View Full Version : Burn CD with sound files and "data files"

Aug 5, 2005, 09:51 AM
I was wondering how I could burn a CD that both has, for example, and album of sound files, but then also includes the AAC files for those songs.

I know this technology must exist somewhere. It has to work similarly to, for example, the new Garbage CD which has the album, and then also a video.

It does not look like iTunes can do this, but I'm not sure. Can Toast do this? I was thinking about buying Toast, and this might tip the scale.

Toast will do this in two ways - either the data will be stored inside an audio track, which makes it compatible with older CD drives, or the data will be stored in a separate session. iTunes will not do this.

You'll find that Toast will do a lot of things that OS X's built in burning capabilities will not.

I'm shooting from the hip here, I don't have my mac to try it out on....but!

Can you make two .dmg files? One to burn like a regular CD, but then you also drop the data file .dmg on there too? For instance, if you put in an Enhanced Audio CD, 2 discs actually mount on your drive, one is labeled as the music, the other is the extra features....

Maybe you do it with 2 partitions....

I can't remember! I think it would be the same as making a Hybrid CD-ROM to run on both Windows and Mac platforms.......

And yes, Toast does all this.
