    hybrid CD with SHARED CONTENT

    Hi folks-

    I'm on a MAC running OSX trying to burn a hybrid CD [WITH SHARED CONTENT] using Toast Titamium.

    I've read the FAQ over and over for stand-alone apps and I've still found some problems.

    So basically I understand I need my hybrid setup like this...

    -------
    1) My PC files are prepared as:
    (a) In root directory: autorun.inf, icon.ico, begin.exe
    (b) Once begin.exe is run, it needs to open files in /support/

    2) Using Disk Copy, I make a MAC Image containing:
    (a) begin (PROJECTOR FILE), .volumeicon.icns
    (b) Once begin is run, it needs to open files in /support/

    3) Support folder: Everything else is shared between MAC/PC.
    I understand I need to make a temporary partition to contain the shared files, but every time I try in Toast (utilities/create temp part...) it gives the following error:
    "Couldn't complete the last command because of a MAC OS error. Result code: -50"
    So what am I doing wrong? I've gone to Apple's site without success. I need this shared folder accessible on MAC/PC because the content is too large to be duplicated on both sides.
    -------

    And by the way, my autorun.inf file doesn't work. Any suggestions? It says:
    [autorun]
    start=BEGIN.EXE
    icon=ICON.ICO

    Any help is much appreciated!

    grace and peace-
    paul

    Well, I don't know anythin about MAC, but I do know some about PCs/Windows. Read The Autorun Reference Guide.
    While changing my profile, I accidentally clicked the link that said
    "Add 'Dead Rabbit' to your Ignore List"
    so now I can't talk to myself anymore...

    Thanks for the link. Since I'm on a MAC, I wasn't able to follow your tutorial. It's all helpful, though.

    As a matter of fact, I've successfully burnt the CD with shared content even though I get error messages when trying to create temporary partitions.

    At any rate. I still can't get the autostart to run on my windows machine. It's weird...the autorun.inf file actually reads the icon but it doesn't autostart. I've tried on 2 machines....wME and wXP. Any ideas?

    Could be a local machine setting. It's possible to disable Autorun on your machine. Read this thread for another user's experience and solution: http://flashkit.com/board/showthread...hreadid=385960

    You may have found this in the link posted, but your autorun.inf file should say "open" not "start":

    open=begin.exe
    icon=icon.ico

    As far as opening files from /support/... I might be wrong, but I'm assuming you are using the fscommand to try to open a file in your /support/ folder. fscommand only lets you open files from a folder you create and name /fscommand/
