Data CDs:



Step 1

Create a zip/rar file of your files and folders, or create a .iso image file of your data CD.

Step 2

Upload the file directly to the TrepStar project. You may upload to your server or cloud service (like Amazon S3).

Before we burn the CD, we unzip your files.


Step 1: Create a .zip/.rar or .iso file:


Zip up your files and subfolders into a single .zip (or .rar) file. Each disc is a single .zip or .rar file. Before we burn the CD, we unzip the files first. Not sure how to zip up files? Learn More

Or, create an .iso image file of your files or physical CD. You can make an .iso file from a CD or DVD. Not sure how to create an .iso file? Learn More

You may also upload an .exe file. This is normally a windows setup file like setup.exe

  1. Data CDs have a capacity limit of about 702MB.
  2. See the capacity of different types of discs and USB.


Step 2: Upload the file:

You have some choices on what to do with the zip, rar, .iso, or .exe file:

1) You may upload your file directly to the TrepStar Project. Edit your project, click the green upload button, and select your file.





2) You may upload your file to your website, then edit the TrepStar project and type in the URL to that file on your server.





3) You may upload your file to a cloud service like Amazon S3. Make that file public, get the URL, then edit the TrepStar project and type in the URL to that file on your server. Learn More about Amazon S3

Other Considerations:

  1. Data CDs contain software (.exe), or any other computer readable files, PDF files (.pdf), Document files (.doc), spreadsheets (.xls), music files (.mp3, .wan), movie files (.avi, .mov, .mp4 etc).
  2. Data CDs have a capacity limit of about 702MB.
  3. See the capacity of different types of discs and USB.
  4. We recommend your final disc size, in bytes is 700,000,000 bytes or less. Technically, 700MB is 700 x 1024 x 1024 which is 737,280,000 bytes. However, this can only happen if the burn is perfect. This is why we recommend a max size of 700,000,000 bytes to allow for recording variations and error corrections during the burning process. If our burn system reports 'insufficient space' during the burn process, we will have to inactivate the project since we are unable to burn those discs.
  5. If you upload (or specify a url to) a .exe file, we automatically add the autorun.inf to the CD so it starts your setup when the user places the disc in their computer.
