  • In Virtual PC click on EDIT then click on PREFERENCES. In PREFERENCES you'll see an option called SHARED FOLDER.

Running a CD Zip Order from Virtual PC
Creating a CD Zip Order

  • Return to the Mac and place the contents of the Shared Folder on your Zip Disk or burn a CD. Follow Instructions below:
  • ZIP: Save the image folder onto your ZIP disk in PC format and send it to ezprints.
  • CD: Burn your CD of this directory and make sure you save it in PC format as ezprints cannot read MAC formatted CD's.
  • Using Toast you can burn under Mac file or folders or ISO 9660 and it will be fine. After you are finished, send it to ezprints.
