    First, make sure it is not Read-Only (right-click, Properties). If you are trying to save the whole database, then you should be able to save as to the CD. If you are trying to just save a table (or some other portions of the database), make a blank database and import those items into it.
    Good luck.

    You can't save the database on the file menu. Either go to the location and copy the file and paste it or and I don't know what software you use for you CDRW but most let you choose (depending on the type of Burn you select) the file to add to the disk.
