    Question linking two different CDs

    I am currently developing a CD-based website. However, the site has become so large (due, in large part, to digital video) that I need to put it onto two CDs. Perhaps this is really easy to do, but my mind is drawing a blank. How would I go about making links look for the second CD versus the one in the drive? I am using the Macromedia suite for development. Thanks tons!

    I don't think you can because you don't know the drive letters for the cds. (Unless it's all for use on your own machine) Maybe you could consider DVD?

    Unhappy

    That's what I was afraid of. The problem with going over to a DVD is that the intended audience (public school teachers) are not likely to have acess to DVD players never mind computers with DVD drives. Ah the delema! Thanks anyways.

    To do this, you would have to know how to program and create an application that alerts the user to insert the other CD. Sorry. There is no easy solution. Targeting files on one cd is easy enough. For two CDs, the user would have to be notified when to change CDs and then when the CD was inserted, the site would continue. Programming....
