HOW DO I SAVE A FILE TO A CD-RW DISK? I HAVE A NEW COMPUTER WITH A CD-RW 6 4 24X DRIVE BUT CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SAVE A FILE TO IT!

THANKS

The Answer

It depends on the brand of CD-RW you own.  Many will activate the proper programs if you paste your files to the CD-RW through Windows Explorer.  So insert a new blank CD (by inserting the blank CD it may trigger the format program because you need to format it first before you write to it).  Go to the Start button -> Programs -> Windows Explorer.  Now to test it copy, a file from your hard drive and past it to the CD-RW drive.  This should activate the program to format the blank CDR so you will be able to write to it. If not, there should be a program on your computer that will format the blank CDR and write data to it.  This software should have come pre-installed if your PC is new.  If not, you will need to find out what brand of CD-RW you have so you can download the necessary files and drivers from the manufacturer.
