If an Installation Package (not an application) is written with a 10.5 requirement, it will not install on anything other than 10.5. That does not mean for certain that the software won't run on 10.4, only that the developer put in a 10.5 requirement for the installation package.
Right click on the installation package and select "show package contents". Then open the "Contents" folder in there. There should be an "Archive" file in there, like "archive.pax.gz". See if you can open that. It should contain the actual software. I can't guarantee it will work on 10.4, but it might. If it doesn't, you'll really need to find a version built for 10.4

You can view the files included in the installation package by right clicking on the package and selecting: Show Package Contents

Really depends on what you are trying to do. Which application are you trying to install? Can't you find a version for Tiger?

How to Rip DVD to iTunes for Free


Want to watch movies from your own DVD library on your iPod? With Instant Handbrake, free software for Mac OSX, you can easily make any DVD into an iTunes-compatible movie.<br /> <a href="http://handbrake.fr/">HandBrake</a> is an open-source program designed to convert MPEG video (including DVD-Video) into an MPEG-4 video file in MPEG-4 Part 14 (.mp4) or Matroska (.mkv) containers. The program is used to convert DVDs into other forms so they can be viewed on iPods, iPhones and with the Mac QuickTime Player.<br /> <a href="http://www.rip-dvd-copy.com/images/how-to/handbrake.png"><img src="handbrake.png" /></a><br /> Step by step guide:<br /> 1: Install Handbrake<br /> Simply download the "Windows GUI" from the Handbrake download page then run the installer. It's that simple. If you get a prompt telling you that you don't have the correct version of .Net framework installed, then you'll need to download this from the Microsoft website.<br /> 2: Select your DVD source.<br /> 3: Insert your DVD. You many need to stop the auto-play.<br /> 4: Hit "Continue" in Instant Handbrake. It will begin to scan your DVD.<br /> 5: Select the file you want to convert. For full-length movies, this will be the file with the longest duration. For DVDs of TV Shows, please refer to the "Tips" section.<br /> 6: Select where you want the converted files to be saved to. It's a good idea to save it to your "Movies" folder in Mac OSX.<br /> 7: For the rest of the options on this screen, select H.264 for the "File Format," and for the "Picture Format" select "Original." This will preserve the picture format (wide or full screen) that's on the DVD.<br /> 8: Hit "Convert." The movie will now be converted and saved to the folder you indicated in step six.<br /> 9: Launch iTunes.<br /> 10: Navigate to the folder your movie is saved in and drag the MP4 file into the iTunes Movie Folder.<br /> 11: Hook up your iPod and sync up - or if you manually transfer from iTunes to your iPod, drag the movie on to your iPod. Now you're ready to enjoy your movie on the go!<br /> Tips & Warnings:<br /> If you have a DVD of TV shows, it's recommended that you export each individual show. DVD's have a "Play All" feature, which is all the episodes jammed into one file, this will be the longest duration in the list of files you get in step 5.<br /> You can also export to PSP format if you've got one of those. H.264 is the best quality format for iPod.<br /> Handbrake is a more robust version of Instant Handbrake. The program offers more options, but the concept is the same. This will work on Windows and Linux as well as Mac OSX<br /> Copy protection may prevent DVDs from being converted to iPod format.<br /> More tag info: <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/rip-dvd-to-itunes-free.html">rip dvd to itunes free</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/">dvd ripper</a>, <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/dvdvideoguide/how-to-rip-copyrighted-dvd.html">How to rip copyrighted dvd</a>.<br />

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV Film Scanner driver in an IMac


DS Dual 4 even works with SnowLeopard on a CoreDuo MBP. But it doesn not support Autofocus when used under USB2. You have to use a USB1.1 Port, if you want to use autofocus function. Every time the software crashes, because you tried e.g. to use autofocus with USB2, you will have to close the application, go to the folder User/Library/Preferences/DS Dual4/... and look whether there is a file name something like "MFSlib...." and pull it to the trash bin. You can start the application again. PS.: Your keyboard USB port is a USB 1.1 port!
