Problems with recording audio tracks from multiple albums on one CD
Posted on 1997-08-06
Where I work, there is a PowerMac with a CD-recorder running TOAST 3. This works fine, but when I want to "drag-and-drop" audio tracks it complains a lot. I understand this has something to do with the MacOS and that I should extract the audiotrack into an "AIFF"-file. The problem is, we have no such program. I found one on the internet called CD-to-AIFF and downloaded it but can't extract the compressed file. You see, I own a PC (don't stop reading now) and I'm used to Pkunzip so I have absolutely no idea how to extract a HQX file. Which program should I use??? (There seem to be none of that kind installed on the Mac). I've tried to use quicktime to extract the audio files but it refused to save them on the HD.
Another question: I downloaded the file on my PC and brought it to the Mac on a floppy disk. Then, when I put the disk in the Mac (which is supposed to be able to read PC-formatted disks) I ended up with some weird folders and files on the disk. Must I write-protect the disk before I put it in?
Since I've never used a Mac before, I turn to you for help.
