Computer Requirements for CD video included with the book:

MAC users,

PC Windows Users:

  • 486 PC
  • Windows 95/98/NT 4.0
  • 16 MB Ram
  • Pentium Processor 80 MHz or better
  • mpeg video player
  • 16 bit sound card
  • FYI: There is an offer on the back cover of Star book to order these 50 star blocks on CD. These blocks are not included on the demonstration video. The 50 star block CD is not available for sale at any retail location and must be ordered directly from the manufacturer. Details are in the book.

MAC users: The CD is set up for to run using Windows PC and if you have Virtual PC you can use the CD as is. The CD will also run on your MAC OS system, use the following instructions provided by Carol Doak:

You should be able to use the CD on your Mac if you have Quicktime version 3 or later. You can download version 4 off of the Apple website for free at:

The only odd thing is that the CD file is named with a .mpe instead of mpg and it may have to be renamed in order for it to work. This requires copying the CD to your hard drive which takes about 500 MB of disk space. It's well worth the trouble if you have the space to do it, as there are lots of great tips. By the way, I didn't know how to do this all on my own. My husband is a systems engineer for Apple, and he did it for me. Hope this helps!

Required software on the Mac: QuickTime 3 or >

These are the direction for Quick Time 4:

1. Place the video CD in your CD drive and open the file and place the mpe file in your hard drive.
2. Click once on the name and change mpe to mpg
3. Open Quick Time
4. Go to file, open and click on the star mpe file in your hard drive and you will be viewing the CD.
