I am using the XP Files & Settings Transfer Wizard to transfer my OE email folders/files to my D drive CD.

All goes well until the writing to the CD-RW when I get the message - The Disk you inserted is not the correct one. Please insert disk 1.

The disk is a fresh, new one. I can't figure out what a 'correct' disk could be and what 'disk 1' could mean. I've never had such a message before but this is the first time I have done this operation.
Can anyone explain please?

XP Home SP 2

Do you extract the appropriate files to your hard drive using the OE function first?

No, I don't think so but please see the method I followed on http://www.iopus.com/guides/free-oe-backup.htm
This may do what is implied in your question but I did not actively do that.
In Part 3 of the instructions I entered my D drive for my CD-RW by the Browse button.
In Part 4 I selected files only and followed Part 5 deleteing all but the email file having an .eml extension. (I was glad to see it was not a .dbx which other methods engender and are unopenable, at least for me!)

The wizard collected this info as in Part 6 then I got the message as in my first post.

Thanks for your response and I hope the above will enable you to spot where my problem lies.
