    I have narrowed it down to this: i was trying to write a zip archive onto disc, for some reason windows pc's cannot read the zip archive, although, if i unzip it and write the folder to disc, windows pc's can read it. still using the mac & pc option....
    is this normal? please help guys

    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.
