Problems with Toast 6 and disk images

Hey all,

I made a Toast disc image of an audio CD, but I screwed up when burning it back to CD-R. Instead of mounting the image and using the mounted volume as the source, I used the disk image itself--that is, in the Toast 6 Copy pane, I selected the disk image, but never clicked "Mount". I just threw a blank in and burned it.

Needless to say, the disc I ended up with was less than usable. It got burned as "CD-XA" format, not standard CD Audio, and there doesn't seem to be a file structure on it either, as neither Windows nor OS X will recognize the disc. The disc seems to have the image file on it, as the size of the data on the disc seems to match the size of the image file.

Here's the catch--I've since (accidentally) deleted the original CD image file, and I don't have access to the source disc. Before I try my luck with Norton to unerase the disc image (which, of course, is unlikely to succeed), is there any way I can pull the disc image off of the malburned CD-R?

You might be ok

(correct me if i'm wrong) but CD-XA is a multitrack format, so you can burn lots of iso's ontl a CD in one go, therefore, burning one should burn ok, but i havn't had experience with CD-XA formatted discs, although it is strange that you can't use it on a macv os a PC try putting it into a standalone CD player and see if it works, you may be able to record the info back off (slow, but it works)

Putting the disc into an audi

Putting the disc into an audio CD player yields nothing. It only sees one long track, as if it were a data CD.
