  1. You folks may be getting confused. There are TWO Library folders in a Mac. (Actually, there are THREE - but most people don't find the third one too often). There is one that's in the ROOT of your hard drive. So if your hard drive is labeled "Macintosh HD" (most of them are by default) then you might find this Library folder: MACINTOSH HD | ---> LIBRARY This is the Library folder that applies to the ENTIRE computer. It has stuff in there that is in effect no matter what user account is logged in. That's NOT the Library folder we are looking for. We want the one that's actually particular to your user account. So let's say your name is John Doe and your home account's "shortname" is named 'johndoe' - the CORRECT path would then be: MACINTOSH HD | ---> USERS | ------> johndoe | -------> LIBRARY | -------> APPLICATION SUPPORT | -------------> STEAM etc... Now an extra wrinkle is that the Library folder is hidden by default with the newer OS versions. But there's an easy way around it. You can just ask the Finder to open that window directly, without having to navigate from folder to folder. All you do, is while on the Finder, select the GO menu at the top, then select the option "Go to folder…" and up will pop a field asking to TYPE the folder you want it to open. Here's the super easy shortcut: Type in this window the following text (minus the quote marks): "~/Library/Application Support/Steam" The important thing (and what may have been tripping you folks up, is that you MUST put that "~" wavy line symbol BEFORE the first slash mark… that character is a TILDE. It's usually the shifted character of the single-quote mark at the very top-left corner of a standard North American keyboard - next to the numeral "1" key and right below the ESCape key. Anyway, if you type that line in the Go to folder field box, and then press return, you will be taken STRAIGHT to the Steam folder and you can now continue to navigate until you find the appropriate DLC folder. Good luck! Picture of the "Go to the folder" field box: https://www.dropbox.com/s/na5jhz7yvx72lek/Screenshot%202014-07-05%2023.36.34.png -fw :mrgreen:
