O.K.

I am trying to figure this one out. I have a disk image that was burned onto a disk as a toast image. Grr. Well it would be nice if I had a Mac around here, I don't. Is there a way to get this image burnt using Windows? Or am looking at trying to get it re-burnt in a format that is wintel friendly?

My first try would be to see if toast is saving things in ISO format.

Try renaming it to .iso, and using your PC software to burn that to a disk

[edit]
If that doesn't work, grab a trial copy of ultra ISO. It's a PC based program that claims to be able to read and modify all manner of disk image files.

Sorry...

Roxio's Toast default is .img... which is not iso. there is a chance that Roxio's EZ CD Creator pro might open it... it's worth a shot.

Roxio Toast on the Mac supports a big raft of formats

Obviously most Mac users with savvy use either ISO or hybrid formats and current versions offer Mac+PC extended hybrid as the default (AFIK, mine does anyhow). Older versions tended to default to Mac HFS(+) but also offered ISO etc.

.img or .dmg are more likely straight from Apple's Disk Utility and were not intended for cross platform use (might work in some BSD based OS's - couldn't say...

If you are really stuck post me and I will if necessary contact you regards taking your files and making it into something more cross platform before sending back (subscription broadband probably required... I have....)

Thanks Seranak,

Fortunately we have a site here at my district that is picking up a new Power Mac. So I will do some wheeling and dealing with them when it gets in. Should only be about a week. I can wait that long since the file is huge (500MB) and I don't have a way to send that one out.

I was just hoping that something could pick up that format in wintel. Or hey Linux is fine, too.

Is there a Linux package that could do it?

Oh, I would love to help you with your BSD problem, except I am still having troubles getting that one to work. Just enough difference between Linux and BSD to confuse me.
