           Hi everybody ;

 

                                I'm having a problem transferring files from my Picture Folder to Drive D (where the CD-RW is located ).  I formatted a Memorex CD-RW disk. Did a  FULL format.   Before.........I used  drag-and-drop, and it worked.  I'm not sure what to check.   I checked the drive properties.  It stated "Disk Present..........Rewritable Disk".  I'm using InCd......I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.    The problem is that when I click on the menu for the drive,  the PASTE option is missing.  It just lists COPY (along with the usual options).   I also checked in another Properties box  (I can't remember which one is was........sorry) and the drag and drop function was checked.   After that I DID try using a USB drive I had sitting around.   And I had no problem with the drag-and-drop function.  I tried updating Drive D's  drivers.  But got the message that the driver was up to date.      Just as an experiment,  I put a previously formatted and burned DVD-RW disk in the Optical drive, and reading the disk was no problem (just to make sure that this drive WAS able to read disks),   Device Manager ?   No problems there.   Anyway. I'm not sure what to check.      I'm running Windows 7 Professional  32-bit.......3Gb RAM.

                                                                                                         Thanks

Hi garystan and welcome to our forums

 

:welcome: ,

Here's some thoughts for you:

 

Just for the moment don't open IN CD just use native Windows tools

Here's how:

 

1 Open your picture folder and select a picture

2 Right click the picture you want to put to CD

3 Select Send to

4 Select your CD drive

see if this works for you... if it does then you can fine tune the procedure to suit the number of images you want to burn to optical disc.

 

Let us know how you get on

Regards

REPLY :

          I tried the drag-and drop.  But there's no PASTE option.  And I just get a black circle with a line through it.   I tried a USB flash drive, and it DID

          work.  Until I get more USB drives, I'm using CD-RWs.   But.....if I open the pic in Photoshop, then SAVE it to disk, that works.  Same with file from

          my MUSIC folder (open these files with Audacity).

               P.S.----Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.......
