I am running Windows XP home addition and when I create a short cut from the “My Computer folder” of my DVD or CD rewriter to my desktop by right clicking and creating shortcut. The shortcut appears on the desktop but on clicking it, the browser comes up and cannot locate shortcut. Any ideas

instead of right click/create, open my computer, reduce screen so you can see a little bit of desktop, then scroll to the cd/dvd rom drive you want to move, and with the left mouse button, drag it from my computer to the desktop.

dont worry, it doesnt move it, just creates a shortcut. i just tried it and it works on xp pro.

one more thing, you will need to have a cd in the drive for it to open.

good luck
