I am awaiting the delivery of a new computer and am burning CD's to transfer data to the new one. I am unable to get my Roots Magic data bases onto a CD, either with the backup or save commands. There is just too much to re-enter everything. Can somebody help me??

You are burning other things to a CD and cannot burn the RootsMagic files?

That doesn't make much sense. the RootsMagic files are just like any other files, unless you have them in a private folder or something.

Or, are you trying to ger RootsMagic to put them on the CD?
In that case, forget about using RootsMagic to backup to the CD. Just backup to the hard drive and copy them to the CD like you do any othe program files.

Try to copy your multimedia files as a complete folder or folder group, so it will be easier to re-link them on the new computer.
