i am going to assume that you are using windows then when you put a cd/dvd in to your disc drive the autoplay should give you the option of creating a data disc or in computor if you right mouse click on the balnk disc there will be an option on the pop up list then you can just drag and drop to the disc image as to the type of disc you need and amount of storage most newish laptops will use cdrw and dvd+r or dvd-r dvd is by far the most economical way of storing as you can get 4.5gb of data onto them and depending on the file size of the pics this will allow you to store several hundred (i have used dvd and managed to store over 1000 photos and short vid clips of 20-30 second onto 4 dvds whereas with cd only holding 700mb you would potentialy need up to 5-6 times as many) so while initially cds are more attractiv on price overall dvd are the best deal and places like wilkinsons or sainsburys sell spindles of 100 dvd for appros £25 i would recommend you use dvd
Right, thanks for that. I've edited the pics and relabelled pictures folders on the laptop and thought I had just dragged and dropped those that I wanted. However, when I took the disc out and put it back in and then selected "view pictures" the disc now seems to have everything in the pictures file from the hard drive including pics I didn't want. How do I view what's on it without having to go through a slide show, and how do I delete off the disc so I can start again, as something has clearly gone awry!
