Not sure how to get your Akai MPC sample collection on CD-ROM? Just follow these simple steps and you'll be up and running in no time!
1.) Open Nero Burning Rom 2.) Choose the CD-ROM (ISO) type CD (it will default to this upon opening the program) 3.) Select the ISO Tab. 4.) Uncheck the ‘ Joliet (Secondary volume descriptor and directories using Unicode) 5.) Uncheck ‘Allow path depth of more than 8 directories' 6.) Uncheck ‘Allow more than 255 characters in path' 7.) Afterwards, Click the ‘New' Tab 8.) For the MPC2000XL, Drag all . snd/.pgm files or folders containing . snd/.pgm files that you would like on the current CD-ROM. The more organized your sounds, the better.
For the MPC2000, drag the bare samples and .pgm files. The MPC2000 has trouble with folders :). 9.) If you would like to custom name your MPC CD-ROM, right click the CD-ROM icon and choose ‘rename'. Keep in mind you can only use 8 characters for the name. 10.) Select ‘Burn Compilation' in the ‘Recorder' Drop down menu. 11.) Check the ‘Finalize CD' and click ‘Burn'
*Note: Remember to 're-check' these items when burning regular CD-ROMs otherwise your files and folder names will change - this can be quite frustrating.
