Widows CD Wizard won't write files

When I try to copy pictures from My Pictures using the Windows CD wizard, I get a message to insert a writable cd into the drive when there is a writable cd in it. How do I fix this?

What Bob said is correct. I could never get that program to work either.
You didn't state what brand of computer you have. I know on the HP and probably others come pre-loaded with a program called "Sonic" I have used that and it works well on both CD and DVD.
