"Is it possible to save Word files in the D: drive on a CD without additional software for CD burning?"
Answer #1. "CD"s are not recordable media. CD-R and CD-RW are however.
Answer #2. If you meant recordable CD media, then XP's native recording is noted at http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.php
And I would NEVER SAVE A WORD FILE FROM WORD TO SAID MEDIA in XP!!! Far too dangerous and the file could be lost if anything went wrong. You can play on this high wire system without a safety net, but I'll continue to save such files on the hard disk and use Explorer to save such on CDRW or install CDBURNERXP to make a proper CD from my documents.
A very basic question: Is it possible to save Word files in the D: drive on a CD without additional software for CD burning? Thank you.
