I created a project yesterday.
The project is stored on an external hard drive. Yesterday that drive had the letter "G:".

Today I try to open the project, and I've that error :
"G:\dvd\menu.avi" : permission denied

The menu.avi file is in the same directory than the dvds file, but stored in absolute path in dvds file :

<video width="720" height="405" id="background" xlink:href="G:\dvd\menu.avi"/>

I have to manually edit the dvds file each time I want to load the project to make all files find by DVD Styler.
Why not store the relative path when referenced files needed for the project are in the same or a sub directory of the project file ? I mean, why do not store like that :

<video width="720" height="405" id="background" xlink:href="menu.avi"/>

Thanks

    I forgot to mention that the raison that I DVD Styler can't find the referenced files is that drive letter change everyday, depending on the order I need other hard drives
