Hello, im new to this forum. I bought mac os x 10.5 when it was released but went back to 10.4 after several problems. I tried again after the 10.5.5 update was released but the main problems remain. when i insert a dic to install eg ilfe08 leopard tells me there is no default app to open it so i cant install anything also when i try to open itunes im told that the foloder itunes cant be found or created and that the default location for this folder is the music folder, yet when i go to look for it both folders are in the correct location. I thought 10.5.5 would fix these problems but it hasent. anyone have any ideas on how to fix these two main problems .


thanks

How did you install Leopard? Did you just do a straight upgrade, or did you actually do an "Archive & Install"?

If the former, note that there have been some well known issues with straight upgrades. It's better to do an Archive & Install, which retains all of your settings, applications and data, it just puts the old install of the OS in a separate folder and does a clean install. From what I've read that is usually the safest and most stable way to install it. Leopard overall has been pretty solid since 10.5.2.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

i did archive and install the first time. (ive tried leopard 4 times now) Though this time i did the complete erase and install as i read this was the most reliable but still the same problems.
