    Q: How exchange discs info with other people or sync discs info between my office PC, home PC and laptop?

    A: In CD Storage Master, you may use Export and Import function to exchange discs info with other people or sync discs info between your office PC, home PC and laptop.

    For example: In the storage of your home PC, there have 4 discs: "disc A", "disc B", "disc C" and "disc D". But in the storage of your laptop, only 2 discs there: "disc A" and "disc B". Now, you need sync discs between your home PC and laptop.

    Solution: You could export "disc C" and "disc D" from your home PC to a single file. Then, copy this file to your laptop and import these 2 discs from exported file. Now, both your home PC and laptop has 4 discs in the storage.

    Steps:

    1. From your home PC:

      Select "Storage" -> "Export ..." -> "Export to other storage file ..." -> in popup discs selection window, select "disc C" and "disc D" by check the checkbox before each disc. -> click "Export as ..." button -> enter the file name in popup files explorer window -> click "Save" button to confirm exporting.
       

    2. From laptop:

      Copy the exported file from your home PC to laptop -> Select "Storage" -> "Import ..." -> "Import from other storage file ..." -> in popup window, click "..." button to open file selection window -> select the file which exported from home PC -> click "Open" button to open this file -> from discs selection panel, select "disc C" and "disc D" by check the checkbox before each disc. -> click "Import" button.  

    Q: Why the speed of CD or DVD catalog loading process is a little bit slow?

    A: Because of our products support reading metadata from multi-type files. In order to reading metadata from multi-type files, the program will spend some time to analyze files and extract metadata from files. If you want to make a quickly and simple CD and DVD catalog, you can uncheck all 'Support files' at the 'Files supported' panel of 'Options' window. Thus, during the CD catalog loading process, the program will only get general information of files (file name, file size, create date, modify date) to speed up the loading process.

    We high recommend that DO NOT OPEN OTHER WINDOWS DURING THE DISCS LOADING PROCESS!  

    Q: Why the program temporary hang on when loading a CD or DVD catalog sometimes?

    A: Because of the program is extracting information from a compressed archive file. The process of extracting compressed files is a large calculation work, it will cost quite a lot of CPU time, so you will feel the computer temporary hang on sometimes. In order to avoid such situation, you can turn off the compressed files support function by uncheck all compressed archive files and Self-Extract archive files at the 'Compressed Files' panel of 'Options' window. Thus, during the CD catalog loading process, the program will look a compressed file as a single file, and not extract information from this file to avoid temporary hang on situation when loading a CD or DVD catalog.

    We high recommend that DO NOT OPEN OTHER WINDOWS DURING THE DISCS LOADING PROCESS!
