Disks burnt on Windows don't read on Mac


donald novak

Question

Ive been trying to make an upgrade disk for an iMac for a friend. I downloaded several upgrades for OS 9, etc, and burned them to a disk on my PC using EMC 7.5. I found that the Mac would "mount" the CD but could not see the files unless I put them in folders before burning them. Then I found that if I added anything to the disk on the PC in a subsequent recording session, the iMac doesn't see even the new folders. When closing each session, I chose "to run on any computer", using UDF, Joliet, etc., but I did not lock the disk to prevent further additions, and my PC would read everything I had burned. Any idea why this happens or how to get around it? (The iMac does read any file from a flash drive.)

OS9 is the Win3.1 of the MAC world…

 

You need to use Classic, not D2D, and set the Project Properties to ISO9660.

 

This will also limit you to 8.3 filenames but it is what a MAC of that vintage needs to read the disc.
