How do I find D drive in ’Send to’, options?

In a follow on from a thread this morning: How to burn a CD in XP.

I would like to chose the photos, then select, Send To: D drive. (to burn).

But in the, Send To, menu, I have only four choices. 1. Floppy A. 2. Desk Top. 3. Mail Recipient., and 4. My Documents.
There are no other options. Yet, from more learned than I, it appears that it can be done!

Please, how do I find D drive in the, SEND TO: menu?

Start, Run and type sendto.

Then File, New, Shortcut and browse/select the D drive.

but did you miss something out?

I am using XPpro and there is no such entry in All Programs

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Sendto. Put a shortcut to your D drive in here.

Go to My Computer, right click drive D, select Properties/Recording and put a tick in the Enable cd recording box then apply.

AS nobody seams to be pointing you in the right direction. Open Windows Explorer, Click + by Documents and Settings, Click your name, you should now see in the right column Send To folder, "right click the D drive" in the left column and drag onto Send To folder choose create shortcut

Add to the 'Send To' Menu click here "The Send To menu is simply a folder. Put a shortcut in the folder, and it will be on the menu. You can right-drag a file or folder to the Send To folder and select Create Shortcut(s) Here to put a shortcut to that item on the menu, too (see FIGURE 1).

So where is the Send To folder? In Windows 9 x and Me, the folder path is C:\Windows\SendTo. In Windows 2000 and XP, the path is C:\Documents and Settings\ username\SendTo, where username is your user name for the computer.

In Windows 2000, Me, and XP, Send To is a hidden folder. To view hidden folders, open Windows Explorer, select Tools, Folder Options, click the View tab, select Show hidden files and folders, and click OK. "
