          I'm guessing your paths were changed once you burned the compiled files?
          you can fix it by adding to directors searchpaths.

          Hope that helps!

                  The easiest way is to keep all the digital videos in the same folder as
                  the director movie. If you need to have htem in subfolders, then make
                  sure you have the same relative paths on your CD. For instance, if your
                  authoring environment is setup like this:

                  director movie = c:\someFolder\someDirectorFile.dir
                  digital video = c:\someFolder\someSubFolder\movie1.avi
                  digital video = c:\someFolder\someSubFolder\movie2.avi

                  Then make sure your CD is setup like this:

                  CD Root\someDirectorFile.exe
                  CD Root\someSubFolder\movie1.avi
                  CD Root\someSubFolder\movie2.avi

                  That always works for me. The key is that the relative paths need to
                  remain the same.

                  If you want to try the searchpaths approach, you need to use something
                  like the script you posted earlier, but it goes in a MOVIE script. Not
                  in a behaviour script on the AVIs themselves.

                    Personally I think using the "searchpath" is a bad idea.
                    You should know exactly where your files are.

                    Basically you tell director to sort out a problem you created yourself...

                      This is the way to go IMHO. Just make sure you don't use extensions in
                      the navigation between movies.

                      go movie "menu"

                      instead of:

                      go movie "menu.dir"

                        Personally I don't use search paths; but every idea helps.
