E & F drives on my computer not accessible

By joefar ·
I cannot save anything to my E (DVD Rom) or F (my CD Writer) Drives on my Compaq computer. I have windows 98 installed on it. Every time I try to save a picture or a file to a disk it says "F:\is not accessible. The device is not ready. What is wrong with my CD drives? I sure could use some help.

Saving things

You'll never be able to save anything to a DVD-ROM drive. ROM stands for Read Only Memory. As far as your F: drive is concerned, you'll need to burn data to it using a program from the likes of Roxio or Nero (there are others) You'll also need burnable disks.
