    Can someone tell me where to find the app that will show the image of a disc in the Superdrive (when there is a disc actually in the drive) on a G5 iMac? I thought I had read about it on here, but could not find it with a search.

    I hope that I wasn't too vague...

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I don't think I understand.

    Are you wanting to access hidden packages on a disk (like the OSX disks), because you'll be wanting Pacifist then.

    Are you wanting to make a disk image of an actual disk, then try Disk Utility in the Utilities folder. :)

    No, it's just a cool visual app that looks like a disc on the area of the screen that is in front of the Superdrive.

    So when you put a disc in the slot, the graphic of the disc appears on the desktop.

    You can do that in the Preferences options of Finder, I believe.

    Edit: PlaceofDis beat me to it, you quick bastard! :D

    No, this looks like the actual disc in the drive. The app makes it look like you are looking through your monitor (into the Superdrive) at your disc.

    Maybe I was imagining seeing this somewhere...

    Well there's this faux semi-transparent desktop picture which looks pretty cool IMO but isn't quite what you're after because it won't show the CD being inserted. Still cool though. :D

    I believe you're looking for Disctop...

    I wasn't aware an app like this existed at all - thanks as well for the link! That's what I love about MacRumors, you learn something new every day! :)
