I cannot find where the files to be burned are created/stored. Otherwise I could burn them with 3d party software.
On Win 98SE, I found the files RM created to burn a Shareable CD at C;\Windows\Application Data\RootsMagic\CD Program.
If the CD files are being created but the CD is not being burned, this will work.
1. Open Rootsmagic. Go to Tools/Create a Shareable CD and, after the files are created, close the Burn CD screen instead of burning the CD. Close RootsMagic.
2. Open 3rd party CD burning software. Go to C;\Windows\Application Data\RootsMagic\CD Program. Choose the files and Picture folder in the CD Program folder. Do not include the CD Program folder itself or the autorun won't work.
OK using my machine running XPSP2 with 1.5GB memory I was able to create a complete CD that self starts and ejected when the preparation was complete. (Note slightly over 3000 records in the database and lots and lots of photos and about 1500 references.)
I am using a Memorex CD/DVD-RW drive. I noted the following during the preparation.
1. The photo to be put on the front page does not show up in the preview, but did show up on the opening page of the CD.
2. After you click to burn, waiting until the green bars are complete and then wait some more. The tracks and indexes are being finalized and I found it took another minute to complete the CD at that time it ejected as I had requestion.
So, other than the small error of no picture on the preview, all went as it was published. Creation was smooth and easy. Hats off Bruce!
