@RogerWilco: Thanks for the replacement CD image. It looks good now.

How would you recommend that I go about imaging both partitions? It only mounted the Mac partition in OS 9.

Hi, if you have a Windows PC its super easy by using ImgBurn to make the iso image. ImgBurn makes great rips of Mac and hybrid CD's. Just click the "Create image file from disc" button in ImgBurn and follow the prompts.

If you do want to create good hybrid Mac/Win .iso's on Mac OS 9, the simplest way to get good results is to use Joliet Volume Access in combination with The Virtual CD/DVD-ROM Utility

Download and install DL #2 ("JVA_2.1b5.sit") of the Joliet Volume Access, if you haven't installed it before.
Same for DL #3 ("virtual-cd-dvd-ute-10d3.sit ") of the Virtual CD/DVD Utility.

Mount the Epson Stylus CD on the Mac. Go to the Control Panels and open the "Joliet Control" control panel. You should see the name of the mounted CD in it's window. Click the name of the CD to hi-light it, then click the "Sessions..." button. Another window pops up and has the name of the unmounted Windows part of the CD in it. Click that name and then the "Mount" button. The CD's icon on the desktop should now show the word "Joliet" on it plus the name of the CD under that.

Quit the Joliet Control windows and start up the Virtual CD/DVD Utility. Click the "Save Image..." button. Select the mounted Windows CD in the Utility's dialog window and and choose somewhere in your HD to save the new .iso image. Allow it to save the CD to .iso and then quit the utility. The resulting .iso should be double-clickable to mount and you should see both partitions mount onto the desktop.

It seems kind of weird having to save the Windows partition to .iso like this on Mac OS 9, but this is what saves both partitions.

Ok, thank you! I'll re-image that and upload it as soon as possible. How would you recommend that I go about imaging both partitions? It only mounted the Mac partition in OS 9.

testing for compatibility would be greatly appreciated.

The Epson drivers for the scanner, require Mac OS 8.1 or later and a Mac with a USB port (info is in the ReadMe inside of Disc 1 of the Drivers folder). The CD is from Jan, 2000.

The bundled software can run on much earlier Mac OS's, PhotoDeluxe 2 for example can run on 68040 & PPC Macs running System Software 7.1 or later.

One issue with your upload is that you have imaged the Mac part only, of what should be a hybrid Mac/Windows CD, so it appears to be incomplete.
