Time machine automatically upwards a WD passport when its plugged into the machine of time rather than the macbook?

Hello

I have a Macbook Pro with a WD passport for mac that I keep all my photos on.  I know that time machine will back up there if I plug it into the mac and select it to be excluded from the United Nations through the time machine preferences, which I did, but I generally keep the Passport plugged into the time machine itself and use wireless.

However, I don't really know if time machine is it backs up this way, or if it's just a wireless router that allows me to access the Passport.

How will I know if it is saved?  And if not, how can I save it while it is plugged into the time machine?

Unfortunately, it seems as if you are confused about the terms of Time Machine and Time Capsule.

Time Machine is a software on your Mac, which is used to back up your Mac hard disk... like a Time Capsule

A Time Capsule is material... more precisely a wireless router with a built-in hard drive that can be used to store backups Time Machine .

With this information in mind, can clarify you what it is you want to do?

  • Turn off the music when I plug into the speaker / earphone cord

    Turn off the music when I plug speake / headphones cord. Have to unplug to get the music to play again.

    Have you ever force reboot the phone by holding down the button sleep and home for 10 seconds, until the Apple logo comes back again? You won't lose data, but it can cure a few glitches.

    Usually the music stops if you unplug the headphones to the device, and you have to press 'play' again to keep listening via the external speaker.

    If you use the external speaker and plug in the headphones, the song doesn't stop and continues to play through headphones. Just tried it with my camera.

    Then you need id'ing to the application level. Fortunately, Oracle supports these (technical) applications.

    For example, CLIENT_IDENTIFIER seems potentially useful.

  • VN7 - 791G: Wifi slow and unreliable when a USB drive is plugged into the USB ports on the right.

    WiFi becomes quick and reliable whne the memory stick is disconnected. Always reproducible. Does not occur when the memory stick is plugged into the USB port on the left. Also has anyone seen this behavior?

    Wireless network adapter Qualcom Atheros QCA61x4 with the version of the driver 12.0.0.230 dated 03-2016-21.

    Thank you

    Chris

    Hello

    The explanation is simple. I'm sure that the memory stick is a USB 3.0, a plugged in a USB 3.0 port. The problem is that all USB 3.0 devices generate a 2.4 Ghz interference, as it generates interference on the frequency working on wireless. The solution is to connect the player to another port or to spend the 5 GHz wifi if your router supports. The wifi antenna is probably very close to the port and to the USB key.

    This is known for a long time, and has nothing to do with the laptop.

    There is an article on the Web page of intel who described the problem more technically. You can search if you wish.

    This causes a problem also with a wireless mouse, if the receiver is connected next to a USB 3.0 stick or any other device.

  • When I plug in the USB on my netbook and you want to open, it tells me that there is no disc in the drive?

    Hey Toni-LeeFurlotte,

    ·         Have you tried to connect to a different USB port?

    Method 1: Try to connect the USB key to a different port on the netbook and check the issue. You can also connect the drive to another computer and see if the problem persists.

    Method 2: Update of the netbook with the latest chipset drivers. In addition, install other updates of the device driver. Log in the Web site of the manufacturer to do the same thing.

    Method 3: This problem can also occur if there is a drive letter conflict. A drive letter conflict occurs if the disk that is affected by the error is mapped to a reserved drive letter. I suggest you try to change the drive letter.

    Dear customer,

    Welcome and thanks for posting your question on the Forum of Support HP

    It seems that you are not able to turn on the laptop and tried to solve the problem

    Please perform steps listed to find out if it is a hardware or software problem below:

    1. remove all cables and devices, disconnect them and try to turn on the device

    2. check the LED light situation and ensure the action of the spring button / stop is normal

    3 Exchange with a well known power cord and the AC adapter

    4 Pack no adapters are available, check if the power adaptor is slightly warm

    Note: This will give us an indication that the power adapter could be good

    5. do you know if the laptop was in battery or power adapter when you used the last time

    Note: Make sure that there is no spill of liquid or cutting

    6. check if the Port of the AC adaptor is loose/broken

    Note: If the laptop is not on even with a power adapter well known, this confirms the hardware failure with the system board or power DC Circuit

  • square pulse time rather than the sampling frequency and size dependent frequency

    Anyone know if it is possible to create a pulse square with its dependent on the frequency at the time rather than the sampling frequency and size?

    for example if I set the frequency to 10. That means 10 pulses per second.

    rather than having to set the sampling rate and use the equation

    frequency = [(# of cycles) * (sampling frequency)] / sample size

  • HELMET No. Smartphones blackBerry icon when I plug in the BB Bold 9900 helmet. Help, please!

    Hello

    I just got my new BB bold 9900. Has updated the OS to v7.1.714. Now I see not a helmet on the homescreen icon when I plug the headphones of BB. Although I get sound when I plug from the 3.5 mm plug.

    Another issue is when I receive a call I am not able to hear the call, ringing on the headset, rather that I hear from the speaker as I would when no headset is plugged.

    I heard that it is a common problem when an upgrade of the OS is made. Is there a solution? Help, please!

    Hello crazygamerg7,

    Welcome to the BlackBerry support community.

    Thank you for your question about the helmet on the BlackBerry 7.1 software feature.

    The headphones icon should only appear in within the phone application and not on the home screen when connected and on a call.

    The ringtone will also go through the speakers of the device and not on taking 3.5 mm connected headphones. This is normal.
