    Real one only does audio and video if I am not mistaken. I use Nero and have never had a problem with it. didn't your burner come with any software?

    I haven't located any, it is a work computer and the cd-writer was installed before I joined the company.

    Most burners come with recording software. Do a search for nero, ez (for ez cd creator), b’s (for b’s recorder gold), prassi and nti. If your work computer has XP it has a built in recorder that will do JPG. Record them as normal data whatever you use.

    No. You would need to have saved them on a CD-RW in order to erase them.

    The burn process on a CD-R is permanent. You can add files to a CD-R if the session is not closed but if the session is not closed you cannot view what you have burned to the CD. Kind of a catch 22. What I usually do is accumulate enough Pics together to make good use of the CD space and then burn\close.

    Lola's option of a CD-RW is also nice because you can make changes when necessary.

    I use easy CDCreator from adaptec. once you have a formmated cd (be sure its set for data storage and for any computer to use) then all you have to do is click and drag files using windows explorer
