    I have a very old Mac: 6200 Performa Power PC running 7.5.3

    I've burnt some photos to a CD using a Vista PC and the CD image doesn't mount on the desktop. I've run SCSI probe which can 'see' the CD but wont mount it.

    Is there anything I can do either end to see the CD?

    Thanks for any help.

    Did you use ISO 9660 when burning the CD? That should work for images. I used to do this using Toast on an old Power Mac.

    I used the 'mastered' option in Vista.

    The Toast website implies it is for burning CDs on a Mac. I'm burning the CD on a PC running Vista which I then want to see on an old Mac.

    Sorry if I've got that confused somewhere.

    I've downloaded "Express Burn". It had an option "ISO+Joliet". The burnt CD didn't work in the old Mac.
