How do I create discs for other operating systems?

How do I create discs for other operating systems?

The process for setting up the software is simple. Using Easy CD Creator, click File on the menu, select CD Project Properties, then select ISO 9660 from the drop-down menu. This will set the software to burn the CD in the most universal format available. Even with the disc burned properly, there are some things to keep in mind:

  • The naming structure of any files you will be burning must meet the 8.3-character naming convention set forth in DOS. Additionally, if you select an option other than MS-DOS 8.3-character naming, the software will allow you to use more types of characters (*&%$#), but this will make the CD less likely to be readable on another operating system.

  • Remember that, even though you can create a disc that another system can read, the code within the files may not make sense to a given operating system. For example, if you create a CD for a Macintosh computer containing a program written for Windows, the Mac's CD-ROM drive will be able to see it, but the Mac will not be able to run the program.
