  • Replied in Majic
    I am still using the D300 that I bought new in 2008 in addition to my back up...the venerable D50.  The D50 has a flash synch speed of 1/500 which is great when using fill flash outdoors plus I ...

  • Ok.  I was able to copy the library over to the disc even though it was not in the optimal format.  All seems ok, it opens up fine with Aperture 3.6, and pics look great. I took another drive, ...
  • I am making headway.  I reformatted the new hd to APFS (just trying something different). The old computer now recognizes it, well actually only part of it.  It is a 3TB drive and it only sees ...
  • I used migration assistant and it was unable to transfer neither Aperture nor the Aperture Library.  I am unable to get the Aperture onto any new hd. Thank you for helping,
  • The old computer is running Snow Leopard. The new hd that it can’t recognize is formatted to Extended Journaled. The new computer recognizes the back up drive that has the library on it but it ...
