    How would one go about backing up Macintosh CD's (Panther, Adobe CS, Office v.X and 2004) on a PC? All I get is a message saying the disc is not formatted for Windows. I don't think work wants me to reformat Mac discs, so how to I get the discs to appear after I insert them?

    I am using Roxio EZCDCreator on this Dell piece of crap. I would use my mac, but I have six discs to do and one takes awhile on my G3 iBook. I shouldn't have to reformat, should I? If someone could link me to a step-by-step or just give me some good instructions I would appreciate it, thanks!

    PS: I AM NOT STEALING THIS SOFTWARE. Just making backup copies for my job.

    First of all, you can't reformat a CD. Don't even try - it won't work because the disc isn't writable. Secondly, you'll need a software program like MacDrive to enable your PC to read and use Mac disks before it'll work.

    I thought the Panther Disks were DVDs. Could be wrong.

    My Panther install is on CD.

    Anywho, are you trying to use the disc copy feature of Roxio (does it have one???)?

    I use RecordNow from Sonic and do a Disc copy with my Mac discs and it just does a bitwise copy to the new disc, never asks me to format.

    Have you tried Nero or Burn at Once [free] ?

    Good luck.
