Basically, this System Extension enhances the way your Macintosh computer can read CD-ROMs from other platforms, mainly Windows.

Until now, if you inserted a Windows CD-ROM in your Mac, file names appeared to be crippled (in the so-called 8.3 format) or files may have been inaccessible. This Joliet extension is designed to solve these problems.

Especially, if you have CD-ROMs with the following contents you'll likely benefit from this enhancement:

MP3 songs
Files in PDF format with cross-references or indexes
Java class and/or source files
Web content with hyperlinks, such as HTML files.
DirectCD CD-Rs created and closed under Windows
Picture CDs created by some Sony digital camera
AKAI sound sampler CDs

Note: This software is only suitable for Mac OS 9.2.2 and earlier (down to System 7.5.5). It is not compatible with OS X.

In the classic Mac OS; when mounting the PC partition of a hybrid Mac/Windows CD-ROM, it's then possible to create an image from the CD containing both partitions. Creating a CD image from the mounted Mac part will create a Mac CD image only without the PC part, but creating the image using the mounted PC part, preserves both Mac and Windows parts correctly. Weird but true. The Joliet Control Panel v2.1b5 is very useful in this situation.
