_ Using a PC CDRW for Mac files

Hi. I'm using an iMac DV SE with a Windows 98 PC. I have an IDE CDRW on my PC. I also have a network that actually let my files been shared between the two computers.

But I have a question. Each time I want to burn some Mac files, I have to compressed it first with Stuffit. But if I have MacOpener on my PC, will I be able to burn Mac files just like that ?

Or if not, will I be able to burn Mac HFS stuff in a certain way ?

I know only of one burn software wich support's hybrid(Mac) CD's directly and that is NERO BURNING ROM.
There is one catch though, you will need to have a Scsi partition containing mac HFS and the files you want to burn. The partition must be directly conected to the PC in that case. Hopes this helps

The filesystem on a CD-RW is called UFS and is NOT operating system dependent. So any platform that reads UFS can read a CD-RW.  The files themselves, however, are another story.  Stuffit is a compression format that is mainly in the MAC world but there are Stuffit compatible utilities for the PC.  ZIP is the defacto standard for PCs but also there are ZIP compatible utilities for the MAC.

Choose whichever one fits your needs best.

Like i stated before use Nero to burn from a UFS partition in your win9x machine (that works like a charm)

yeah but the CD won't contain the exact file hierarchy.

Why not? it burn's a 1:1 image of the HFS partition

thanx, i've found out how to burn a "perfect" MAC files CD.

All I have to do is use Macintosh Toast. Within the application, I put everything I want to burn in the app. The, I choose "Create image".

I send this image to the PC's CDCreator, I use "Create CD from image". Then the CD will be created !!!

It works !

But i'll give you the points anyway, UFS seems pretty cool too.
