Re: [USAphotomaps] Re: Progress on Urban files for Southern Part of Zone 16
- Figure on 6-8 minutes to burn a DVD without verification, or 15' with it. So far I have done 31
Dvd's all with verification and in another 6, I will have burned all of the 1meter zone 12 files to
Dvd. Then comes the southern part of Zone 15, and lastly the urban material. However I haven't
downloaded the "big" tiles except in the Urban areas. Because it seemed like others had done
Mobile must have been some of the later additions to terraserver because those urbans are much
clearer than earlier ones. Likewise Seattle area files were very clear. I suspect Rick is going to be
inundated with DVDs. I figure around 60 in my case. I have had a little problem with some
writable DVD+Rs that have been on my shelf about a year. My wife got them at CostCo (Sony
Brand) by mistake as I didn't have a printer that would print to DVD/CDs.

optimal' resources (bandwidth and drive space) so I'm happy for the help.
I'm only about 15 percent into it so far. I also got into this late
because I had even less drive space until I bought a flash drive. But I
think I'll get there.
If I get done with Atlanta and still have some time left before MS pulls
the plug, I'll go after Montgomery AL next.
I also had a problem initially getting TerraFetcher to install and run.
Kept coming up with an error saying TerraFetcher couldn't find a file
(MFC71.DLL) on my computer. I searched my entire computer and sure enough
that file wasn't there. I Googled the error and tried all the recommended
fixes, but none of them worked. Finally I did the thing they said NOT to
do, I downloaded MFC71.DLL from a DLL download site and moved it to the
System32 directory. That worked. I scanned everything with my anti-virus
checker and everything looks OK, but I'll delete the DLL and TerraFetcher
when the project is over.
