    Hey All --

    Recent switcher. I'm using Toast to burn discs. I was able to use the Mac/PC option to burn a disc that worked on a PC perfectly. Today, I've tried three seperate discs, and they burn perfectly and show up perfectly on my Mac -- but don't even mount on a PC, they are basically invisible.

    If I do a get-info on the disc is says it's formated for Mac OS Extended

    I'm assuming this is the problem, but I'm using the Mac/Pc option in Toast. IS there a setting somewhere that got turned on that is causing this?

    It's making me crazy and I'm burning through so many discs experimenting.

    Thanks SO MUCH for any help!

    If Toast isn't respecting the Mac/PC setting, try either re-installing or delete Toast's preferences (your-user/library/preferences/roxio toast prefs) and try again.

    You could also try burning from the Finder. That by default makes universally compatible discs.

    Take a screenshot of your settings when you burn, I suspect you have the wrong settings.

    Thanks for your response. I believe the problem was with the PC's dvd drive. I tested on another PC and the discs was really strange, I hope that was the problem. :)

    thanks a bunch - MD
