Using Aniplayer with CDwriter under single TOS

The following information was inadvertently omitted from the CDwriter manual and installation instructions. It will be included in the next update:

If you run single TOS and wish to use Aniplayer with CDwriter for auditioning audio files, you must install Aniplayer as an accessory. Copy ANIPLAY.PRG to the root of your boot drive, rename it to ANIPLAY.ACC, and reboot your system to activate it.

Using CD InScriptOr with CDs created under Mac OS

Using CD InScriptOr to add sessions to an ISO9660 CD created on another system is not officially supported, but is believed to work in most cases. However, if the existing session was created under Mac OS, and you attempt to merge a new session with the existing one, this process will not work properly. This is due to the presence of "associated files" on the CD, corresponding to the Mac's resource forks.

This restriction may be lifted in a future version of CD InScriptOr.
