MIPSPro installation issues (IRIX doesn't see dist CD)

Unread postby bkd » Sun Mar 18, 2018 3:12 am

I downloaded MIPSpro All-Compiler CD (May 1999) from Archive.org and burned it to CD-R. But IRIX doesn't see anything on that CD -- unknown CD or something like that. But PROM and sash do see this CD and can list its files correctly!!! What can I do about it to help IRIX read it as it should?

PS: I try to read this disk on Fuel (internal Toshiba) and Indy (external TEAC) - but both CD-ROM drives see nothing in IRIX.

How exactly did you burn it? It'll have an EFS file system and some burning tools can mess with this. I've found (under Windows) that renaming the Archive.org images to ISO, then using CDBurnerXP in DAO+96 mode results in a CD that IRIX can read fine.

Thanks for answer! I'll try it.
Unfortunately I don't remember exactly - it was about a year ago. I think I did it with Nero without these options (RAW and so on).

you don't need the cd but only the contents. if you can read it anywhere just copy the stuff over
