Like I said, Google that error message and you can find how to search for entries in the host file.

 

Yes I was referring to your keyboard keys...they did it again, there are three question marks in a row in this reply.

    Google Error 2005, someone has used a jailbroken device on your computer and you need to change the host file. Apparently it is causing other problems on your computer as keys appear to be sticking.

    Not to my knowledge!!!! (and this is my private computer). My son bought the original from a WalMart in Hawaii; the second and third units came from the local Apple store (four trips so far).

    Not sure what you mean by "host file"- where would I find that??

    What "keys" are you referring to- keyboard keys???

     

    thanks

    WOW- sorry about the "google" part- missed that.

    Just plugged into another USB on my computer and VOILA!!!!!!!! Drag and drop like a king!!!!

     

    thanks- that was too simple........feel like an idiot (and those exclamation points are intentional!!)
