printer and scanner works fine useing the HP software. The camera won't transfer pictures at all. No errors in device manager, but under the "scanners and cameras" applet, the properties of both the scanner and the camera shows as unavailable or disconnected. It's not a USB problem as all other USB stuff works fine, it's not a IRQ problem, It's not a twain problem, It's some kinda image capture problem.

Anyway, I'd like to delete and reinstall all files and registry settings related to video capture. Also, I'd like to try to find any unused capture drivers installed on the machine and delete them. Is there any way to do this without reinstalling? This machine is used for audio production and has 200+gigs of critical stuff on it. Fixing all the midi apps and sound stuff is a pain on installation.

Hi- Single Site, single domain. I have WDS running on Windows Server 2012 Standard. Have been using WDS for quite a while now without issue. Created a new image from scratch, applied all updates, installed apps.
Ran sysprep (successful) and rebooted to initiate an image capture. Selected the volume, selected the WDS server, and storage group. Ran Net Use to map a network drive to copy the image file to. Capture started and gets to 28% and then stalls. Left it overnight
and still at 28%. Tried it twice with the same results.

What's going on here? Where should I look to find info on what the cause might be?

I'm attempting to follow this guide to capture a Windows 7 image:

I have a test PC with Windows 7 installed on it waiting to be captured.

I've installed the MDT 2013 Update 2 and Windows ADK for Windows 10 to my technician PC.  Unlike this guide, however, I have no tree under 'Deployment Shares'.  So I have no option to import an OS.

This seems to be a stumbling block to actually capture an image.  Is there something I'm missing?  Is there something that needs to be configured that I don't know about?  I'm still learning this whole process so it's entirely possible there's
something glaringly obvious I don't see.

I am having trouble with Lab 4 for the 70-680. I have run sysprep on my Win 7 machine and created a WinPE boot disk but I can't boot WinPE boot image. I think it's 4.3 under Create WinPE Boot Image in the lab where you have to boot the image you created. I can't burn the image to a CD - I think I may have done an error before I did the sysprep where it shuts down your machine. I think I didn't point it to the hard disk in command prompt - I followed all the commands in the Labs word for word.
If anyone can help then I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi everyone,

I don't know if I'm in the right section but I been trying to deploy an image to a new model pc which I captured the image from an older model pc used Windows AIK added the chipset drivers offline and did a commit and now I'm trying to deploy this updated image to this new model pc and it doesn't boot into Windows Vista but it will work on the same model pc, althought if I sysprep the image again it will work on the new model, why is that, it's almost seems like the chipset drivers did get installed but then if I sysprep it works. The reason why I'm doing this is because a client has alot of applications and configurations which I want to avoid building her pc from scratch and just capture the image and the chipset drivers offline commit it and then being able to deploy it to this new model pc. It's odd because I'm sure I have done this in the past and for a reason or another it doesn't work.

Thank you for your help.


A:capture image to re-deploy to a new model pc.

The most common reason for an image to fail after Sysprep has been run is the installation of security software. Many security and anti-malware applications will protect the system files which Sysprep interacts with and the resulting image will fail, you may wish to disable or remove the anti-virus software before running Sysprep.

However, where your image will boot properly on the reference system, I would look first at other drivers beyond the chipset driver which are necessary for boot. Most specifically, I would look at the storage driver, especially if you are receiving a 0x0000007B error on boot. There are instructions available for preparing an existing image for migration to a new storage mode included in this Microsoft Support article.

In the middle of the process of the uploading the image captured it tells me "There is not enough space on the disk".
I canceled the process and I can see the xyz.wim file created in the local machine, but no in the WDS server (E:\RemoteInstall).
Obviously I have sufficient space on both, local machine where I am capturing the image and on the WDS server.
Also, both disk drives are NTFS without quota allocation.
Anyone has an idea of how to solve it¿?
I have read some information in Internet, but with no succesful.
Thanks in advanced.

A:WDS - image capture upload - There is not enough space on the disk

You have to create an small (10GB) partition in the client machine, and then in the wizard you need to specify that you want to create the .wim there.
It works like a charm.

