    Burning to CD


    I can transfer items from documents to the E drive, but when I get them there it won't burn them to the CD. I know the CD is good, I can read what's already on it. I know the disc isn't full, the amount on it is less than 50MB. But when I click on the burn to disc command, nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    :)

    Burning to CD

    What type of CD are you using? A CD-R is a one time burn media by default. Most burning programs finalize a CD-R disc after burning the session.
    CD-RW discs can be burned multiple times, If you do not Finalize a CD-RW disc, you can add files to it again later but the disc will not be read on any other CD player until it is Finalized. Once Finalized, you cannot add files to it. CD-RW discs can be "Formatted" and then re-used.
    If you plan on adding files to backup media over a stretch of time consider using a USB Flash Drive, which can add files to at any time and can be formatted (erased) and used again

    I do not recommend using RW discs. RW discs and packet writing method is the least reliable. I used to work the Dell forums and we would get many posts about problems with RW discs and packet writing losing format and/or data.

    If its worth saving to a disc, use a CD-R and a regular burning program. The free CDBurnerXP will do the job.

    It is a RW disc. It caught me by surprise because I assumed if it would read it, it would also write on it. There seem to be a lot of programming missing on Win10 that was on Win7.

    I wanted to save to disc because my home printer is not working. I want to take it to work and print there, but I have to have it on some form of media I can carry. I can't easily save to a flash drive either, because my computer only has two front ports, and both are full, with the Wi-Fi and wireless mouse.

    Burning to CD

    Your desktop computer should have a lot more USB ports in the back. If you have run out of USB ports, get a USB Hub. If you have one document you want to print at work, Email it to yourself.
    If you want something that is easy to carry, there is nothing more simple and convenient then a USB Flash drive. If you must burn to disc, then burn once to a CD-R disc and throw it away afterwards.

    I did email it to myself at work. I have to wait for an opportunity to print it since I don't work on a computer. I have a flash drive, but none of the ports in the back fit. I tried plugging my external storage in there, but all the open ones are too big. My other alternative is to plug the wired mouse back in, it goes in the back, and use the open front port for the flash drive. Or get my printer working.

    Desktop USB ports should all be the same size? And all USB ports front and back should fit any USB Device.

    Couldn't you just unplug the Wi-Fi adapter long enough to copy the file to the flash drive?

    Wouldn't that disconnect me from the internet?

    You must have tried to plug into something other than the back USB ports.

    All regular USB ports (1.0., 20., 3.0, 3.1) are the same size, except for USB C, which is much smaller.

    If you could share the make/model of the PC with us (or the motherboard, if it's a home built or whitebox PC), we could give more detailed help.

    I'd normally suggest plugging the mouse and WiFi adapter into rear USB ports, as you'd rarely need to access the ports for them.

    Yes it would. It wouldn't take that long to copy your file to the flash drive. When done plug your Wi-Fi adapter back in. I also recommend getting a usb hub.

    The computer is an HP Model 450-A114. It has two small and one large USB ports on the front. I see no small ones at all on the back. I sent the document I wanted to save to my work email and was able to print it there. I will take a flash drive or CD in later and save from there, the computers are still on Win7.
