    I recently created a data c.d. with over 100 files on it .Would anyone know how I could create a List of Contents? I have tried copy function in "detail view" and this works, but I can't paste contents into Excel, "new letter", Microsoft Word , Notepad, Word pad. I was successful in doing a print screen ,this would require several prints.
    The CD is a 700MB CD-RW and I used Adaptec software , the "add contents" to cover did not work. (I doubt you could read 100+ lines) . Ideally 1 full sheet of paper that I could fold and place inside, would be o.k .

    OS windows 200 pro

    You could always use the DIR command from the Command prompt. DIR > File.TXT will create a text file containing the contents of a directory/directories.
    Type Dir /? at command prompt for more options.

    dir /s >filename.txt

    this will list all the files in dir and subdirectories and output to filename.txt
