Yes there is now easy way to get this done. Also it's never been standardized in Windows. Let's cut through all this and just plow ahead.
Find Record Now in your Start, Programs Menu and LEARN HOW TO USE IT. Read the manual, read online, do the homework.
Or forget it and use what I use. Titles only, no tutorial or where to find them.
2. DVD FLICK
These 3 do just about anything I need to do with CDR/W and DVDR/W media.
I am am Mac person (insert insult here) trying to help my wife burn data cd's on her Toshiba laptop. Unfortunately we can not.
Windows XP media edition 2004
Toshiba Satellite laptop
Here are our problems and the clues leading up to them:
I insert a blank cd-r
No "dialogue box" appears (per Windows XP web help search)
I see the cd-r in 'my computer' as "drive :D"
I double-click the cd-r and it says ":D is not accessable - incorrect function"
Then, I go to the files that I want to write to the cd-r.
I right-click on the file
I see a menu that includes "send to"
A friend said I should see the cd-r (or Drive :D) in the menu but I do not.
All I see under the "send to" menu is:
- compressed zipped folder
- mail recipient
- my documents
- record now
We are able to burn audio CD's in iTunes, so we assume we have a cd- burner in the laptop.
Thanks for any help.
