picasa ?

Hi, can somebody please explain now that I have downloaded a software being Nero start smart, and it works ok, I find I am having problems now when I want to make a back up disc in Picasa, because when I try a panel comes up and says `ERROR, No recordable drives detected` Is this something to do with Nero or just a coincidence?, and how can I revert back to using Picasa when I want. Thanks for any help.

Go to My Computer>right click on the rewriter drive being used>Properties>tick the Enable CD/DVD recording on this drive option (CD or DVD will depend on whether the drive is a CD DVD rewriter)>click Apply and then OK.

Hi Stuart, Well I did as you advised and a box came up and choose one of the following; music files, pictures, video files, mixed content, music cd, dvd movie, hd dvd movie, which one should I tick so that I can use Picasa and Nero, or can I only use one? Thanks for any info.

Hi again, I just thought I would try out clicking pictures and when I did and applied, ok, I came out of the drive then returned and it had reverted back to its original position being music files?is this normal?

You've not done it correctly (I was doing it from memory so it's my fault); you need to click on the Recording tab from Properties in your rewriter drive's letter and then tick Enable CD/DVD recordings on this drive.

You have brought up the AutoPlay tab's menu rather than Recording tab.

Hi Stuart, I did exactly as you said, but it does not seem to have made any diff? I tried but it said exactly the same,`no recordable drives detected`

Another way to do it is to use Nero for the burning of the disk - prepare your backup disk in Picasa and then do a Save As (name it in some appropriate form).

In Nero you should Browse for the file(s) and burn them.

If you use Multisession mode in Nero you can use a CD-R or DVD-R until the disk is full (don't forget to Save the multisession folder after each burning session otherwise it will not work properly afterwards).

Thanks Stuart, but when you have over a 1000`s photo`s it makes it diff to complete back every so often if I have to transfer all for Nero to back up?

Hi Stuart, I have done what you said and it works ok, so thanks for all the help you have given, and I have stuck with Nero, Thanks
