Hi Susan:

Sounds like you may not have the RFB&D Download Manager installed.

Here's some links that should help.

Make sure you have the Download Manager installed, which helps to process the books after they are downloaded.

Here's a link that talks about burning to CD.

We use Roxio EasyCD Creator software to then burn the files to CD rather than using the Windows CD burning capabilities. It is important to reinforce the note on the web page to burn as a data disk, NOT an audio disk.

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?
