    I am trying to run mechwarrior 2 with sheepshaver. I can't have the mechwarrior cd and the Mac Os 8.5 disk in the computer at the same time. I am trying to save one of the disks as a disk image.

    I tried saving the mechwarrior 2 disk as a disk image but it always saves it as an audio cd.

    I try to saving the Mac OS 8.5 disk as a disk image but for some reason sheepshaver will not run with the disk image. It just sits with there with the grey window.

    When the cd's are mounted they have cdrw on them. I don't remember seeing that before on other disk images.

    I've done this sort of thing before. What you have to do to make it work is this:
    • Give the disk image all the properties of a real CD, i.e. read-only, not compressed.
    • Make sure the disk image, when mounted, has the same name as the folder or disk you're making it from.
    • NEVER mount the disk image and the real disc at the same time.
    Also, make sure you mount both disk images before trying to run SheepShaver, and tell it where to find what it needs.
