Hi,

I believe this is a stupid question, but how do I copy files from a CD to HD under ROS Explorer(Real Hardware Installation)? Copy and paste doesn't work... Drag'n drop either...

Thanks

I use the file manager features in 7-zip.

You can also try total commander -> http://www.ghisler.com/ will work in ros 0.3.9

I suggest setting Total Commander's status in tests to FAILED instead of WORKS (or at least to Run w/o result), because it's misleading people who have enough skills to find appropriate page.

I've tryed all the freeware "explorers" from this [article]http://www.simplehelp.net/2006/10/11/10 ... -reviewed/[/url] and they all failed.

I'd recommend CMD as well. Simply select "run" from the Start menu and run "cmd". (or start it using the desktop shortcut)
Then type:
copy d:\anypathyoulike\yourfile.xxx c:\anypathyoulike\yourfile.xxx
and it will copy that file. Use copy d:\*.* c:\*.* to copy all the files from d:\ to c:\ (does not include subfolders)
Console is one of the things that are best working.

Console is less prone to crash the OS, also it doesnt spam debug log at all.

If you need to copy whole directory structure, use xcopy command (xcopy /s *.* [destination] - correct me if i`m wrong).

Have you tried:
1. Select files on CD
2. Select folder on HD (LHS pane of explorer)
3. Right mouse click on folder
4. Drop down should have "insert"
:wink:
