    Need For Speed Carbon Help

    i have discovered that the DVD disappering is something that just happens, but that the reason the game crashes is because it is conflicting with the sound card.

    Need For Speed Carbon Help

    Yesterday i went to my local Apple Store because i was bored and had nothing to do. After wandering around in the store for a while, and brought a copy of Need For Speed Carbon. I purchased it and went home to install it on to my MacBook Pro (2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, OS X 10.4.10, 128MB Graphics Card, stock MacBook Pro except for the glossy screen). After waiting 30 mins or so for the game to install, i started it up and began to play. This is where the weird part comes in. In order to play the game, u must insert the game DVD for the game to play. But after u have started the game with the DVD in the superdrive, the DVD icon disappears. U can hear the drive spool up and the game starts, but later on as u r playing the game, the game will crash and bring u back to the desktop. When u arrive at the desktop, the DVD icon is still M.I.A. I was wondering 1.) Why the DVD icon disappears and 2.) If the dissapearing icon has anything to do with the game crashing. Thanks for the help!

    Shared iTunes Libraries

    I was wondering if there was a way to tell who is connected to your shared iTunes library. I've done some research, but really haven't found anything useful.

    GarageBand 08'

    I just purchased a new MacBook Pro and it came with iLife 08' preinstalled on it. I decided to play around with with GarageBand, but when i clicked on one of the loops to put into my song, i discovered that none of the loops were installed. It prompted me to use apple software update to install the loops but when software update opened, it did find anything. I was wondering as to why none of the loops are in GarageBand and how to get the loops into GarageBand. Thank You
