Hi - I too am a Mac user -- since 1986 (Jeff the Mac came out in 1984  
-- remember the Super Bowl ad? -- so while you might be using Apple  
products for 25 years not possible with Mac :-) I had a problem on my  
computer (iBook) with the new Stevie Wonder CD.  Put it in and after  
15 seconds of whirring sounds it was spit out - this happened several  
times and I guess it is not playable on computers.  Curiously enough  
the anti-piracy warning printed on the CD face of Stevie's CD takes  
up twice as much room as the name of the CD!
