how to open a .cdr file?

Postby brovash » Fri Oct 03, 2008 10:01 pm

I downloaded snow leopard, and when I unrar'd it, it produced a ~7 GB .cdr file. Anyone have any idea what the heck I do with this???? I'm so confused lol :(

A simple google search says .cdr files are Corel Vector Graphic Drawing files.

It could be a joke (open it, could be a 7gb middle finger or something!)

other then that, i have no idea

It's a DVD image similar to .ISO but for mac DVD burning software.

You need to burn the image to a DVD - do NOT create a data disc and simply drop the .cdr file in, you need to use your burning software's image burning mode.

Next time, try http://filext.com/ . Its a great site to go to if you ever run across an extension that you don't know, or need to use a particular file and don't know how.

Isn't CDR a Slysoft CDRWin image file? That would be MY first guess. Or was it Goldenhawk?

EDIT, actually... cdr, the file extension of a certain kind of disk image created by Disk Utility in Mac OS X

Yes its just a disc image created on a mac, and can be renamed into an ISO file and burned as normal.

Ive never done it myself, since theres no way in hell im putting anything on my PC thats been inside a mac. However on filext.com its the 3rd entry down for 'cdr' that i presume the OP's talking about. (http://filext.com/file-extension/cdr).
Extension: CDR
Program and/or Extension Function: Final Cut Pro CD/DVD Image File
Company: Apple Inc.
Specific Notes: Final Cut provides Mac users editing tools, sound design, real-time motion graphics and DVD authoring. CDR files are ISO images and, if moved to a PC, can be renamed and burned as ISO files.

:P

Question About Large File (7 GB)

Postby brovash » Mon Oct 06, 2008 3:27 pm

So I downloaded snow leopard developer version, the new OS for mac. The file is 7 GB big, and the instructions were to burn the .cdr file, an image file, with Toast onto a dual layer DVD and then use it during reboot to install. However, my computer cannot burn dual layer DVD's. I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do, such as putting the file on an external hard drive and having access to it in this way during installation?

You could use a USB Stick and make it bootable (http://tipsandhakcs.blogspot.com/2008/07/free-utility-to-make-your-usb-pen-drive.html?rfdid=2139920)... just an option :)
Why?? Oh why???
