Mac Book Pro doesn't recognize my PaperWhite.

I don't usually sideload books so I don't think I ever really tried to hook up my PaperWhite wifi/3G to my MacBookPro.  I did, however, hook up my other kindles to my old MacBookPro.  This is a new MBP though and I might have had my PW hooked to my old MBP before the hard drive crashed.  I simply can't remember as I seldom hook my devices to my computer.  

I tried rebooting the Paperwhite while it was plugged into the computer.  After about a minute when nothing but white screen, my finger slipped off the power button on the PW and the PW did reboot.  When it came back up, my MBP recognized my PW as a device.  

I properly exited and disengaged the PW and then plugged it back in and my MBP again does not see the Paper white.  Can anyone help me?  I think I bought the PW more than a year ago, so it is out of warranty.  And I'm stumped about what the issue could be.


Which would you buy for the iphone 5, the ipad 4 and a MacBook Pro,  the Square trade warranty?  For 30 more minutes, I can get two years for $69 for the phone and iPad.  My reading generally comes up with equal pricing and Square Trade having better coverage overall, but no technical support and AppleCare has great technical support and higher prices and less coverage.   I have to make up my mind today on the ipad and maybe iPhone, which I don't even have in my hands yet.  But the ipad is past 30 days although the guy told me at Christmas I could buy it up to 90 days later.  And FB has a good coupon tonight for 34 more minutes.

What would you do?

And does anyone know of a reputable ebay seller that sells discount applecare plans?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Cruising with Kindle
« on: January 14, 2012, 10:37:24 pm »
I am looking for some information on what I will be able to do with my kindle while on a cruise in the Carribean in a few weeks.  I have both the KK and the Kindle Touch.  Both have wifi AND 3G.  Will I be able to use my 3G without being charged while on the cruise?  If so, will I be able to check my email from either kindle while using the 3G?  I assume I will have to turn off wifi or be charged, is that accurate?  I'm trying to find an inexpensive way to check my email.  I've never checked email from a kindle. Do you just use the web and do web based email?  Is it a real pain?  Will it work with the Touch since it has less of a real browser? 

Thanks for help from anyone with cruising info.

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / ipad problem -- HELP
« on: January 02, 2012, 11:28:25 am »
I wasn't sure whether to post here or in troubleshooting, but that thread looks to be mostly kindle related.  I haven't used my ipad in weeks, if not a couple of months, except to carry it back and forth to work.  The battery was completely drained.  I charged it up.  Now the ipad keeps crashing in any app.  Including when I go into settings, and click on mail, etc., it freezes.  The in a couple of minutes it crashes and goes back to the main page with my apps on it.  It is doing this in any application that I am in.

I did not upgrade to iOS5 on my ipad or phone and I the app store on the ipad is telling me I have 125 updates, yikes.

Can anyone help?? I have done a hard reset twice by holding down the two buttons and shutting the ipad off when the slider shows. 

I don't know what else to do.  I have not hooked it up to my MBP as I am afraid it will try and update and crash in the middle.  Should I plug it in to the computer and see what happens?  Or is there something I should do from the ipad first?  It's an ipad 1 and I have not had any trouble with it.

Suggestions, Comments / "quick reply" on Kindleboards
« on: December 27, 2011, 07:46:56 pm »
I always use the "quick post" at the bottom of the page to send posts to these boards.  Lately, it is timing me out 9 times out of 10.  I get a message in read telling my my post timed out and to try to post again.  Even if I only take seconds to write something, I still get the same message.  Any ideas on how to fix it?  It's not earth shattering but it is annoying to have to hit the post button twice for every message I want to post.

How do I get the Touch out of the Kindle Lighted cover?  I got it in, but now cannot turn the kindle on, and the light won't work and can't seem to just pop the Touch out of the case.  I can't read my book.....

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / itunes and amazon cloud
« on: April 29, 2011, 04:17:30 am »
Not sure this is the correct location for this but here goes:  I have begun downloading music from Amazon directly to my cloud because it doesn't count against my 20 GB space when I do that.  However, the music is not also going into my itunes even though I have checked both settings that say "download directly to cloud" and then then the the box "download or add to computer".  So it should be storing them in both my computer and the cloud, which is what I want it to do.  But I want it to be itunes that it stores to and it's not going there.
Any suggestions or help is appreciated.  The cloud doesn't do me much good if it's not also going to itunes.  I thought it was doing that, but now it's not.

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Apple does it again!
« on: February 16, 2011, 07:41:22 pm »
Apple does it again!

Apple announced today that it has developed a breast implant that can store and play music. The iTit will cost from $499 to $699, depending on cup and speaker size. This is considered a major social breakthrough, because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts---and not listening to them.

Not Quite Kindle / Lily and Hope and two new cubs
« on: January 22, 2011, 11:57:33 am »
For anyone who remembers me posting a bit about watching a mother black bear and her cub about to leave the den for the first time last March, I have been watching this drama for a year, separation and back together, etc.  Lily had two baby cubs yesterday and Hope is still with her and wanting to nurse.  It is wonderful to watch even though it is not all that clear and there is a humming noise.  These bears are being watched totally in the wilderness with little human interference.  It's research that has never been done before and watching this has been one of the highlights of the past year for me.

Take a look if you are interested:

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / Help with MacBook Pro settings
« on: January 13, 2011, 09:42:18 am »
I was fiddling today, don't even remember what I changed but now I can't get to Safari on my desktop.  It opens, but is behind my desktop and when I click on the title bar it doesn't do anything.  I think I did something to the desktop but no other application open behind the desktop, not even Firefox.  The thing is, before I changed my desktop, I got a new toolbar, which is why I started looking around in the first place because one item on it is Atomic Browser which is an ipad app that I do not have on my laptop.  Can anyone help me get Safari back on top of the desktoP?  I am desperate to fix this because I am obsessed about it and I need to go get ready to fly to Atlanta.
Thanks for your help.

Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / K2 won't complete indexing
« on: December 18, 2010, 02:52:26 pm »
I have one book that won't index.  I have downloaded a whole batch of books in preparation for gifting my beloved k2 to my niece.  Can anyone tell me if there is anything I can do to find out which book isn't indexing?  I hope I don't have to delete and start all over again.  I downloaded three pages and it went ok, then three more and it is stuck on one  .  How much time should I give it?  It's been about 45 minutes now.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I just made about ten folders on my ipad but they are spread across five pages and i can't seem to move them.  Can someone tell me how to move them?  Also when I sync my ipad next, will the folders be in my itunes?   Will the same folders then sync to my iphone or do I have to do them all over on my iphone?
