Either you have single click to open files option turned on in your Folders Option menu (start - control panel - folder options) or you have a defective mouse where the main button is somewhat stuck up. Also, you can use right click for more options of your mouse actions.

I have several files on the computer which I would like to move to a CD....i.e. pictures, or documents. I am doing something wrong because it does not allow me to copy a file to a CD???? probably my lack...


You have to burn the files to a CD, if you have Windows XP or Vista it should do this for you, the reason you are getting the error is because unlike the hard drive, the CD is not a read / write device (ie once you copy files there they are there forever, unless you are using a re-recordable cd)
You must have a CD drive that is capable of recording data, this will be a CDRW or a DVDRW drive, most computers now have these, but if yours is only a DVDRom or a CDROM, you will not be able to copy.

To burn files to disc, Put a CD in the drive
Then get all the files you want to copy and put them in a folder (saves time)
Now click on the CD drive icon in MY computer (right click and open)
Drag the contents of the folder you created onto the cd drive which you have opened
You may get asked to format the disc, this is normal (prepare the disc)
You will then see the files you have added (says "files ready to be burned to disc")
Right mouse click on the empty space in the area where the files have been added and a menu will come up, with the command "burn to disc"
Once complete the disc will eject and you need to press finish

You can add about 700MB of files onto each CD

I put my memory card into laptop, message says my card is full, and yet i delete my pics from camera., do i have to delete from memory card also, if so how do i do that.


Did you delete the pictures from the internal camera memory and not the SD card? An easy way to solve this problem would be to insert the card into your computer and open up "My Computer". In here you should see your memory card mounted as a usable drive. Open up the SD card, select everything in it by pressing "Control" + "A" and then hitting delete. This will clean everything off of the card. If you want to save the files from the card first, simply make a folder somewhere on your PC and drag all of the files from the SD card into that folder after pressing "Control" + "A". If you are still getting an error stating your card is full after removing them this way you may need to re-format the card or it may be malfunctioning.

My problem is how to download a song in a usb please cmplete instraction


I am assuming you are trying to download the song onto a USB Drive or USB Music Player so when you Download the song all operating systems are slightly different as are browsers so I am giving these instructions based on internet Explorer and Windows 7. Click to download then you will get a popup in the bottom of your internet window asking if you want to run or save or cancel. Next to the Save button is a small arrow click the arrow and move down the drop down list to SAVE AS and click on that a new windows browser window will open and you can sellect what to name the file you are downloading and where to save the file, on the left is a tree view of the files folders, ect on your PC if you scrol to and click on computer it will then list all the Main Drives ie: Hard drives cd/dvd rom drives and all removable media/Drives including your USB drive Click on that and click OPEN/SAVE if it was open then it will open and list anything already on that drive just click SAVE now to add your new file to the drive. Alternativly You can download onto your PC anywhere then open the File location and alongside that window in a new window open your USB drive to view the files Then just drag and drop or Copy and paste the desired files to the USB drive
Hope this Helps!!!

I cant load moovies to my m.p.3


Check the specification of your MP3 playerto determine the type of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 playersuse are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then itis an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video fileto a format that your MP3 player uses.

I need clear instructions on how to transfer data from Windows XP laptop to Windows 7 desktop by Kingston DT1/2GB


I assume the USB pen is formatted and empty.
Place the Pen in a free USB on your laptop and with Explorer select the file/s you want to copy. Highlight the file names and with "My Computer" open drag the files onto the Pen.
When you have finished, remove the Pen and place it in the Win7 desktop.
Open Explorer on your Desktop and select the files in the Pen. Right hand mouse click on them using the move command and place them on your desktop.
When you have finished you can then make folders to move them into on your Win7 Desktop.
Hope this explains it for you.

I have put a cd onto my computer as a folder how


You will have to convert the audio CD to mp3 before you can load it on your phone. Open Windows Media Player, go to tools (right click on the top bar if the menu is not available), and click options. Under the RIP tab, change the format to MP3 and select the quality you want (suggest middle of slider bar). Click OK and insert your CD. Now click on the RIP tab at the top of Media Player and rip the tracks you want to your computer. After you do this, you can then copy the newly created MP3 files to your phone.

How do can you burn a music cd


First the best thing to do is put all your music from you CD's from to your computer, by using windows media player and clicking on RIP CD and press start RIP. Once you rip all files to Hard Drive use your burner program. I use Nero, but most burning programs using similar fuctionality. If you only want to copy entire CD instead, just go to burning program and select COPY CD. Follow on screen instruction.

Depending on your burner program you can burn audio CD's quite easily. I myself use Nero and can guide you through the process.
Depending on how you have your desktop setup, I click on me Nero Smart Start. If you don't, then see if you have it under program files and run it.

FOR FULL PROOF RECORDINGS USE NERO AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Once started move mouse pointer on to the audio symbol
  • Click on Audio CD or MP3 CD (Audio Cd for all stereo systems with Cd player and mp3 for only mp3 players. MP3 hold files of music in megabytes and Audio is in minutes and can only fit 89mins on disk)
  • Now a separate box opens up and click on add
  • Another window will open. Need to select My Documents on left hand side in blue writing (That's where Media player stores music)
  • Then double click on My Music Folder under the name category.
  • Then double click on any of the folders of music for example I might have a folder of Mariah Carey, Metalicca and so on and click again on another directory(separate directories if more the one cd if some band here). In each folder will be the music files or names
  • Onec chosen folder click on each individual song and press add, you can also preview each track if no name and only track number
  • You can also click the Green arrow in the right top hand corner to go back to previous folders and click on the ones require to select other songs from other folders.
  • Click on Finish, check if you need more music and add if so, if you have too many deltee them
  • Then click next
  • Make sure blank CD-R 80mins is in drive
  • Select the writing speed and set to 16 speed, as some CD-Players are older and can't read above 16x
  • You can select also How many copies if you like
  • Click on Burn and wait till complete, about 10mins to burn.
  • Once complete click on ok to successful burn and close down Nero. CD will spit out and play CD in a CD player
  • one perfect recording done!
