  • Can VortexBox be used to bulk copy files from CD-ROMs

    Hi
    I run a digitisation program and am looking for an efficient way to migrate a collection of digitised photographs (TIFF files) off several thousand CD-ROMs. I haven't tried myself yet, so apologies if the answer is obvious, but is it posssible to use VortexBox in this way? If so, can anyone point me to a source of advice? I'm hoping to be able to configure the bash scripts (?) to just copy files rather than rip and convert CDs, while leaving the autoloading and file storage parts intact.
    Any advice very appreciated.

    VortexBox is designed to rip audio CDs not copy files. You could build some custom scripts to copy files. This would be possible with any linux distribution any may be easier to do with a GUI window interface not a command line only distro like VortexBox.
