i am trying to backup some important files because i need to reformat and for some reason when i click on the link "write these files to cd" all i get is a classic xp error/warning, dull "dong" sound and no wizard appears. of course this had to happen before i got a chance to backup. can anyone help please

update- instead of dragging the files onto the CD-R window i thought i would try copying and pasting them in and then right clickin to write to cd, BUT it won't let me paste into that window....what is going on? :confused: :(

You should be able to run whatever program you have to burn CD's, select the option to create a data CD, and then add the files you want to copy.

Hi, i was just using whatever it is that comes with xp nothing flashy and i don't know what, maybe roxio but there was nothing in my program files, anyway all is fine now. i just downloaded a trial for some cd burning program and used that, now i have done a system restore using the restore disks i got with the pc and everything is going well.

pain in the *** reinstalling stuff though, i hate that and putting the right files in the right place. keeps me busy tho....thanks stantley :)
