Advise needed with pc problems please

Hello ,
My pc is one year old with no problems up to about 3 weeks ago when the mouse start freezing or disappearing when I booted up out of standby.

In the last week I have been trying to back up my photos to a dvd+r or a cd+r disc with pinnacle software. I either get the screen freezing or saying they need formatting (which they do not)or there is a path or something else
wrong etc.

I have tried unistlling pinnacle and then installing it again but to no avail.
I have tied a system resore of one month to see if that cures it.
The pinnacle software still does the same thing but I am not sure yet if the mouse still freezes or not, time will tell on that.

I would be grateful for any ideas.

i presume you are using xp? what happens if you open 'my pictures' (presumably where they are stored) and select from the left hand menu copy to cd?

Yes I am on xp.

If I try to copy from the left hand menu,I get that disc is write protected or nothing happens at all.It does not freeze up trying this but still done;'t work.