Since the most recent update of the Sprout Workspace I have been unable to capture any images or use the document capture. I was able to roll back the updates two days ago and the system worked fine. When I started the computer the next day the update went in again automatically and now rolling back to the old Workspace is no longer an option when I look at the recovery points.  When I try to capture an image I get the following error message: "Request to capture Moment failed with new HPPC_RESULT value as [1.0.d.a0088888] (HPPC_ERROR_EMPTY) If I hit OK and close Sprout and then wait a little the light above flashes the way it should to take an image about 30 seconds to a minute after I tried to actually get an image leading me to believe there is some kind of excessive delay in image capture which is the reason there is no moment captured when the system is looking for it.

Many years ago I had a webcam and bought software that allowed me to automatically capture an image every so often and upload it to a website. Now I have Microsoft Studio webcam and it does not come with any software that I can set up to automatically capture images and upload them to the website.

I know there is software out there that can do this and I have been searching the Internet to find it. So far I have had to restore my system three times. It seems that the software I find comes with a bunch of crap software that even if you tell it NOT to install, the crap software gets installed too. I figure that any software that comes with crap is crap by association; I don't even bother looking at the webcam software, I go straight to restore and get rid of everything.

I am hoping that someone here can provide me with a link to good webcam software. I might even consider buying another webcam if it came with the software.


A:Need webcam software to capture image and post to website

You can use reputable software like virtualdub (Welcome to! -, vlc ( or even ffmpeg (FFmpeg) to capture snapshots from your webcam. This can be done via command line.

For VLC, the command line should look like :

vlc --dshow-vdev="Monitor Webcam" --dshow-size=640x480 -V dummy --intf=dummy --dummy-quiet --video-filter=scene --no-audio --scene-path=D:\temp --scene-format=jpeg --scene-prefix=snap --scene-replace --run-time=1 --scene-ratio=24 "dshow://" vlc://quit

This captures 1 second and saves it as jpg images on D:\temp
More help on command line options :

For Virtualdub (much easier) :

vdub /capture /capdevice Monitor Webcam /capfile D:\temp\video.avi /capstart 2s /x

Same as above but saves it as an avi video file.

For ffpmeg :

ffmpeg -f dshow -i video="Monitor Webcam" -c copy raw.avi \-c:v libx264 -preset veryfast -t 1 -crf 25 D:\temp\video.mp4

This saves as a mp4 video file (h264 format)

ffmpeg -f dshow -i video="Monitor Webcam" -t 1 ?r 25 D:\temp\image%d.jpg

This saves as jpeg images.

I recently purchase a DIY desktop computer but it does not come with a firewire port. I installed one on the pci slot and it was detected by the computer.
Now when I pluged in a 6 to 4 pin firewire cable to my DV cam, I could not do a capture in either the Movie Maker or Premier Elements. It says 'no capture device detected'.
I checked on the hardware under device manager, and it shows that the firewire card is working properly.
I also tried using the USB port on the DV cam to capture, but it was not detected. I heard that it requires a seperate driver from JVC manufacturer. My Cam model is GR-D270.
I would appeciate alot for any answer to my problems.

I bought this Elgato capture card yesterday and I've been trying to get it to work. I've updated my driver, and changed the video quality on both of my monitors, along with the profile (quality) on the software but I keep getting this message:

I don't know what it means by "video output format" but I want to be able to record off of it, so thank you in advance if you know how to help me.
the image link, if you can't see it.

A:Elgato Capture Card: Won't capture anythng

I'm not familiar with it. But based on the image, there is no input signal (upper right box - Game Capture HD "no signal").

So the error is likely trying to tell you to change the output video type of whatever you have connected.

Windows 8 64-bit installed from the DVD without a hitch as a stand alone OS on a 160 GBs WD Scorpio HDD, i5 CPU, 4 GBs memory, 13" MacBook.

The Wi-Fi card is not detected, nor can Windows 8 find it when rescanning the hardware; it's probably an Apple Wi-Fi card, or just a driver issue.

