I have a new MacBook Air running OS X 10.5.6. I also have a Venus Gogo hard drive reader, which I just found out is only compatible with OS X 10.4. I know there's a way to run OS 9 on top of OS X, but is there a program that will allow me to emulate OS X 10.4 in such a way that will allow me to view the contents of the hard drive on the Venus Gogo?

    There is no way to run Tiger on a new Mac that came with Leopard. You will have to wait for Leopard compatible software for the reader.

    Hi Taylor's MacBook Air;

    A Mac is not able to run a version of the operating system older then it is. TBOMK there is no such thing as an emulator to give you OS X 10.4 capabilities on a MacBook Air. Even it there was it is doubtful that it would give you the hardware level support you need to run it anyway.
