hello this is charley.im having a problem downloading programs on my cd burner. before i have always used drive d to download. but now when i try to download i get a message saying (this file is on a network drive with create but no modify privileges _ask the network to change this condition) if any one has a cd burnner and might know if i need to change my settings or might have a suggestion let me know. i have tried to reinstall my software but this did not help.

Are you using a formatted Rewritable CD or a regular CD-R I am not sur you can write from the OS with a regular CD-R unless it is formatted for packet writing.

Start>Settings>Control Panel>Network and set the Primary Network Logon to “Windows Logon”. If it is already set that way look in your packet writing software to see if there are not settings. Only DirectCD should have a non-modify type mode with variable length packet writing. Change it to fixed packets. You can only write to RW in that mode. If you have changed from RW to CDR media with DirectCD it might cause that problem.

I take it you have a formatted CD if you are able to download directly to the CD. That isn’t a very secure way to keep data as you will lose the table of contents if you have a lockup or power failure while the CD is in the drive. You can’t read the CD in that case unless you have a newer packet writing program that came with an explorer data recovery applet. It is a hassle even then.

It is best to make a download folder on your C drive and record stuff from there. Preferably with mastering rather than packet writing software.
