I save all my wordprocesser files to a formatted CD/RW. I do this (after saving to the hard drive) by going to FILE - SEND TO - DLA This works great for a while, but when about 1 to 2MB of files are on the CD/RW the DLA option disappears from the file menu. When I go to My Computer it shows the drive as Full (big blue circle) even though the total of files is shown as less than 2MB I have tried saving by dragging in Windows Explorer and that doesn't work either. I should be getting nearly 600MB onto the CD/RW - does anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks Rik

Look for the option to allow other files to be added

It is probably set to finalise the disc at the moment

I don't think this applies: I am constantly adding new files/changing existing files until a point is reached when from over 90% free space on the CDRW there is suddenly no space, even though nothing much has been added. This has happened with several CDRWs

just as a reference....if youre moving these files to a cdrw then modifying them...then putting them back on the cdrw...then modifying them...etc.....then the disk is gonna go bad pretty fast....if this happens on disks that you've used for this proccess multiple times..then the disk is probably screwed
