    I have used the Disk Utility in OS X 10.4.5 to restore an image that I created with Carbon Copy Cloner. However, when I try to use the Disk Utility on the Restore CD, I run into an obstacle. I cannot click and the drag the target volume to the appropriate windows. Whenever I click and hold the mouse button down, it selects all of the volumes underneath of the volume that I am trying to drag.

    In order to demonstrate the problem, I have put a small video clip on my Web site:

    - Intel Mac Mini, Core Duo
    - OS X 10.4.5 on System Restore discs
    - Logitech cordless optical mouse (USB)
    - Logitech cordless keyboard (USB)

    I've occasionaly had similar problems like that, when I wanted to create a RAID using Disk Utility booted from DVD.

    The only way I got the "drag and drop" to work properly again, was to restart the Mac...
    Hope that'll work for you.

    1. Make sure you are clicking precisely on the Disk Icon.

    2. Try clicking a holding slightly longer on the destination Disk
