CD Extra: making CDROM part Mac+Win readable




I am preparing a CD Extra… i.e. a CD with audio and CDROM parts…

How do I make the CDROM part compatible for both Mac and Windows? I work on a Windows machine so I presume Mac users wouldn’t see the files in my usual/normal CDRoms cause of file system differences.

Any help would be very much appreciated.



CD Extra is a part of the Blue Book Standard and it is fully supported on OS X. Both parts of the disc will be automatically accessible for OS X users. (Actually I find that the way they implement this on OS X a lot more elegan than what windows does.)

The only thing to do is to make sure you don’t fill the data part with Windows Media files or any other platform-specific formats.
