throw it into my window.
those files you mentioned are part of the structure and keeps info in those files that pertain to the content of the disc. have you tried burning a disc using disk utility instead of toast? or try deleting toasts preferences?

how do you delete toasts preferences?? burning a cd with disc utility is a bit of a mission, toast is just so much easier.

As a test to be sure that Zips made on OSX will open on Windows, I zipped up install files on Panther and network copied it to XP. Unzipped just fine. So it's not a problem with OSX's Zip utility.
