Digital pics to Cd-RW

  hendog 16:00 19 Nov 2004

I can download my digital pics into a folder on the Pc, and can burn them to a CD-R for commercial printing. For reasons of economy I would prefer to burn to CD-RW but the pc says "no can do". Can anybody explain why??

You can do it in NERO the pics are better if JPEG and your DVD player as to support Pic's

The pics are jpg format. The screen message is:
"ERROR COPYING FILE OR FOLDER. cannot copy Dsc00032(that is the pic number) the disk is write protected.
Remove write protection or use another disk"
A brand new disk makes no difference.

I am using Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD vers. 8 software.

Are the pictures your trying to put on CD-RW already on a disc or are they on your computer?

They are on the computer. No problem transferring from the camera to pc, or from pc to cd-r. No go with Cd-rw.

you cannot copy to CD-RW disc directly unless you format it use a packet writting program. Nero has InCD, Roxio has DirectCD, do not know what is similar program with Pinnacl.

Another way is just treat CD-RW as CD-R and burn it the same way. If you want to use again, just erase it and use again.

This may be a speed incompatibility between the writer and the blank disc. Can you burn anything to a CD-RW, a small file, for instance.

just a thought, are you trying to copy from a CDR as this maybe reason protected, need to "save as" onto hardisk. Check if files are read only (via properties) and change to archive.
Assume Cd-rw are blank and work normally, have you tried different media? If new media could be
cd-rw drive not recognising and firmware needs updating.

I've had this happen 3 or 4 times with Oak SimpliCD. It seems that somehow the files have become corrupted. I was able to get round it by opening the original file taken from the camera (had been downloaded to the computer as a TIFF)and resizing it and saving it with another name. One time changing it to a JEPG did the trick. You might give it a try.

As above use NERO data file. it will create a ISO that will run on your DVD
