I am trying to upgrade my computer and am having trouble with copying file's to disc.I have with help managed to save some to floppy but whenever i try to save to disc i get an error message saying f:\ is not accessible Incorrect function.Can anyone point me in the right direction as it is driving me bonkers. Thank's inadvance for any help.

I assume that F: is an additional disk, Is it internal or external or flash even? Is the disk formatted. Which Windows version are you using?

You need a CD_RW (CDrewrite disk) in your F drive then XP can copy files to it.

You could install something like Nero o write to ordinary CDR disks.
