I need to burn a CD of Images that must be able to be read by a Mac...I'm using Windows XP. Is there a certain program that must be used? I heard that if I just copy the images to a CD the Mac won't read it??????
I'm PC & Mac retarded, LOL, HELP!
Thanks ahead of time,
Sean

I won't get into the long technical explanation, but yes it is possible that a Mac might not be able to read the disk or the names of files might be mangled.

If the disk has been formatted in ISO 9660 standard then there is a solution for the Mac user to read the disk. Thomas Templemann has written an extension, both a freeware and a shareware version, that will allow the disks to be read. I have used it with success.

More information and the software can be accessed at Joliet Software

I read somewhere before that if I burn the JPEGS as if compiling a Data CD rather than in Image CD that the Mac will be able to read it. I have a Nero Burning program that will let me compile a Data CD...think that will work for the Mac to read?

Yes, that will help. Do it as a pure data disc that contains jpgs. It would be helpful if you simplified the file names as much as possible. The 8+3 format is best, but not very useful for identifying files.

Mac OSX is better about long filenames than previous versions. If the person is using OSX, unless your filenames are REALLY long, it'll be fine. However, if they aren't, you can't use more than 15 characters, IIRC, in a filename, including the four for the extension (the dot and the "jpg".)

You cannot use colons in your file names and you should not use any punctuation (including / \ | , ; : ' ) if it can be avoided other than the dot which precedes the "jpg" at the end. It should be noted that your burning software might truncate file names all by itself, for which the Mac is often blamed later. I am not familiar with Nero and couldn't say if this will be a problem.

Data CD will work.

You can copy image files as a data CD, (Easy CD Creator is very reliable), and they can be read on either platform, without anything special on either platform.

Acutally, the biggest problem in CD burning, is usually how the software is used to burn. Generally speaking, you can set it up, where you can only read it where it was created, so, it couldn't even be read on another system running XP.

Just be sure to set it up according to how you want it to be able to be read.
