    Re: hyperlinking

    could you not use the 'autorun' command? i.e.

    [autorun]
    open = name of cdrom

    burn it onto the root of the cdrom as "autorun.inf"

    to get an idea of how it works, find a pre recorded cdrom which autoruns, right click to Explore and look for the autorun.inf file. hope this helps

    How about using dir2html to make an html page that looks like an explorer window?: http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/dir2html/

    Re: hyperlinking

    what a trying to do it i have got a web page on a cdrom which links to all the pdf files on the cdrom it all works fine the problem i have is that there are some zip folders which they can copy and paste to wherever they like with flipcharts in. what i whan to be able to do is for the to click a link on the webpage and it will open the root dir of the said cdrom for the to browse and copy file to there home pc. sorry if i did not make it clear enough only had two hours to do this but have manage to get more ttime. its just at the moment they click the cd rom and the autorun file runs and the get the web page. ( i have told them to right click and goto explore but they keep forgetting)

    Re: hyperlinking

    Ok i think i understand.
    The webpage is on the cd and you want to open a folder on the said cd to show file/resources.!?!

    This is what i would do:
    Use relative urls. So instead of saying for example
    <a href="c://mydocuments blah blah">
    I would just link to the folder windows will(should) open that folder in all its glory.

    Resources

    NOTE: As long as there is no index.html page within the said folder this should work.

    Let me know if this is what you were asking for.
