All I want to do is save my .jpg photos on my computer to a DVD. I will open the folder that contains the photos and try to drag them to the drive that contains the DVD but I get an error that says "Cannot create or replace Album1 : the requested resource is in use". Is there another way to copy these photos to disk without installing some sort of program or software?
I assume you are talking about a DVD-RW, correct? Because plain old DVDs are not read/write media. You have to use burning software like Nero and "burn" the information onto the DVD and then it is "read-only". For a DVD-RW some kind of special software is required to read and write the special file system used on DVD-RW disks. It's a pain because only computers with that special software can read the information on the DVD-RW. That's why everyone uses these USB memory sticks. You can easily drag-and-drop files on them and they can be read by most every computer. DVDs are best used for archieving data on a more permanent basis.
I think your idea on putting them on a DVD is solid. With a double layer DVD you can abot 8.5gb of photos on one disk. Why use a CD that will only give you 800mb? I use Nero and add the photos as Data and burn that way. If you have a program to burn then it should be very easy.
