ok, i don't know if this already on here somewhere, but i'll just give you my specific problem:

i have a 13" Macbook, a little over a year and a half old. 160 GB HD. my HD went a few months ago, and i just got the new one yesterday, it's the same kind that was in the computer before, 160 GB, fujitsu, all that jazz. i ran my disk utility & partitioned the drive, and started it up with my original Mac OSX discs that came with the computer. part way through the install, it stops and tells me "The installer could not validate the contents of the 'AdditionalSpeechVoices' package. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance." i cleaned the disk, tried again, and i keep getting the same thing. problem with the HD or the install discs? any suggestions are better than what i'm working with now. thanks in advance!

That sounds like your install DVD may be scratched or there's a problem with your SuperDrive. If the DVD looks like it's in good condition (no scratches or warpage) and it still won't install, you should probably try to clean your SuperDrive. You can buy a cleaning kit at most places that sell computer accessories. I just bought one at Office Depot for $11.95.

Get back to us and let us know.
