Having trouble ripping the data session of an hybrid WIN/MAC Enhanced CD

Refer to this picture to understand the CD architecture: https://i.imgur.com/SPGT32T.png

The ISO partition includes the Windows version, and the HFS partition the Mac one.

I've tried pretty much all I can think of, but nothing seems to work. Using ImgBurn, I was able to get a BIN-CUE which cannot seem to be read by anything other than IsoBuster. Using IsoBuster, I can attempt to rip only the second session, but it gives me bad sectors even though I can check the disc for read errors and it finds none. It's physically pristine. At best I managed to make an ISO that reads fine on Mac but whose Windows side is empty.

What can I do?

Do you want to reproduce the entire disc or do you just want the Mac files?
Bin/Cue files should work in Toast to burn a copy.
If you just want the Mac files I would just save as a disc image in Toast.

I want BIN/CUE that do not include the audio portion of the disc, and can be mounted on both PC and Mac.

Could you make a page and upload the ImgBurn Bin/Cue rip, please beanstalk?

It's good to get the full rip as original as possible and have the included audio tracks for preservation purposes.

We will be able to make the data only hybrid Mac/Win portion from the bin/cue and include it to that page.

p.s. I was unable to view that imgur pic that you posted. Could you upload it to our Image Hosting site too, please.

Hi Mike, thank you for your help. Would you mind doing the same with this disk image?

I'll take a look at converting it for you, beanstalk.

[Edit] - and done.
