    I have a hybrid CD-ROM. When I put it to a PC, I can read the ISO 9660 (Windows) portion. When I put it to my Mac, I can read the HFS (Mac) portion.

    This seems logical. However, I want to read the PC portion of the hybrid CD on my Mac now. Is there a way to do so?

    Thank you.

    Best Regards,

    You sure it doesnt mount? I have a couple Hybrid discs myself, and when I put the CD in, both the Mac and PC version's mount...

    Only the Mac version is mounted. This is logical because the Mac portion contains the Mac binary, while the PC portion contains the PC binary.

    However, I would like to read the PC portion on my Mac as well occasionally. How could that be done?

    Generally, Mac's can read PC (windows) cd's...

    If you are making the hybrid disk yourself, then try using a different app to burn the disc, because the mac should definitely be able to read the windows section.

    If you've just been given the CD, then sorry I cant help :eek:

    Have you tried to access the hybrid cd from VirtualPC?

    or perhaps using the disk utility you could select the PC section...

    Good luck!
