I am trying to copy and paste photos to a CD-R and the computer is not seeing the disk in the drive. It does play music CDs so I know it's working. Why can't I copy and paste to the CD?

Do you have a CD-rom or a CD burner?

What brand and model?

I don't know the difference. It's a CD compartment which I put the CD into. Shouldn't I be able to just copy and paste?

If it's just a CD ROM, then no you can't use it to burn discs you need a CD burner to do that. It should say on the front of the drive if it's a burner or just a ROM.

Thanks. My CD drive doesn't say anything about being a burner, so I guess it's just to play CDs. I'll use my DVD burner to burn the CD.
