    I just got a macbook pro, and I thought that all my programs (even if they aren't supported by intel yet) will still run on my macbook pro, just in rosetta which means it'll be a bit slower. I've got an iTunes alarm program that I want to use, and its installed but whenever I click the dock moves a bit like its making room for an app to open, but doesn't. I have the same problem when I'm trying to install the software for my printer. I deleted all the original printer drivers because when I install the stuff for my all in one so I can scan also, it reinstalls my drivers.

    Any ideas?

    As long as the printer driver installs, why do you want the software?

    Yeah, not everything is compatible...yet.

    For now, try to find alternative programs and like suggested look for the manufacter's update sites.

    Is there a VLC thats compatable, or anything like it? I've got a ton of movie "backups" that I want to watch that Quicktime won't support.

    have you installed Divx, and the MS windows media components? those 2 should play just about any format. reboot after installing each

    Yeah, on the mirror link there are two sections, the first one is for PPC users which is what I downloaded, you had to scroll down a bit to get the Intel ones.


    And I've got the Flip4Mac thing that lets me play WMV files, but I preffer VLC anyways to Quicktime.
