    hi guys, could use a little help here.

    my PC is having some problem reading some CDs. i suspect its because the CDs are dual-encoded for mac and pc.

    any suggestions? i tried googling; nada :( 

    thx, KA

    What are the disks? A hybrid cd that works both mac and pc. Is usually partioned with one section being HFS+ and the being isso 9660, UFS, or fat. So you should be able to read the pc partion just not he mac. So the probelm is not likly an issue with the CDs.

    Which means I would look at updating your CD drivers.

    We bought a program at work called MacDrive to open mac formatted disks. It works great.

    It's possible the disks are bad copies too. I've seen that more than once.

    What's on them, and how many are there?

    Perhaps it's your CD Drive.
    Try the disc on another computer and see if it works.

    What's on the disc.
    It's p0rn, isn't it.
