Max, when you re-loaded Nero, did it give you options on what you want copied from the disc?

Alan, I have just played a DVD, a CD with .wav files, a normal CD.  It will rip and burn audio CDs.  It just won't copy pictures.  When I launch any of the many versions of Nero I have, it will only deal with audio and or video files.  If I put a blank CD or DVD it asks me to insert a disc, because the disc is blank.

There seems to be something blocking picture files, as there are no options to copy to a CD on any of the picture files.  They are in .jpeg format, so they should work, but they just won't.

when I re-loaded Nero, it only had audio or video options available.

I'm beginning to think there is something not right with the pictures, but I haven't worked out how to test that theory, as all I have at present are pictures from the same camera.

I'm going to fire up my external hard drive.  There are some pictures there from Wendy's camera.  We'll see if they are any different.

I have XP Home edition & this is in the Help & Support

[url=ms-its:C:WINDOWSHelpcdmedia.chm::/HELP=glossary.hlp TOPIC=writable_cd]writable CD[/url] into the CD recorder.


  • Open [url=ms-its:C:WINDOWSHelpcdmedia.chm::/EXEC=,EXPLORER.EXE, ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} CHM=ntshared.chm FILE=alt_url_windows_component.htm]My Computer[/url].
  • Click the files or folders you want to ccopyopy to the CD. To select more than one file, hold down the CTRL key while you click the files you want. Then, under File and Folder Tasks, click Copy this file, Copy this folder, or Copy the selected items. If the files are located in My Pictures, under Picture Tasks, click Copy to CD or Copy all items to CD, and then skip to step 5.

  • In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then click Copy.
  • In My Computer, double-click the CD recording drive. Windows displays a temporary area where the files are held before they are copied to the CD. Verify that the files and folders that you intend to copy to the CD appear under Files Ready to be Written to the CD.
  • Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write these files to CD. Windows displays the CD Writing Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard. [/list] Notes

    • To open My Computer, double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop.
    • Do not copy more files to the CD than it will hold. Standard CDs hold up to 650 megabytes (MB). High-capacity CDs hold up to 850 MB.
    • Be sure that you have enough disk space on your hard disk to store the temporary files that are created during the CD writing process. For a standard CD, Windows reserves up to 700 MB of the available free space. For a high-capacity CD, Windows reserves up to 1 gigabyte (GB) of the available free space.
    • After you copy files or folders to the CD, it is useful to view the CD to confirm that the files are copied. For more information, click Related Topics.
     

    I think the above uses the Inbuilt CD Writing Wizard of Windows, not Nero
  • Note the word Copy is now blank. actually now white

    where a cd is concered it does not matter if they are audio pictures files or whatever they should copy

    your file format can be anything it could be a picture.max format it would still copy

    All the cd does its a storage area it does nothing with whatever you put on there.

    A daft question but for some reason whatever you use as photo package this does not set permissions on the file the photo is stored does it so the file cannot be changed or copied for some reason unless you change the permissions?

    This is a long shot and i would be surprised if it did that

    The fact you cant see the cd when its in the drive tells me the problem is either the cd`s you are using or the drive

    cheers Brian

    I don't understand any of that, Sol,  For a start, My Computer doesn't give access to the picture files.

    I can see a CD with data on it when It's in the drive, I just can't see a blank one, Brian.  My laptop behaves the same way.  Both drives can't be stuffed.

    The external hard drive has pictures from different sources.  None of them will copy to a CD.  There is no Copy to CD option when I click on the picture files in the external drive.  Maybe I need to re-load my Office Software?

    Have you got a neighbour who could lend you one of their blank cd`s?

    There is another pack of a different brand up in Wendy's studio.  I'll try them, but I really don't think it's the problem.  The burner works perfectly in all modes except copying pictures.  I might have to reload my Office Software.

    I've tried a blank from another pack.  Still nothing.  I can't believe the blanks aren't compatible, because they record music onto them with this burner.

    I just burnt an audio track on to a blank disc and played it back.  So I think we can forget about hardware problems.  Does anyone else think I should reload my Office driver?

    Max is has to be a simple problem here copying photos to a cd is a very simple everyday thing what format there are should not make any differance its no differant than copying files from one folder or drive to another.

    Can you

    "copy and paste "  your folder with the photos in, to another drive,, ie external, because if you can do that then the problem must be with the drive it's selfhave you tried to burn just a word file, as a test to see if you can do that, hang on, what do you use for burning your music, as that might have set the drive to only work with that programme ?
