Hi
you all guys must be laughing but ya my idiot dog chew up my mac os cd's and imovie cd. fortunately i have back up all files in my external hard drive(mac os file system). now problem is that i have files but my imac do not have burner. i have burner in my laptop but it has windows xp. so i cant use the file system so what i did- i google around and downloaded a application through which i can access HFS file system in windows xp. but i dont know how to burn them again because when ever i try to burn them - ultra ISO wont let me do & gives error and eject the CD. i spent 50$ on them and got big time stuck with it. what should i do. ill kill my dog if nothing happen.

Well what error is Ultra ISO giving you? Have you tried burning using any other program (like the built-in burner in XP)? Give us more details so we can try to help.

A dog will play with whatever is available to play with. What were your CDs doing lying around and easy to reach for the dog? Storing your data means just that: keep it in a safe place. If it was accessible to a dog, unless your dog can fly or open drawers or pick apart a bookcase or shelf, I think you didn't do what you were supposed to.

As for asking how to burn copies of your CDs, correct me if I'm wrong but if the original media is really damaged like you claim, how in the world are the copies going to be any better?

So either you take your responsibilities and buy copies off of eBay or ask somewhere else for this stuff since you obviously haven't read the forum rules:

It's true it's the TS's own responsibility to keep the CDs safe, but I understand he backed up said CDs to his external drive (obviously before they were chewed), and now he wants to burn them back. Unless this is considered illegal as well I suggest you read the post before assuming something else is going on. Also, I don't believe windows' burn tool can burn images...

Back on topic, first of all, don't kill your dog. Second, what file type are the CD images? As CArmstrong said, what error message do you get?

Well the OP did post:

If that means he backed up his install CDs, great but I'd say it's kinda cryptic: I thought he meant he made a backup of his system files. If I assumed wrong, I misunderstood: but looking at that post I'd say it was easy to make that mistake.

Anyway I'm backing out of this one.

hi to all
well all i can say is that stop fighting with each other or pointing fingers on me, rather that i appreciate if you guys help to solve the problem. is it illegal to back up your data on external drive as fas i think so it is not. i have paid for it so i have the right to copy it anywhere unless i am sharing it.

and with matter of burning the cd again - ultraiso shows thats it is HFS file system all it can do is show the files but no writing.so i downloaded the application through which i can access HFS file system in windows then i extract the file on windows system then convert folder into iso format (windows compatible) and burn it as boot able (8x) but no success, imac wont even read it.
and for the dog matter i know what a dog has do - has do. but this can even happen to you as well. no one knows the future is it mate.

Geez! How many M-F accounts do you have anyway?

And don't worry about me, I store my install disks even my cats can't reach them.

Oh I see you backed up all the files on the disk to a folder on your drive, rather than making an image of the disk. I think what I would do is use Toast on the iMac to make an ISO image, and then copy it to your laptop for burning. However, you probably dont have toast since your iMac cant burn, and Im not sure if it will work this way.
