If you're looking to use CD-ROM or DVD-ROM as a distribution and storage medium for your information, GEAR is the product you want producing it. For more than a decade, GEAR had bridged the gap between applications and data on hard drives and CD-ROM/DVD-ROM.

In addition to the above, GEAR PRO Unix also supports recording of authored (physical) CD images and CD copying of the following CD types:

  • Non ISO-9660 CD-ROM (Native file systems like Apple HFS or Unix native file systems)
  • Photo CD
  • Video CD
  • CD-I
  • Proprietary video game authoring (3DO, Nintendo, Sega, CD Karaoke, and other game titles)
  • Compressed and encrypted file formats
  • Custom-generated images

Please keep in mind that the files contained in the proceeding formats must first be authored using their corresponding external editing package (For example, a game design engine). However, once their creation is complete, GEAR provides the perfect solution for testing and mastering your files. For CD and DVD copying GEAR supports an easy CopyCD function to copy almost any type of disc, including the above formats.

Notification:

Any time you want to copy a CD, make sure you understand your rights under local copyright laws. The content on most commercial CDs and DVDs are protected by copyright laws. This usually means you cannot make a copy at all (as is the case with most audio CDs, video CDs and CD-I). If the CD contains software, you are normally allowed to make one backup copy for archival purposes only. If the CD contents are not protected by any copyright, or if you have permission from the copyright owner, you are free to make copies.
