Folks,

I'm on a Mac using Roxio Toast 5.0.1.
How can I create a CD with roms and an emulator,
to play on my DC box .
In other words, what's the process?
I already have an ISO burned CD that reads "DSNES".
I figure I can use the emulator from that.

When I open the ISO, there appears to be 4 folders:
GFX, LOCALE, ROMS, and SOUND.

Along with the folders, there are 2 files:
1DSNES.SH4, and IP.BIN.

If you're familiar with my situation,
please explain the process(to a thick
headed newbie), or point me to
a site that might do the same.

Thanx in advance for your help,

Sincerely,

M1tch

I've got a text file that explains the entire process, that I printed
out a long while back, but sadly don't have the actual file anymore.

The file Bel mentioned should be called something like "MdT (1.2).rtf";
at least, that's the one I have. A Google search doesn't turn it up. The
FAQs at the first link should help you, tho.
"Mac Dream Tool" is the program you are looking for.

is the place to get the .sbi files you need to use it.

The SBI version of that is at Sbiffy; specifically at
http://consolevision.com/members/sbiffy/browse/browse.c...
You'll end up burning the ROMs onto the same disc. I think we've
provided the right info for burning SBIs in OSX.
