MacOpener and Mac CDR's with "/" in filenames

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by The Lone Weasel, Jan 8, 2004.

  1. Before my iMac died I burned some CDRs with a slash in a few
    filenames. My new Dell with WindowsXP can't do anything with those
    filenames except reject them; I thought MacOpener would fix that, but
    aside from allowing me to look at filenames on the Mac CDR that
    contain slashes MacOpener doesn't make it possible to play or copy
    those files to my WindowsXP hard disk.

    If I could find another Mac I could copy the files to it & email to
    myself, but I don't know any Mac users in town. Is there any PC
    program that could copy these files despite the slashes?

    Thanks.

    Try an Mac emulator:

    or my personal favorite the AmigA emulator:

    (same file system nomenclature)
