    Have used Volume Logic with iTunes for a few years and was very disappointed when it turned out to be incompatible with Leopard…

    However Plantronics have offered a "fix" on their website.

    Now, before running any command line fixes, what is the likely damage with the following commands? Or is it harmless?

    * Close iTunes if open
    * Open Terminal: Applications/Utilities/Terminal
    * Copy and paste the following
    * cd /usr/lib
    sudo cp libcrypto.0.9.dylib libcrypto.0.9.dylib.old
    sudo cp libssl.0.9.dylib libssl.0.9.dylib.old
    sudo ln -sf libcrypto.0.9.7.dylib libcrypto.0.9.dylib
    sudo ln -sf libssl.0.9.7.dylib libssl.0.9.dylib
    * If you are asked for your computer password (not a Volume Logic password), enter it and then re-paste the code into Terminal again.
    * Close Terminal
    * Open iTunes

    Any help? :eek: Thanks!

    PS. Yes, I have looked at iWOW… Volume Logic just sounds better to my ears. :p

    I can't answer your questions, but thanks for the heads up about the Leopard update! I emailed them right after I installed Leopard and they said that there were no plans to upgrade their product. I'm so glad they changed their minds!

    Unfortunately the product is still discontinued… and I think the next update to Leopard or iTunes will probably "break" this fix again. :(
