You can copy or save images onto CD-R disks and CD-RW disks. The shooting information is saved along with the image.

  • This feature is only possible with computers satisfying the following conditions.
    • Windows XP is pre-installed
    • A CD-R/RW drive is built-in
  • You can add additional images to a CD-RW disk that has been written to previously, as long as there is enough space.

1. Place a CD-R/RW disk in the drive.

2. If a window like the one shown here appears, click [Cancel] and close the window.

3. Click [Export] in the ZoomBrowser EX Main Window, followed by [Backup to CD].
- You can also save images to a CD by clicking the [File] menu and selecting [Backup to CD].

4. Confirm that [1. Select Images] is selected, and select the folder or image in the Browser Area.

5. Click [2. Specify Backup Settings], select the destination CD-R/RW drive and input a CD title.

Verify after backup - Turn verification on or off by checking or clearing this checkbox as required. The default is the previous setting.

  • On - Existing data files on the CD are saved to your hard disk before new files are added to the CD. After the new files have been added, all files are verified to ensure no data has been lost in the backup process. Note that only data accessed through standard Windows file operations can be verified.

  • Off - No files are verified.

Return to Step 5

Space on CDR - Space information for the current CD is displayed as a number. The number may be megabytes (MB), kilobytes (KB) or bytes (B).

  • Current Session - the dark gray part of the graphic indicates the number of MB/KB/B required for backup in the current session. This is the space required for the folders and images you selected for backup.
