    Is it possible? :x:

    Right now, when I need to burn 70 cd's that need to be both mac and PC compatable, I insert the disk, drag the files onto it, and than it takes about 3 min to "copy" the files into some sort of buffer. Than I press burn, which takes another 5 min. Multiply this 70 times, you get the picture...

    What I would like to do, and what ive tried to do, is to use disk utility to create a disk image, which than can skip the copy stage, and go straight to burn stage.

    This would save me about 70 * 3 min = :coolugh:

    Unfortuantly, the discs created this way are only useable on a mac. Am I missing a key setting somewhere?

    Thanks...


    P.S. Before you freak out, I use 5 or 6 powerbooks to burn the 70 cd's, so it only takes 2 hours, instead of 12.
