    I need to make a full copy of a two-partition CD containing Windows and Mac formatted files. Any advice?

    I suspect you need special software to do that...perhaps Toast. As an alternative, maybe you don't need both partitions to be on the same disk. Burn a Windows disc and a separate Mac disc.

    You don't need special software. Just burn the files to disk. Put them in folders or however you'd like to identify them then click burn.

    When I insert the CD using iMac, it only shows the Mac files. The question is how to access the partition that contains the Windows files using the iMac, other than using PC. I don't have PC nor use PC on iMac.

    Try Simply Burns (free), and use 1 to 1 copy.

    The problem is not the software but the inaccessibility of the source files (Windows partition of the CD) on the iMac.

    With 1 to 1 copy, it shouldn't matter. Have you tried it?

    If the files on the windows partition are inaccessible on your Mac, maybe there's a reason!
    (The files could be .exe files, and not usable on OS X, even if you could see them)

    I have tried 1:1 copy using Simply Burns and it only copies session 1 (Mac files).
    I am not going to use the PC files but to save a full copy of the CD. Are there any software could do that ( copy the all sessions)?

    Sorry about that. I had hoped that Simply Burns would ignore flags, and just copy the thing.

    Try Burn (free), using data copy, advanced MAC + PC setting.

    I have tried Burn and Liquid CD, same thing. I would say that it is not a software but a hardware (CD) problem. Thanks everyone for the help!
