    how can i make quicktime the default player for mp3's? ive went into preferences for quicktime and selected it, but it still shows iTunes as the default player and i cant find where to uncheck that.

    is there a way that i can import files/playlists FROM my iPod to iTunes on my powerbook?

    how come I cant select folders within folders when i save something. say i want to save something in my "mp3" folder that is in documents. when i click save, it only shows up "documents" to be saved in

    after i download something, how can i get it to open that file immediately instead of me having to locate it, then open it

    How do you open a second finder session so you can transfer from one subfolder to another?

    in the downloads window, press the option key and click on the time left, it will change from time remaining to kb/sec.

    to get the pictures to load, i generally just hit the reload button (or Apple+R). if thatdoesn't work, then it's assumed that there's something up with the file (moved or deleted from the server, typo in the link, etc.).
