I can't seem to back up my pictures to disc. I can only put one or two pics on a disc and then it says there is not enough space. I have tried putting them in a zip file, but again, not enough space. I have already lost all of my pics once, and I really don't want it to happen again. Is there anyway I can put them in another sort of file and then save them to disc? OR is there at least a website or somewhere else I can upload all of my pics in case something happens to my PC and I lose everything?? I'm running Windows XP

I can't help you with the issue, but I can offer other options.
One of them may work for you while you try to get the problem sorted out.

1) You can upload your photos to a site such as http://photobucket.com/
You will have to create an account first. And it may take a while to get them uploaded if you have
a lot of photos.

2) Put them on a flash drive. Figure out the total size of the photos, and purchase a flash drive a bit bigger.
Copy them to the drive.

3) An external hard drive, if your finances will permit a purchase. Copy the pics to the drive. This is a good option because you can back up documents, pics, music, etc on a regular basis.

I have photos backed up on photobucket, 2 external drives, and cd's. One way or another I'll get my photos back if my drive crashes.

Photos range anywhere from 50KB-250KB I guess depending on the resolution and size I had the camera set at
The disk size is 700MB
The files are in JPEG format

What program are you using, to try and burn these images?
Putting them in a zipped file won't save much space, since jpeg is already a compressed format.
Have you tried a slower burning speed?
Were there any error messages?
If so, what was the exact error message?

It just says that there is not enough room on the disk, and it states that when there is only 9-10 pictures I'm trying to save to the disk.
