Hello Bos, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could right click on the CD in the "Computer" window, click on Copy, right click on the folder, and click on Paste.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Worked ... with problems

The proceedure did copy the files, (w/a few exceptions) ... however, it took ALL AFTERNOON!

Is this normal?

Did you have anything else running at the time that may have slowed it down?

My guess it that it may have also been caused by your antivirus program (or similar) scanning the CD files before allowing them to be copied over.

If you have a older system with a IDE connected CD drive, then it could also take a while to complete as well.
