Still Accessing Libronix Resources from Your CDs?

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.

  1. Your computer will be able to access your books much more quickly from your hard drive than you can from your optical drive.
  2. You won’t have to be continually swapping CDs.
  3. 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:

  1. Insert your CD/DVD into your drive.
  2. Open Libronix.
  3. Click on Tools > Library Management > Location Manager.
  4. Wait until it is done discovering all of the resources that need to be copied.
  5. Click the Copy Resources button.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have copied all of your resource files to your hard drive.

    Hi Phil!
    I have been trying and trying to use Logos to good advantage. It seems as if I have so few of the resources available to me that are listed as being in the Bible Study version. When I do what you’ve said above, it says that everything available has been copied. I’m finally resorting to manually copying stuff from the Resources folder of the DVD to the Resources folder on my hard drive. That is making more things available to me. But it’s a lengthy process that I’m not done with yet. Is there something I’m missing here? :-)
    Love,
    Rob

    Hi, Rob, I think step 4 is where you are having trouble. The disc you received is a dual-layer DVD with 8GB of books on it! Depending on the speed of your machine, it can take quite a while to discover all of the unlocked resources. Laptops are notorious for this. I’d suggest leaving it in the drive for an hour or two, or maybe even overnight while you sleep! I’m pretty sure that that will do the trick.
