    Hi Leanne,

    I'm in the process of doing the exact same thing. Director-online.com has a good article on how to accomplish this by using FileXtra3. I was just at that site (I wanted to give you the URL to the article) but apparently their having problems with the site. When the site is back up, search for the article titled "Copying files off a CD".

    There is also a link in the article where you can download this FREE Xtra (Windows and MAC).

    Good Luck,

    FrankS

    PS: I have to tell you that I'm having problems using the code that was supplied in the article. In fact, I was about to post the code in the "Lingo" section of this forum to get help troubleshooting the code.