The display quality is sub-par, when compared to the OS X display on the same MacBook, which is disappointing to say the least. The Intel HD Graphics 3000 is part of the i5 CPU; how hard it is to have the correct driver for the graphic card? The display also dims on its own, regardless how the display intensity is set.

Over all, OS X Lion has a much better display and while it is more responsive than Windows 8, the speed difference is due to the OCZ Vertex 3 SSD for the OS X.

hav a macbook is running MAC OS 10.5 Leopard and tired installing XP Pro SP3
thru bootcamp. its supposed to install all the necessary drivers for XP but
this is not true. i needed to install the drivers individually before i got some
built-in devices working. the most important devices are the network, audio,
video/VGA, USB, firewire, mini-DV (for connecting to a projector). so far, the
only device i'm not able to work is the the audio. so, i plugged a USB powered
speaker so now i already have audio. the rest of the devices that are not
really a priority, IR controller, trackpad, keyboard, bluetooth...etc, still needs
appropriate drivers though....

initially, still cant work the a/b/g wifi device, so i plugged a USB a/b/g wifi
wifi dongle. but i now have the atheros wifi driver working. for the audio, i
plugged a USB powered speaker but wish the soundcard device is working.

the sound card is a - SigmaTel STAC9220 A1 @ Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M -
High Definition Audio Controller [B-0]. i have downloaded and installed the
SigmaTel STAC9220 A1 & the Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M chipset controller
driver individually but still doesnt work. the device driver says its already
working but theres still no sound if i use the speaker/headset out port.
there is a red color light on the port which means that SPDIF out shud be

I'm reading the wikipedia page for this, and it appears the bootcamp disk is supposed to have all the Windows drivers. I've never used a mac, so I don't know how this would go. I would guess, go to device manager (start, run, devmgmt.msc), then for each device that doesn't have drivers (should be with yellow exclamation mark), double-click it, go to the driver tab, and click update driver, then insert your bootcamp CD or DVD or whatever it came on, and let it automatically search removable media.

My dilemma . . .

I got the discounted student download of Win 7 Pro Upgrade for $29. I currently have XP installed on my desktop pc. My plan was to install Win 7 on my macbook pro so I could dual-boot (which I did but now won't accept the product key).

After researching, since Win 7 Upgrade requires XP to be installed, is there a way for me to use the XP license to install 7 on the macbook and then continue using XP on the desktop? or will the upgrade invalidate my XP license on the desktop?

Any advice or similar experiences?


A:Win 7 Upgrade on macbook pro

Welcome to SF!

The terms of the Upgrade version way that you must have a previous Windows OS on your machine to use it. No, it is not possible to use your XP key to activate 7. Whether you can install XP and use your other product key will depend on what XP license you have. If you have the retail version, I believe it would be legal. Or you could buy a cheap copy of XP online and install it, then upgrade to 7.

The whole thing is a little hairy, because Microsoft left it up to our honor to follow the license. It is fully possible to install the upgrade version without even having a previous OS!

If I were you, I would read the EULAs of your Windows and follow your conscience.

I think if my budget was $600 - $700, I would go for something new. Does it really need to be a Mac? Macs are decent systems for sure, but always overpriced - even used.

For less than $700, you can get a nicer, brand new Acer with a more advanced and faster processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB HD, a 15.6" 1920 x 1080 display and better graphics processor, USB 3.0, a "new" battery (that's important, in my book) and a full year warranty.

For just $520, you can get this ASUS with a quad core processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB HD and 17.3 inch monitor. And again, with a "new" battery and full year warranty.

If I just had to have a MacBook, I would wait until my budget could afford a new one. While this $1000 MacBook only has a 12" display, it has 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD ("flash") drive. And of course, a full year warranty and a "new" battery too.

My aluminium macbook (late 2008 model) does not turn on ever since it ran out of battery 3 days ago.

I have tried resetting the SMC, NVRAM, PRAM and so forth, but so far all my attempts have been unsuccessful.

