CloneCD For Mac OS XNov 22 2005
If you find yourself with a Clone CD set of files (.CCD, .CUE, .IMG & .SUB), and you're using OSX, you'll probably realise quickly that you can't burn these files. This is because CloneCD is unfortunately only available for Windows.
Luckily, there is still a way around this. Here's the steps I had to follow:
- Download Firestarter FX. You can also use any program that can burn .BIN/.CUE files
- Install Firestarter. For me, this wasn't so straightforward. StuffIt crashed when I tried to open the ZIP file, so I had to unzip it from the command line. If the ZIP file is on the Desktop, just open Terminal and type "
cd Desktop" and then "
unzip FireStarter*.zip". This created a folder on the desktop containing the program.
- Rename your .IMG file to .BIN. This is the hack: CloneCD .IMG files are really normal .BIN files in disguise. It's just the file extension that confuses cd burning programs. By renaming, Firestarter will be able to open it.
- Open Firestarter, drag the .BIN and .CUE files onto the Firestarter window, and burn.
That's it! Now you should have a perfect burnt CD without having to copy the files over to a Windows computer!
