Putting pictures/graphics on a CD is best to use a CD-RW. That way yo
will be able to edit/delete/add/whatever just like another harddrive. I
you drag&drop or copy&paste to a CD-R you'll only be able to view the
at a later date but cannot delete/edit, etc.

WTF? I don't see how you can make the judgement call on what media
they want to use!

Besides, if they are using the XP native burning tools, it won't
matter if they use a CDR or a CDRW. It will be treated the same, and
as such, they won't be able to edit/delete/add just like a hard drive.
They will only be able to burn sessions or erase the whole thing.

Except in the case of CDr discs of course, can't erase them since they
aren't re-writable.

But nobody has answered the OPs question. Putting picture on a CD is
easy, from the help files (was there some reason the OP couldn't click
on help him/her/it's self?):

To copy files and folders to a CD
1. Insert a blank, writable CD into the CD recorder.

2. Open My Computer.

3. Click the files or folders you want to copy to the CD. To select
more than one file, hold down the CTRL key while you click the files
you want. Then, under File and Folder Tasks, click Copy this file, Copy
this folder, or Copy the selected items.
If the files are located in My Pictures, under Picture Tasks, click
Copy to CD or Copy all items to CD, and then skip to step 5.

4, In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then
click Copy.

5. In My Computer, double-click the CD recording drive. Windows
displays a temporary area where the files are held before they are
copied to the CD. Verify that the files and folders that you intend to
copy to the CD appear under Files Ready to be Written to the CD.

6. Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write these files to CD. Windows
displays the CD Writing Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard.


To open My Computer, double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop.
Do not copy more files to the CD than it will hold. Standard CDs hold
up to 650 megabytes (MB). High-capacity CDs hold up to 850 MB.
Be sure that you have enough disk space on your hard disk to store the
temporary files that are created during the CD writing process. For a
standard CD, Windows reserves up to 700 MB of the available free space.
For a high-capacity CD, Windows reserves up to 1 gigabyte (GB) of the
available free space.
After you copy files or folders to the CD, it is useful to view the CD
to confirm that the files are copied.
