You are the man!!!!!!!

It worked... Well, I dont know what exactly was done, used toast like I would for a CDR, setting it to hybrid hfs/iso... but all I did was added 4gb of stuff and used a dvd.

I was stuck with two mac system files. totalling about 3mb, but the dvd worked great in the pc!!!!

I dont think I am doing it properly because it will only burn at 1x, therefore taking abot 55min per dvd, and I dont know if I was supposed to set it up like a hybrid cdr but this is still exellent!!!! I can now store everything onto dvd!!!

Thank you very, very much for your help.

Will let you know if I work anything else out!

See you Ps2daddy

Hi Again,

I am sure you already know this, but, I just found out today that the speed at which you can burn a dvd is dependant on the media you use... wow.. I was stuck at 1x but it turns out that is becuase I have been using Bulpack 0.50 disks which are only 1x compatible....

Also, having tested the first MAC -> PC dvd I have found that lots of data, say the last 2.5gb on the dvd is unreadable? Even though Roxio Toast verified it ok? Have you ever seen this? I am going to give it another try just incase it was bad media or something?

Talk 2u soon...

Tried it again, only 2 out of 7 files on the dvd actually work on the pc, it sees the others but they cannot be copied... all it says is "Parameter not correct"

All files work on the Mac.

Any help would be most appreciated

Actually, the dvds show up in the pc as max capacity 1.99gb... any files in the latter 2gb or so are corrupt.......


I am now experementing using OSX dvd burning, all of the modes seem to use UDF but the file systems vary, I have found that with disk managment I can erase and re-create the volume of the mounted dvd and set it to MS-DOS file system (FAT)... I will see if there read in the pc... also I will try using apple 2x media.

Hi... Dont know if anyone will read this? I am sure I am boaring people now...

For the benefit of anyone who may find this thread... The Hybrid Mac / PC DVDs work fine if you use Apple media, When I used Bulkpaq I was only able to access the first 2GB on the PC?

Thank you PS2Daddy for your help. I would not have worked this out without you!!!!

If anyone knows anything about why some media is restricted to 2GB for any reason I would really appreciate any info....

All the best everyone,

Clint, Wales, UK.

Are you running windows 98 or windows millenium
Fat 32 has a problem with large file sizes that are not movie disks
(the maximum limit is 2GB)

If you have a really large file on a dvd that is probably why

One more thing that might help is make sure you use the dvd option in toast and not the hybrid format

This is the only sure fire solution that I know of
if you update your OS to win xp, windows 2000, or any os that can handle NTSF you should be fine
