  • How do I backup my kits to cd?

    I just got a new 8 and all my kits/templates are on my old pc. I have no clue on how to save those to a cd so I can put them on my new pc. Can someone tell a complete NOVICE how to save those and how to back them up etc.? I do have the SBM software so that should be ok...once I find it. Anxious to get started again, any help is appreciated!

    To burn to cd you will have to drop and drag to a program that helps load them..or at least that was the case several years ago..

    Most cd's make you have EVERYTHING you want to transfer ready to pull your files into a central location and ZIP them...


    Create a FILE/Folder to place your files..
    To transfer MAX files..go to your C drive program files OR My documents section and look for SBM..
    OPEN Max and you will see Projects, Templates, Gallery, Published folders

    You can copy each of those folders and send to central location and ZIP or copy and paste from there into another folder..

    NOW...load your CD

    THen RIGHT click on ZIPPED folder to be transferred

    Oh..format the cd if you haven't already..

    THen find the cd location and send...

    If that doesn't work...shoot me and we'll call it a day..someone more knowledgeable will take my place immediately...LOL..

    Good luck!
