Developer's Description

Unix CD/DVD burning software, uses cdrtools

This is a a package of X-CD-Roast for MacOS 10.3 (Panther).

You might ask why one might want to use that? Apple shipped Jaguar with diskburner to create data-CDs and itunes to create audio-CDs...

Well - it's cool to have some UNIX burning software running on your mac and X-CD-Roast uses the cdrtools as burn-engine. Its completely independant of the Apple provided CD-burning drivers. So it's very possible that X-CD-Roast works just fine with a writer that is not supported by MacOS. Also X-CD-Roast has a lot of interesting options - like overburning support, creating real unix/joliet CDs, multisession, CD-Text, high quality audio-extraction of most even copy protected audio-CDs, DVD writing without special software and more...

Please keep in mind that this is software that has grown over 6 years. It's not at all apple like. It might be confusing at first, so please read the popup-help on each button. (Hover your mouse a few seconds over an item to get help.)

There is a HTML-Manual available.

Please use at own risk - I took great care in making sure that that package won't cause any trouble with your system, but please be warned.

I am always interested in feedback. Please don't hesitate to mail me when you have questions.
