Help please in using a “CD-R 4x CD Recordable CD (650MB, 74 MIN” in my W98 pc.

My CD drive is G:. When I go to DOS and enter G: and then G:\>dir I get the normal message saying “No file found and 650 MB free.”

But when I try to write to the CD (say a message composed in WORD and then Saved As to the G: drive), I get this message: “Cannot save. The folder is marked ‘Read Only’”.

How DO I write to this “recordable” CD? Thanks.

It turns out (on further looking) that I HAD a burner of sorts all along. Adaptec DirecCD was ON my pc. According to its Help menu it allows me to treat the CD (in my drive G:) just as I would a diskette in Drive A:. And it seems to work fine. Thanks again for your help.
