Disctop Pro for Mac2.6

11 January 2008

Uniquely displays CD/DVD on your Mac desktop.

What is Disctop Pro for Mac

Disctop Pro... We made Disctop to bring a bit of fun in working with your brand new iMac G5, although it can be of use as well, and not only for owners of an iMac. Normally when you insert a CD in your Mac it disappears, but where does it go? They simply pop up on your desktop! After installing Disctop, your inserted CD or DVD slides in from the side and neatly fades back into your desktop picture. Now you always know if there's a disc inside, and what type it is. Of course there are plenty of things to tweak and make Disctop fit your Mac perfectly.

What's new in Disctop Pro

Version 2.6:
  • Leopard compatible
  • Added support for new mac models
  • Added Traditional Chinese language
  • Updated artwork
  • Consistent CD size throughout different Mac models
  • Fixed a numer of bugs

Are you working on an update for snow Leopard? It seems to work, for the most part. The only major issue I've seen is that it doesn't register when a disk is ejected. Had to turn it off and on in the prefpane to get it to stop showing the install disk for 10.6. Also, having to relaunch System Preferences to load the 32-bit prefpane is annoying. ^_~

Great idea, but it takes about 5 seconds to show the picture after inserting a disc, and does not remove the picture after ejecting, even if I choose Eject from the Disctop menu. Using iMac G5 17" 1.8Ghz, 1.5Gig RAM.

Great program, does just what it says... the cd art has been accurate about 9/10 times, which is pretty good i suppose. Never really listened to cds on my mac before but i like knowing what in there, great program. Question: is it taking up memory and cpu when there is no cd in the drive??

I purposely didn't read the instructions in order to test how intuitive Desktop Pro would be... it connected to Amazon and Eva Cassidy's 'Time After Time' sits on my desktop. Hmm, what's that little transport thingy? Sure enough, it launched iTunes and started playing the disc. Would I pay for this toy? Probably not. Is it useful? Can't say, but I know simple elegance and sheer fun when I see it. Thanks, Mek, five stars.

For the Mac mini (and other 'headless' Macs), you really need to be able to put the image wherever your mini is relative to the screen. How about CMD-dragging the CD image to any side or corner?

Note to (stupid, we agree) version numbering, it looks like there's a new version of Disctop Pro (2.0), while in fact Disctop Pro has been version 2.0 from the beginning. For those already having installed Disctop PRO, you have the latest version already.

Note: Disctop only works in machines containing an optical drive that is capable of writing CDs and/or DVDs, as it depends on the disk recording framework. Unfortunately that means that on machines having a CD-rom drive only, like a Pismo PowerBook, Disctop will not work. We will try to fix this in an upcoming update. Mek & Tosj

Kind of fun, but takes up memory as well. You can check how much memory it takes from activity monitor. It's fun but not a need for me. I'll use it if I have iMac G5. Would it be possible to check the music CD label from net and display exactly the same label when we insert music CD? That would be more fun :)

Super fun (on my TiBook)! As a visual indicator because I have to turn off Apple's General Preferences for "Show CD, DVDs and iPods on Desktop" simply because I prefer not to have my external 3-way partitioned hard disc (LaCie) show up on the desktop. (Why did Apple append external hard discs to the l CD-DVD ist?) Thanks. The disc-size first took me off guard, but now it seems "appropriate".

From the screenshot, is this just a preferencepane? Just a comment, but an app might be easier.
