I'm on XP Home.

I've backed up folders onto CD's before using the standard procedure but now
I always get the reject message "There was an error in the writing process.
The disc you have attempted to write may no longer be usable." even though
I've tried new and partly full discs several times.

They include music, picture & programme folders. How can I copy the latest
ones to CD?

You need to put in a new blank disk. if that does not work get new rewrite
drive.

Hi, Tim;

If the above doesn't help in finding and fixing the problem, please post
