[Athen] RFBD question of a tech nature

Typically, the RFB&D downloader unzips the DAISY book into a folder
called "RFB&D Media Files" and each CD worth of data is in its own
folder. You would just burn each folder (CD1, of CD2 for example) to its
own CD.

If you only have the .zip files you'll have to unzip them to get the
DAISY CD folders before burning any CDs.

Good Luck,

Subject: [Athen] RFBD question of a tech nature

We have started downloading DAISY books from RFBD this semester. The
instructions seem pretty clear and I have the downloader installed and
have downloaded a couple of books so far.

However. I cannot seem to figure out how to put 1.6 gb worth of files
onto a 700 mb CD. In fact, I know this to be impossible, yet the
instructions clearly say I can burn these to CD. I also noticed all of
them are .zip files. I anticipate students not really being able to use
these files as intended on their DAISY players considering how they are
being presented to me.

What the heck am I missing here? I have sent a request for technical
assistance to RFBD and got an "out of office" return message. I need to
get this resolved soon. Anyone have some tips/procedures for me to use?
