This theoretically should be possible if you are using a USB version, 
although you should try it. I think someone mentioned that they had 
problems storing created data on the USB.

Alternatively, you will need to run through a build process again to 
create a new version of a DVD. (I recommend you try to avoid doing this.

The only idea that I'm aware of so far is that we will probably have to 
use something similar to the last release as we haven't had a volunteer 
to create artwork for this release.

So please go ahead and volunteer to build upon your artwork.

The one suggestion I do have is that we make the cover different to last 
year. It can have the same theme, but people should be able to recognise 
that the DVD is different to the one they picked up last year. Eg: Same 
artwork, but in a different colour.
