Instructions for Mac Users

All of the MP3's are located on the actual CD-ROM in the music folder. All of the video clips, text, and photos work fine, but the music files will not play as is. Once the projector is downloaded and placed in the correct location, you will be ready to experience Learn to Freeride and all the awesome things that are on the CD.
