I am trying to copy some photos onto cdr. I have tried a few methods but each time i get the message "the requested resource is in use". I would be grateful for any help.

What "few methods" have you tried? What burning program are you using?

Right click on the photo you want to save and you should see the "send to"menu.On my one you can send to the cd player/recorder.If all is working ok that should do it.

What program are you using to burn to CD?

Unless I'm missing something here, have you tried just dragging and dropping from Explorer directly onto your CD icon in Explorer?

I do this all the time often copying huge images (TIFF and RAW) - never any problem using the default copying wizard (windows XP).

However (!), you must not have any viewing software open at the same time that may be trying to read from the same images you are copying.

Thanks for your responses. I starte by trying to copy them using xp "copy all items to cd" option. when i did that i got the error message. I tried doing it through windows explorer - dragging and dropping them - got the same message.

I also used software from digital camera - olympus master. That does not work either. I also tried using Instant CD+DVD. Again, no success.

Tried Right click on the photo you want to save and you should see the "send to"menu - get error message.
