How to create data CD-ROM's The are two CD burners on the computer attached to the spectrophotometer. You can use either one to create a data CD-ROM. You can burn multiple sessions onto a single read-only CD. Try to put all the absorption data from each leg onto one CD, making subfolders for CSV files and DSW files.
Using the lower (light-coloured) CD-RW drive (E:):
Start Nero-Burning Rom program (on desktop)
Select CD-ROM (ISO) icon
Check ISO tab for: ISO Level2, Mode 1, ISO9660 character set, Joliet (do not select any of the "Relax" options).
Check "Multi-session" tab: Select Start or Continue Multi-session Disk. Label the volume (set volume label).
Click on "New"
Drag files from right panel (File Browser) to the left panel (CD-ROM)
Click on the button to open "Write CD Dialog". Choose Action = write, Write method = Track at once, Number of copies = 1
Click on the "write" button to write the CD
You should see a series of messages. The last one will be: Burn process completed successfully.
Using the upper (black) drive (D:):
Insert disk and start Roxio EZ CD Creator (it my run automatically when a blank disk is inserted).
Choose "make a data cd/data CD project"
Open Files/CD Project Properties: set the volume label, check that file system is "Joliet", check that physical format is set to "Mode 1"
