Default Burning DVDs on Mac to read on PC?

sponsored links

 
Hi There Everyone,


I was just wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to burn files on a mac dvd burner in a format that will allow pcs to read the discs also?

I cannot seem to find any options in toast for different iso standards?


Any help would be most appreciated.


Many thanks,


Clint



P.S> Please feel free to e-mail me any pc or network troubleshooting questions... I am a lot better at that [email]clintloop@yahoo.com[/email]

The dvd format should be UDF so it should work in macs or pcs

There is only one iso9660 people just put there own little tag on it
example .gi files by prassi are still regular isos you just have to change the file types and they can be burned as regular iso

The .bin files with cdr-win can be burned as regular isos if you have toast 5

Hi Ps2Daddy,

Thank you for your fast reply, I will have another go with the dvd drive.. I am a PC user at home, but at work we all have macs, I was keen on backing up my pc files using the mac dvd burner but when I tried the dvds seemed to only work on the mac?

There was a problem with the particular mac I was using at the time, it seemed to be just destroying cdrs.. I will try another machine and let you know

The web site below confused me somewhat, as the chart seemed to imply that there were some dvd formats that only Mac OS could read:

***********.osdata.com/holistic/connect/filesys.htm

Still, I will have a go and let you kno....

Thank you very much for getting back to me, have a happy New Year!


Clint

P.S. I have a PS2, I assume since you are the ps2daddy that you will already have Vice City, GTA3, GT3 and Simpson Road Rage.. If not please contact me by e-mail I appreciate there are rules in this forum so I will say no more..

if you format a cd
HFS Extended or
HFS the disks can only be read on a mac

However if you format the disk in using dvd format and create a folder it should work fine

I also think you can use the iso9660 format and fill up a dvd with no problem either of these should work on pc (the HFS/iso hybrid should work also)

DVD's are normally in the UDF format (Universal Disk Format) this format is compatible with mac or pc's

Also thanks for your offer
I do already have all those games
I also program some ps2 chips and I install and do all sorts of PSone/PS2/Gameboy/X-box Modifications

You can let me know if you need some help on that end

If you go to the 4th window on the top and activate the pulldown menu DVD is one of the choices of format create a folder and stuff all your files in there it should save everyting in UDF format and it should be able to be read in PC's or macs

Let us know what happens
