    When I insert a blank CD into my iMac I can't find it on the desktop or in the Finder. I have tried several CDs but they I still can't find them. :(
    I am thinking this is a very simple thing. :eek:

    Thanks. :)

    Do you have finder-preferences 'show cd' checked on?

    hmm. Thats strange. Try this, goto system preferences-cd/dvd
    and then select , when i insert a black cd, ask me what to do.
    Then try and insert a cd

    I already have that selected. Should I have it open in Finder?
