How Mac 11fx 650mb HD dump to CD? Answered

I would like to power up an old workhorse and dump the SCSI to a CD. Mac 11fx runing System 7.5 to a CD so I can view the files and print or use as portfolio materials. Do not have a CD burner for this old Mac so am thinking of using Windows machine with SCSI PCI card to burn. Any network suggestions or file format interchange ideas would be appreciated.

linux supports a lot of file systems - way more than windows. i think it can read the mac drive you can use a live cd to run linux temporarily on a windows computer if the drive is supported in either windows or linux you can use My Computer or whatever else to see and copy the contents of the drive

Thanks for your suggestion. Had some success already using a Windows machine running Linux and Mac OS Tiger. Was able to lift files but now trying to use MacDrive software on XP machine to read the files. Many are Persuasion files and other graphics formats done using Mac system 7.5 many years ago. Love this site and people like yourself. Many thanks, the Farmerboy

do you really need special software ? if you copy the files to a fat32 or ntfs drive you can access them with just windows common applications (openoffice photoshop etc) probably can open the files you have
