    When i used panther and switched users the music from the other account would continue to play. Now I have tiger and the music stops playing when i switch users. when i switch back the music comes bacck on however its as if it was playing the whole time.

    Volume on other user was up and other sounds work just not itunes from the account.

    How can I restore this feature to work the way it did in Panther?

    Interesting that you actually liked that feature. I hate this, since when I am ripping CDs, I have my itunes set to import (and not play) while my wife has hers setup to automatically play a CD on insert. So if we are both logged in, her account starts playing the CD I am ripping, forcing me to log her out since I don't want to hear the music.

    Can't say how to get this in Tiger.

    Sorry to revive such a dead thread, but… is there a way? I can’t find anything in a Google search except for a shareware program (iTiR) that doesn’t work in Tiger.
