anamorphis Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
Hi everyone,
I just recorded my new DJ set, and I would like to share it over my website. But this time I would like to share it, not only in MP3 format, but also as an actual CD, that people could download and burn as if it were an original.
I have one burned copy, all nicelly tracked and all that, and I tryed to create an image with Disk Utility, which doesn't seem to work at all.
Also, I want to share that CD image, both for Mac and PC, so how do I do that? Because probably I'll need different formats for different platforms, right? Am I confusing stuff here?
Can any of your bright minds guide me on this one?

Thanks a lot.

    Maybe LiquidCD could be your solution, because its Freeware. (If you don´t own Toast)

    Simply insert the media to be copied, then choose "Copy a CD" in the "Copies" panel. Now choose "save as cue/bin image" in the "disc" menu.

    You can find LiquidCD here:

    Anamorphis,
    You are confusing me for one. Insert your CD, start disk utility. Select the CD's name in the left panel list. Choose File>New>Disk Image from <disk name>.
    Choose "read-only" for your audio CD and "DVD/CD master."
    This image will make a CD that is read by all players. That's the SOP for bulk sharing CD's.
    As to uploading an image to a web site for people to burn, maybe a compressed file would help with bandwidth and download time but I doubt it would work for PC's.
    Just my best guess on the PC compatibility.
    Good luck, dhort

    dhort,
    You are confusing me as well.
    What do you think a PC-user could do with a .CDR-image in HFS+ format?
    And what a Macuser should do with this file too?

    I think anamorphis wanted to offer a format what can be used to burn it directly as Audio-CD;
    PC-user could burn bin/cue-files for example with Nero directly as Audio-CDs.
    For Macusers are also a lot of applications like Toast or maybe LiquidCD for burning this image as Audio-CD.

    Sure, as Macuser you could copy the Audio-files from .CDR-image into iTunes or burn-apps, but thats not the smart way.

    Yes Nightmell! That's exactly it, and LiquidCD seems to do the job just fine. I tryed it a few minutes ago and now I have a perfect CD image to share with everyone (Mac or Pc).

    Thank you so much.

    Well, I did confess to being confused. I was pretty certain a PC user would have no use for such a file. A standard disk image of an audio CD is of no use to a Mac user why? I guess I'm out of my depth but it seems that you knew what Anamorpis needed and that's what counts. NRN
    Good work, dhort
