    I am having a problem connecting to the exclusive bonus content on the acdcrocks.com website.

    I have a legit CD with the appropriate markings telling me I can access said content.

    Now I have read the instructions and I have no problems up until the point It says It cannot find the appropriate CD in my drive.

    I do run safari/firefox using the rosetta designation.

    Any Ideas why the website cannot see my CD.

    thank you in advance for your time

    Probably because it needs to be run from Windows.

    *** Edit *** just checked the site for requirements (they are given below). The short of it is that you need (surprisingly) a Mac running Mac OS 8.1 through 9.2.2 (OS X is not supported) or a PC running Windows.

    Here's the quote:


    Each of the CD's in the Epic-reissued AC/DC catalog will enable fans to access exclusive bonus content specific to each individual release, including rare audio and video footage, extended liner notes, photos, historically accurate memorabilia & tour dates, and more!

    In order to get ConnecteD, you will need the following:
    A CD copy of an AC/DC re-issue
    A PC (minimum system requirements)
    A CD-ROM drive
    An Internet connection

    SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

    Guess that means No ACDC Bonus Material.

    note to acdc band members:

    Sorry boys (ACDC), but if its run windows or not watch your material, its not watch your material.... Its Not that I don't like you, its I Deplore Microsoft.
    :cool:


    Please factor in OS X

    Maybe the guys from AC/DC just prefer the Classic Mac :D

    Vintage all the way ;)

    Nostalgia aside, I do find it weird the OS 9 will work, but OS X will not.
