It may just be that that is the speed of your drive.  See if it says on the drive how fast it is.  If it is too slow, then you may want to consider getting a newer, faster drive.

You can just click and drag individual file or folders to your cd or dvd and windows will burn (copy) them. What I normally do is I check the size of the items that I want to copy so I'll know exactly how many disks (cd or dvd) i will need. Have fun!

The dvd does not burn in the tright forward way by copy and paste the files. It does however only by using software.


Do you have XP? Are you trying to burn a DVD Disc or CD/R Disc?
XP does not burn DVD discs on its own, a third party software is required for this task.

Why cant I write onto my blank DVD disk I have windows XP and DVD R in my DELL writable drive.Im trying to copy about 1 gig of JPEGS onto the disk. The disc is MAXELL 4.75 GB DVD R. Im using windows XP....


It doesn't matter what name or brand the disc is. All it matters that it is a writable disc. If you had aldready written previous files on that DVD disc and then it was compiled, it wont write again. When the computer requests to compile a disc, say no, otherwise you wont be able to write more data on the same disc. The same goes if you have selected a CD to burn. There are 3 ways to do so. Try copy and paste, drag and drop the file to the DVD icon or CD icon, or right click on the file to be burned and select 'Send to...' choose the DVD drive, (D:), see what happens.
