Thanks very much all - Will see if mkhybrid makes a difference - Don't quite know why I didn't think to check cdrfaq. -----Original Message----- From: Ben Morrison [mailto:ben.morrison at dogstardesign.co.uk] Sent: 17 June 2003 13:55 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] surreal mac/pc website cdrom question On 17/6/03 1:47 pm, "Scott Harman" <scott at enteractiontv.com> wrote: > I find that incredibly confusing - > What gives us a major problem is making video assets available in both > hfs and iso9660 partitions of the disk. > You can use "shared assets" http://www.cdrfaq.org/faq03.html </quote> A common way to construct a disc for the Mac and PC is as a "hybrid" disc that has both an ISO-9660 filesystem and an HFS filesystem. To save space, the data itself is shared by both sections of the disc. This is possible because the ISO-9660 directory entries use an absolute block offset on the disc, so they can point at data residing in the HFS filesystem. There are various applications that will do HFS/ISO-9660 hybrids. Roxio's Toast for the Mac and "mkhybrid" for the PC are two examples. <quote> benjer -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ Evolt.org conference in London, July 25-27 2003.
