Information loss when copying files?

  julia23 22:02 30 Jan 2006

Hi all,

I downloaded AVG and Zone Alarm to give to a friend who has just got a computer. I wanted to install these for her before she went on the net.
When copying these files to CD I got a message saying something like 'some information may be lost but the file won't be impaired???' Do you want to proceed. I am not sure of the exact wording.
Could anyone be kind enough to tell me what info is lost and will the files still be OK

Thank you

Sounds more like the message that appears when copyin g NTFS to FAT file systems, CD uses a different file system again - as long as the original files were burned and verified, nothing to worry about.

Thank you.
I downloaded to my documents and then copied to CD. I am using NTFS Win XP. I just wondered if the files were still OK. I am not sure about being verified.

If XP didn't throw up any errors during the actual CD burn process all is well.
