What's wrong with using a version of the application that created it ?

Either Toast 5 Titanium, or Toast 4 Deluxe ???

As bertyboy says or rename .toast to .ati and use Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility to mount the image. More hustle than using Toast but it´s an alternative. Wink

as bertyboy says; Toast 4 and 5 up to 5.0.1 and the Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility will run under OS 8.6
You´ll find them here too Wink

Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility

BTW, you don't have to change the extension to .ati, you can leave it alone and it will work just fine. I've used this program on something as early as a PowerBook 500 running Mac OS 7.1.1, and as late as my G3 iMac running OS 9.2.2, without any problems. Occasionally it will refuse to mount an image due to a memory restriction, but that may just mean that its own memory settings need to be changed.

Edit: Replaced 'xxx 7' by 'Mac OS 7' - IIGS User
