    You need to burn your DVDs using the standard Joliet format and close the session in order for them to be read on a PC or any other computer.

    That's not what you stated in your original message. But the same advice holds true. Use the standard Joliet method of burning, close the session, and your DVDs will be able to be read on an iMac, MBP, PC, or Linux computer.

    PC software to read the Mac file system has nothing whatsoever to do with DVD burning. If you don't know how to burn a disk in OS X, then use the "Burn" program suggested by louishen.

    Regards.
