Most likely not. To support image types we need the image specs and also the OK of the burning soft manufacturer. Moreover I doubt there are many people who need support of these image types - and as we have a lot of other work .......

What's the point of making Mac images mountable on a PC? You can't run the program under Windows, so why should they bother? I'm not being facetious, I'm quite serious. I do not understand.

Wow... This was a post over five years ago... :confused: Mincus must have very deeply dug for it. :rolleyes:

I have a bit different idea from the topic starter: To burn an image, it is not neccessary to mount the image.

Moreover, just imagine that a physical mac disc is inserted into a physical optical drive, this is not useful in Windows because Windows Explorer does not recognise the disc, it just refuses accessing the disc...Well, unless there is a translation tool (ie HFS reader) in between. Nevertheless, it is still not much useful as the files cannot be executed in Windows...Well, also, unless there is a virtual machine stays in between.

However, this use is not popular at all, if I were the developer, I should put this job as a very low priority.
