    Guys, listen to this:

    I received my new DP PM two days ago. Yesterday, I tried installing Real Player, and everytime I tried to use it, the program would not load. I posted a message in the help section of macrumors, and everyone that replied said that they didn't have any problems.

    Naturally I was puzzled.

    Today, I solved the problem:

    My name is José (with an accent on the e), and I had name my Hard Disk José's Hard Disk. The program woul not load because of that!!! Can you believe it? I just chaged the name of the HD back to Mac HD and everything worked fine.

    That's weird, huh? :D

    Some of the wierdest issues are solved by overlooked simple solutions. You just have to look at the basics, and you'll find your mistake.

    However, since my name is a shortcut for a Russian name, I'll remember this when I load Realpayer again. :p

    Another annoying thing about real player is the dudes voice who says 'welcocme to real player' and guides you through after you install it. I just thought I would let y'all know that :D.

    That's pretty incredible. For years, I had my hard drive named something Japanese. I think I'll try that and see what doesn't work. :D
