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
What's new in this version:
- improved support for non-roman languages when the new HFS+ API option is enabled.
