Hi all,
I'm looking for a free or inexpensive Windows App that will let me burn HFS discs for use on a Mac. I've been very frustrated with burning standard universal discs because all my files & folders end up truncated to 8/3 format when I go to read them on my Powerbook (can't tell what's what). Any recommendations are appreciated.

So let me get this straight, you want the PC program to make HFS partiitions that you Mac can read?

If that's the case, give TransMac (shareware) a go. There is CD burning functionality there. It supports creation of HFS and HFS+ format CDs.

MacImage (shareware) will do the same task.

Alternatively, if you don't want to spend money on a shareware product, just make an HFV volume with HFV explorer. Rename to the HFV extension to ISO and burn to disk. It works. I have done it a few time before. It doesn't support HFS+ though.

To make hybrid CDs, use Hybridator (also freeware). This will simply merge an ISO9660 file with an HFS volume (such as an HFV volume as mentioned above) to make a hybrid CD rom image.

Hope this helps.

Thanks! I will give your suggestions a try. I did find an app called MagicISO and it actually worked but is limited to 300MB, unless you pay for it.
