Been trying to save a copy of file (small text 270,00 words) from my 'D' hard drive on to 'E' Drive R/W DVD.

File is Open Office 4.1.1 and wanted to save it to 'E' as a MS Word 97 / 2000 / XP (system is XP Professional).

 

Brings up the pop up menu to do the 'Save.'  provide a file name and choose above format (rather than ODF)  and click 'save.' It responds: with popup saying it might not be able save as completely compatible and gives two button choices 'save in existing format' / 'save as ODF.'

I click on 'save in existing format' as i don't want it in ODF.

 

Down in the bottom right corner (where time etc displayed) it brings up a ballon saying 'CD files waiting to be copied to CD; click balloon'

It displays a screen with the volume name and (E:)

Below is usual format commanbds i.e. 'File'  'Edit' 'View' 'Favorites' 'Tools' 'Help'

Below this again are the usual buttons (Back Forward etc etc). Below this again is 'ADDRESS' a CD thumbnail and E:\

 

I click on 'File' and choose 'Write these files to CD.'

It brings up a 'CD Writing Wizard.'I supply volume name and click on 'Next.' It tells me to insert a CD, which I do (blank DVD). Click on  'Next' brings up  diagnostic saying drive is not a writable CD or it is full.

Have gone round in circles, tried everything I can think of can't get any further. Help!

You need a write software .

I would recommend to use NERO as it is one of the better cd/dvd writer.

Hope you will find it useful.

If any other problem persist tell me.

Thanks Natalie, I tend to forget Bill (Gates) and his mates wouldn't supply bundled in with Windows something as basic as writing to media other than a floppy disk !
