That's funny. <br><br>I'll start the questions.<br>Burned accounting app from dmg to a dvd-rw disk. However, "cannot open file" shows up when I go to use it. Using it on the same computer. Any ideas?<br><br>

I wish I could figure out how to use r/w disks. I used three disks this week with just a couple files each to get something on an old iMac Bondi not on the internet.<br><br><br>What I mean is I'd like to write a couple of small files and remove the cd. Then put the cd back in and burn a couple more files to the same cd and on and on with the same R/W cd.<br><br><br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by KateSorensen on 12/10/07 07:07 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

Re: Mod -- Admin - 12/10/07 03:26 PM

I ended up using a plain old cd and everything worked fine. Some of those r/w are temperamental little bu**ers.<br><br>Good suggestion on the forum name change btw.<br><br>

Re: Mod -- Admin - 12/10/07 05:48 PM

Toast will burn multi-session CDs and DVDs. You don't need rw disks for that unless you want to erase and use them again for something else. Rewritable simply means that you can burn it and then erase and burn it again. That's not an endless cycle, though. There is a limit to the number of burn/erase cycles before the media becomes unreliable.<br><br>

I do this all the time. It works like a charm.<br><br><br>For Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.2.8<br><br>To create a multi-session CD, use the Disk Copy utility to create a disk image file from which the CD is burned. Follow these steps:<br><br> 1. Drag the item or items you wish to burn into a folder.<br> 2. Open Disk Copy (/Applications/Utilities/).<br> 3. Drag the folder onto the Disk Copy window. The Image Folder dialog appears.<br> 4. Choose a location for the image file using the Where pop-up menu. For simplicity, you may choose Desktop.<br> 5. Click Save. Wait for the image to be finished.<br> 6. Select Burn Image from the File menu. The image file should not be mounted.<br> 7. In the navigation dialog that appears, select the image you just created, then click Burn. If you have not already inserted a blank disc, you will be prompted to do so now.<br> 8. In the Burn Disc window, click the disclosure triangle.<br> 9. Select the checkbox for "Allow additional burns".<br><br><br>A disc burned with this setting will remain open to subsequent multi-session burns.<br><br>Additional burns on same disc<br><br>When performing additional burns on the multi-session disc, simply repeat Steps 1 to 7. The "Allow additional burns" setting selected in Steps 8 and 9 should automatically be retained for that disc on subsequent burns. Each new burn session on the disc will appear in the Finder as a separate disk, and it will have the name of the disk image file from which you burned it.<br><br><br>

Okay. I'll give that a try. I didn't really understand what r/w meant, I guess.<br><br><br>tuvm<br><br><br><br>
