    Re: Having Trouble Opening IE (IE6/SP2)

    Does the lounge recommend "upgrading" to IE7?

    Thanks, jscher2000, for the link to the Microsoft suggestions. I never think of looking there; Woody's Lounge is always my first stop!

    Re: Having Trouble Opening IE (IE6/SP2)

    Well, never! However, I started with a brand-new hard drive in February. Prior to that, I used this computer for (literally) years without doing that kind of system maintenance. Not a techie, I...

    Paul, I did say earlier that I was using what another poster characterized as the native Windows XP burner. When I next try to save something, I will note -- and then report -- the full text of the...

    Re: Can't Add Files to a CD-RW

    Thanks again, Joe. It's so puzzling because my usage pattern is simply not being able to add anything to some discs the second time I use them! Then, as mentioned before, others do allow me to add,...

    Re: Can't Add Files to a CD-RW

    Joe, I guess I think of a back-up hard drive as being used truly to back up a computer, operating system and all. I thought CDs (I have RW) were meant for exactly the purpose I'm trying to use them...

    Re: Can't Add Files to a CD-RW

    Bob, I just checked, and "Erase this CD" is supposed to be an option under "CD Writing Tasks." I haven't tried it yet, but I will. Thanks for all your help!

    Re: Can't Add Files to a CD-RW

    Native XP burner, I guess. Just doing it through "Explore" -- copying files from C drive to a CD-RW in the D drive.

    So, I might have more luck by "erasing" the disk, and resaving everything? If...

    Re: Print Disk Directories? (XP5.1;ServicePack2)

    Is there really no way built into XP, to allow this? Doesn't it seem like something people might actually want to use occasionally?! Thank you for the tip, Big Al. I guess I am off to Karen's!
