Burning 10.1 Dev Tools CD

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I downloaded the 10.1 Developer Tools from Apple's site, and tried to burn the .dmg image onto a CD-R using Toast 4.12 under OS 9, however, when I put the disc into the drive the Computer told me that the disc was unreadable would I like to initialize.

Is there some trick to making this CD?

I did not mount the image if you're wondering.

Any ideas?

    I haven't tried to burn that particular image, but I suspect that the problem is that toast 4.1 doesn't recognize what the dmg file is. If your burner is supported by apple disc burning, use disk copy to burn the image. CMD+B will do it. If not, you can use toast 5 (I've used it for dmgs without a problem). HTH

    It's a SCSI CD-R so Disc Burn is a no, but I'll try Toast 5, thank you.

    After miraculously being able to download the 215+ MB file over a 56k connection (overnight), what I did was decompress the disk image so that the installer pkg, read me file and such were visible in their directory...

    ...then I popped in a CD-RW disc, named it, and dragged the dev tools directory to it and waited for it to copy. Then I clicked the CD and it asked me if I wanted to "burn the CD", I said yes, it burned, now I have the Dev Tools CD same as if Apple sent it to me.

    This was my first time burning a data CD like this so there's probably an easier way, but it seemed to work OK.

    If you want to burn it using Toast, convert the dmg file in a Toast image with the Convert Image feature in Disk Copy. Then burn the converted image with Toast.

    Hope this helps
