Hi everyone! I am new to this message board.

I have probably a couple thousand JPEGs on my hard drive that I uploaded from my digital camera, and now I would like to burn these JPEGs to a DVD. (I would prefer burning them to one DVD as opposed to six or seven CDs.)

I have a Compaq Presario 3200 that came with Windows XP, a DVD-Writer/CD-Writer combo that came in the top drawer, and a preloaded program called "Sonic Record Now" version 6.7.0.

I have used the Record Now program to burn JPEGs to CD and had no problem. I just inserted a Memorex DVD-RW 4.7 gig and tried to burn about 3 gig of pictures onto it. A popup window keeps telling me to insert a blank DVD. I tried a couple more new DVDs but it keeps doing the same thing.

What am I doing wrong? Should I be using DVD-R instead of DVD-RW? Is the Sonic Record Now program no good for what I am trying to do? If so, any suggestions of any other programs I could use? You can burn JPEGs or any other data onto a DVD, can't you?

I am not trying to record video or a slideshow or anything like that. Just plain old JPEGs that were uploaded from my digital camera.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Mark

It appears to me from what you've said that you've put the wrong type of disk in. You said your disk is a DVD-RW and from what I see about the Compaq Presario 3200 it has a DVD+ drive which means you need to get a DVD+RW or a DVD+R. If you put the wrong type of media in you just get a message telling you to insert a disk, it won't tell you that the one you've inserted is incorrect.

I made the same mistake when I bought my first DVD burner! Now I have one of each format!
