    hey guys, my iMac arrived today and I love it, now all i need is some advice. WHAT PROGRAMS DO I NEED FOR THIS IMAC. Is there anything that you can recommend for me to have on this system? I got the 24 inch screen, 3.06 GHz 4 gigs of ram all that good stuff and a free ipod touch with the student discount.

    Is there any tests I should perform on my system to see if everything is in working order? Also, is there a dvd player program that works better than the one we have preinstalled? just wondering.

    TELL ME WHAT TO DO! GIVE ME IDEAS PLEASE AND THANKS U :)

    Hmmm.... do your songs appear in 'Music' right under the Library heading in the left pane or does it appear as <something>'s shared Library?

    OK..... lets check some things!

    If you're songs are from iTMS, have you authorized your iMac to play them?

    Open a song in Finder and get info. Just below the label there should be two boxes, one of them being 'Locked'.... make sure its unchecked!

    Did your music have any other kind of DRM.... what player did you use before?

    i think they might just be locked or not readable by itunes. i used to play the music on itunes on my brothers macbook too. i can play the music but i can't change the tags lemme try what u just said:

    well i am looking at the file info and I see that it's read only for privilege but I still can't do anything. i tried read and write but that didn't work and i unlocked a little lock and it still won't let me tag lol :/
