    I just received my 2007 Wiha Tools catalog in the mail today, but to my surprise, they sent a CD version. When I load it into the optical drive and play it, it looks like a PDF file. Is there a way I can just download it onto my hard drive? :)

    If it's literally just a PDF file, just copy the file over to your Documents folder (or wherever you want to put it). If it's a little more complicated that that (i.e. there are a bunch of files on the CD) then you can open up Disk Utility in the Utilities folder and make a .dmg file of the CD (using the New Image tool in the toolbar).

    Thank you sir - All I had to do is go under File and click on Export and save as a PDF format to my Documents folder. It couldn't have been easier. :)
