Does your software work on my 10.4.X system?

MacForensicsLab cannot see my iPod, iTunes can. What gives?
In order for our products to detect the iPod, the iPod will need to have Disk Use enabled. For information on how to enable disk use on your iPod please refer to this page “How do I enable Disk Use mode ?”
Can MacForensicsLab or MacImager copy the active startup volume/device?
No, MacForensicsLab or MacImager require the source and the target volumes to be unmounted before proceeding with the duplication – so you will need to boot your machine from a third drive, or a bootable USB thumb drive with the software installed.
Can I make my own bootable CD?
You may be able to use a third party utility to create bootable CD/DVD. However, we have not tested it in-house and there were reports indicating that the bootable CD created via third party utilities may not work properly with our software.
Since Mac OS X version 10.6, MacForensicsLab.com and SubRosaSoft.com have been recommending customers to create a bootable USB thumb drive with our software installed on it. Not only you can use the thumb drive to boot the latest Apple products (and Macs that don’t have any CD/DVD drive), you will see a big speed improvement in terms of start up time too.
How do I enable “Disk Use” mode ?
To enable Disk Use mode on your Apple iPod, follow these steps:
- Connect iPod to your computer.
- Open iTunes and select the iPod in the source list.
- Click on the iPod Options button.
- Select General from the Music/General tab.
- Select the option to Enable disk use
- Click OK.
Can MacForensicsLab recover or analyze my shredded file?
