Just purchased an iMAC and loving it...!!! However, when I clicked on iDVD and select "magic iDVD" the following message appears:

Not allowed to burn cd/dvd on this system

User is not allowed to burn to this device on this system. Please check with your administrator for the Parental Control settings.

How do I get rid of this...?

Thanks in advance.

can some help us? My friend bought a floor model (white) for 1249 with lepoard (excuse speling) but she has the same problem, I can't help her. Where do we look to change the settings so the lock can be removed?

re-install, a brand new machine, shouldn't be an issue

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Thanks guys for all your help - I think the best thing for me to do is to re-install as suggested - I really appreciate your help & I've fallen in love with the iMAC!

Glad you got it working and welcome to the forums.

Does this happen with all the brand new machines? cos that seems a little strange...

P.S. it's iMac, only the 'M' is capital
