Someone I know recently had a PC break down, but the hard drive fortunately was left intact. They have since purchased a new one, however I have been entrusted with moving all the data, mainly photos from their hard drive onto a DVD for them. I think I know what I'm doing, but I have a nasty habit of running into these things without thinking them through. So I though I'd put a post here asking people what they thought would be the best way to do this task.
Thanks

What I would do is simply drag and select all the files you want to transfer from hard disk to DVD , right click the highlighted files , choose copy.
Then go to "my computer" find the drive which contains the blank disk , open the drive by double clicking it , the right click and paste.

Failing that just drag all the files onto the blank DVD drive , it will automatically create copies and leave the originals on the hard drive.

as for vista, I haven't a clue....if it's in xp, chances are very high it's in vista as well. My wife's lappy is vista (what I'm on now), but I'm still breaking it, so haven't gotten around to the 'fixing' part yet. :)
