Help w/iMac g4/ new to forum
Hi, I'm new here to this forum. I have an old (2002) iMac g4 powerpc running tiger.
First things first, Is there a way I can load Leopard w/o losing my stuff?
secondly- i am having LOTS of trouble w/my cd drive. It won't read a majority of the discs I try to load, either to iTunes or the digital software I want to load to do scrapbooks/calendars and cards. It gives me a warning that I loaded a blank DVD even though I know it's not blank. it attempts to load onto my friend's MacBook that has Leopard and now Snow Leopard on it, and it loaded just fine onto my work Dell pc. I can't afford a big fix or a new iMac at this time so I'm hoping that if my drive is failing, that I can affordably replace it in this machine.
Is there a guru out there that can help out a newbie?!?

yes leopard will walk (i avoid calling it running) when you hack a bit , but slow and even leopard is not able to fix a broken drive
and changing the drive is not a big or expensive thing on the iMac lamp

Intelligence does not need Intel inside,
All it needs is good sense outside.
