I just bought my first pack of CD-RW's. I went for a Packard Bell Brand for quality (I hope).
The problem is, I don't really know how to use them. I burned some of my work onto a disk last week and today, I wanted to add more to the disk as it wasn't full. I couldn't burn anything! It kept bringing up:
'Error copying file or folder: Cannot create or replace (file name): Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.'
The disk is not full, the files i'm trying to copy isn't in use and I don't remember putting any kind of write protection on.
The first time, I simply put the disk in the drive and dragged a folder of work onto it. Should I of prepared the disk or something before using it?
I can't even delete the old data. It says the files on the CD is read-only.
I agree with maj CD/RWs are unstable but I back up daily to two different CD/RWs which means if one fails I have another copy. I have not had a failure yet (touch wood). Although CDRs are cheap yesterdays CDR is todays coaster.
