I have tried copying documents and Quicken data both to a DVD+R disk and a CD-RW disk, but get the message; "unable to access the disk in drive D. Please make sure thedrive is ready and the disk is not write-protected". What am I doing wrong? I'm using HP Home, and had thought I could use these disks where on my old computer I used floppies. It's obviously not as simple as that or as I had imagined!
Totally-braindead's pseudonym would be more appropriate for me. In reply to his/her question, which isn't at all silly, the answer is, I don't know. In answer to Smiler, HP was a slip of the pen, so to speak. I meant XP. I will try the Nero idea. Thank you to both.
Hamish I, there is no point in looking at Nero or any other sofware burning program if you do not have a DVD or CD burner. They usually tell you on the burner just above where the disk tray is. Come back with this answer.
