Trouble using zoombrowser EX with windows vista ultimate
Every time I try to burn photos to disc my PC tells me I don't have a CD/DVD dive capable of performing this task. I know I do! Is there some sort of incompatibility between Vista & Zoom browser EX? Help please, I need to back up my photos.
Re: Trouble using zoombrowser EX with windows vista...
My new PowerShot SD780 IS is totaly awsome but the ZoomBrowser software
provided on the CD is completely nonfunctional. The only thing that
works is PhotoStitch. Everything else needed to be sent to the trash

You don't have to. DVD's and CD's are already formatted from factory. But if you are having problems to record on (burn) them probably your computer is not capable for DVD burn, just CD's. But if it is equipped for burning then try this: See also
Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.
Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.
In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.
In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.
Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:
Live File System
Click Next to prepare the disc.
Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.
Open your Pictures library from the Start menu and select your desired photos.
Select the photos and folders you want to copy by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking their icons. Or, to select all the photos within a folder, press Ctrl+A.
Need to select photos from multiple folders? Don't select any photos or folders in this step. Proceed with the rest of the burn process and Windows 7 will open an empty window showing the newly inserted disc's contents: nothing. Drag and drop the photos you want to burn into that window. When you're ready, go back to the Pictures Library and click Burn.
Insert a blank CD or DVD into your writable disc drive.
Choose this option when you intend for other PCs to read the disc. Windows 7 treats the disc much like a folder, letting you copy additional photos to the disc later.
With a CD/DVDplayer: Choose this option to create discs that play on CD and DVD players attached to TVs. Don't choose this unless you plan to view the disc on a TV. You can't add any images to this disc later, so be sure to get them all selected the first time.
Type a name for your disc and click Next.
Click the Burn or Burn to Disc button again, if necessary.

I think you burn into CD\DVD is incorrect. Recopy any Software is OK using ISO, but to find out that your burn that into proper ISO also, It will not work. To burn is again is extracted from ISO back to Bootable Windows Vista DVD. Here is a a tip, use another program like Nero to burn into image, the file is .NRG or .ISO... Or for easy tip, try COPY DISC for assurance that it will run again as is. Good luck!
Sorry to say, but a CD drive cannot read DVD's. You need a DVD reader. Thus, the CD drive will not recognize DVD media and tell you no valid disc is in the drive. I recommend buying a DVD RW (reader/writer), as they are inexpensive and enable you to burn DVDs as well as read them.
I have two LITE-ON DVD DRW LH-18A1P on drive (E:) and drive (F:) It has gone from everything working great to not being able to burn a DVD. When placing a DVD into either (E:) or (F:) it shows up in my Window's Explorer as a CD drive.... Only allowing me to burn a CD in these drives....
