Assuming you are using XP - Set Folders to show Common Tasks (Ctrl Panel>Folder Option). Put blank CD/DVD in Drive, open My Pictures or folder where pictures are, then choose Pictures to copy and click on Copy to CD (in left-hand pane).

Are your photos stored on your PC hard drive? What format are they - jpeg? By disc do you mean that you want to transfer from the hard drive to a CD or DVD?

What is D:\? On some machines D:\ is the CD/DVD, on others it is a separate partition of your harddrive, sometimes it is a recovery partition.

Can you give us more information on exactly what you did when you get the error?

In that case, you need Nero or similar - and choose to 'Make data CD' follow the on-screen prompts.

Are you using XP's own burning facility?

If so, ensure that from My Computer>Explore>highlight your DVD drive>Properties>Recording tab>Enable Recording on this Device has been ticked.

You can only copy to CDs with XP in this form -Vista is needed for CDs or DVDs.

Here's a free program that will burn CDs or DVDs click here might be worth a try.

I am trying to use XP's own burning facility (I think!)

When I go to My Computer / hightlight the drive / Properties...
I then get the same message -
D:\ is not accessible
Incorrect function

If I hightlight Drive / right click / Properties

it doesn't give me the option of "> Recording Tab...."

XP's own burning facility Turned it off as soon as got XP. It's about as much uses as a rubber Duck
