    I have a CD which has software on it in 3 versions (windows, mac and linux) - so it says. Now when i put the CD into windows it runs the windows setup and the linux setup also runs when I put it into linux. I dont have Mac OS X yet so cant test to see if it will work for mac. But is there a way I can open the CD in windows and see the mac files?

    (Its a CD of Maple I bought from my university).

    Also - similar qusetion. I would like to do the same with a .bin CD image that I have on my PC - open it up and see if theres a mac installation in it.

    I can't answer the second question, but for the first one, if you explore the CD in Windows Explorer, you should find the files. they may not be recognized as valid file formats by Windows, though (obviously)

    Its ok now - got it sorted. Found an application called TransMac and downloaded the trial. CD had a mac installation on it but its not visible under windows.

    There is another way: MacDrive. If you have MacDrive installed, there will be an option to view Mac files or Windows files. Hope this helps! :-D
