    Saving Files (Windows XP)

    I have never had trouble saving to my "a" drive, the flopy disk.
    But I wanted to start saving material to a CD.
    I have two drives for this D and E. The "D" seems to be for DVDs.
    When I tried to save either and excel or a word file to the E drive it said I didn't have access.
    I must be doing something wrong.
    How do I save to the E drive or how do I save to the CD (the same in my mind, maybe mistakenly)

    Try Saving files to CD-R or CD-R/W from Webtree.

    Re: Saving Files to CD (Windows XP)

    To avoid file corruption, it is best to close Office document files and drag them to the CD from Windows Explorer to make a copy. Particularly with Word, which creates and manages numerous temporary files during editing, opening from and saving back to removable media can create problems (and it's way slower than using the hard drive during editing).
