I selected which pics I wanted and then I clicked Burn. then something pops up and asks me what I want to do and then I say write them or something to that effect, NOW I try to do the same and it is not working what happened and why isnt it popping up and asking me it doesnt tell me that there are files waiting to be written PLease help me this is bugging me, I dont know if I need the writing wizard thing, or if the auto play isnt working, or if its a driver issue, I know the burn button doesnt work and the pop up doesnt comeup asking me where to send it or what.

Hello cynthia29...

Give this a try:

Select the pictures (or any other file), right click on it, point to "Send To", and choose your cd burner from the menu. If there is a disk in the drive, Vista will tell you there are files waiting to be written with a balloon in the lower right corner of the screen...click the balloon to start the operation.

If there is no disk in the drive, Vista will prompt you for a disk and will still tell you that you have files waiting to be written.

This is the only "Burn" option I know of that's native to Vista.

If the options for burning aren't present as you indicated in your PM, it may be in the settings.

Click the Start orb and click on "Computer". Right click on the optical drive you want to use for burning and choose "Properties"...click on the "Recording" tab. Is this drive selected in the top box?
