I have a CD ROM with a bunch of jpgs on it. I can open them on a Mac but i can't access them at all on my PC. i get a pop up that says "the device isn't ready" on my PC (although i can view other CD ROM's so i know my PC isn't broken)
i know that each platform needs to sofware specifically for that platform but i thought that jpgs were cross platform and i would be able to burn to CD and view regardless of platform that they would be opened on?
Is there any other format that i could burn images on CD ROM so that they can be viewed on both platforms with the one CD or would i need to make a copy for each platform?
My last experience was that if the CD is burned for Macs - even though .jpg's are cross platform - your PC CD hardware will not recognize a Macintosh formatted CD to see all those lovely little cross-platform .jpg's... or anything else, for that matter. Macs can read PC or Mac formatted CD's. Hardly seems fair, does it?
There's probably some updated hardware that will, though. This was awhile back that I experienced it. I'm due for a new CD writer/burner, anyway.
karakas, are you saying that burning using so9660 means that Linux can read the jpgs too? i am on PC, my client is on Mac and my tech lead is on Linux...would be great if we could all actually communicate:-)
