I have been unable to transfer files (photos) from the folder on the D drive to E:\(DVD DRIVE). There are no error messages. The copy dialog box does not pop up.

Thank you for your assistance

So many things could be wrong and you give no information about the computer at all. Is this a DVD-rom drive? Have you tried any other software but whats built into windows to burn the files to the disk. I use Imgburn for all my needs. I never liked the windows one. your windows burning software may be corrupt by some program or a bad sector that developed on the drive where the windows burning software was located. Checkdisk may repair the software.

Imgburn has worked for every drive i have used so far on about 30 computers.

Hi SRX660

I have been able to burn an iso image with imgburn so I know that the drive works but when I select files to put onto a disk then click and drag them to the drive and it doesn't show that the files are on the drive ready to burn. I'm at work at the moment but I will look to see what sort of drive it is when I go home

ImgBurn does far more than burn an ISO.
I think I can assure you that what SRX660 was suggesting was that you try burning your photos to DVD using that program to cover the eventuality that the Windows software, or indeed whatever you usually use ie: Nero etc is in itself corrupted.
