On the Road to Tiger

Or "A tutorial to get your DVD library back once on Mac OS X v10.4":

* If you chose to upgrade from Mac OS X "Panther" (or "Jaguar"), you shouldn't have anything to do: your user's account should be preserved, your data still available; you'd only have to launch (and enjoy using) fennel DVDManager under Tiger.

* If you chose to clean install Mac OS X "Tiger" (i.e., through some formatting of your startup volume), be sure you've backup-ed your entire "DVDManager" folder (which is located in your user's account "Library" folder) before running this erasing installation process: you can either use Finder's File > Create Archive of "DVDManager" menu item (good), or our new File > Export DVD Library to Desktop action from fsDM v1.6 (recommended).

Once under Tiger, you'd only have to expand this ZIP archive into your new user's account "Library" folder, for fennel DVDManager to transparently load your data back on its next launch.

Don't hesitate to contact us for any question… We wish you the smartest transition to Tiger ;) !

fsDM & Mac OS X v10.3.9

After updating to Mac OS X v10.3.9, some users may have issues when trying to launch fennel DVDManager :( ! FYI, Apple just released Java Update for Mac OS X v10.3.9 (Download — 1 MB) which resolves that issue.
