How To Copy An Image Collection To The Hard Drive For a CD Collection:

1. Ideally create one folder in which all the cds will be copied to. So for example, create a folder on your C drive called c:\HemeraCollection

2. Then for each cd, please create a subfolder under that main folder. So for example, for cd#2 create a subfolder called cd2 which would leave you with the path c:\HemeraCollection\cd2

3. On each content cd, there is an hpi folder. Copy the hpi folder(and all its contents) from each cd into their respecitve subfolder. So for example for cd#2, copy the hpi folder into c:\HemeraCollection\cd2 which leaves you with the path
c:\HemeraCollection\cd2\hpi where all the images for cd#2 are in the hpi folder.

4. Then in the application, please go to the Edit menu and choose the Options menu(Windows)/Preferences menu(Mac) and then select the CD-ROM Drives tab.

5. Then click the Add button and choose the full path(including the hpi folder) for each cd. So for example, click Add and then choose the path c:\HemeraCollection\cd2\hpi and then click Add for each other cd and add its hpi path.

How To Copy An Image Collection To The Hard Drive For A DVD Collection:

1. Ideally create one folder in which all the cds will be copied to. So for example, create a folder on your C drive called c:\HemeraCollection

2. Then for each DVD, please create a subfolder under that main folder. So for example, for DVD#2 create a subfolder called DVD2 which would leave you with the path c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2

3. On each DVD, there is an hpi folder. Copy the hpi folder(and all its contents) from each DVD into their respecitve subfolder. So for example for DVD#2, copy the hpi folder into c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2 which leaves you with the path
c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2\hpi.

4. Then in the application, please go to the Edit menu and choose the Options menu(Windows)/Preferences menu(Mac) and then select the CD-ROM Drives tab.

5. Then you will see that under the hpi folder for each dvd, there are folder such as disk1, disk2, etc. Click the Add button and choose the full path for each disk folder. So for example, click Add and then choose the path c:\HemeraCollection\DVD2\hpi\disk1 and then click Add for each other disk folder for that DVD. Then repeat this for all other dvd's

How To Copy The Contents Of A CD Collection To A DVD:

1. On the DVD create a folder called HPI on the root of the DVD.

2. Create subfolders called disk1, disk2, disk3, etc. where disk1 will contain the contents for cd1, disk2 will contain the contents for cd2, etc.

3. Then look for the hpi folder that can be found on each cd. Copy the contents that are found in the hpi folder to the respective disk subfolder that was created on the dvd. So for example, insert cd#2 into your cd-rom drive. Open up the hpi folder found on that cd and copy all the images found under that hpi folder. Then paste those images onto the DVD at the location HPI\disk2 so that all the images are placed directly inder the disk2 folder. Then proceed to do the same for the other cd's.

4. Then burn the dvd and you should be able to use that instead of the cd's. Just note that many of our collections would require more than one DVD so if only cd's 1-5 fit on the first DVD, then on the 2nd DVD, create an HPI folder again and start again at disk1 and in this case, copy the contents of cd#6 into disk1, cd#7 into disk2, etc.
