well i finally did it, not sure how but i have.

no my problem is that i cant seem to get photos off my computer and onto the childrens rewritable cd's! (i have one for each child) i started them last week and put lots of photos on but now cant seem to add the latest ones on.

never mind im sure i will work it out in a week or so :laughing:

Sounds familiar! I tried , tried again - then gave up and got them done at asda from the memory card. Ok it costs more and you cant update them but it saved my sanity! im possibly the most computer illiterate person i know.

Are the CDs full so if you move a bunch of photos they stop working?

Have you tried moving just one photo at a time?

Is there a problem with your CD drive? Do other CDs play in it ok?

Can the system see the CDs ok? Are they in 'my computer'?

Lots of things might be going wrong but once you have the photos on desktop they should just pick up and drop.

If they don't, then you need to first try a different CD as one in about 40 can be faulty.

Hth :D

sounds stupid but i am having trouble opening the cd's so that i can drag photos into the window. i open them up through windows and it starts a slide show! which is all very nice but not what i want! :laughing:

Put the CD in.

Go to my computer.

Look there for the CD on the CD drive.

Double click to open it.

What happens? :D
