Yes, I said that it was in the list, but I want it to appear as the preferred choice, I don't want to have to scroll down to it. I want N: to be the first choice, i.e. the default choice. I don't want to have to even touch the target setting. That was the point of adding the N: as the directory to save the file to.
I wish that was all it did. Every time I put in a new disk, it pops open a new copy of the program. If I copy ten disks, there are ten copies of the program open. I don't want it to open a second version of the program. Just use the one that is already open.
Not at all...when it scans the new disk, it gets the volume name from the new disk and it creates a folder in the "full disc" folder with the new volume name. That part works fine, it creates a new folder for each volume, so each DVD has it's own folder. I then move them from "full disc" to where I really want them to go, i.e. sorted by rating.
That is why I specified the steps I would like it to work in.
How else do others copy their collections to a file server? It is very tedious having to close all the new copies of the program it insists on opening, it is maddening I can't choose a default directory to write to without having to pick the directory every time.
Have you ran BIOS setup on a PC? You can choose boot drive, i.e. floppy, drive C:, CD, DVD, etc. You tell it what you want to boot from. This is no different. I want to choose where to write to and have that one on the top of the list, just like when choosing a boot device in BIOS.
Another way of saying is, I ought to be able to set a priority list for destination directory. If I always want to write to my 3rd DVD drive, I ought to have an option to choose that particular drive as default destination. Likewise, I ought to be able to use the defined drive directory as the default "first choice" in the list. Then if I want to change it, I can, but in my case, I always want it to write to the same drive, same "full disc" folder, with a folder in there for each DVD it copied.
But back to what I asked.
If you were using this product and wanted to copy thousands of DVDs to your server, what steps would you use?
The current choices with DVDFab aren't very flexible in terms of choosing the default setup.
I can't be the only person on this list that used the DVD copy programs to do what I am doing. I thought there were a lot of people out there copying their DVD collections to their media servers?
