Hi. I think so....I want to re-install my Apple Performa 5500 and I do not have the CDs anymore. My Mac OS 9 CD is not compatible with this machine -- I need to user the original CDs. Will you be able to send me the ISOs? I can share a folder on my Google drive and you can upload to it.

RLOL

ISO is an image file created dumping the entire contents of a CD or DVD. Depending on the operating system you are using, this can be generated using different tools. Windows, Mac OS, Linux..each one has a different way of creating it.

Another option is to copy the CDs and send it (I will pay for the costs, of course) to me.

I've made a .dmg image of the CD using a Mac.

Wow! Thank you very much.

Try to upload it to

https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0ByhVBLo68lMofjdVcnkzTmVJeWVzNGI4VlBJbWZ1bUtJc0dES0lFOFFLUi1wTVk5c0JWYWs&usp=sharing

I will see if I can burn a CD tonight.

If you know how to use Mac OS X command line (bash), you can use dd:

dd if=/dev/... of=~/Downloads/cd-Image.iso
