Default 4 floppies to cd

Ive got a legal early copy of works on 4 floppies, and its sooo good, as small and quick. I can also load just the database.

I copied the 4 floppies onto a cd, but it only runs the first, I cant get it to keep going through the 4 files.

Anyone done this/ know how??

it has to do with the setup sector, it assumes another disk, when you are prompted for another disc, if it gives the option to find a specific location, choose the folder which contains the next disc.

If there are no common files, then maybe you can copy them all to the one folder. Otherwise, you may have to burn 3 discs OR Create ISO's of the disk (eg: google CDIMAGE, which can make ISO images of folders). Then you can use a virtual CD Drive and mount each image as required (google: DAEMON TOOLS: a popular drive emulator). This way you don't waste any CDs at all.
