I tried to run a number of CDs through Manifest Maker, copying the input files to an output directory on a hard drive (with no size limit)
A couple of the CDs have an autorun.inf file - probably not an unreasonable thing. I also noticed that there were other files with names duplicated across disks
The first CD ran through in a manner I would have expected.
However, when I tried to process another CD, things started to go strange. After the 'copying' dialog disappeared, I hit 'next', but to the next step it did not. I noticed that the console had a message to the effect of "ERRNO 13: cannot copy file autorun.inf - something about privileges". The files copied to the output media all were 'Read-only' (which is what I expected of a file copied from read-only media).
What I suspect is happening, is that, for the second media, it tried to overwrite the file with the duplicate name. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
What might have to happen, is when you have multiple input media, is for the contents of each medium to be copied to a unique folder under the 'records' folder...
/records/input media 1/
/records/input media 2/
I think that would be a far better thing than prompting the user for a new name for the subsequent file.
