Hi.As a new user,I have a problem.On restarting my imac rev c 266 running 8.6 I was informed that "No File System Access modules could be found in your System Folder.Therefore the Foreign File Access software was not installed".Please can anyone help?I am now unable to play Audio C.D's.Thanks.

From the Extension Manager Control Panel make sure the "Foreign File Access" extension is selected and loaded.

Make sure your Apple CD Driver extension is also active. Then try deleting the CD prefs located in the Preferences folder inside the System folder...restart and see what happens. While you are at it do the same for Finder prefs.

If still no luck then try creating a second System folder using the CDs that came with your Mac. Mac sure you DO NOT to a Clean Install since you want two System Folders. After getting the second system folder in place then create two empty folders in the older system folder and place the Finder suitcase in one and the System suitcase in the other. Both are at the root level of the System folder. then once this is complate you can restart your mac and it will boot off the new system folder.

Once booted try to play your CDs...what happens now? If it works try moving those extensions I mentioned before to the old system folder and putting the Finder and System back in place, then put the newer system folder in the trash and reboot.
