How do I use the Media Wizard to create searchable DVDs or thumb drives?
To enable the Media Wizard, you must first create a job configuration that exports index information to an Access database. Once you have scanned all the documents for the CD or DVD and attached them to the database, create a second job that uses “Retrieve and View Records” to search and view these files.
The media wizard will be enabled in the Send menu whenever you have this configuration file open. The sample configurations included with SimpleIndex demonstrate scanning and searching with an Access database. Microsoft Access is not required to create the database.
The media wizard will copy the Access database and all of the files in your Output folder to a temporary folder, along with the SimpleSearch configuration and Autorun files needed to search the files from a CD or DVD. Simply burn all the files in this folder to create the searchable disc.
