PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:

Error Messages:



I'm trying to download pictures from a digital camera just purchased. I've just bought some blank cd's and plugged in the camera etc all correctly. I then try and copy files from the camera's memory onto the D Drive.

I get an error message which says that the D Drive is empty, even though I have put a disc in.

The D drive works as I have downloaded software from CD's onto the PC itself so I'm stumped as to the problem.

I don't know a great deal about computers so not sure if I have done something obviously wrong?

Help???

I've been told I need a cd writer as well.  Whats the difference between a CD writer and a CD burner?

Where can I get these from and how much do they cost??

Hi,

To write directly to a cdr(w) from an application or Windows Explorer you need a packet writing software. EasyCD Creator as one called DirectCD. You need to format the cdr(w) using DirectCD and keep the session open. Then you will be able to wrtie directly to it.

If your software doesn't offer this then do what rghasenohr suggested, bu copying your files to your hard drive and then write to the cdr(w) using your cdr(w) writing software.

Thanks for your help guys.  I have created a new file onto the hard drive, and just bought a cd writer and software to enable burning.
