Writing CDs - ISO 9660 Format
The ISO 9660 Format
The ISO 9660 format supports cross-platform CD access, making it portable for
both home and work. However, because this is a "lowest-common denominator"
type of system, it forces you to use filenames with a maximum of 8 characters,
followed by a three character extension. If your filenames do not conform to
this standard, Adaptec Toast will attempt to rename your files (results may
vary). As well, directory structures may not be more than 8 levels deep.
To burn a CD in ISO 9660 format:
- Prepare your files for archiving.
- Transfer your files to Ratbert.
- Start the "Adaptec Toast" program on Ratbert. You should see
the main title screen, divided into two sections: one for Data,
and one for the CD recorder.
- Click on the header above the Data section to pop up a Format menu.
Select "ISO 9660".
- Click on the "Data" button to display a new window. This
window displays all the data you wish to burn.
- Use the "Add" button, or drag and drop folders until you
have selected all the data you wish to write..
- Click on the Settings Button, and ensure that the
Format = "CD-ROM XA", Naming = "Joliet".
These settings are described on page 147 of the manual.
- Click "Done".
- Start the burn sequence.
This process is also nicely documented in pages 38-42 in the Adaptec
