I put a few picture files on a CD-R so I could save them on a different
computer. I can see the files on the computer in my room but when I try
to put them on the computer downstairs, it does not even let me access
the CD. Audio CDs work just fine though.
When you write to a CD by storing photos etc you need to take
another step before any other CD reader can access the data you have stored.
When you wrote to the CD originally you will have used a prioprietry software, along with that software there will be another menu line that says click here to make this CD readable by other computers.
I dont know what software you used to write to the CD but I suggest that you have a look for this text line on the menu to guide you thru this excercise..

You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs. When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same. You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:
Click All Programs.
Select Windows Media Player.
Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.
Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.
Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.
Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.
Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.
Look for the songs you want to burn.
In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.
You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.
To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.
After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.
It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc ex. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.
It is possible that when you edited the pictures on your computer, that you might have changed the file format when you resaved them.
Check the names of your picture files on the computer and compares the endings (.JPG or .BMP or whatever) between new pictures that come directly from your camera and pictures that you have edited and resaved.
If the formats are different at all, then your camera will probably not be able to read them. Cameras usually save pictures in one specific format and can only read them if they are in exactly that format. A computer on the other hand is much more flexible and can usually read or save pictures in many different formats.
Your computer should give you the option of saving a picture file in a different format if you want. When you edit and save the pictures on your computer next time, use the SAVE AS feature, this should give you the option of changing the name of the file as well as the file extension from a drop down list. Then just try saving the picture files in different formats until you find the one that your camera can read. Or just look in your cameras Owner's Manual and find out exactly what format the pictures need to be in for the camera to recognize and display them from a memory card.
You need a burning software to burn your picture files, music, or video. You can use NERO Burning ROM. Download it from HERE. You can use the "Data Burning" Feature in it to transfer your files into CD or DVD.
Not sure I understand exactly what you are trying to do, so if my answer is off, leave a comment with more information about the issue.
First you have to have CD burning software installed and a CD burner drive. Then
if you have a list of phone numbers in any type of file, open your CD burning software and tell it you want to burn a data disk. It should at some point ask what files you want to burn, point it toward your data file, select the data file, then burn the info to CD. If you save the phone info to a .txt file any computer should be able to read the data off the CD
Hope that answers your question
Make sure you are in the song mode so you transfer just the song and not all the other stuff. Copy a song in the song mode to your USB stick, then read it on the PC. To burn it as DATA (MIDI data is data) you must use a burning program like Nero...
If you are trying to make an audio CD that is a different story as you need to convert the MIDI file to an audio format such as MP3 or WAV before burning and AUDIO CD.
CD's are normally "read only", so the edited files cannot be saved back to the same CD.
You need to copy the documents you want to edit to your PC, edit, then save them to the PC. At some point, you may want to create a new CD with the edited files.
Put the CD in the computer, open up "My Computer". Double click on the CD (probably the "D:" drive) and right click on the file you want to edit, and choose "Copy".
Now go to "My Documents" on your computer (you can use the Start button to find it), and open that folder.
Right click again, and choose Paste.
Doubleclick the newly pasted file, and Word will allow you to edit and save it. You might want to use "Save As" instead of "Save" and give it a different name. So, Doc1.doc becomes Doc1a.doc or something similar.
There are other ways to do this - I'm giving you the most basic method.
