If that doesn't work, you may need to download a program that lets you burn data. There a free one atSurreal2 said:Have you tried putting a blank CDR into the drive, clicking on the burner drive letter and then opening the directory where the photos are and just dragging them over to the CDR?
Share your method with us. I might like yours better as long as you can increase the thumbnail size.I use different methods to the ones Slipe describes but the essence is the same: keep an easy to use record on the computer of what is on each CD
I doubt you'll like it better because it's based on different principles. I don't need a visual record so I don't save thumbnails. All I want is a text catalogue of all the images that I've archived to CD and removed from the PC.slipe said:Share your method with us.

LOL..yeah, if I had to rename all the pix that would be a pain but I don't. My system is specific to my needs...just to clarify, most of the images are work related. Each folder is named by client/job/jobdate. Within each folder I will already have checked through the images and decided which ones to use for a project, processed those through the graphics prog as needed and then saved them with a descriptive name. If I need to re-use them, in most cases I'll know that, having already selected the best, I just need to go through the ones with the descriptive names. If I want to choose a different one I'll just go through them all...to speed that process up I often open the graphics prog but also have the folder window open (set to web page view), so I can quickly move through the images and see the small thumbnails in the folder window, so I only need to open any 'interesting' shots with the graphics prog.slipe said:Thanks for the reply. That indeed wouldn?t work for me as I am too lazy to title the pictures so I know what they are.
That does sound interesting...I'll check it out...many thanks for the tip.slipe said:If you haven?t tried EXIF Image Viewer it is excellent for quickly seeing what is in a CD. It generates the thumbs extremely fast ? even from a full CD. I think it uses the thumbs in the EXIF rather than generate them like some other programs do. It is also great for quickly finding something on the computer. It will search all sub-folders of a folder you select. I haven?t seen another program that will do that. http://home.pacbell.net/michal_k/exif_v.html