When left unplugged, the battery light indicator becomes amber as expected, but the problem is that the battery does not appear to be discharging- except for one, all light indicators are on.
I had been having some issues with the magsafe charger and that could well be the source of the problem but I really don't know what to think....What I find strange is that before this incident, I had to strategically move the wire for it to light up and charge and now that the computer does not turn on, I can move the wire around as much as I like and the lights stay on. This leads me to believe that it might not be charging even if the lights are on.
I thought I should ask before spending money on a charger as it could be something else.

I would appreciate your help and input.
Thank you.

A:macbook won't turn on- please help

"I have tried resetting the SMC, NVRAM, PRAM and so forth, but so far all my attempts have been unsuccessful.

How could you do the above if it won't turn on ?

I think the most likely cause is a wire in the charger lead has finally parted. I can' be anything like 100% sure though, it could be the battery or the logic board or even the power socket on the laptop. I think a new charger is the place to start though.

Hi ljmtwitch,

You could try booting up while holding down Option+Command+P+R. Hold them down until you have heard the start up chime twice, then let go. This will clear up your RAM and might resolve the issue.

Another option would be to go to System Preferences > Startup Disk > Select your boot drive. Then Restart. Sometimes these settings get messed up and need to be reset.

Hi there, I've had my friend's MacBook Pro for a while now, and today I put a new hdd in there. It was larger in storage space, and had all my old files, so why not?

Whenever I press them, it acts as if I'm pressing the function keys that they're on. Not a huge surprise, but I was a bit confused when I couldn't hold down the fn key to use them. Do I need drivers? Also, my audio is mute. I tried all the audio devices but I can't get any audio output, even with headphones (the jack is glowing red, no joke)

If the laptop doesn't freeze within the first couple minutes, then I can continue to run it fine. Just to note: I Windows Messenger Live 8.5 and GTalk are set to run on bootup, and I tend to only run Opera to browse on this thing. And for reference: I never experienced any freezing issues on Vista.

Any thoughts?

Yes! disable video Hardware acceleration in the advanced video settings. Core duo 2 has the infamous intel GMA915gm video adapter that Intel refuses to provide WDM driver...

I downloaded the RC ISO and burned it to a DVD and tried to install it on my MacBook Pro, but the DVD won't boot. I hold down C during boot, they gray screen comes up and the disc spins real fast for a while, but nothing happens.

I have read that the ISO created isn't ISO compliant so you have to create an ISO that is. I followed the instructions here to do that. This didn't make a difference.

I didn't have any problems installing the Beta, but the RC won't boot. Any help is appreciated.


A:RC DVD Won't Boot on MacBook Pro

I've tried putting Win7 on a 4GB USB drive following the directions here. I used rEFIt to boot from the USB drive. It still won't boot.

Has anyone else got the RC to work on a MacBook Pro?

Hi all.
I have MACBOOK AIR with 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor
with 6MB on-chip shared L2 cache running 1:1 with processor speed
1066MHz frontside bus 2GB of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM onboard.

I will install Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac and would like to install Windows 7.
Which type do I need, 32bit or 64bit and which is faster Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Home Premium?
It would be nice to have good speed.
The computer is used only for the basic type of work.
Thank you all for your help,

A:Best Windows 7 for MACBOOK AIR?

The first thing you should do is go to the MS site and take the upgrade advisor test. It will tell you if your computer as well as programs are compatible with Windows 7

There is no difference in the speed of the various versions Professional or Premium

Just replaced my home computer with an HP Pavilion with Windows 7 Home. My old HP Photosmart C4180 printer works with the new computer with no problems, however, we cannot get the Macbook Air to recognize the printer. It finds it, asks for the workgroup and password (which we provide) and then does not connect. Tried disabling firewalls in both Norton Internet Security and Windows and that did nothing. Set the allowance for others to see devices in Windows as well. Any help will save my marriage.

