For Mac OS X
Guides on emulating older applications

ISODada (pronounced "I-S-O Dada") is "a disc copying and cataloging program that I wrote to help backup the several thousand data CDs I own. I chose the .ISO format because I wanted the disc images to be readable on Mac/Windoze/Linux systems."

Copy the ISODada application to the Applications folder on your hard drive.


Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

System Requirements
Mac OSX 10.3.9 (Panther)
Mac OSX 10.4.x (Tiger)
Apple-supported drive for disc burning

Bugs & Known Issues
Program appears hung
ISODada is essentially a GUI for a number of OSX terminal commands that manipulate discs and disc images. Because of the way SuperCard works with the Terminal, there can be times when the program appears to be hung. Occasionally you may even see the Spinning Beach Ball of Death. Do not panic! It can take 10 - 20 minutes to write a DVD to a disc image.

ISODada can become confused if you are running other disc burning programs such as Toast or Apple's Disk Utility at the same time.

Discs with Illegal Names
Some discs may have names that contain characters that are not compatible with OSX's Terminal. This is not so much an issue with Windows or Linux discs, but can occasionally crop up with Mac discs.

Burn Needs Supported CDR
The disc burning feature requires that your CDR/DVDR be supported by Apple. For most users, this will be a non-issue as they will be using the drive that came with their Mac. If, however, you're using, say, a K-Hypermedia drive salvaged from a dead PC, you are out of luck.
