i know this sounds very stupid but i cant seen to find a way to put a set of pictures onto a blank CD-R? I have got windows xp pro. any ideas??

I take it you have a cd writer.

I have no problem burning my pics to a normal cd-r and watching on the dvd player connected to my tv.All i use is windows drag and drop to the drive of the cd-r.

Insert cd-r into drive
Find the photo folder you wish to burn
Right click this folder
Send to the cd-r drive

You have now sent the pics to your cd-r

(Or this way)

My Computer
Double click the cdrw drive (this will now sit in your task bar)
Goto the photo folder
Click on the folder and drag to the cdrw drive sitting in your taskbar.

You have now sent the photos to the disc.

All assuming you have Windows XP

Sorry just noticed you said xp pro.

thanks but when i right click on the folder or the picture and go to send to , there is no Cd-R. and the other idea, when i double click on the cd drive (which has a blank cd init ) it says "D:/ is not accessible. Incorrect function."
?? any idea?

what happens if you double left click, id the drive shown there?

Right click the drive from My computer/select properties/enable cd recording.
Is your drive collecting the right info from the right drive (ie:local drive:C)
