    I no longer have a Mac for testing. Will a CD or DVD burned on a Windows system be readable on a Mac? The content is all cross platform. I just don't know for sure if the disc itself will be usable on a Macintosh computer.

    I've never had an issue with generic data files from one platform to another. I swap things all the time between Linux and Windows and most optical discs I burn are using Linux. I would imagine Mac also being Unix-like would be the same.

    no problem. our CTP department using MACs frequently burns files on to CDs for us to print in Production dept. using windows RIPs.
