What does ISO 9660 mean?


It is an international standard describing the file structure for computer files on compact disc. You should use this standard when sharing files on a CD between two different operating systems, Mac and Windows for example. File names are can be up to 8 characters long plus the 3 character extension (example - bobslist.doc). Most recording software should allow you to change the file system from Joliet to ISO 9660 (PC) or HFS to ISO 9660 (Mac).
