i am trying to backup some important files because i need to reformat and for some reason when i click on the link "write these files to cd" all i get is a classic xp error/warning, dull "dong" sound and no wizard appears. of course this had to happen before i got a chance to backup.

instead of dragging the files onto the CD-R window i thought i would try copying and pasting them in and then right clickin to write to cd, BUT it won't let me paste into that window....what is going on?
can anyone help please.

Hi, I'm Freddie.

There may be something wrong with your burner or you may need to update your drivers. Also, try uninstalling and then reinstalling it again.
