i have a 2-month-old MAC pro quad. it has 9 GB RAM, one standard 250GB hard drive, and 3 750GB drives striped together in a RAID. it has almost no software on it, except for most recent tiger, itunes, safari, etc. it was bought specifically to work on finale. for general things, i have an eMAC. So this quad is empty and powerful.
i purchased the new finale2008 and received three CDs to install. CD 1 goes OK and i believe it is into the install of the Garritan sounds before it asks for CD 2. CD 2 continues the Garritan install - and in process at 73% each time - the CD rom drive just goes silent and stops and a message says to start the install again. this has h appened 3 times consecutively and at 73% in process on the CD 2.
has anyone else experienced any problems with finale2008 installation from the CDs? i am thinking it has to be a problem with the disk. i just don't think the quad is behaving badly.
all ideas are appreciated.
spoke to finale techs today who say the problem is in the disk medium itself and are sending a single DVD with all installations instead of a 3 CD set. they said that Garritan has had problems repeatedly putting their software on the CDs for this finale 2008 releaes.
thanks to all for looking at to Leaf for a reply
