    Does Sd2f Format Create A Perfect Image Of Audio Cds?

    I bring this question as this is the closer I got to my problem from the search I made. I need to create a enhanced cd using an existing PMCD with CD-Text and ISRC codes. The way I do this is creating a first session for the audio part and a second one (disc finalized) for the Custum hybrid Mac/PC data. The thing is that Toast seems to not keep the CD-Text and ISRC data once the disc is finalized with the 2nd session. I first tried creating an image (SD2F) and burned the first session with it. Just checked over the PC with CD-Text player software, all showed correct. I then burned the 2nd session (Custom Hybrid) and finalized. Checked again on the PC for CD-Text and doh!, nothing. I then tried to make a direct copy of the audio cd and checking "Write Session". Same thing, no CD-Text. It says SD2F creates perfect audio cd copy, but what's the problem with enhanced cd ? Usually, we create audio first session on our mastering PC suite, and finalize on Mac wiht Custom Hybrid, so all works great that way. But for this one, I'm stucked with a PMCD only. Thanks for your help! Pierre

    Custom Hybrid with audio, ISO names truncated

    I finally found what was wrong, though I don't understand why. I burned the audio session as always w/ CD-TEXT then, instead of using an image for the data files (.toast), I burned directly from the Custom Hybrid option, and files names were ok on PC. If anyone can tell me why, I would really appreciate!
  3. I did many Enhanced CD before using this technique w/o problem: Create Temporary partition; Place files and folders, view options and window position; Drag this image to a Mac only project HFS standard and make another image auto-open; Mount this image to make a Custom hybrid project, sharing files for Mac/PC, so must use Optimize-on-the-fly (ISO with Joliet names and Apple extensions); First burn Audio session then close the disck with the hybrid image. It always worked, but today, doing this gives me truncated names to 8:3 for the ISO side???? If I only burn the exact same hybrid image (w/o audio), names are ok, but when burning audio first, the same hybrid image will have names truncated to 8:3, why???? Tried w/ and w/o CD-Text, Optimze-on-the-fly on/off, no luck. And don,t suggest using Mac/PC option as it can't place window and files as I want. Using latest Toast 8.01 on Mac OSX 10.4.8.
