    It could be a dirty disc or a dirty drive. I wouldn't expect a lack of space because it would warn you before you were close to being able to install.

    Good grief, you people are quick to pounce! Just because something isn't working correctly does not automatically make somebody a pirate.

    Make sure that the CD is clean, maybe try dragging its contents onto your hard drive then install from there. Are you using a retail CD or installing from the disks that came with your system?

    I know that some applications in ilife 06 only work on a new intel core duo mac computer. How old is your computer?

    I agree, but as I said, it is a distinct possibility. :cool:

    1. I've never heard this.
    2. We're talking about iWork, not iLife.

    First (and FWIW) iWork is shipped on a DVD, not a CD. Second, I've seen this problem myself. The solution was to create a disk image of the DVD on another Mac and to copy it to the Mac where it won't install. It was time-consuming, but mainly a hands-off operation, and running the installer from the disk image worked.

    Good God People...It is a legal copy...bought from the UofA computer store, i only use pirated mircosoft software(Screw those bastards)...the disk looks ok...i will try the other suggestions.

    Funny thing is everytime i try and install it it gets to about 10% and then fails...every single time.

    You can't tell if the disk is good by looking at it, and it may not be the disk at all, but the drive. The behavior you report is consistent with a drive issue, which may not show itself except when reading some DVDs. This is not an uncommon issue!

    What sort of computer are you using? You've mentioned a MacBook in some previous posts. Try installing the iWork trial from the DVDs that came with your system. I believe you can enter your serial number to convert it to a full version.
