Mount the disk image and drag its contents into the Toast Data window with Mac & PC as the format and burn the disc. It's also possible that the disk image you have is both HFS+ and ISO9660. Did you try to burn the CD with Disk Utility to see if it included the ISO9660 format?

Many thanks for your response. I'm afraid I need a little education, however. I hope you'll be kind enough to oblige.

 

1. My reading indicates that HFS+ is for Mac and ISO9660 is for Windows as well as Mac based files. Should the .cdr disk image created with Disk Utility contain both formats?

 

2. Can the disk image be check for its formatting? If so, how?

 

3. I interpret your comments as suggesting I burn the CD from the disk image with Disk Utility rather than Toast. If this is correct, how would I check to see if the ISO9660 formatting is there?

 

4. Sorry for what must seem like simplistic questions, but this is an area I'm unfamiliar with.

 

 

Many thanks again for your help.

I wasn't sure but apparently not. Apple says that using the Finder burning does create a disc with both formats, but in Disk Utility the options for creating a disk image only has one format. So my original suggestion of mounting the disc image and copying its contents to the Toast Data window (with Mac & PC as the format) is the way to go.

 

2. Can the disk image be check for its formatting? If so, how?

I'm sure it can but I'm not sure how. You could choose the Image File as the setting in the Toast Copy window and select the .cdr file to see if Toast reports the formats.\

 

3. I interpret your comments as suggesting I burn the CD from the disk image with Disk Utility rather than Toast. If this is correct, how would I check to see if the ISO9660 formatting is there?

Turns out that was a poor suggestion on my part.
