Packet Writing To Cd Or Dvd

pecos bill


I'm running an Intel Mac mini with an external burner and Toast 8. Can I "packet write" to any other disc than a Blu-Ray? I'd like to keep a running backup of some of my files. How can I write multi-session discs to CD-R or DVD-R? I have some PDF and MAX files I'd like to add to weekly plus JPG's I'd like to add to occasionally. I've used up too many discs to try experimenting again. Thanks, Pecos

The Mac OS doesn't support packet writing so Toast doesn't do it. You can write multiple sessions to CD media by choosing Write Session instead of Write Disc in the Recorder Settings window. That option is not available for DVD media because the Mac OS won't read multisession DVDs.


What you might consider instead is one of those USB thumb drives. When it gets full copy it to CD or DVD, then erase it and start over.
