Back in January I burned (using my Mac iBook) a CD containing all the WW1 stuff, ie; PP4, etc. I've done this in the past when I had Win98SE and had no problem with '98 using and reading files from the CD.

After finally getting my new PC with WinXP, I can't even right click on the files. So I tried copying the files over to the HD but I get a message which says the files are currupt and unreadable.

Is this problem an XP thing? or a CDROM thing? or...?
I know there aren't many people using both PC and Mac but maybe one of you knows why this might be happening and how to fix it. Otherwise I'm hooped. I'd have to d/l the stuff all over again, this time on 56k modem on my PC Shocked

Thanks for any help. Cool

cheers, Recon3

That does sound odd! You should be able to read them. It MIGHT be a CD-ROM issue tho... Does the Mac iBook still read the CD just fine?

Yup, seems to be fine on the Mac. I'll investigate the CD-ROM issue.

Yes. It seems all my 'Mac-created' CD's have this problem.

Could it be an XP 'file sharing and security' thing?

Can't you rig up a lan between your machines? Or is this too obstructed by interplatform discrepancies?

Thanks for the offer. I might ask you to do that very soon, however, I have plan.

My CD was burned on a Mac running OS9.2 but now I'm using an iBookG4 (OS10).
I'll copy the CD back onto my OS10, and burn a new cd of the stuff. ...see if THAT works.

I Google'd the problem and found issues with Mac/PC translations.
My own experience is there wasn't a problem translating OS9.2 to Win98 but evidently there IS a problem translating from OS9.2 to XP.

I'll find out later today.


cheers.

I'm having some success burning the stuff onto a new cd burned on my OSX. But some files didn't show up at all on the CD. aaaaaaahhhhh!!!

I think what I'll do is download everything fresh on my OSX from work...I have ADSL there.
Then I'll burn a fresh disk.

Hey, on your XP machine do you have for your Folder Options 'Show All Files and Folders', and uncheck 'Hide Extensions of Known File Types'?

Yup...did that, thanx.

I think somewhere down the line, my XP knows the files were touched by OX9.2.

A fresh download of all files on my OSX then burn a disk will probably fix all this

Sometimes Macs have those issues. Has something to due with them using a Base16 enconding instead of the usual Base8.

Used to use a small program called Bin2Hex and Hex2Bin just to see some Jpegs a friend of mine sent from a Mac.

Perhaps it's some setting on the CD recorder software, cause CDFS (CD File System) should be read by anykind of software, be it Mac, Windows, Linux, Unix... etc.

Moe, does Mac OS9.2 use Base8? and OSX use 16?
If that's the case, it might make sense that Base8 co-operates best with Win98, and Base16 works better with WinXP.

The CD's I burned on my OS9.2 worked with Win98(SE) but not with XP.

Today, on my MacOSX (at work using ADSL Wink ) I downloaded all the FSWW1 essentials. If this works, my theory might hold up.

I'll let you know


cheers, Recon3
