Web Page Graphics missing after Burning a Data CD

Hi,

I was very excited when I first installed Roxio Easy CD Creator V. 6 and was able to burn long file names Data CDs using UDF format and Win 98 SE.

But now all of a sudden for no reason when I burn web page files that have web site graphics and charts etc. those are not burned. Only text is burned.

I tested before burning and tests show everything OK with exact no of files burned as the source files but after actually burning a CD when I try to open files from the CD only text is there and no graphics.

Something to note here though. Word, Pdf and any Gif, or Png. Files do burn with graphics but not the web pages with graphics.


The only hint that I am getting is that when I open the file text shows immediately and there is a little message in taskbar that says " opening page" and something about page file “ or “downloading picture “ but no graphics appear.

I did not have this problem when I first burned 3 Data CDs with the same OS namely Win 98 SE.

Also there is 1.6 GB free space in my Win 98 SE partition and I have checked the box to let Window manage my virtual memory.

I was also able to burn those same Data files with Win XP where I hardly have 200 MB of free space. But now I can't burn using XP either.

After burning the CD and while reading it, When I right click a folder of the web page file to see properties, the folder shows 0 Bytes and if I double click the folder to open it I get the message "File is not accessible" "An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format"

I checked and Re-Checked before burning that I was using UDF format and tested all CDs before burning them and tests show exact no of files burned as the source files and says test successful.

Nothing has changed since I burned first 3 Data CDs but now using the same OS and same settings and same files, I am running into brick wall.

Does this have something to do with page file and if yes, what do I need to do? I am not a computer expert so if something needs to be done about page file I would appreciate detailed instructions. I have a dual boot hard disk with 5 partitions and Win 98 SE on C: drive and Win XP pro on D: drive and other 3 are data partitions.

Also why now this problem and not when I burned first 3 CDs successfully with same OS and page file and settings?

Can somebody please help?

Thank You,
Greg

ok a few questions before i answer the issue.

are these websites you have made yourself or ones that you have downloaded off the internet??




the thing is the position of the fiels on the cd is VERY important.

if you have a file e.g. WEBSITE.html
and it has an image on it e.g. BOB.jpg

then on your hard drive the location of the website will be
C:/blahblah/websites/WEBSITE.html

and the image will be saved here
C:/blahblah/websites/WEBSITEfiles/BOB.jpg




ok so it shows that in one directory will be saved the html file, and also another dicectory whichs holds all the linked files for that website.



now in the HTML document the image will be stored here.
/WEBSITEfiles/BOB.jpg


meaning that it will look for the directory WEBISTEfiles (in the current directory) and then look for the image within it.

this means that if the images were in a directory on your "Hard Drive" they also need to be in the same directory on the cd.


also another problem could be this.

if you saved it onto your computer from the internet it may have been saved in the HTML document to look for the "absolute path"

e.g.
c:/mydocuments/john/blahblah/websitefile/BOB.jpg


that means that it will look for the images on the HDD rather than on the cd.





so the first thing to check that you are doing right is this, check that you have kept the directory structure INTACT, make sure the location of the images in relation to the location of the website are the same.

.pdf files work fine because the images are stored INSIDE the actual file
pngs, gifs work fine because they are image formats in their own right.
