    I have 4 DVDs that were burnt using Windows XP - and they worked great until I sold that computer and got a Mac instead. They are full with hundreds of simpsons episodes...

    But they don't read on my mac!

    Does anyone know how i can read Windows CDs on a mac without using Virutal PC?

    The filesystem is UDF 2.0, but Panther only supports up to version 1.5.

    thanks

    If I understand correctly, you burned all those Simpsons episodes as data on the DVD. Well, it would seem that you can use Linux to read your files if you don't have Windows. Next time, create a video DVD. That way, you can play your cartoons on any DVD player and most personal computers with DVD drives.

    I would say your best bet for now is try to get access to a PC and reburn your DVDs in a format supported on Panther. A bit of a pain, but not that bad for 4 discs.
