10.4: A caution on the functionality of Burn Folders
Authored by: legacyb4 on Oct 09, '05 08:52:34PM

I've noticed the same thing.

I had a handful of music files I wanted to back up on an external drive since DVD-R is so much cheaper than hard drive space for archiving.

Dutifully, I created a Burn Folder on the Desktop, dragged the folders from the external drive into the BF, noted that all folders were aliased, and burned it only to find that all folders had the same subfolder (probably the one that was clicked on when dragging the group over).

I tried creating another BF on the external drive and did another drag; same result.

I finally moved the folder full of music files to my Desktop, created a BF on the Desktop, dragged the folders in, and now the links work.

Perhaps there is a bug with external FW drives?
