A floder in my documents, I open it, there is about 54 photos in it, select all and then sent to cd. The strange thing is I have already sent lots of copies to people by cd. does it matter what type of cd you copy to?
I forgot to tell you, it asks what would you like widows to do but it does not give any choices.

Next time, post your question in the corresponding forum, in this case Windows XP forum. It makes it easier for other people to find the answer if they've got the same issue as you.

yes it matters. Only cdr and cdrw and not dvd. You need 3rd party software to burn to dvd.

Thank you very much wanderer and Phasta.
I now think it has something to do with my drives C and D that somehow I think have aaltered in someway or other. Local Disk (C:) seems to hold all folders on my computer including Windows, UsbStorage, spoolerlogs, Program Files, Documents and settings etc. is this how it should be? and the drive that shows a disk to the left like a cd, reads as DVD-RAM Drive (D:) do you think this is correct?
Many thanks once again.

DVD RAM drives are just a third type of DVD format. That must be your optical drive letter.

As was mentioned above, what type of disk are you trying to use? Although the DVD drive is capable of burning DVD media, WinXP does not natively support that feature so you need 3rd party software like Nero or Roxio CD/DVD creator. There are also free #rd party programs if you don't have either of the mentioned commercial products.
