I wanted to save some pictures and documents to a CD. I've done this in the past but now when I copy the relevant files (mostly .doc or .bmp)I get various error messages which prevent this from happening. (Can still copy to floppy disk though.)
Have tried with new blank discs incase of disc prob (as error messages sometimes suggest) but still nothing.
Does this ring a bell with anyone? Can you advise of things to try?
(Also, when I put in a disc which in the past would automatically run, such as games or new softward, it does NOT automatically run anymore - any advice on how to fix this?)
I appreciate any help you can give me. (Running Windows Me - it's a terrible PC/OS which has given me nothing but problems since the day I bought the thing!!!)
To autoplay cds when you insert them you need to turn the feature on. I think inder ME you need to right click on my computer > properties > device manager >cd drive then within this there's an option to autoplay, maybe. Re copying data to a cd what utility are you using?
Tried again with 2 different makes of blank discs (both types work if burning CDs and both have worked in storing data in past).
Only error message I got with both this time was:
"Access is denied - make sure disk is not full or write-protected and that file is not currently in use".
Disk shows as 100% free, can't be write-protected (?) because it's not been used before and works for burning, and file is not open.
[With the autorun problem, I followed the My Computer > Properties > Device Manager suggestion but it doesn't seem to have a suitable option. Only options not ticked are "Sync data transfer" and "DMA" - ones which ARE ticked are "disconnect" and "auto insert notification".]
If you need any more info please let me know. Appreciate help. (OS Me)
