8.6. CDs & DVDs

This handy panel (Figure 8-3) lets you tell the Mac what it should do when it detects the insertion of a CD or DVD. For example, when you insert a music CD, you probably want iTunes (Chapter 10) to open automatically so that you can listen to the CD or convert its musical contents to 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 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.

Figure 8-3. 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.
