Burning Pictures onto CD

Post by c2N1Ymlla2 » Thu, 06 Mar 2008 14:38:06


I have Windows XP and have tried unsuccessfully to transfer (burn)
pictures that I have on my computer to a disk. I keep getting a
message "Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this
folder. What would you want windows to do?" Then I have my choices
of Retry, Stop or Cancel. I have followed the directions of going
into My Computer and highlighting the file to be sent to the CD but
it does not work.

I have tired to find answers in the Help but there is nothing
pertaining to the message that I have been getting every time I try
to burn pics onto the CD.

I have read posts from others with similar problems and I follow the
directions that were given to them but I still get the same message.
What am I doing wrong?

If you don't have Microsoft NET, get version 3.xxxx of the above program.

Perhaps you need to use the CD burning software that came with your burner?

uite easy to use XP to copy pictures to CD, just check the steps below.

To copy photos to CD-R or CD-RW using XP. (05-08-06)



1.. Insert a blank CD-R (or CD-RW) into your CD drive. Wait about 15-20
seconds for XP to recognize that a CD-R has been inserted. A window may
open, with a variety of options in it or no option in it. You don't need any
of the options in this window to copy to a CD-R. There is a Cancel button at
the bottom of this window. Click on it to close this window or click on the
red X square at the top right. If this window does not open, this is fine
just go to step 2.
2.. Click on My Computer and navigate to the folder where your pictures
are located. Open the folder so you can see the files you want to copy.
3.. You now need to select the files you want to copy. Do you want to copy
all the files in the folder? If so, hold the Ctrl key down and press the
letter A. This will select (highlight in blue) all the files in the folder.
If you want to select only some of the files, click on the first file you
want to select. Remove your finger from your mouse and move the mouse
pointer over the second file, hold the Ctrl key down and click on the second
file you want to select. Continue doing this until all the files you want to
copy are selected. Each time a file is selected it will be highlighted in
blue. If the files you want to select are listed in a row, you can do it
this way. Click on the first file, remove your finger from the mouse and
move the mouse pointer over the last file. Hold the Shift key down and click
on the last file you want. All the files between the first and last file you
clicked on will be highlighted in blue.
4.. Once you have selected the files you want to copy, look at the menu on
the left of the selected files. The top menu should be "Picture Tasks". The
last item listed under "Picture Tasks" is "Copy to CD". Click on it. The
other way is to right click on one of the selected pictures. A menu will
open. Click on Send To. Click on your CD drive on the opening list.
5.. The copying process will start (a small window opening at the top of
your screen indicating the progress, wait until completed, also you may not
see this window if you are copying just a few files because the operation is
too fast) and you will get a message, right hand corner bottom of your
screen, "You have files waiting." Click on it.
6.. A window will open. It will show you the photo files you just selected
to copy. Look at the menu on the left and click on "Write these files to CD".
7.. A Wizard box will open. Just follow the directions on the screen to
complete the job.
8.. Once you have copied the photos to the CD you may want to copy more to
it in the future. Just insert it instead of inserting a blank CD and follow
the same directions. Just make sure you have enough space on it to add more
photo files. A CD will hold 700 MB but with photo files, don't try to fill
it. Limit to about 200 - 300 photo files per CD and not more than a total of
600 MB. Otherwise it can take a long time to open this CD to view the files,
but if you don't mind the time you can fill it.
9.. During copying, you may get the following messages "File XXXX.jpg has
extra information..." or "The thumbnails information will be lost..." In
both cases, click on YES, not on Skip, in the message box.


Some problems with the above:

I thought that XP had it's own burning capabilities and wouldn't need to use
another source just XP.

Along with your instructions I followed the directions that I found for XP
and tried 3 times each and had the same results as before.

Insert a blank, writable CD into the CD recorder.
Open My Computer.
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.

In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then click
Copy.
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.
Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write these files to CD. Windows displays the
CD Writing Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard.
Notes

To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.
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. For more information, click Related
Topics.

I also looked in the My Computer and checked to see if the device was
working properly and it was. All the checks that were to be checked were.

In my experience (and it seems, yours) this method (described by Yves) is
extremely unreliable and prone to errors.

Jim is right.

XP program always gives this error when you try to copy some disks from the
computer using windows.

However you can use Burning softwares like Nero, Roxio or Sonic

I tried to post this message before. I was not sure if it took..
"Can anyone tell me why I would lose the pictures that I moved to a cd? I
know how to copy or move items by clicking on the commands on the left side
of a window. At first I thought I put it in a wrong folder but a search of
my computer didn't show that. It seemed that the pictures just got lost.

Which free burner would that be?

Win2000 has built-in CD burning capability.

So many users of this NG have had the same problem.
Simple answer is to download CDburnerXP Pro.
It's freeware, very versatile and you'll find it on Google.
Version 4 require MS NET, but V3.xxx works very well if you don't have NET.

HTH, Jim,

I just read this thread and went to Google to download CDburnerXP Pro. I
don't know if I have MS NET or not - using Win XP Pro OS, meet all other
requirements for download.

The link to older versions of CDburnerXP PRO would not work.

How can I determine if I have MS NET?
