If you project is over 600 MB in size, we suggest looking toward DVD, as storage varies from about four and a half gigabytes to just under 18 GB – regardless of file type. If the book contains strong video components, DVD also lends itself well as it can be configured to be played on a home entertainment system rather than a computer. Some large book projects may be better suited to USB or memory cards – depending on your audience.

So many pages/sites you will visit have lots of photos and/or music, etc. (bells & whistles) that they take forever to load.  If you are on a search for text and don’t care about photos, music and the like, turn them off to speed your load time.

Here’s what you do:  Load Explorer and then click the pull down menu “tools”, next click “(internet) options” (wording may be different for different software versions).  Once a box pops up, you will click the “advanced” tab at the top of the box.  This brings up a long list of things you can have work or disabled.  You want to scroll down the list until you find the “multimedia” section.  Several items in this section are checked.  For fastest download, click each checkmark to de-select all “play” options. Next click the “OK” button at the bottom of the box.  To check, hit the refresh button (button with white sheet with 2 green arrows circling each other). Please note that this may be done in reverse to get photos, etc back.  Any type of multimedia you want to see, click the blank box (which will check it), click “OK” and then the refresh button.
