View Full Version : MAC Headz...create checksums for DVD

2005-08-06, 04:59 PM
what's a good program for creating .md5's on DVDs?

i use xACT for audio seeds, but don't know if it'll create em on larger filesets [i.e. Video_TS folders].

I'd very much recommend checksum+ <http://homepage.mac.com/julifos/soft/checksum/>

I'm sure xACT could handle it but this is a nice option. Only foible is that it names the MD5 after the first file in the set.

I'd also recommend upgrading to 10.3.9 unless you're aware of any issues with apps you run etc.

thanks ffooky...you can then rename the md5 to band-date-etc afterword right?

Yep. It seems to create/check slightly more quickly than xACT but there's not much in it. The SFV support is useful for Usenet posts 'n all.

xACT works just fine, Aaron. That's what I use.
