How to get photos on to a cd or dvd

Hi can anyone give me a simple guide on how to get some photos from my pc onto a cd or dvd? Is it just the same process? The easier and quicker the better. Thanks in advance...

Start>Right click on My computer>Properties>Hardware>Device manager>Any exclamation mark or question mark on the listing?

Expand the CD-ROM line, uninstall the CD-ROM by right clicking on it and Uninstall and restart the computer.
Now try again by drag and drop.

Have you removed any burning software ?

A few things to try:

Missing cd/dvd drives can be normally associated with the removal of burning software such as Nero/Roxio/Sonic/Easy CD Creator etc.
And not showing the drive in My Computer.

If it is showing an error code:

Then follow these directions for clearing the Upper/Lower Filters: (might want to print this out)

1. Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedit' followed by the enter key ( if Vista Start search or windows+R )
2. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double clicking it (or
3. clicking the "+" next to it.)
4. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key
5. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key
6. Expand the "Control" Key
7. Expand the "Class" Key

11. Please exit the registry by clicking on the "X" in the top right hand corner of the screen

Reboot your computer

.If in any doubt editing the registry,please create a System Restore point first and also backup your registry....The guidedhelp from Microsoft on backing up the registry is a good lesson for anyone to learn. click here

Creating a System Restore point:

Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore…follow the prompts.
