I have the pleasure of working with two macs. One is a Mac Pro and the other is a first generation MacBook Pro for working remotely. This has been especially helpful given the rise in fuel costs. What has been challenging is keeping the data on the two machines in sync. There are several ways to do this and in this article I will discuss three ways.
We all have reasons for importing our DVDs onto our Mac. Whether it is to preserve the movie if the original DVD gets scratched, or to have the ability to carry your movie collection in a digital format.

Probably the single most frequently-asked question of our editors here at iLounge is “How do I copy music from my iPod back to my computer?” Although Apple’s iTunes program is very good at keeping a computer-based library synchronized to an iPod automatically, or for manually transferring tracks from your computer’s iTunes library onto your iPod, it provides extremely limited functionality for transferring information in the opposite direction—from your iPod back to your computer. One of the likely reasons for Apple to have taken such a restrictive approach to this is to combat piracy and thereby maintain good relations with the music labels that are currently selling their content via Apple’s iTunes Store. In reality, however, there are any number of legitimate reasons why a user may want to copy music from their iPod back to their computer, such as recovering from a catastrophic system failure, or easily transferring a large iTunes library over to a new computer.
