Cannot copy photos to disc!

  1. I am having real problems copying photos from my pc onto disc.

    I am using XP to do this. Never had the problem before.

    Each time I click 'copy to disc' things go well until the end when I get told that it had a problem and the disc may now be useless. I'm up to disc 6 with this message now.

    On other occassions I am told that it has been sucessful. I think great it has worked at last. I then load the disc to see if the file/pictures are on the disc and nothing happens. The pc knows the disc is there but will not show anything on the screen. I'm up to disc 3 with this happening to me.

    I am using the right discs CD-R as it says on my pc and in 'my computer'

    I have also just opened a new case of discs and am thinking that this might be part of the problem.

    I hope someone can help me with this as I am totally clueless when it comes to computers.

    It is possible you have a faulty pack of cd-r`s, especially since the problem has only occured since opening the new pack.

    Try some different cd-r`s and see if the problem disappears.

    I changed the discs and things seem to be fine now.
    As soon as I put them in I knew it was going to work as the driver sounded totally different.

    Thanks guys.
