Thanks Jim, that would be a wonderful addition if it was possible. The designs did not have to be put into a special folder or the CD formatted. We put the CD into the 'CD reader' first, which was hooked to her machine and turned on. We checked the CD by going into 'my computer' and looked at the CD it had nothing on it. So I presume no special folder needed. Big plus I would think.
Will look forward to hearing what you find out. Zoe

There is nothing in the 12000 to indicate that it would support a CD, even after the first update. However you seem to have made it work by just plugging the CD drive into the USB port. I'm at a conference this week, but will check it out when I get home.
