Specs: Windows 98
I'm trying to burn 28 mb of pics from my old Windows 98 computer to a CD R (140 photos.) I tried copy and paste, but I get the error, Access Denied. There is no internet access on the old computer.

What CD burning software are you using?

Hi, Nigel, Thanks for responding. I was not using a particular program. I selected the file, right click, copy, Then I opened the CD by going to Run, D: (the CD drive,) Click in the blank area of D: Then right click. Then Paste. Received error code Access denied.
BTW - after getting tired of that, I used the CD to copy music files from the Windows 98 computer to the CD by using RealPlayer. Success with the music. Lisa

Windows 98 doesn't have a native burning program (like WinXP).

There may be a work-around using RealPlayer to burn data:

Otherwise, you'll need Win98-compatible data burning software.

Here's a page of freebees, but make sure they work with Win98 before installing:

Using copy and paste is a very specific method of burning (usually reserved for rewriteable discs, such as CD-RW). For CD-R you normally use a burning program and bring the files into a Window for burning.

Can the computer take a USB flash drive?

Another possibility is to put the hard disk in an enclosure (caddy) which will convert it to a USB device to run a newer computer. You could then use the burning function of the other computer to create the CD.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks. We will try a CD RW. We can't download from the internet on this computer; that's why it was replaced. No internet capability (according to my husband.) Might not be able to get a CD RW until tomorrow. Will report back then. Thanks again.

Hi, Derek, Thanks for your response. We will try a CD RW - have to go get one in the morning. Yes there is a USB, but no driver for it, and unable to download from the internet on this machine. Thanks again. We will let you know how it goes tomorrow.

I think the problem will most likely be the lack of a burning program, as per #1.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yeah, you will need a burning program if you can't use realplayer. Once you install that, using a cd-r disk is usually preferable but cd-r/w ought to work.

Edit I think you can use something like Nero's InCD for copy and paste on cd-r/w in windows 98 but that is still a separate installation. Since you'll have to install something it might as well be regular burning software.

"No internet capability (according to my husband.)"

Sorry to say, but unless your internet provider is something really strange---your husband's wrong:

Of course, use something other than Internet Explorer and install anti-virus/firewall/anti-malware as soon as you get on.
