Toast a Mac CD-R from a NT server
Posted on 1997-11-12
Hi, Here is my problem
I have a PM7100 connected with a NT 4.0 server. the NT server use NTFS so that Mac can use it as a file server.
Recently I tried to back up some files from the NT server, I attached a Sony 926S CD-R drive to my PM7100 and use Toast 3.5.2 software, since Toast can't use a server as a Volume, so I choose Folders and Files format to do the backup.
OK, I draged some folders from NT server to Toast and start
to backup, when the total capacity is less then about 400MB, I have no any problem to burn the CD, but when the total capacity is more then 400MB, although there ain't ANY error message during the write/verify process just like before, the CD doesn't show on the desktop when finish burning. In Toast's "Get Disk Info" It does show there are data in the CD, but the CD just can be indentified by CD-ROM drive or CD-R drive. It's so mysertious for me...
I'd heard about using the Folders and Files format would results in limied capacity less the CD-R's default capacity, but 400MB when to far..
Any suggest would be welcome.
Note: Again, there is not ANY error message during write/verify process and I did try for times, I wonder if it's a problem of the software(Toast, Open Transport, apple talk) or the hardware(CD-R drive).
