Hour 18. Accessibility Features and Addi... > Hardware System Preferences

Hardware System Preferences

Hardware preferences, such as those for monitor, keyboard, and mouse, are found in the Hardware section of System Preferences. Displays and ColorSync were discussed in Hour 17, “Monitors and ColorSync.” In this section, we look at the CDs & DVDs, Energy Saver, Keyboard, Mouse, and Sound panes. For those with compatible graphics tablets, the Ink preferences also appear in this section, as discussed in Hour 3, “Basic Applications for Productivity and Recreation.”

CDs & DVDs

The CDs & DVDs panel enables you to direct your computer what to do when CDs and DVDs are inserted in your drive. The default configuration, shown in Figure 18.3, launches the appropriate application included with Mac OS X when you insert a music CD, photo CD, or DVD. When you insert blank media, the Finder prompts you to choose an application to suit your purpose.
