It might work to use cdemu and then copy the virtual disc with cdrdao, but I don't know the details of how to do that.bigcheese said:I'm trying to burn a Saturn game, but these filetypes aren't mentioned in the sticky. I'm using Linux (Ubuntu). Should I use K3b? I don't know exactly how to do this.
The MDF contains the actual data stored in the data area of the CD, while the MDS contains information about the track layout and modes that are contained in the CD's Table of Contents. Generally speaking both of them are needed for a proper burn. However, burning programs can often figure out the sector format on their own and produce a working burn from the MDF alone if there is only one track (this is rare for Saturn games). DVD doesn't have "tracks" or "modes", so the MDS file is usually not needed for single-layer DVD images.bigcheese said:Well, what are the two files. Is one of them audio and one video? Or do I just need to burn one of them?
Not sure if the original poster ever figured this one out or not, but I recently found the *perfect* way to do this on a Linux system...at least it works fine for me.dibz said:ExCyber is right, your best bet is to use cdemud.
It can be rather annoying to set up initially, but once you do, you'd want to mount the image that way and use the device instead of the image file in your emulater, or re-rip it into something else from the mounted image.
I wrested with this fairly recently, none of those tools work well -- I've never ended with a working image. Don't believe you can just mount the mdf as iso format as some tutorials would have you believe either.
