I can no longer copy pictures to CD from "My Pictures" using Windows XP. I used to be able to awhile ago. I have tried everything to get it back. A couple of days ago, when I put in the CD and clicked "copy to CD" it would give me a box in the top left hand corner that said "copy here." It didn't seem to recognize that I even had a CD in the drive. After researching, I then thought it was a conflict with Roxio, so I thought maybe if I deleted Roxio it would work. No. So then I reinstalled Roxio from my recycling bin. Now when I try to copy to CD there is not even an option to "Copy to CD". If I try to get around that by then using the "copy folder" option and scrolling to choose where to copy, it doesn't give me the option to use my CD drive. Help!!!!

Make sure the recording option is turned on:
Right-click the drive/Properties/Recording
The "Send to" option always works for me:
Select the files you want to copy, right click the selection, select "SendTo" CD drive

What did you do to create the problem in the first place?
Your difficulty could be related to that and maybe made worse by "deleting" Roxio. It's not possible to "install" programs from the Recycle bin (it can only restore files back to their original locations).
If Roxio was at fault, better to un-install it properly, (from either its own Uninstall option or Settings |Control Panel | Add/Remove Software). Then try a new install.
