8.3. CDs & DVDs

This panel is new in Mac OS X 10.2—and it's rather handy (Figure 8-2). It lets you tell the Mac what it should do whenever it detects the insertion of a CD or DVD disc. For example, when you insert a music CD, you probably want the Mac to open the iTunes program (Chapter 10) automatically so that you can listen to the music, or convert it into MP3 files on your hard drive. Similarly, when you insert a picture CD (such as a Kodak Photo CD), you probably want iPhoto to open automatically, in readiness to import the pictures from the CD into your photo collection—and when you insert a DVD from Blockbuster, you want the Mac's DVD Player program to open automatically.

Figure 8-2. You can tell the Mac exactly which program to launch when you insert each kind of disc—or tell it to do nothing at all.
