I recently downloaded the SP2 upgrade for XP and am no longer able to copy files, most notably image type files (.JPEG) and also MS Word/Excell files (.doc, .xls) to a CD using the native XP copy function. I haven't realy tried to copy other file types. SOME files will copy but many will not. The message received is " Windows encountered an error when trying to copy this folder. What do you want Windows to do? " Looked on Microsoft pages but was unable to find any discussion or fixes there. Any suggestions? Where to start looking for the problem?

Interesting, the only remotely close documentation is for some types of .doc or rtf files.

I've made the registry edit and for SOME .doc files (not all) I am still left with this error:

Microsoft Word 97 Conversion
unable to load graphics conversion filter. Continue with document conversion?
Hit yes long enough and eventually the text portion of the document will open, but without the graphics.

I don't seem to have a problem copying normal jpegs though.
