The Briefcase feature in Windows XP helps you keep your files updated by automatically synchronizing multiple copies of individual files. In other words, Briefcase keeps track of the relationship between files on two or more computers.
So, instead of trying to burn a cd from briefcase, i would just copy the files in briefcase into your my documents folder and burn a cd-rw from there.

According to Microsoft (in the help as well as the website) the procedure is as follows:
- Insert a removable disk into a disk drive on your main computer.
- Open Briefcase, and then copy the appropriate files to Briefcase.
- Drag Briefcase to the disk. The files in Briefcase are copied to the disk.
- Remove the disk from your main computer and insert it into a disk drive on your portable computer.
- Open Briefcase from the disk and work on the files. When you are ready to synchronize the files, remove the disk from your portable computer and reinsert it into a disk drive on your main computer.
- Open Briefcase from the disk, and then do one of the following:
To update all the files, on the Briefcase menu, click Update All.
To update only some of the files, select the files you want to update, and then on the Briefcase menu, click Update Selection.
My problem lies in step 3. I can do it with a floppy disk, but not a CD-RW. A floppy is no good to me as the files I need to work with are 200mb more than a floppy can take. When you try and drag and drop, or any other method I could think of, you get the message I said before.
