I have posted this in the Multimedia section but will also post here in hopes someone can help.
Am producing a Training CD. Need to stream the Video content from CD rom. Cant find a way to make Media Player look to CD rom device unless I make an absolute declaration uch as D:\filename.avi. This works great until the CD rom is E: Anyone know how to make MediaBuilder to search for any CD rom drive regardless of letter. Tried File://filename.avi. No good

Thanks in advance