A:New HP PC won't allow MAcbook Air to see printer

Check start/control panel/network and sharing center in windows 7.
Click change advance sharing settings.
Enable network discovery and file and printer sharing.
There are 2 sections to do that,private and public.
Save the changes.
Then go to start/devices and printers.
Double click your printer then double click customize your printer.
Click the sharing tab and select share this printer.
If you want the print jobs run on that computer that is sending the print job,
select render print jobs on client computer.
It will take the load off your windows computer.
Click apply/OK.
See if you can connect.

I have a macbook air laptop and someone formatted its hard and I wanna to know that I can install win 7 without mac OS or I have to install mac OS first and then install win 7?and how?
please help me.
Thank you

A:install mac os in macbook air

You can just pop a windows 7 install usb or use a usb optical drive to install windows like normal then you need to get the bootcamp assistant drivers from somewhere and install them so it can use the stuff for the air. You can also install OSX through internet recovery then bootcamp like normal. How to Re-Install OS X with Internet Recovery on a Mac

You can start the internet recovery reinstall process from either a shutdown Mac, or by rebooting the Mac. This process will be the same on any new Mac, be it an iMac, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, etc:

Immediately after hearing the Mac boot chime, hold down Command+Option+R ? if you see the Apple logo you waited too long and need to reboot and try again*
OPTIONAL: You may or may not see an option to join a wi-fi network, this depends on whether the Mac can access any saved networks from OS X or not.

Good luck.

Issue: I need to boot camp Windows 8.1 onto my Macbook for school software.


A) I purchased the downloadable version of Windows.

Note how they do identify it as a full version, although they say that Windows XP and Vista can not access it.

B) I now have the .exe file for downloading Windows and the product key.
Macs can't use .exe files.

C) The most straightforward course of action is to transfer the .exe file to a USB, complete the download as an .iso, and bring it back to the mac to bootcamp with the .iso.

Unfortunately, I don't have access to ANYONE nearby with Windows 7 or up.

My family whom I live with use macs.
My brother's coworkers in a software firm ALL use macs.
The PCs at my college and at the library don't grant me administrator privileges, so I can't do it there.

What do I do? Are there any workarounds or viable alternatives?
I've experimented with Wine and VMware a bit, as well as using this shoddy little laptop with windows XP, but nothing seems to have worked out.

Hi all,
I have bought a macbook pro about a week ago and than installed just two days ago Windows 7 using boot camp.
For the first few hours it worked properly, than, it started crushing suddenly, restarting. Than it started crushing, with the screen suddenly breaking i pixels... And I had to restart the computer using the button.

Than once it did that and didnt restart properly, so I used the restart device, which delete a few things from the pc but let me log i again. Now it did that again and gave me a driver_irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD so I shutted it down with the button. This time, though, when I tried to use the restart device it crushed at half process, so I tried to log in in safe mode. I worked so I tried to get updates and all as I read to do on a forum. After installing updates it restarted.

Now, while restarting, the screen got black (with backlight) but stayed like this for about 1/2 hours so I used the button again to switch it off.

When I try to turn it on now it stays black and makes a series of *beep* sounds like: *beep* *beep* *beep* PAUSE *beep**beep**beep* and so on.... What can I do? Please, This computer is just new and I spent about 200 euros between mac and Installing windows 7....

Thanks in advance

oh right I also tried to turn it on as a Mac OSX somewhere in the middle of this, but still didnt reach the desktop before crushing...

My son is going off to college. We are buying him a laptop. Thought I'd setteld on ThinkpadZ60M, but he says he 'wants' an Apple. Guess that would be a MacBook Pro.

He's a humanities, probably history, major. Lots of reading and writing and he also has a lot of music on his Ipod. Not a big graphics person. Does like to play games on his computer.

Do I stay with the Thinkpad Z60m or do I get Apple MacBook Pro? I have no experience with Apple machines, but have been reading that there is a lingering issue with thir-party software written for the Mac, which will supposedly have to be rewritten so that it is optimized for Intel, such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop....

Any advice would be appreciated. We don't want to make this purchase more than once!

Mac vs PC???????????? Which and why????

Thanks for your help,

A:Thinkpad or MacBook Pro?????
