Copying files to CD-RW

  rawprawn 16:18 20 Jun 2003

I have always backed up certain files to a CD-RW with no problem. Today I was warned that my CD was faulty & needed replacing, I reformatted another ready for drag & drop but I can't seem to copy the files. I get files waiting to be written to cd, but when I ask it to write the files I get the message that there is no cd in the drive. I had to reinstall XP 2 days ago & I am wondering what I have done, I used to just use the send to menu, or drag & drop no problem, any ideas

I have never used CD-RW, but many have, and have posted bitter comments about them. CDR is much more stable and less likely to give bother. Maybe someone can help you to recover the lost files, but it could well be that they have gone for good.
