    Blank CD Not Shown on Desktop
    I'm new to Mac. I have a new 15"PB/Superdrive/Panther.

    When I insert a blank CD isn't an icon supposed to appear on the Desktop? It doesn't.

    I can burn CDs no problem via iTunes.

    1.) Is there a setting somewhere to enable this?

    2.) Is there a program in Panther similar to the PC's Roxio EZCD Creator. (free or cheap - simple and easy) to make data CDs?

    Thanks!

    regretfully, not quite... roxio makes "toast" for mac, whitch is essentially the same program. it runs about $100

    not having tried panther yet (hopefully soon) i can only suggest what can be done via jag. it might be similar...

    under system prefrences, click on CD & DVD under hardware. from there you might have a dropdown menu(s) to tell the system if/how to notify you when you insert a CD. any Panther pros, feel free to correct me on this if i'm wrong

    Thanks, you led me to the right area.

    In SYS PREF > "CDs & DVDs" there's a drop down that asks what to do when a CD is inserted.

    If "Open iTunes" is selected, the CD icon does not appear on the Desktop.

    I changed it to "Open Finder" and now the icon is on the desktop, ready to have files dragged into it.
