Firstly, this is going to require someome that really knows their stuff, and I’m excited to see who arrives at the solution and how. I’ve tried seemingly everything to no avail.
Okay, so I’ve got a piece of software that boots into both Windows and OS X that I have a .iso image of. After upgrading my system to XP64 my keyboard (instrument) no longer has drivers so I need to run this music recording software on my Mac. This is where the backup comes in, and theoretically saves the day as my actual CD got damaged in a move.
The burning size of the image is 774mb, and doesn’t fit on a regular CD. Burning it to a DVD via the iso results in a blank disk when viewed from either platform.
The CD boots into either platform but neither platform can see the others data when the CD is loaded.
The .iso image isn’t mountable by OSX. I used terminal to convert it to a .dmg which also resulted in errors.
WinISO Sees the OS X data but proclaims it doesn’t operate on such data.
UltraISO doesn’t see it (the apple side) at all.
ISOMagic doesn’t see it (the apple side) at all.
ISOBuster - Sees all of the “tracks” and will show all of the data contained within but has no method for removing data from the ISO. By removing I mean deleting not extracting. Extracting doesn’t work, I’ve tried this method and while it works as it should it doesn’t work when taken to the crapple.
I have tried so many ways to trick the apple or the programs to burn a working copy of this CD that the Mac can read and can’t for the life of me get it to work. The only thing that may be holding me back largely is that I don’t have toast or anything on the mac…perhaps one of those programs would be able to manipulate this image to be usable.
What I would like to do is actually remove some of the data from the PC side of the disk, namely the .exe installer to free up enough room to fit it on a regular CD and in doing so allow the Mac to read it. With each of the programs I’ve tried, when I remove the .exe and save the .iso it saves it based on the PC data only and loses all of the mac data.
Has anyone a solution to this problem? If not perphaps the makers - propellerheads will supply me with a replacement CD, I just don’t want to wait if I don’t have to.
