    I'm about to put my files on a CD, since the new delivery date for it to arrive is May 24th, and this is the only day before then that I don't work.

    Can I just put folders onto a CD, or will I have to take the files out of the folder and put it on the CD to transfer to the Mac?

    I just didn't know if Macs will be able to read the windows folder. It's a pretty dumb question.

    The Mac will be fine with the folders. a CD you burn on Windows will work on OSX and vice versa.

    I apologize if this is sort of irrelevant since it concerns PCs, but are there any free programs that can transfer songs from an iPod onto a PC without any trials or song limitations?

    iirc, .sit is an archive. Double-click and it'll extract. Then you'll get .kext files which go into /System/Library/Extensions


    I think that's right. At least from my experience it is...

    When I double click this file, it says that there's no default application used to open it, and it asks me to choose a program.

    But I don't know what application to choose.

    Mm, forgot I downloaded that...

    I was correct about which folder, right? If so, damn, repeatedly having to type stuff in Terminal helps. :lol:

    I came in here to say I found it.

    But thanks.

    ok, i put in the driver, but now when i click the thing in system preferences for the driver, it says i can't access it on the computer and to contact the software developer for a new version.

    does that mean i won't be able to run this?

    nevermind, i think i found an update.
