    I seem to be missing all my media related apps IE Imovie Iphoto and Garage band. Does anyone know how to get these back?

    Use the discs that came with your computer to re-install iLife

    Do you mean the disc I installed Tiger from?

    It sounds like you wiped your factory installed Tiger installation and re-installed using a retail copy of Tiger. Is that right? If so, you need to use the install disks that came with your computer to reinstall Tiger, or use a utility like Pacifist to extract the iLife packages from those disks and install them into your current application.

    iLife is provided with new computers, not with the OS. That's why a retail copy won't have the iLife applications, but the original install disks will.

    Yeah you can just put in your restore discs and browse the discs for the files and applications.
