    Sending pictures to an existing CDR


    I used XP for almost fourteen years without a problem. Now that I have windows10 I haven't been able to add pictures to exist8ing cd's. No problems with data or music. I also cannot view the picture CD's. I double click burn to disc but nothing happens. I get a list but no way to view it. I get a notice,these files are ready....etc. but when I click on a folder to transfer new contents...nothing happens. I'm at a loss on how to procede. Any step by step would be greatlyb appreciated.

    May need a third party application to do a better job or create a slideshow, take a look here for moving files to CD or DVD.

    Thanks. I tried that earlier and nothing worked. I'll try again later tonight and see what happens.

    Burnaware won't make a slideshow but has many features to burn to disc and a free version if it can help you better.

    By definition a CD-R is Recordable, once, then it becomes a CD-ROM [Read Only Memory]. There are programs can can format a CD-R and use it as a multi-session but considering the cost of discs [less than the old floppies] I've never found that process to be totally satisfactory. A CD-RW disc is ReWriteable, can be erased and used again and sometimes added to.

    I missed the part of CD-R myself.

    I really miss XP. Transferring was so simple. All I did was click send to the CD and everything went. Then just click files ready to send to CD and that's it. Windows 10 is not an improvement and I'm still in the dark as to how to do something that used to be do simple. I alwqays added to the CDR since everything was meant to be permanent. Maybe I'm missing something but so far I'm haven't figured it out.

    I always used 3rd party programs for burning CDs, Windows were always too basic with very little control.
    Btw, you can ad files to CD only if session was not closed and there's more space than needed. With some brands of CDs and machines, you could "Overburn" them and than few more MBs could be added.
