    Is there a way of viewing a cd-rom meant for windows in OS X?

    I am able to access all the files within the cd, but not 'play' it.
    Is there any applications that can assist me in seeing what's on it?

    Many thanks,
    M

    This is why it is a Windows CD and not a Mac CD. Really nothing you can do about it other than get a PC.

    Are you looking for something (media of some sort) or just want to run the thing?

    Thanks for getting back to me. This is the only draw back of having a mac only studio!

    I need to identify first, and then take some images and text from the presentation for a client. Unfortunately there are literally hundreds of CAD drawings, so to open them one by one is a bit of a nightmare!

    You can try VirtualPC, it might work in that application...

    Virtual PC most likely will work. But beware, it will be slooooooooowww.

    Heh, probably. The last time I used it was with my performa 6200 back in the mid 90s. I have no idea how it runs these days.
