CD Burning in Vista

By AndyW360 ·
I have a customer who cannot drop files to the CD burning window, when the CD is inserted, it formats and you can drag files from an explorer window to the CD burning window but when you drop the files they don't appear in the CD burning window.

I have tried various things including removing other burning software and deleting the upper and lower filters.

Anyone have any ideas why this happens ?

Re: CD Burning in Vista

Are you sure on the your question about the "cd". If it does a "format" when you place in a cd then it will not burn because it has already been burnt by the "format" operation. If you mean the dvd ? RW then you need nero or Cyberlink to do a real good burn but remember that you will need the "Vista" version of these two NOT XP. I hope this helps you.

Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.

I admit I don't know either

But I can tell you that I couldn't be bothered trying to make it work in Vista and I already had Nero which does the job without any fuss.

When I say format, I mean . . .

by AndyW360 In reply to Re: CD Burning in Vista

When I say format, I mean when you insert the CD Vista will ask you to format and name it, once that is done you can not drop files to the CD burning window in explorer.

Are you sure that the disk in question is not...

A DVD-ram?. This disk (when loaded in to the drive) will bring up the box in question that you are on about.

Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.

Let me explain

by AndyW360 In reply to highlight the fils

The disc in the drive is a normal CDR, you cannot drag and drop the files, when you drop them they do not appear in the CD window full stop, they just will not appear, as you drag from say your documents folder they appear ghosted out like normal during the drag and then when you let them go on the CD window they disappear, copy and paste does not work either !

Any ideas, anyone ?
