What kind of connection to the internet do you have? If you have ethernet then you could just connect your mac up, use I.E. or Mozilla or that and you can connect. I've experienced problems downloading software and burning it so you're not alone. What kind of Mac is it?

Windows doesn't recognize the resource fork of Mac OS files.
Downloading and expanding the file directly on the Mac should
solve your problem. Otherwise, be careful that the file is not
automatically expanded before transferring it to the Mac.

Hope this helps,

At first, it's true that better download Mac soft, using Mac. At second, it's true that expanding Mac soft on Win will cause loss of resources (which are in use even on OS X). But...

I believe that the problem is Mac cannot understand the format of your CD. Did you burn it as ISO9660? Or as DLA disk (CD-as-diskette)? If the former, or you just used XP built-in CDRW support, then it's weird, because this way always worked for me (though, not sure if on OS 9 or OS X). Do you have ISO9660 extension installed? If the latter (DLA or CD-ad-diskette) then you're likely out of luck - OS 9 will almost certainly need a driver.

Also, be sure to download file in resource-less format. Like from Apple's site you get .bin, which has to be expanded by Stuffit Expander *after* you get the file on Mac. Also, if you use a standalone app on Win to burn, make sure that ISO9660 is chosen *without* any extras (rename the file if name is too long).

Good luck!
