I have files on cd-rw, mainly word & Excel files. Each time I edit a file and try to save ,the word/excel does not allow me to save back to the CD-RW & states that the file is Read only. At the moment, I have to save the file to hard disk then copy back to CD_RW with Nero software.
Is there a method which will allow me to save/replace directly to CD-RW ?
Hi I do not know if this is of any help. I have a desk top and a lap top and so that I can see files on either I save all my documents to a memory stick which I back up to another stick each week I tried the same system with disc's but it did not work so well I keep very little on hard disc. I use the same system for saving pictures but in this case I do back up all original pictures to a disc. Hope this helps gel
Use a CD-R in multisession mode in Nero until it is full rather than CD-RW disks which, due to the technology required, have a far lower level of reflectivity than the CD-R disks and therefore prove difficult for some optical drives to read.
I agree with the others, I no longer use CDRW after losing some files I had backed up to it. They are very unreliable, CDRs are a different kettle of fish, as has been said just use them as a multisession disk and you can keep adding till its full. I also tried InCD and found that a bit wonky even with CDRs so to my mind the multisession idea is a lot better. Incidently bearing in mind how easily RW disks corrupt if theres anything on the disk that you don't have backed up elsewhere I would back them up now to be safe.
