    ve downloaded some files for a friend who uses a Mac with OSX. The files
    are in .sit format. If i burn them to CD on my PC using say Nero, will he be
    able to access the files on his Mac?
    I only ask because way back in the day of 3.5" floppies it wasnt possible to
    do this due to the file system of the floppies.

    you can burn with iso 9660 format, but mac's can read dos files with no
    problem.
    pc's have a problem with mac files.
