    This is weird! When I finished working on some Word docs, I got my CD out that I always save my work on. It is labeled 'Pers Files'. I inadvertently put it in the CD-ROM, and when I opened My Computer, the disk had a number on it, which it does when you don't label it. I have several that way. Still not realizing that the disk I put in was labeled, I opened it, and much to my surprise, on the screen was the contents of a disk that I haven't had in my drive for 2 months or more. To say the least, I was shocked and bewildered. It was then that I realized that I had put the disk in the wrong drive, so I took it out and put it in the CDRW. This time when I opened it, it showed the right contents. After I finished saving my work, I put the disk back in the other drive and it showed the right contents. I have no earthly idea how the drive read a disk which was in its case in the CD holder. Has anybody ever experienced such as this?
    Also when I went to save my work, since I have direct CD, I right clicked on the doc I wanted to save, went to 'Send to', but the drive F, which was there yesterday, was not there today. How do I put it back in there?
    Computers are weird!
