I stumbled across a comment on a forum site recently where a user mentioned that he was accessing his books from his CDs and was frustrated by the speed at which they loaded when scrolling through large portions of text.
I was happy to see that someone quickly let him know that he could copy all of his resources to his hard drive and put his CDs in his closet as a backup.
If you are still accessing your Libronix books from your CDs, read on. With the size of today’s hard drives, most of you will have plenty of room for all of your resource files and should not be using your CDs after the initial installation.
There are at least three benefits to copying your books to your hard drive.
- Your computer will be able to access your books much more quickly from your hard drive than you can from your optical drive.
- You won’t have to be continually swapping CDs.
- You’ll have access to all of your books at once instead of being limited to only the books on a given CD.
To copy your resources to your hard drive, follow these steps:
- Insert your CD/DVD into your drive.
- Open Libronix.
- Click on Tools > Library Management > Location Manager.
- Wait until it is done discovering all of the resources that need to be copied.
- Click the Copy Resources button.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have copied all of your resource files to your hard drive.
