Burning DVD ROMs for Windows?
on Jul 15, 2010 at 4:57:43 pm

Hi There,
I've searched and searched for the answer to this question - can I burn Data dvds via disk utility that are compatible with Windows? I had assumed they were but had a client who couldn't open them. I suppose I could use Toast....

Thanks!

Data DVDs should be completely compatible. Could your client not mount the DVD or just not read possibly incpmpatible files contained on it?

Thanks for the response, Chuck. I should have explained that I created these disks by first creating a disk image for each, then burned them with disk utility. I understand that if I burn the disk via the finder (which I've never done - I've always used Toast or disk utility) the mac creates a hybrid Mac/ISO 9660 disk that is compatible with windoze. Not apparently when one burns via a disk image.
